Review of Daily Practice Installations

Fisher’s Piece

The first thing I noticed was the biscuits in the bowl. I see what fisher likes to do everyday, carve and drink/coffee. The piece is on a table and the textures seem to be rough and smooth. My initial interest does change over time, originally I saw the biscuits as the focus but now I see the tea kettle on the right hand side standing out more. What’s interesting is the piece encompasses many different materials that all clash together. The materials are used as they are supposed to be used. As I spend more time with the work it becomes more engaging because there is so much to look at and pay attention to. On a second look the wood shavings start to stand out more. As I view the piece more and more it makes me wonder what his overall daily practice was. While overall it’s very interesting to look at, to make the installation even more engaging. I would try to add more rhythm to the piece. What I mean by rhythm is the piece seems almost unbalanced, everything is randomly placed, making it a little confusing for the viewer. I’m really not sure of the narrative the piece is trying to get at.

Karleigh’s Piece
