Methodology that I started exploring this year is making a life

size scenarios, almost like a set designs for the stage, using

human body, animals with the use of props (objects or 3d models)

to create photographs and films. The Hanging Womb is a piece by

itself as well as a prop for the future film I’ll be making.


Some photos from the exhibition

Process photos. Frist I 3D modelled this shape in Rhino,

than I created a skeleton, used laser cutting to cut the shapes,

assembled it together, spray painted and finally covered it with

fibreglass and resin.

Initially I was suppose to put light inside the womb but

because of some technical issues I could not do it.

Later I will attach light inside it to take more professional photographs.

Shining Hanging Womb.
