Thinking more about methods of revealing information in my illustrations - everthing we know about anything was unknown until it was discovered, and I think the best way to represent the unknown is through negative space. SO, I’ve been thinking about ways of having hidden meaning in the negative space of my illustrations, i.e. embossing, die-cutting, layering....
As one of the aims of the census is to ascertain what is ‘unknowable’ about marine life in our oceans, this could be represented by having some nonsense elements in my work in order to slightly mislead the viewer, and make them have to look a bit harder to find out the true meaning behind the illustrations.
