Primitive Streak is the aspect of the [HSF] archive that I have decided to focus on. Helen made a collection of dresses based on 9 stages of child development. Like Helen, I intend to make work responding to each of the stages yet, rather than using textiles, I am going to use found clips on YouTube as the basis for a video. By ironically pairing clips with biological statements, I aim to overtly distort them and give them a new context. Helen’s work also breaches the relationship between science and art. Science and art are often considered polar opposites, as are technology and craft. Through making, I hope to highlight how they can interact.
