MACRO|Micro: Some thoughts for inspiration by Vianne Sleypen

My first thought was what a perfect theme as you can interpret it in so many ways. But then it is so hard too choose what to do…

A thought is to make an ordinary daily object huge.:

An example of a supersized less ordinary object is, the DNA-tower in Kings park, a microscopic small molecule represented as a remarkable landmark:

helix

Basically every felt piece is micro/macro: The wool-top fibres are the micro and everything after that is the macro.  The workshop with Marjolein Dallinga had Micro/macro elements in it by making smaller felt pieces and unite them in one bigger piece. If you make different sizes, whatever object or shape, you’re making something macro / micro. Not everything has to be big as in ‘huge’….

The photography of e.g. Richard Woldendorp is a good example going from macro to micro:

Forest River, Kimberley, Western Australia, Australia. A tidal river system, north-west of Wyndham. Taken 2003 with a Fuji 6x9 camera, a 65mm lens and Velvia 100 film. Appeared in the 2006 ‘Coastline’ exhibition at Boutwell Draper Gallery in Sydney, the 2006 Melbourne Art Fair and the 2007 ‘Richard Woldendorp’ exhibition at Goddard de Fiddes Gallery in Perth. Also in the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra collection.

Colour is a big passion of mine.

You can also think of colours if you’re thinking about macro or micro. For everyone a ‘macro’ or ‘micro’ colour is different, because colours give a personal feeling or sensation.
