This project is meant to represent a creative breakthrough. The chair is done in black and white using the technique of photo transfer to show old childhood memories. The top of the chair is done in origami to show the birth of creativity. This was left blank to show the future in contrast to the past depicted in the chair.
The process of making this chair was to first assemble it, then use gesso to cover the entire chair. The next step was to print out a series of black and white pictures in reverse that would be transferred onto the chair. The chair and the pictures were covered with acrylic matte medium and left to dry for 3 days. Then using a sponge and a toothbrush I carefully removed the top layers of the paper to reveal the black and white pictures underneath. Finally, I covered the entire chair with gel medium to maintain a glossy finish
