Concept Drawings

The focus of my dissertation is, if the facial features of a sculpture can evoke an uncanny feeling in the viewer. Therefore I created a concept drawing of what my sculpture will more or less look like when it is produced and placed in its proper setting. I want people to feel slightly claustrophobic and uncomfortable, possibly quite scared when viewing my sculpture, which will be 80cm.

The sculpture will be placed on a chair facing a mirror, in a room which will be 2m/2m/2m. The viewer will have to walk into the room from behind the sculpture therefore seeing both the sculpture and themselves in the mirror, automatically interacting with it. There is also enough space for the viewer to walk around the work.

The material that it will be made out of is Dragon Skin FX pro and Soma Foma foam. This will give the piece a fleshy and tactile look which will hopefully create feelings of uncertainty and discomfort. I want to also incorporate hand poked hair so as to enhance the realistic effect in the work.
