PROJECT DESCRIPTION


ABOUT HANGIT

HangIt is an interactive modular painting suitable for business and living spaces, which allows the user to quickly and easily change the final look. It consists of two components, a base and images attached to it, which can be rotated and modified. Each individual part thus represents an independent image, and the parts on the basis form a larger one. Because the image is modular, the user can also specify the size of the final installation.

INTERACTION

Since the purpose of the product is also to maintain culture and visual communications and that the final look provides a diverse taste of the individual, the user has the option of ordering a variety of images, as well as printed graphics. Storing and using additional new images offers an opportunity to reuse and extend its durability. Hangit offers the possibility of installation from any number of images, any color combinations and thus a diverse number of dimensions.



PRODUCTION


The Hangit is made of a dezinfected, sanded and acrylic-painted wooden table top. Original table is made out of recycled wood chips fused together. The installation of paintings is made from shelves cut on 20 x 20 cm. Technique used are acrylic and mixed media on wood.



INSPIRATION

This ECO product made of wood is the source of discarded, no longer usable or desirable furniture. The product thus helps to prolong the use of the raw material, ie wood, which would otherwise be discarded and useless. It is a disinfected and sanded product on which natural acrylic paints are applied, and with the help of magnets it enables an easy and permanent way of hanging. As degradable in nature and recycled product, it contributes to waste reduction and water footprint.

TECHNICAL PROPERTIES

Individual paintings are 20 x 20 x 2 cm in size. The functionality of the product is demonstrated mainly in rooms that have walls of non-classical dimensions or angles. The modular painting thus interferes with the architecture and interior design, as it can be adapted to the space. With fast-moving trends, the user can quickly and completely change the look of a final image by easily attaching new paintings to an existing base or even combining them if desired. Each user can create their own unique product and allows the possibility of their own creativity and therefore size.



RESEARCH


Painting installations are made of canvas. According to the data comparison, the footprint of water is smaller in wood processing than in canvas production. Source: watercalculator.org



CHALLENGE

The biggest challenge was to create a stable and fast attachment of paintings (tiles) to the base. The experiments included a two-component adhesive, standard pins, and magnets of varying strength in combination with a metal plate.

The Summer Moments installation

The Summer Moments installation of 27 wooden tiles measuring 70 x 220 x 2 cm was created of an individual tiles that measure 20 x 20 x 2 cm.

The various techniques of acrylic and other colors illustrate the controlled and uncontrolled falls of paint on the base, which thus symbolize the multifaceted nature of our personality, and especially the personality of the author. Diversity thus not only reveals our outwardly obvious statuses and characteristics, but above all touches on parts that are fundamentally obscured and at the same time forced through the character of an individual.

Various acrylic techniques of applying paint, as well as intentionally caused anomalies of the base show the result of the work, which strives, compared to the work Summer Moments, to greater control and authority in its related forms, but also emphasizes the artistic side of the author. As a greater emphasis on the personal characteristics of intimate mental states, the author emotionally illustrates them.

Autumn Moments Installation

The work also offers a reflection on the connection of individuals with the family, with the group, with the community, with the world and, last but not least, puts the individual at the center of the universe in order to show his or her smallness, trapped in the web.

The connection in the work also hints at possibilities that are unknown and therefore allow for both positive and negative outcomes, and make us think about what both are, where the milestones of the states of rationality and individual reality stand, where our imagination tends and how it affects to our future.

FIRST WAVE, Acrylic Painting

is an abstract painting measuring 60 x 60 cm, illustrated with various acrylic techniques on canvas. It was created in the summer of 2019.

The acrylic falls in turns on the canvas and depicts a circle, a repetition, this endless spiral that can be perceived from different angles as a circle or even as a line. The spiral shows periods of life or patterns… learned, brought up, repeated. The recurring rail leads us along the same paths, thoughts, not least mistakes.

SECOND WAVE, Acrylic Painting

is an abstract painting from spring 2020, of size 80 x 100 cm, illustrated with various acrylic techniques on canvas.

The ideological arrival of the current world situation and current trends, social socializing and restraint, conspiracy theories and breaking of established ways, questions about the future… circles compete with each other and create a harmony of intertwining ideologies that in some places meet and again completely disintegrate. They are driven by an external factor that, through our inner influences and beliefs, prolongs and stretches their existence and propels this force forward.

SNOWFLAKE, Installation

is an ecological painting consisting of four 20 x 20 x 4 cm large canvases attached to a wooden base measuring 50 x 50 x 4.5 cm. The paintings can be turned, and the wooden base is a carefully renovated piece of furniture, which as such offers further use and takes care of the environment in its own domain.

The mixed technique of acrylics on canvas is placed on a light, processed wooden base and together it reminds of observing the environment through a window and creates any patterns or objects left to the imagination. The picture emerges through the periods and shows the possibility of renewal, the death of the old and the birth, which also brings changes every time. The latter may arise in fear of the unknown, a cross-section of established habits, and at the same time the image fills with optimistic hope for the flowering and budding of the coming unknown future.
