History of Art and Museum Studies Student,
University of Leeds, UK. I have 1 year left in the beautiful safety net that is Uni and this is my journey from student to (hopefully) employment.
London-based artist Zadok Ben David created this incredible installation using 12,000 cut steel botanical specimens modeled from old textbook illustrations, each embedded in a thin layer of sand. On first encountering the sprawling array of plants they appear completely black, thus the installation’s title: Blackfield. However when viewed from the opposite side, a field of black turns into a wall of color.
