Molly Horrox

The relationship between art and design has long been the subject of debate. We are quick to categorise an object as either art or design according to perceptions of function, placement and context. Of interest to Mollie Imogen is the way in which we exist in and interact with spaces. This work is designed to bridge the gap between interior design and fine art: in a practical way it might be a splashback for a kitchen, wallpaper or a collectable piece of art. The final exhibition piece is a prototype designed to demonstrate how these shapes might eventually be seen in a domestic space. It challenges perceptions of conventional living spaces, inviting the audience to be overwhelmed by unrelenting repetitive shapes, whilst taking notice of the unpredictable yet geometrically regular surfaces.
