A Composition based on Power

Our brief was to pick a word from the museum project a couple of weeks previous. In the end I chose the word ‘POWER’. After this our group produced a mind map and sketches on how there are different ways in which power can be perceived, such as electrical or nuclear power, or in other forms such as political power or strength. This was a great help as it enabled me to expand on my ideas and gather new information which could be included within my design.

The concept I ended up using was a less obvious one, based on the theory that time has power and control over everyone, much like a dictator. My choice was down to that it was a less obvious but very interesting way to portray power and control.

This quick sketch gives a small insight into how my final piece will look. The clock face will replace the puppeteers head while he is controlling a puppet. The reason behind this is that it will symbolise how time has control over us. The only thing I am struggling with is the background. I have an idea of using cogs like the inside of clock, but I am unsure how this will piece together with the rest of my design.
