The naming of work has always been something that I have struggled with, so it is no surprise that with the pre-degree show opening this week I am blanking and a title for my work is proving difficult.

I feel that it is a case of “short and sweet” being a far more attractive and effective output.

A list of current possibilities;

“WHITE PILLARS”

 

“DRIFT”

 

“DRIFTING”

 

“PEDESTAL”

 

“SUSTAINABLE SUPPORT”

 

“SUSTENTATION”

I want to be able to link the turbines with the land in which they stand, without making it too obvious (as in “the link between” or “unnatural structures”). I feel that one word looks smart and sleek – you shouldn’t have to justify your work through the title, in my opinion – it should be a slight insight to what you are exploring and make the viewer more inquisitive towards it.
