This piece of work was used to illustrate a 'nagging doubt'. I wanted to explore the process of how a nagging doubt is formed. More importantly perhaps, what is considered a nagging doubt? To me, it is did I remember to lock the front door or Did I switch my hair straighteners off?
I was trying to express the idea through illustrating the mechanical process- a bit like a factory with various stages. ie. 1.The action, cooking---> 2.The thought, Did I turn the oven off?---> 3.Remembering, What did I do after I took the cake out of the oven? ---> Did I turn it off? Yes? No? ---> 4. Nagging Doubt kicks in.
Once again, I had fun working with mixed media, including, pen, metal nuts and bolts, fabric and acetate.
