As the sunrays hit, we observed many different patterns forming on the water that day. However, it was the little pearl-like gems that really stood out and so became the inspiration for this design. From some of the photographs we had taken, we explored the shapes and densities of the light forms. We noticed that to capture movement, we would need to work with sizing.
The closer the water was to the sun's rays, the larger the resulting shadow. Therefore, as the waves moved the water around we noticed how the little gem-like shapes changed in size. Concentration was another key issue. The smaller forms seemed far more concentrated, while the larger forms appeared to have considerably more space between them. We drew many shapes, making sure we never had anything too perfect. Then, when we had identified the forms, we experimented with placement until we were happy to have identified a constellation that reflected our reality.
