Pop-up Forest (ed. of 15)

 

ForĀ Pop-up Forest, Hobbs drew inspiration from:

a) The strategic use of makeshift “pop-up forests” in the First and Second World War.

b) The pop-up book, Untitled, which was made for his solo show at DKP, Be Careful in the Working Radius (2013).

Hobbs uses leaf shapes from the Newlands forest in Cape Town as a camouflaged pattern across the surface of a pop-up plan for a stereotypical tree shape. The process was complicated by the overlapping of these sources, which enticesĀ the viewer to make sense of the tree outline and the overlaid leaf pattern simultaneously.
