The one thing about this strange bubbly mounded bits of synthetic shiny material is that they work really well when put over another strong interesting surface. If like me you like looking at things from different angles and indifferent lighting situations then this is perfect for you.
I laid one of the samples over a piece of bright yello scrim. The shadows are really appealing. The shapes are very random and fractured but if you keep manipulating the pile of fabric you get some intriguing structures.
After taking some photos I ran one of the pictures through some iPhone photo editing apps and came up with a couple of interesting results. The apps defined the lines (with a view to finding areas to draw) and added some sweet extras,
There are textile possibilities here, both to work with the original fabrics and to replicate the marks and shapes with stitch.
As before I returned to my sketchbook and made some effort into recording the textural qualities of the samples and capturing the chaos created by all the different lines, textures and shadows. I also had a go at simplifying the lines and working with some colour.
