Iqfa Hudda portfolio

Iqfa Hudda produced this body of work in her final year at secondary school. She used the woven pattern of a Maori flax basket (kete) as inspiration for an investigation of the grid format. She photographed the vegetables carried in the kete, exploring the pictorial elements of shape and form, arrangement, repetition and pattern, while also referencing their use in display and advertising.

What might the basket symbolise?

The last panel includes black and white images of a hand placing photographs of the manipulated vegetables onto gridded game-board surfaces? What do you think this symbolises? Why?
