This is my initial response to Philip Larkin's poem, 'Solar'. I have avoided reading any other formal analysis of the text at the moment as i think that retaining a personal interpretation is important. I used a variety of papers, fabrics and textures to cut out simple shapes and structures related to the imagery I found within the poem. I think the cut out technique works well, but feel the image is a little naive and feminine in terms of interpreting the text. This could be altered by adjusting the colour scheme, but i am going to also look into different textures and fabric's that could give a more bespoke and sophisticated essence. I also think that deeper analysis of the text would be benficial.
