LOVED THIS!!got millions of ideas and MASSIVELY TIED INTO WHAT IM TRYING TO LEARN AND DEVELOP IN TERMS OF SKILLS AND LOVED IT FOR ITS CREATIVITY AND WHAT I WANT TO WORK TOWARDS ARTISTICLY!
The brief was to make a small concertina book dealing with the idea of contrast. London is a hugely diverse place full of contrasting elements. we were given a list from which to pick a subject.i chose BLACK AND WHITE
i cant express how energized i got from this, i could litrally make my entire fmp book dealing with just this alone. i immediately went straight round the college and surrounding area taking rubbings and collected imagery to work with
i deliberately used photoshop to try and make a collage as thats what im trying to learn at the moment but there is just such a massive amount of creative freedom and exploration and sheer utter creativity to be found with this. i could use this with the monoprinting, even just use deifferent media and explore that and contrast that with images. ill also look at ways i could pick contrasting elements of london as im exploring the idea of 'forgotten' or 'broken' london
-im interested in decay and things you would otherwise overlook, such as abandoned buildings ,cracks,broken windows etc, and contrast that with the shiny touristy london. this would make a brilliantly visual chapter.
MORE ON THIS SOON!!!!!
