the culmination of my rumpelstiltskin project, im very satisfied with the final outcome and particularly enjoy the messages projected. slightly chaotic but i believe it works.
continuing my work with circle and line, i decided to take it to a larger scale. i wanted to see what affect, if any, it would have upon the image. i chose to keep the arrows and line at the same scale as previous, this also asked me to be dedicated to the work. i became immersed with the process, as is often the case with my work, its embedded within my subconscious. well really my conscious, im well aware that i don't like to rush through my work.
i did some work for solent up at excel house in london at the ucas fair, i took a few photographs on my phone (my camera was otherwise unavailable) i was intrigued by the size and space of the rooms and giant lettering. the images are a little 'generic tourist' but i blame my poor phone-camera. busy day, a lie in tomorrow will be well deserved.
this is a continuation of my current work on rumplestiltskin, i have chosen to focus on the imagery of the story and stray away from more literal forms. using simple pen and ink (and my trusty scalpel)i worked in a journal and then compiled scans and images with some very primitive photoshop skills. i am pleased with it, however, i feel i need to achieve this again on a larger scale without the digital aid, it doesn't feel 'real' enough to me.
today we had a project named sound and vision, which did not seem to live up to my eager expectations, but frankly i wasn't in the best of moods. i decided to respond to the sounds with line and shape and just really see where it would take me. i am fascinated by the process of creation and believe that it often outshines the outcome. its far more engaging to focus simply on the making of an image than be entrapped by what you want, think, or are told the end should be. i felt it was important to connect the image from my journal to the wall of the space i was working in, half through experimentation but also it gives the images a chance to stand together or alone. by doing so it leaves a mark like a shadow or a footprint and ultimately... why not?
