New work: Community in art
My current project is called 'Community in Art'. It literally has to focus around the borough where I live. It's split into two parts for two different teachers. Part A is planning the taking of the photos, test shots, research of the borough, observations and all that stuff. Part B is the graphics side. We have to use the images and our computer knowledge (good job I'm a whizz in Photoshop, aye?!) to product a final poster advertising an exhibition in February that everyone's invited to, to come and view the work.
To be honest, the whole project is a pile of piss and it's the most boring one I have and will ever have to do. Even though I adore Photoshop and everything you can do with it, I hate my graphics lessons and I think they're rather pointless. Just my opinion though!
Here's some photos I took the other day whilst feeling half inspired. I've had a few ideas for this project but the one I was actually going to do is too good to waste on such a stupid project, so I'm saving that for my FMP (final major project). More on that later!
I don't know if this is my final idea, I just need some opinions. The back of my house (kitchen, mum's room & bathroom) look out onto the gardens. At the end of all the gardens is a train line which the district line actually runs through! I had an "idea" of kinda 'spying' on my neighbours personal space through the view of a window which is my own personal space. You can tell some are clearly looked after more than others which I thought would be a good idea to explore too. I literally live around a thousand old people!
What do you think? I'm not after comments like "i like them, they're good" etc. I want proper criticism! Obviously don't be a nob and write mean things like I'm shit etc etc etc. This post isn't an excuse for negative comments from stupid people. I feel so stressed out at the moment hence the way I'm typing negatively. I don't know if that's coming across via a blog post but I'm literally the most unhappy person at the moment. I just want to curl up in a ball and ignore all of the deadlines and commitments I have in my life!
