RSA project

My project was at the New Lynn RSA. What influenced me to do my project was my interest in New Zealand History and family ties to the New Zealand war. What further intrigued me once i started my research was armistice day also known as remembrance day. I took a series of images at the RSA and chose 5 to showcase for our Studio Open Day.

Here are a few photos of my final images:




The link above is for my presentation before editing and after feedback. I got suggested to add more images and that perhaps the double exposure idea was too obvious, and that the idea of having text over images sounds interesting. The following is edited.

C+D edited

The things I’ve changed/tweaked is my idea. Instead of having double exposure images, I’ll be placing The Ode in English and in Maori one language per image which also means instead of having 3 A3 sized images I’ll be having 2 instead. My images will be addressing “We will remember them” them referring to the soldiers. And I also have provided examples/inspiration.

C+D Write up

The word I anonymously chose was “Ascend” which in other words means to rise. I started off with 30 digital works using Photoshop and Illustrator. The reason why I chose the pins that I did on my ” C+D in class digital” board on Pinterest is that I liked some of the ideas given and how they slightly portrayed the word “ascend” and they also inspired other ideas also.

In the second week of the assignment, I generated 30 tactile works using black and white thick card black and white paint and black charcoal. I preferred working with these materials because of the different things I could do with them and that helped portrayed my word. My pins also inspired my works.

The third week I created 5 3D works and hung/placed them in ways that illustrate Ascend then took 30 photographs of them. The works I have pinned to my board have influenced and inspired my 3D prototypes in what I could create and how I can present my works.

The last task we were given was to create 30 hybrid works. A combination of 2 or more of what we did previously. I created a few works combining my digital works and images of my 3D works and some combining my digital works and tactile works on the computer. My Pinterest board for this task includes a range of different types of hybrid art works for me to get inspiration from such as combinations of photographs and paint, photographs and ink and collaged images etc. in which I settled with digital and 3D and digital and tactile.
