I have selected some of images which I was interested in. For example, ethnic group, nature elements and emotion. For the first collage, I have picked some wide space, ethnic group and colorful images. These images have inspired me to focus on the accessories, environment and smoke in the right handed image at the bottom.
For the second collage, the topic is about nature elements. I have used water, wood, flower and sand image in this collage. As this can represent our daily life, we need this type of elements our daily life. food and drinks, buildings, paper which is surrounding our life. These images make me think of the natural beauty which can linked with my pathway. I would like to pick up some branches, flower and something which can symbolize water.
Third collage, I have picked up some photos form the newspaper which show the emotion: Happiness, shocked. What I think emotion can show the true feeling of a person and help people to create the first image or impression. I think this could a playful, funny way to express what I feel towards something.
As we have language class in every Wednesday, we have to present our concept or what we done. After I have presented my concept is linked to my three collages. The tutor said my concept is linked and it is connected to each other. However, It is lack of research so I would like to find out some artist research or native american research to support my work. I would to explore on the colour, role and characteristic of native american (maybe do some research on the difference between the leader and the normal stage citizens). I also found that they have use feather and red ,blue colors to do a headset and make up.So I would like to apply the colors and the pattern on my outcome.
PROJECT FOUR 5/7
We started our two-days project today and we started to have the live drawing. I like the process of the live drawing as I think it is interesting, we can draw the models or objects using different media immediately and quick sketching. Everyone need to pick one plots in order to create the storyboard for others to do sketching.
For my group, we started a story from defend to romance. For other groups, record a story of bus journey and recorded a story o submarine to desert island cannabilism. I found that their stories are interesting and contain entertainment. It is better than our boring daily working days. We also required to pick an object and do material research- identify the characteristic of an object. Me and my group-mate have picked a horn(?) object and video taking. We made a GIF to react the object. The idea was inspired the hot steam hot pot in Hong Kong to give the customers surprise.
Today,we have different workshops to join in ,which is really interesting as I like making some handcrafts rather than sitting in the classroom. So I have took the casting course,metal, plastic and print workshop. I have used plaster and clay to make a sculpture which is represent the habitat in an abstract way, round shape with soem net texture. Also I have used metal- copper and aluminum, to form a triangle shape tent with a flag-like shape.
Today, we have contextual practice and tutorial as usual. After reviewing my workflow (reflection and research), I found that I have lots of areas to be improved as my reflection is too simple and not deep enough. Tutor told me that when I wrote the reflection, always think about why.
For contextual practice, we talked about drawing and we had a three minutes quick sketch. I like the sketching practice as I think my idea and action work in same speed, reflect our thinkings or ideas immediately. It is a useful drawing practice. During the practice, we have to draw 30 sketches. However, I didn’t achieve the task as I just finished 20sketches. I have drawn something which is related to myself and patterns and eyes sketch. I really like this practice as it contains excitement and immediate ideas. I think I can apply this practice on my sketchbook as it is effective (less time consuming and effective results).
