Distortion - glitch art

Text

As I have found an artist who did photography - Kerry Nourrice, I have noticed the glitch art is interesting as it has create an overlapping effect. What I think, glitch effect can bring a strong visual attraction and emphasis the layers. It makes me think about the routine and the overlapping layers with different colours. I think it challenged my expectations by the colour of each layers as sometimes it shows the colour different from red, green, blue. As you can see my final image, it contains green, purple and yellow. As the artist experiment how glitch effect do the distortion through lines and blocks to show different type of texture.The artist likes how the chunks of ruined and missing images create new layers and elements to the pictures and explore to see if it creates a successful distorted effect. 

I would like to apply a bit glitch effect on my final outcome as I want to put focus on the pose of me and the mono colour of the whole image. As the glitch effect help me enhance the visual effect of the image rather than be the focus.

I have found another artist which works on oil paint ,acrylic and indian ink on paper and canvas. I found that he used  black and white often on his works, which inspired me to use monochrome photo shooting on my final work. Another reason that I would like to use monochrome photography is black and white can represent myself as these two colours are my favourite colours and I think they are meaningful. I tried to apply similar composition on my final and tried how was the effect. I found a place contain stairs which looks like the artist's works.

Thomas Dausell always focus on the space changing and transformation which contain constantly moving in visual. He captures the relation between construction and demolition in a repeatedly interaction. What I think, Thomas has used different tone of black and white to create different layers and also create illusions. I think the illusion idea makes me think about combining the glitch effect with monochrome colors.I would like to do more experiment on the combination of the illusion and colours by photoshop and tried to discover which colours would be the best.

TATE MODERN

I have been to TATE MODERN and I have seen different type of artwork. I want to focus on the colour and the texture of the images after I have visited this site. I have gain a lot and I woudl like to combine different type of style into my project, such as the dark element, lazy in order to create a dim, negative mood.For the yarn, It inspired me to put it into the hair part, for example, make the hair looks so messy or full of texture.

I did some research on the clothing of the ethic group and I want to discover on the materials.For native americans, they mainly used animal hides for hunting food. Some of the tribes such as the Cherokee and Iroquois used deerskin, the Plains Indians used buffalo skin and the Inuit from Alaska used seal or caribou skin. 

For clothing, 
Some tribes make clothing from plants or weaving thread. These included the Navajo and Apache, who learned how to make woven blankets and tunics, and the Seminole of Florida. I also found that they usually use feather ,fur and teeth to do the accessories. I think it is related to the environment, people hunted animal and most of the material was from the body of the animals.

HAJI CHILONGA

I found Haji Chilonga as the colour of his works contain red ,blue which is the main colour of the native american and it is a bit abstract. The works makes me think the nature ethic group,  Africa as it shows the painting mark is soft and a bit like positive emotion on it.  As the painting contains brown, red and blue, it looks like in Africa. And the painting mark is soft and it looks like creating a relax and peaceful mood of the painting.

I  want to put high contrast and monochrome color on my final outcome so I have found a photographer- VEDI DJOKICH, I like his work as it contain high contrast and it is quiet on visual. I like the visual language of these series of photograph as it is clear . So I want to put the element on the final outcome. I like the mood of the photograph, It looks a bit creepy and horror. After I have watched this series of photograph, I think I can use monochrome as the project needs us to tuned it into black and white. I want to do some experiment of laser pointer and the photography. For example, the contrast of the photograph, the composition of photos. 

Mehmet Ozgur

When we burn the opium , smoke would be produced. So I want to find some artist who did the theme of smoke, therefore, I found this artist as he has used smoke to do a kind of drawing. For his work, he had used meticulously layers , maybe two or more on the top of each other to create scenes , face or landscapes. For the third and the fourth images , it has create scenes and the images has told the audience stories . As the characteristic of smoke is momentary and looks so fancy. I think it is a sad story and it is related to the concept of the addition as we know the characteristic of smoke and it is not able to catch. I like to mood of the story that the images has gave to me.

 

Alex Prager

Her ability to make viewers see the world for its busy but dressed-up glory. She does so by setting a scene, something similar to daily life but eerily unfamiliar, which makes the world looks like stopped. For the stage setting, it makes you feel like you are walking into the environment, a bus stop or a cinema crowd cast full of friends, family and the famous. For this, I like the moment being captured. With the colours, it kindly put the lonely and happy elements in it.

I have went to another exhibition- The Photographers' Gallery as I want to focus more on photography skills. So I went to this exhibition and look to some of the artist. For this, it helps me to gain more and widen my knowledge. For example, the photos composition and the style of the photos, and I have picked up two artists, Alex Prager and Tish Murtha.

After I have done some research on the color of CMYK color, I found that it is clearly, directly to show the printer colors. So I would like to put these color on face. Then, I did some make up research from website, it inspired me to put melting effect on face. I would like to do some experiment on the eyes make up or put more than one color on the eyes part. So I have found some images which are about creative make up and contain CMYK colors and I have found out that these kind of make up have inspired me to use eye palette to draw pattern and details on eyes. Therefore I have used yellow and magnet color to eye shadow part. Then, I also found this year lips trend and tried to combine together to see how its  work. I have used to the palette to draw on lips , eyebrow and eye line. I think it can helps me to emphasis the printing details, such as print marks. For the middle image have inspired me to bite something so I would produce some related plots, just like the printed sheet.

Isamaya ffrench

I have found Isamaya FFrench as my artist research as I was inspired by her make up, I think it is really creative and trendy which is rather than putting make up as normal. I want to use this method on my final. It is more like a piece of artwork on face , not the make up. I really like this kind of expression. I think I can use face as a media(face- paper). She began her career face painting at children’s parties, and refined her interest into skill, landing her collaborations with photographers such as David Sims and Mert and Marcus on shoots for Interview Magazine, Dazed Magazine and Vogue Italia, among others. I want to put the overstated make up on face and tried to used the pattern and develop it into a pattern. 

Nick Verstand

As I have been to the exhibition called ART CENTRAL 2018, I have inspired by NICK VERSTAND x INITAL laser installation. Nick is a contemporary artist exploring human behaviour and perception through spatial audiovisual compositions. For the installation, It is about laser projection and I think it is innovative and interesting and I have tried some experiment by using the laser. I think it can related to this project as we were using the laser in our project by the same method. it has inspired me to think of how to use laser to from a pattern or space. So we would like to think about the way of how it works. While we use the laser, we found that the laser pointer is too strong and it cannot create soft texture so we would try to figure out the method to make the pointer be soft and spreading-like.

Donnosch

As this project , need to turn the final outcome into monochrome colour so I have found some monochrome photographer as I have look into the poses and compostion of a series of photograph. Therefore I found Donnosch as my artist research. The contrast is strong and it contain sad emotion in it. I like the feeling that the images have provided. As the concept of our co- create project, I found that the series of photograph makes me feel that it is related to our work. Some of the images have contain trapped, escape, anxious concept in it. I want to try the similar way on my final outcome. I want to use the projection way to project our 3D installation piece and do the normal shooting . Then, we turned it into mono colour. Also, I want to lower the contrast of the photograph to make it looks weak and helpless.

Yamamoto Takato

As my project is about closer examination reveals a degree of finesse and imagination that elevates his work away from the porn ghetto into the rarified realm of Decadence. I want to talk about the dark side things. However, I want to use indirect way to present the dark side things. I like the images has involved some creepy element in it.Then there’s the curious details of severed heads, claws, sundry bones and eyeballs which decorate the otherwise florid arrangements supporting the figures.

Zhao is a artist who was good at making fine art work by using mixture of pigment and creating fantastic affect and using various materials to make unique stroke.You can see that his work keep some traditional Chinese elements, but he was not limited by the common way. He tried a lot of experiments about the color and pigment , so you can feel that these pictures look not very messy but colorful , and it also would give audience  deep impression. To me,I like the way he express his work, it is a kind of a bit messy but it makes people feel calm. His art works are amazing with the magnificent frame and the mix color.

Tish Murtha

For this image, it is related to my project it looks like a man who get drunk or take drug. Person laying on the sofa and looks lazy, chill and helpless. As my latest project is bout immorality and addiction. So I found this image and the artist which help em develop my idea. I also discovered that the color, the texture is just like vintage and 60-70s style. So I think I can use this style in order to tell a story.
