This week I have been developing my installation ideas. Firstly i wanted to have a practice with my first idea, having the book solo under a spotlight. With the light i had available light i had i managed to experiment with warm and cool lighting, the brightness and hight. Ive come to this conclusion that prefer a dimmer warm light from a higher point. The book needs something to display it easier on with a weight maybe to keep it open. If i was to go with thhis idea i need a darker room, the light coming through in other places is ruining the effect, maybe i should look into other locations.
Alternatively my busy environment i have taken photographs of the project room and began sketching out a plan. This would be a piece in itself where i make a montage to who i am as a person using objects from my home and some bigger drawings of key memories.
Developing on the group project .
For the group project, i explored the theme “abstraction of language” in which my main focus was dyslexia. You can see my PowerPoint below. Furthermore, I want to see this as a development on my own project, I’m telling stories through imagery and my memory instead of words, I also will experiment more with reflecting my identity in my work.
I have continued adding to my memory book, i can tell i have been struggling more with my memory this week possibly due to stress and feeling very busy recently.
