Extension Studies

For my extension studies i’m taking the theme of Journey as a form of time. So taking some images that I had already taken, I want to create a series of photos, within a photo within a photo. Showing time through weather change, different times of the day etc. These are a few which I’ve taken today and a starting point to see if this idea will work.

Letters From Brighton

Catherine and Philippe who are currently in Minnesota set up an exhibition of letters of what Brighton means to us. These are some pictures including my own work :)

£5 5 books

My project was based on looking into the amount of letters used in a book. I decided to count all the letters from my favourite childhood book Mrs Tiggy Winkle by Beatrix Potter. With this research I decided to create a series of books showing different ways of presenting this information. One book shows all the letters used and the amount of each in alphabetical order, one shows the same information but includes the illustrations to see whether the reader would read the book differently, one shows the same information based on each individual page and one shows the amount and the letters used on each page in order of most used. I designed the books with the same layout as the original book in order for it to create a narrative.

Sequences 2

I want to get back into letterpress, we have the equipment but havn't been making the most of it. My film I made isn't strong enough on its own and therefore decided to also do some print based work too. This idea is similar to my film just different execution. I took the speech and decided to remove all the letters in the quote not used in "Where one burns books, one will, in the end, burn people" so that the message is unclear. While I was researching into Heinrich Heines speech it was originally written in German and translated in different variations, conveying the same message but slightly different. In someways the message was "lost in translation" which is the idea that I want to convey in this idea. It also shows a sequence of letters placed in a certain way. It was good fun and really good at getting back to letterpress, it took longer then I thought but was worth it.
