Have been having fun working on the Sculpture and Lens based modules. We have to design a sculpture for a plinth near college. When I researched I found there was only one female form in the whole town, the rest were men or boats plus one Madonna who in this context doesn't count.......
I knocked up the plaster and clay models of a woman and her whining g'child trying to get the shopping done.
Then I threw caution out of the window and took my inspiration from the nearby Coprolite St. [fossilised dinosaur dung] and made this giant turd. Tutor liked it more.
We have had a couple of sessions on F numbers and shutter speeds with the aim of producing photos that are blurry or otherwise usually rejectable. I used my own camera, which the tutor couldn't sort out either, so the results were mixed. The Performance Arts students were very patient and good tempered.
This was someone skipping with a rope of green Xmas lights, a huge success? Next week we are to have a go at photo shop, so my troubles have only just begun.
