Today we were looking at David Hockney’s ‘joiners’. In these images he has taken a lot of photos then cut and pasted them together to make interesting art works.
We were then asked to create our own in pairs. I was paired with Simeon which was nice as we’ve never worked together and he is a second year so was interesting to hear how the course has changed.
We had to choose from Journey and Collaboration as a concept. We chose journey as we both had an idea to do with stairs. This is what we came up with.
I was really proud of this piece, but Ray said it still needed some work. He said that we needed more of the figure, a better sense of journey, and a clearer shot of my hand on the railing. I will get about making these changes tomorrow.
I am pleased that we made these changes at does convey a journey much better. My only issue is that we were using a different camera with different specs. The problem with this is that you can clearly see the images we have added.
Overall I am pleased with the outcome of this project and hope to do similar projects in the future. One thing I would do differently in the future would be to have a coloured background. This piece would look better with a light blue background to match my coat and the stairs.
