Removal of key parts of images.
A collection of images and work i have found & produced relating to the subject of memory which inform my experiments.
Caligraphy - â€˜Do you remember when people wrote like this? No... me neither.â€™
Notes on an approach to producing an outcome. Process + Materials + Language = Outcome
Experimentation With Devices For My Concepts Famous popular books whose titles are remembered slightly wrong, ‘1986 by George Orwell’, ‘War & War by Tolstoy’, ‘Romeo & Julia by Shakespeare’ etc.
Relevant Work & Inspiration Hans-Peter Feldmann. Two girls, one clipped, Hong Kong, 2013.
A layered experimental type/illustration piece produced from my earliest memory with Sam Winston.
-Produce a diary, to draw memories from (would be recent memories). -Sit and try and remember memories which were significant to me. -How did i feel in the memory? Did I learn anything?
-Collage, photographic, from secondary sources. -Popular imagery which link strongly with certain mood/feeling i was having at the time in the memory. e.g. John Wayne equates to having a cigarette & feeling cool. (Pastiche)
Devices To Convey Loss of Memory 1) Forced digital corruption of image files. 2) Noise / grain. 3) Removal of key parts of images. 4) Burn the medium if physical. 5) Use flicked paint to disrupt the images if the medium is physical. 6) Decreased saturation. 7) Cultural Pastiche.
-Use sketches i have produced to compliment memories.
8) False embodiment of memory given to image, via sepia effects etc.
9) Old typefaces.
-Process book, Zine, Poster showing these certain memories. e.g. Zine would be for a more niche demographic (memories which are private). Poster appropriate for sharing lots of information (memories which are shared and not private).
10) Computer errors.
Relevant Work & Inspiration 8. Famous popular books whose titles are remembered slightly wrong, ‘1986 by George Orwell’, ‘War & War by Tolstoy’, ‘Romeo & Julia by Shakespeare’ etc. 9. Images of peckham in 1920’s superimposed over modern images. 10. A ‘Wilson’ ball from cast away, memory of a relationship with people when you feel isolated and lonely. Other versions, oranges, apples, hats etc. 11. Digitally corrupt images of the most insignificant memories I have. Mundane memories recorded in photos to show how these memories of theinsignificant are forgotten/lost/corrupted so easily. 12. Find photographs of people i don’t know or met once then write what i think they would do on it, a short story about them, ‘i didn’t remember his name, he was a short man, in green flannel trousers, i’m sure i met him last month at that exhibition, he is ficitious and unkempt.’
There is a surrealist rhetoric within this series of images, which draws the eye across the frame.
Ideas & Concepts Eternal Amnesia 1. Caligraphy - ‘Do you remember when people wrote like this? No... me neither.’ 2. Bible pages highlighted. 10 commandments.
These appeal strongly to me on a compositional level, composition is vital to the impact of the content.
3. A Dole office book. / Calendar with nothing in it. 4. A Collage of loads and loads of people with faces made black and error written over it. 5. Hansel & grettel bread trail possibly being eaten by birds? 6. Paper folded choice game things girls made in school. Looks like a little diamond. Bad decisions written in the slots. 7. http://www.trueactivist.com/13-pictures-of-crazygoats-on-cliffs/ images of animals that have forgotten where they live/ eat e.g. a fish on the beach with, ‘I forgot’ written on it.
