"Era" is the artist book I made and presented at our fine art photography book show at the CCA in Glasgow. The Glasgow School of Art library awarded it a "gold prize" and is now going to be featured in the library’s Artist Book Collection.
Some of my glitch gifs work really well, and some don’t. This is an example of one that doesn’t really work. This year, I have learnt just to make and not be scared of failure. Some things just don’t work out the way you want them to, and that’s ok.
I decided to add more photographs to my photo book after my book crit. At the beginning of my book, there are 2 photographs similar to this one, featuring my brother even younger than he is in this photograph and a even smaller cut out of me. I liked the idea of having a sort of progression of time within the book; identifying a narrative. These images also function as a break from the glitched images which feature more within the book.
For the final term of 2nd year, we are making our own artist books, and this is a preview of what I’ve made. It features a body of work that I have made over the past year and a half.
I have sent it off to be printed, and hopefully in two weeks time, I will have a good quality artist book.
Another photograph of mine being reblogged onto a page I have no control over. The content on this blog was more relative to the work, unlike the first blog.
I noticed that one of my photographs was reblogged on this website, so I decided to go and have a look at the content on the blog. This is what I found. Looking further past my photograph, the content got a lot stranger and it has prompted me to make work based on what I found.
Normally, we’re in control of how/where/when our work is displayed. Reblogging takes that control away, in a sense, when it comes to displaying work online via tumblr.
