Final Major Project – Project Development – 24th August 2018

The feature of my focus in my previous module (Surfaces and Strategies) was Life/Death/Rebirth, and whilst I really enjoyed this I am questioning whether it is something that I really want to continue.

Looking back over some past work I found my Sellotape image from the Informing Context module. This image features a fingerprint. This made me think about Identity.

I came across the book Northerners – Portrait of a no nonsense people by Sefton Samuels

What I noticed about this book was while there were a couple of images from the North East there is much more focus on the North West. Quite often we seem like a forgotten people not featuring a great deal in the government plans for improvement, the refusal to dual the A1 instead finding projects further south.

This made me think about a project I’ve been dwelling over for a while ” Northern Identity”

I don’t want to use portraits I want to use fingerprints over the top of North East images.

This is my image Sellotape which I link closely to identity.

I want ti overlay this type of fingerprint over the North East. Over the break between modules I want the fingerprint to be subtle but a statement. I need to think about the titles of the images – should it be the name of the place or the name of the fingerprint.
