Final Major Project – 1:2:1 Tutorial with Wendy McMurdo – 12th February 2019

Summary:

I need to consider a voice over and whether I feel his would be successful if I brought it into my work.

Have a look as some of the CRJ’s from North Utshire.

Confirmation that the black and white images are the ones to go with.

What I need to do:

Research Bobby Baker

Sophie Calle – Take Care of Yourself and The First Time – on websire FlashArt online

Links to my website – These can be linked into the FMP document.

CRoP – Research people who use the walk particularly in reference to photography. Look at the stigmatisation of mental health

Write 300 words of what my project is about and keep reviewing this.

  • Gem Southern
  • Jesse Alexander – Place and Perspective
  • Crystal le Bas
  • Nan Golding
  • Sophie Calle

Final Major Project – 1:2:1 Tutorial with Wendy McMurdo – 29th January 2019

Summary:

  • Discussed the gallery meeting that I had yesterday and made a provisional booking for.
  • We discussed that a pop up event might be enough – or just the launch event.
  • Instead of doing a live talk – I could have one that is recorded.
  • Some of my close up work is not as strong as the seascapes however once I explained why these images are important I have chosen to re shoot them.
  • I need to have a think about how explicitly I want to talk about my personal issues.
  • My work needs to have beginning and ends/ ebbs and flows.

What I need to do with my work:

  • Get in touch with Digital Lab
  • Think about the type of presentation that I would like to use. My work is almost diaristic I should perhaps present it in this way.
  • Would my work be successful in a website blog type of presentation.
  • I should tell my story

Research to follow up:

  • Pre Raphaelite Art – Melancholic
  • Hamish Boulton, Simon Roberts

Final Major Project – 1:2:1 Tutorial with Wendy McMurdo – 22nd January 2019

Summary:

I presented my draft water presentation

Although I have decided not to pursue my Alzheimer’s project it is felt that I should still clearly document it in my CRJ.

What I need to do with my Work:

Contextualisation:

  • How people see water in lots of different ways
  • bodies of water metaphor
  • I need to consider images and text
  • Use Creativity – What do I want to say – Titles
  • Exploration of my own issues is the creativity to explore aspects of the self.
  • Think about the space to just be through photography.
  • For the Falmouth F2F event, get some good prints to show and curate with Wendy

Research to Follow up:

  • Watch Simon Roberts video – vantage points
  • The Pond Moonlight – Edward Steichen
  • Andreas Gursky – River Rhine
  • Jo Spence – Photo-therapy Work – Using Self portraiture
  • Susan Derges – River Taw
  • Hiroshi Sugimoto – Seascapes
  • Roni Horn – Another Water ( Look at the Tate, This project is loaded with important information for me) Water, Bridges, Suicide.
  • Ian McEwan and Robert McFarlane – Writing about water, landscapes and walking
  • Look at the CRJ of previous students to fully understand the presentation of the final outcome
  • Research Workshops looking at collaborative practice.

Final Major Project – 1:2:1 Tutorial with Wendy McMurdo – 27th November 2018

Summary

After the cancellation of my exhibition space – I shouldn’t panic I still have time!

I shared the images I had taken as part of the task set to me.

We discussed my reluctance over sharing my images of the family archive.

What I need to do with my work:

If I want to continue with Alzheimer’s:

  • I could ask if the Editorial Team could do a piece
  • I already have links to the Events Team
  • This will help me with my links to collaboration.

If I decide to go with a broader mental health issues:

  • I could hold a workshop
  • If I decide to hold a workshop I must have images/documentation to show the experience
  • Development of the mindfulness/contemplative photography skills I have been practising in my personal photography work.

A workshop feels like a really achievable option. It will achieve the SMART objectives i can measure the success against.

Research to follow up:

Whitechapel Gallery – Gillian Wearing – the work she did on her Grandmother

Dafnor Talmor – How she carries out workshops – Perhaps a case study here.

Natasha Carruna – Workshop examples

Jo Spence – Phototherapy

Final Major Project – 1:2:1 Tutorial with Wendy McMurdo – 13th November 2018

Summary:

I need to get up to date.

With my Alzheimer’s work I should have the goal of aiming at the Bob & Diane Fund Competition next year. (I’ve just missed the deadline for this year)

Feedback for the new images that I have produced:

  • The less manipulation the better
  • The Silhouette is just an illustration
    • Recreating my memories with the silhouette within it could be too much of a challenge.
  • I should be using the archive that I already have – this being the family album.

What I need to do with my work – 

For the next tutorial – 

  • Photograph in-Situ 12 rephotographs
  • Try new techniques either holding the image or inserting via photoshop.
  • They need to be high quality
  • Create a PDF from here.
