Inspired by George Clarke’s T.V programme (Shed of the Year, Channel 4) the Saturday Art club designed and made for wooden buildings.
It was quite a challenge to produce something in 2 hours from scratch but the students rose to the challenge. There was a frenzy of sawing and gluing, and the production of some imaginative constructions.
Today`s photography workshop session was all about new blending with old.
Using Photoshop the students were tasked with creating a digital photomontage.
They referenced the work of Hannah Hoch (dadaism) and Peter Blake (pop art) to create montages based on themes, nature, outer space etc.
Using digital tools instead of scissors and glue they created there own homage to the montage.
These are large scale Cyanotypes by Foundation Art and Design student Giulia Ausenda Stanford.
They are initial experimental pieces for part of her Final Major Project where she is exploring the human form through multi-media approaches.
A cyanotype is one of the oldest forms of photography, used in the late 18th century to record flora and fauna.
Design Pathway students on the UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design have just completed their set designs for the Royal Opera House’s Design Challenge, a live brief in which they are competing.
Asked to respond to one of four possible Director’s visions, they have developed a broad range of exciting solutions. These range from designs based on medieval Verona to dystopian futures.
Included in this selection is work from Matilda Fuller, Eleanor Bolton, Thomas Parker, Ellie Pyner and Abigail Kennedy.
