Loved this display method at Central St.Martins, the work is suspended around the trees and it looks really striking.

Music video projection

I've posted a couple of times already about the music video for Dels' Black Salad that I've been working on with three of my classmates at Kingston. We've finished the final edit of the film and decided that it would look good as a projection, so today we trialled it out..

We also trialled having a figure in front of the projection, as we're thinking that the projection would work well as a stage backdrop..

Pick Me Up & Pizza

Today I went to Pick Me Up, the graphic arts festival at Somerset House. I thought this year was actually the best yet, the work on display is always good but I felt that this year there were more fun things to do, which created a really nice atmosphere with all the different things going on and visitors getting involved.

My favourite work on display were Damien Florebert Cuypers' illustrations, I loved his sketches from Paris Fashion week. They are really quick and simple but capture the essence of people in the street/ at the shows, and a great alternative to street style photography that we're inundated with now...

Another highlight for me was the Face Stamping "ink-teractive illustration experience" by Human After All, which involved you mix and matching eyes, noses and mouths to create unique faces. Really simple but fun idea, I could have spent aaages there it was great. 

Here are my Face Stamp creations!.. 

After Pick Me Up we went to Franco Manca in Brixton for some amazing proper pizza, my photo doesn't really do it justice you have to go and eat it.

So Dior

The design of this exhibition at Harrods is amazing! I was expecting a small collection of dresses but the temporary exhibition occupys a large section of the fourth floor and takes you through the full history of the French fashion house across a number of different rooms. There are numerous projections throughout the exhibition that enhance the really luxurious atmosphere that has been created. There are also interactive pieces such as the giant projected book that you can turn the pages of by swiping your hand across it. The exhibition also plays with scale, the giant Lady Dior bag that a film is projected onto makes a striking screen, and the huge chair & telephone box are playful as well as being iconic to the brand. 

Finally some Vitamin D

The sunniest weekend in aaaaages
Richmond Park was looking lovely yesterday..

Last term at uni I worked in a group of 4 on a project to create a music video for Dels' Black Salad. We ended up making a film that was full of abstract visual patterns, mostly made from giant spirographs. Last week we booked out a rostrum camera to document our spirograph tests that provided the foundations for our video...

Tiger Time Unmattering

Pae White's Installation piece: Too Much Night, Again is currently on display at the South London Gallery. It's based around the artist's insomnia and apparently took a team of eight technicians ten days to construct.
You just have to go and see it walk around in it, it's pretty amazing and it makes the large gallery seem really big and really small at the same time..

Bright lights at the Hayward Gallery

The new exhibition, Light Show, has opened at the Hayward Gallery and oh my GOODNESS its good. The installations are incredible, some of them really play with your sight & trick your mind. I'll admit I've never actually been to an exhibition at the Hayward Gallery before, but this was an amazing first visit.

Infinity mirrors

This collection of three rooms really played tricks on your eyes. When you got used to one colour, e.g. red, and walked into the next room, e.g. blue, your eyes took a while to adjust to the new coloured lighting... but after a while they did adjust and the light begins to lose its vividness. You walk back to the red room but again the colour is really strong... the cycle repeats itself endlessly and you can't help but keep walking back & forth between the rooms to make your eyes try and fight the transition.

And the food market that was on this weekend just outside the Hayward Gallery was great, it was impossible to walk past all the street-food stalls without getting hungry, so Churros it was...
