Don't Forket about the Food
24.09 Message Vacuum, Language & Interaction
This 4D video was made using a smartphone and a fork in the environment of the Archway campus and it was edited using iMovie. During the production process, I replaced items on the floor with a stainless steel fork to symbolise the role that food plays in our daily lives and how we are constantly asking ourselves questions about food, sometimes without even consciously realising.
17.09, Your Possessions, Surface & Meaning
This print was made using a range of mark-making materials like liquid chalk pens, brush pens, colouring, elastic bands and acetate sheets as part of the production process. After doing a series of observational drawings of my group's possessions, I created a mark-making menu of a variety of mark-making techniques that I thought were interesting because they included a range of line qualities that are thick, vary in clarity and colour as well as show organic textures. My group and I arranged our individual prints on the light projector and traced over the projected print onto a large brown piece of paper which is symbolic of all of the memories that we associated with personal memories.

Pls Keep Out
03.10, Your Surrounding, Body & Function
By experimenting with basic shapes from observational drawings of my surroundings, I chose three shapes and scaled them onto A1 paper, then cut them out. I then connected these shapes using masking tape and joined as many edges of the shapes together to make a 3D structure. I experimented with the structure on the body to see where it naturally would fit. I found that it has viewing holes and panels whee structure someone could look out of if the structure were to be placed on the head. 'Pls Keep Out' is meant to provide privacy for the use from the outside world while the organic cutouts only allow partial view of the outside world, of which the user can choose which parts they see depending on the adjustment of the 'helmet'. I edited the original work digitally using Adobe Illustrator and experimented with furthering this workshop exercise by highlighting the shapes created in this structure by tracing them.

26.09, Say it Loud, Language & Interaction
This production process included having an anonymous text conversation with someone else in the class to discover each other's fears. My chosen phrase was 'the world was gna end in like 2012' as I felt like it summarised the conversation we had about the power of the universe, our fate and the way that society influences our lives through social media which often instil fear. I chose to use a black text bubble with punched out holes to create the allusion of space while alluding to the ambiguity and sheer influence that social can have.

Oumbrella for my Bike
23.09, Build It, Language & Interaction
This group project was made using bamboo rods, paper, masking tape, zip ties, string and a light bulb. We started this project by making a basic structure that needed to be sturdy using the materials we had access to. We developed this basic form and adapted it into a structure that has a purpose, therefore we decided that our structure will serve as an umbrella for bike riders that they can easily attach. We used tape, paper and string to create panels the would protect the user from the weather elements while allowing light to enter and allowing them to see out of the structure.

The Juggling O's
16.09, Lost Letters Stop Motion Animation, Surface & Meaning
This stop motion animation was made using a screen print as the background and black and white cardboard paper to create the components that appear to be moving. First, a stencil was made using paper where I would make use of positive and negative space to determine the colour that would be screen printed onto the page. The intended location of this work is to be digital given its format. The intended audience might include those with a playful and joy-seeking character because of juggling's association with circus acts and the child-like joy they bring.
