Critique: 8 Images

Prior to Christmas I was already considering producing some form of installation as a final realisation for the narrative unit. However, I may have got slightly carried away with this, creating a den in our utility room was great fun but perhaps not the most informative of research! After referring back to the text I selected four key moments where reality and imagination intertwine. I also found that the darker reality within the narrative could be best represented through four objects associated with the mother figure (who is coming to terms with being diagnosed with cancer). I took various photographs of a family friend and objects in order to gain reference material and used a combination of collage, drawn elements, watercolour and Photoshop in order to create these images.

The following 8 images formed the basis of a critique we had yesterday, despite being very nervous it seemed to go pretty well! General opinion was that some form of installation would be the most successful realisation. I want conceptual elements to play a part, but also still want it to remain 'illustrative', perhaps creating an almost quilt-like surface of images which can in turn be used to create some form of ‘den’. More research is definitely necessary...

Also here's the website for 'The Shed', the film this all came around as a result of. It's a really creative and interesting project so have a looksie...
