Pink Haze

So how amazing is this shoot by Eleanor Hardwick for Bullett. the answer is very amazing considering that I only stumbled across it while I was researching the 80s for my college decades project. I have no idea how I ended up here from what I was googleing, but somehow I did and I’m actually quite glad I did. I don’t think this is going to fit in with any of the work that I’m doing st the moment, but I’m thinking that they could be a great starting point in the future.

I’m Still Standing

It feels like an achievement that I’ve survived my first week at college. For those if you that don’t know, I’m currently studying the UAL Foundation Diploma in Art and Design course at my local college.

This past week has possibly been one of the most challenging but fun weeks that I can remember in a long time. It’s weird going in and having no idea what they’re going to throw at you, it could be anything. Mostly things that I not overly sure constitute art especially at post a level, but they are the teachers and you kind of just have to go with it, in the process creating some absolute rubbish but at the same time some real gems.

One of the more fun things that I have had to do involve still lifes and a corn on the cob that I named ‘Larry’, because that’s what every good piece of corn on the cob should be called. Sticky plastic vinal may have also been involved. I know how mentally scaring this might be sounding, (and we made it sound), but I promise that this isn’t going anywhere like that. So how did Larry go from a nice regular corn on the cob to this …

Before you ask, yes that is art. There’s a still life you can see going round it. This session was all about colour and us not being afraid to use it. As well as using unconventional materials to produce it.

The day then ended with some good old photos. The first one being that we had to wear our decorated piece of fruit or vegetable with a straight face. Easier said than done. After five attempts this is the one with the smallest smirk. For some reason the second you put me in front of a camera I seem to have a massive smirk permanently etched on my face.

We also had to have a photo taken of us eating a piece of fruit or vegetable. The only piece that was left when I got round to taking mine that I considered to be remotely safe to put anywhere near my mouth was half a grapefruit. Not nice. This was a grapefruit without any sugar that had spent the best part of the day cut in half out in the open. I caught some of it on my tooth and it was vile.

I apologise for the quality of some of the photos in this post, my camera died on me and they were taken on my phone.
