Today, there was 3 workshops the class took part in. The workshops were all to do with light.
The first workshop was with Shaun. We looked at many different artists who look at light and installation.
Then, I was able to have a go at playing with light to get different outcomes. I used water and a projector which created interesting outcomes.
The projector was able to show the water as water is clear, the outcomes looked like something from a science experiment.
The second workshop I did was with Chris. This workshop explored darkness and how darkness makes a person feel. We did a number of activities in the dark, drawing and writing how we felt/what we felt/ what we could see. We looked at using a candle to create a source of light, and using a millisecond flash of light to memorise what we saw. We also looked at a camera obscura which was very fascinating. Here are some of the outcomes of my work, I couldn’t see a thing so the outcomes are interesting.
The third workshop was with Sue. This time we looked at shadows and light.It was based on, ‘In Praise of Shadows’, an essay on Japanese aesthetics, by the author and novelist, Jun’ichiro Tanizaki.
