Complete pages

I have now edited my text and have added pictures to go along side the writing. This is how I've designed them and hopefully what my finished book will look like!

Filming

I have filmed a few dives for my 'fanatical' project research and updated it on the project's blog. Here's just a little example of the films.

Diving project - book

My new project is to present something that you are fanatical about. I have decided to make a book about diving, and started to use indesign. Its quite confusing trying to get everything in line, but I think it's going okay! You can follow this indivial project on www.diving-sophieslade.blogspot.com




Diving project

I have decided to record, investigate and collect data on diving, and to launch a book explaining all the different elements in diving; from how dives are recorded to what judges look out for.

Paterest

Different ways of presenting my word with it's definition. My idea is to create a poster explaining it's meaning.

Paterest

I have now specialised in Graphic Design, and we have been experimenting with 'drawing text'. We came down to making up a word with a few letters of our text left over, and had to make up a new word and present it in different ways. My word is Paterest.

Multiples - "100 pegs"

A new project with Camberwell is 'multiples'. I've decided to buy 100 pegs, and create as many different sculptures as possible with them. My final piece will be presented as a book, hopefully by using 'lulu.com' to professionally make my book!



Mapping

Another idea for our mapping project was collecting information of how people held their pencils whilst drawing. I recorded the outline of everyone's hand shape when holding a pencil, and presented it as a mapped pattern.

Experimenting with pastels

With camberwell we visited Horniman's museum (which is just around the corner from me so that was lucky!) and looked at a certain gallery that we found most interesting. I've always loved drawing instruments and for my main piece experimented with chalk pastles...

Sketching

Trying out different styles of art again for the 'Museum of Me' project..

Aquarius in the making

Using stumble again I came across this website (http://www.behance.net/gallery/Signs-of-the-Zodiac/545396) with all the zodiac signs. I've decided to attempt my star sign in my 'Museum of Me', in which the brief says "your sketchbook is a laboratory and not a place for ‘finished’ art." So this is the piece so far; its taken a very long time so I think I'll leave this piece unfinished.. for now.




Museum of Me

This project is one I am doing despite the course at Camberwell. We were all given sketch books to do whatever we wanted in it for a few months, and I've started with a piece influenced by Rob Ryan..

Sidewalk chalk guy

My boyfriend recently installed 'Stumble' for me, a button at the top of your internet browser that shuffles and shows you random internet sites or youtube videos. The first site that came up was http://gprime.net/images/sidewalkchalkguy/, and I actually found it amazing! I strongly recommend installing stumble as you come across very interesting sites!

Saatchi Gallery

We had an opportunity to go view a new exhibition at the Saatchi gallery in Slone Square. I really enjoyed this gallery as there was a large range of art work and artists. The photos below are a few of my favourites, by several artists including Alastair Mackinven and Hurvin Anderson.









Hannah Barry

Our first gallery to visit was Hannah Barry's collection in Peckham. It's an open roofed exhibition on top of an old car park. The sculptures were modern art and quite interesting to view.

Camberwell Festival

Just began Camberwell last week, our first brief was to form a band and construct instruments out of scrap material. Our group decided to be a little different and created music using balloons. Each balloon was filled with different objects ranging from nuts to batteries and beads to rice! These made interesting sound as they ricocheted off other balloons and onto the floor.
