Part 5 – Videos and photographs of my sampling and final maquette

13 July 2017


Part 5 – Videos and photographs

The purpose of this post is to present additional photographs and videos of the sampling leading up to my final prototype/maquette. They have specifically been produced to aid my tutor’s understanding of the work, which is too large and delicate to send by post.

 

Videos

The video form a series which chronicle the development of samples to the final prototype/maquette.

The first video in the series talks a little about the lead up to the work then discusses sample 9:

The second video discusses sample 10:

Video 3 deals with sample 11:

Next, video 4 presents an investigation into different materials (sample 12):

The final video presents the final prototype/maquette:

Photos

All the photos are additional to those contained in the main blog and are included to show the sample in different ambient lighting conditions and orientations.

Sample 9:

The two photos below were taken on 11 July at 19:30hrs in the garden, when the sun was low in the sky. The sample is West-facing.

Photo 1: Sample placed vertically


Photo 2: Sample placed horizontally

The photo below was also taken on 11 July at 19:30hrs in the garden. The sample is South-West-facing.

Photo 4: Sample placed vertically

The next photos was taken on 11 July at 19:30hrs in the garden, but in a shaded area (nonetheless some shadow is still visible).

Photo 5: Sample placed vertically.

Sample 10:

The photos below were taken on 11 July at 19:30hrs in the garden, when the sun was low in the sky. The sample is West-facing.

Photo 1: Sample placed horizontally.

Photo 2: Sample place horizontally (detail)
 
Photo 3: Sample place horizontally (detail)
 
Photo 4: Sample place horizontally, viewed from above.
 

Sample 11:

The two photos were taken in July at midday in the garden, with two different foliage backdrops:

Sample 12:

The photos below were taken on 11 July at 19:30hrs in the garden, when the sun was low in the sky. The sample is West-facing.

Photo 1: Sample viewed obliquely at eye level.

Photo 2: Sample viewed obliquely from above. The effect captured by the camera is similar to artificial lighting at night.

Photo 3: Viewed obliquely and above from the right.

Final prototype/maquette:

The first three photos were taken in July at midday in the garden.

Photo 1: Looking short end on

Photo 2: Looking straight at the long side

Photo 3: Looking from above

The photos below were taken on 11 July at 19:30hrs in the garden, when the sun was low in the sky. The sample is West-facing.

Photo 4: Looking obliquely

Photo 5: Shadow detail

Photo 6: Looking from above. Tone and shadow

    Oh Nicola this is a stunning development. I loved all that samples and I am awe of how you have taken the work of the other artist and made this you own. Well done. I wish you the best of luck with assessment. The videos are a good solution for assessment.!

      Thank you so much Inger. You don’t how much it means to have some encouraging feedback after all the work I’ve put into this assignment! The videos were suggested by my tutor. I was suprised at just how much they added to the understanding of the pieces. In video 3, for example, I found myself touching and scrunching the sample. Before, I hadn’t realised just how tactile it was and it gave me the idea of an installation could be used interactively as it is a bit like walking on Autumn leaves!
