During experimenting with different forms of printing, initially letterpress and wood block, I began to experiment by introducing new elements into my printing process, and the Lego letterpress was born
As part of my Honours project we had to create work for external markers to come in and have a feel for what we were doing, and to allow people around our building to have a small preview of our ideas of what our degree show will showcase.
My main self initiated brief is:
“My honours project will be focussing on the theme of ‘Is Sameness Overrated?’, inspired by past work of Stefan Saigmeister.
Through exploring this theme I will look at different ideas which work within this theme. Through research and development, I will look at different mediums and formats which would allow me to portray my findings and my final work.
I will be looking at work which is both ‘same’ as well as ‘different’, and looking into design history and what has come before, and what may come in the future.
I will also look at different artists who have also identified this theme, and their work they have produced.”
So I created this:
The idea behind the peice was to mix the Sameness, grid structure, 1m x 1m scale, and push pins, with difference, rough textured board and imperfect push pins.
It also allowed me to push myself away from the sameness of approach that I would normally do, of something printed
Been working on a as yet untitled typeface which I’m hoping to use in some up and coming screen prints. I think I’ve settled on this for the lower case & ligatures, but I’m always interested in feedback if anyone has any?
Colours is definitely something that stands out in peoples photography. While I love black & white photography, I’m trying to push my own skills with editing, trying something which I don’t normally do.
Tried something new colouring wise, what are your thoughts?
More re edits from older shoots. It seems a lot of my older work seems very suited to B&W, that or I’ve started to prefer the look or feel of B&W shots. A friend commented that the first shot had a ‘Bailey’ feel to it… which to me is pretty high praise considering he’s one of my all time favourites.
