- Visual Salience Workshop – I learnt a new way how to edit my images by making the creative decision to flip the image upside down so you focus on editing the colours and composition of the image, rather than only looking at one piece of the image, you take more notice upside down when editing.
- All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace – This TV series was recommened to me to watch as it talks about ecologism in a technical world (machines and nature).
- Adam Curtis argues that computers have failed to liberate humanity, and instead have “distorted and simplified our view of the world around us.”
3. ‘Tramp’ – Wang Qingsong
Created in 2004 described a couple, homeless and living on the street. They seem to be full of aspirations for a wonderful future. Loitering around them are many redundant things, such as coins, discarded food and garbage. These sensitive portrait stories are my way of demonstrating the horrible life of the poor who wander on the street.
After seeing this image by Qingsong, I started considering how I will capture a utopian, desolate, futuristic and wasteland world. For the futuristic approach I could feature capitalist brands in prop formation such as: McDonald’s, KFC, cigarette brands, Pepsie, Coke, Primark and other big brand food chains and shops. This type of approach I would take can be seen as black comedy of the global market.
