This image is my first image based on Todd McClellan I created it by making my image black and white and modifying the present as to create three different images and then I shifted and layered them together (and a bunch of post processing to get this effect but you get the jest). This builds upon this images idea of explosive rage which is enhanced by this image. I also specifically chose this image to be black and white as that is what the image would look like if it came out of that printer, black or white. The image is very busy with no clear focal point but the entirety of the image is a pleasure to look like. The image also has a soft border which enhances the image. This image is inspired by the second part of the “Things come apart” series in which the object is blown apart and I build off of this idea by tearing apart the image itself.
Here I created a video out of my first photoshoot which made the Gameboy look as if it is being assembled. The black portions between the frames I used to create suspense in the video and it makes the viewer feel as if there is something or someone assembling the Gameboy. It is a mirror of the things come apart series and looking back I should have rendered the video backwards as to fit in with the theme more. The progression in the video is very interesting and I would not be able to achieve with a single photo as nothing is hidden from the viewer. Here the later frames are not seen by the user resulting him in having to experiencing it in the way I desire as the artist. I elected to keep the image rather natural with no filters or edits to the observation as to keep the composition simple, natural, and interesting.
In this video it shows the knolling of circuitry, and how it comes together over-time. As the video progress you can the different constituents go together to form whole parts. The video means that the viewer can observe and understand my photos at once , without the long need of having to slowly browse and flicker through. The video facilitates what the images are expressing which is that things are not truly appreciated until they are taken apart and one can see what they are comprised of. I elected to create a video as to make the viewer experience what I want at my rate; not at the speed of their left click button; I made the video dwell on the begging as to again build up suspense but to also reinstate that this is what my artist does and what my work has deviated from. Finally this was deeply inspired by stop motion video which I personally find mesmerising very interesting and desired to, if even in a minuscule way, into my work.
In this series of images I used a glow edge filter and meddled with hue and saturation as to generate this interesting image which makes the concept of knolling more prominent as it focuses more on the frame and shape of all of the elements which enforces the knolling aesthetic. It also reminds me of light photography which I did a while back with the solid colour background and interesting shapes created by strong and defined lines. The white variant also looks like a sort of a technical plan with the 90 degree theme and the black lines of white theme. It also looks as if the device was not on the paper, it was in the paper and it blends the two images together.
In this group of images I collaged together like knolled objects, the objective to represent them at each stage of dismantlement, showing different constituents each with different functions. It was strenuous and meticulous to do I had to ensure everything was aligned correctly. I also had to devise the regions of which the images would be separated, I used Photoshop to do this. If I were to re-do these series in developments I would not have the white margin / border between the images, this would have made it have a more complete looking look.
