Reflection: Entering the public space

N.B. This is a draft post of a case study to be shared with my tutor for BoW. I will revise it later


The theory behind this case study is grounded in the work I undertook for A3 in a domestic space. This is a brief example of how shadowgram/formations translates to the public space and the levels of photographic tasks that are undertaken to complete a case study.

Identify and mark space

Identify and mark space

Step one is to identify a point of interest and to mark out the space of an A4 sheet of paper. This I do with a scale card and outline with chalk.

Shadowgram capture

I then capture this space in black and white ensuring there is both a reference point in the image (i.e. the floor tile line) while keeping sufficient resolution for the print. In post I double check for perspective distortion and crop the image to A4 dimensions (210x297mm) thus creating a 1:1 scale rendering.

Installation

After printing the edited file I install the print back at the place of capture (adhesive solution not yet determined). Although it is not present in this example, I believe the best form of titling the work is to handwrite the date and time of capture (something I will add to this example later).

Finally I document the finished example. I will select a certain number of viewpoints for my own publication and leave further interpretations open to the viewer as they encounter the piece.

Feedback I am most interested in is the visual impact of seeing the idea executed in the public space vs domestic (as seen in previous assignments).

And any suggestions for presentation, titling, etc. My initial thinking is that it would work well as a self-marketing tool via Instagram.
