Assessment 2: FINAL PIECE
After undertaking a process of divergent thinking, I have converged my concept of exploring everyday life into a final piece - a quote created by myself.
I have written this quote because it is an all encompassing form of documentation that reflects the process I have followed for this assessment.
Assessment 2: Piece 10
For my second last piece I have created an acronym from the words ‘Everyday Life’ as this is what my concept for this task has revolved around.
Assessment 2: Piece 9
Their are thousands of brands that I’m familiar with. I see them everyday in advertising and even the stores themselves. This piece was inspired by those brand names and logo designs we know so well, such as the Coke can.
For this piece I wanted to take a famous logo/brand that we see almost everyday and alter it in some way, in order to completely change our perception of it. So I decided to focus on changing the colour of the Coke can because that is it’s most recognisable features.
This piece has a really pop-art vibe to it which I really like as well.
Assessment 2: Piece 8
I use water everyday for a multitude of purposes. I use it to bathe, drink, cook, brush my teeth, clean and flush the toilet. Water is an essential everyday item that I had to document for this assessment.
The above image is a photo montage of a water droplet falling from the tap in my kitchen. I took it through the burst mode function on my camera and it turned out quite well.
The theme of this piece is basically how such a simple molecule (water) can serve such a range of life sustaining purposes that we all engage in everyday.
Please ignore my face in the reflection haha
Assessment 2: Piece 7
Did you know most people spend more time on the internet per day then they sleep? Going on the internet is definitely an everyday activity for me, and I’ve decided to document how you can get ‘lost’ in the internet with this piece.
With one of my previous pieces I explored a specific route, whereas this piece focuses on a lack of direction.
The main theme within this image is Procrastination, and whether I’m on Facebook, Youtube or Tumblr, there are an endless array of links which allow me to explore different paths and avenues.
The arrows represent the different tangents I go on when surfing the Internet, and the infinite amount of sites and pages I have access to.
Assessment 2: Piece 6
One thing everyone does everyday is take breaths. We do it subconsciously and it’s vital for our survival. I was curious to find out how many breaths I take in an entire day.
For this piece I recorded how many breaths I took in one minute (16) then multiplied that by 60 to get the hourly number (960) and finally multiplied that by 24 to get the daily figure of 23,040 breaths.
Now thats a large number, but in an entire year i would breath roughly 8,409,600 times!
The backdrop of this piece was an image of the sky that I took, as it’s symbolic of air/breathing.
Assessment 2: Piece 5
I decided to research and document the route I take to my work every week and the above image is the pure directions I drive in order to get there.
This research and piece allowed me to find out that:
Assessment 2: Piece 4
Ever wondered how much you eat in one day? I was really curious as to how much/what I eat on an average day and I decided to take a photo of everything I ate in one day as seen through the above GIF.
I learnt a few things through this experiment:
Assessment 2: Piece 3
After reversing video clips of everyday tasks, I thought I could try it with sounds. Like the videos, the sounds are completely different once reversed and some of them are almost unrecognisable. I was pleasantly surprised with how piece turned out because it distorts these everyday sounds we ignore.
Try and guess the sounds!
The sounds I recorded were:
