Final Major Project: 1:1 Summary Notes – 24th April 2018

Notes from my recent 1:1 with Wendy McMurdo – recorded here for reference and action.


We discussed my progress to date and considered images from recent shoots.


Key points for consideration:-


Action points:-

  • Consider installation constraints and plan around this


Consider other methods of installing work and decide which will work for the project:-

  • zine

  • gallery

  • projection

  • website


Private view:-

  • generate the audience

  • ask venue to link to it and promote it

  • plan artist’s talk – max 20 mins – concise – introduction to main themes of exhibition – transcribe it for CRJ and FMP document

  • Staff – handouts / drinks

  • Capture email addresses so people can hear more about future exhibitions

  • Installations shots – need good ones for FMP document

  • Refinement of work

  • How long to read an image? 5.5 seconds per image

  • Strength in portraiture

  • Installation flow / scale – currently too linear

  • Consider mapping and male gaze

  • 1-page max

  • articulate work

  • can influence the reading of the work

  • not dense or academic

  • powerful

  • articulate workPress release:-

  • can influence reading of work

  • Put different images onto social media – look at Facebook image software – facial recognition

  • The more and more I do the more interesting and deeper the project gets


Further research:-

  • Trevor Paglen – machine / digital mapping

  • Jamie Hawksworth – ribbon

  • Sam Irvin – scratched out faces / quotes
