On Monday I spent my day teaching a group of teenagers about photography at the National Centre for Craft and Design as part of a summer series of workshops with artists and designers.
We covered artistic principles (such as composition, light, narration, etc.) as well as the technical aspects of cameras. A focus was also drawn towards mobile photography as a considerate medium of choice. Here are some of my images from the day:
The exhibition itself was inspiring for its glass work and intricate ideas. Amongst the favourites are: Luke Jerram and his homeless person out of glass; Jeffrey Sarmiento and Erin Dickson, and their "Emotional Leak"; and Claire Morgan with a suspended flies sculpture.
...and kids' feedback:
All you need to know to write a good story is knowledge of storytelling components. The table below is an interactive table of all possible twists and tricks you might want to know.
Take the "Kick the Dog" - a plot device which makes a good character turn into a bad one at some point in the narrative, so that you start feeling less sympathy towards him.
Last week I was testing out a new app in development by Mission Room being made to capture the surrounding in 360 degrees. The panoramas then get overlaid with the content (images and documents) of your choice augmenting the views.
"The British Museum has launched a permanent interactive digital exhibit to bring its Renaissance treasures to life for visitors to its newly developed Waddesdon Bequest collection and Enlightenment galleries. A bespoke interactive digital display has been created by AllofUs to sympathetically fit with the historical features of the galleries. The display allows the visitors to learn more about the wide range of exhibits in the collection through carefully crafted animated stories." Read more.
The paradox of the public space: you PROMOTE yourself by sharing thoughts and ideas, yet you let the others STEAL from you.
At this point I'd like to refer to the words of Carl Lagerfeld, who claims he's so productive, so that it doesn't matter if one plunders from him. "I'll give you another brilliant solution."
In my first conference talk, which happened in January 2016 at the Connected Communities Heritage Network.
The research I presented was on the approaches to the user experience design using the study of the current Augmented Reality landscape as the focal point. This presentation was also about user-centred thinking, its challenges and further Research & Development opportunities within not only Augmented Reality but also the area of user experience itself.
Connected Communities is a "cross-Research Council programme led by AHRC, designed to help us understand the changing nature of communities in their historical and cultural contexts and the role of communities in sustaining and enhancing our quality of life."
Today I completed my first assignment learning Python, which evolved around filling out the gaps in the story by prompting the user to contribute.
The aim of the workshop was to implement various techniques from design practice to address issues in social care, civil engineering and finance. A prominent approach on the day was the Double Diamond process.
I has been a pleasure to be taking part and be taking images of the event. Courtesy of Vika Nightingale.
I decided to run a new feature, which would be focusing on the photography found on Instagram. The platform is filled with beautifully artistic work, and as much as Pinterest and other creative portfolio services offer a ripe selection, the skilful presentation and the hatshag routes on Instagram could be of joy.
