Roughly two weeks ago, famous designer Anthony Burrill set our university course to produce some protest graphics.
The protest coming under three catergories: Love, Hate and Change. We spent the first day of the brief post-it noting things that annoy us or things we which to celebrate.
My best post-it, was the annoyance of someone telling you to do something one way and then another person coming along and telling you another way, it really bothers me. So I reduced it down to ‘This way, that way, my way’ and produced a triangular board to represent this.
After producing the board, we had to hit the streets and get photos of us protesting. I wanted a front and back view of myself protesting. As it shows ‘this way and that way’ are behind me and I’ll go ‘my way’ forward. We then had a crit with Burrill and he pointed out that I had my camera bag and camera on (which I should have removed, oops). He also helped develop an idea of dressing in threee different ways to establish how my style and personality are my own. I intend to take photos doing this at some point,the next step is develop our phrases into stencils for silk-printing.
So I’ll see you then x
