Welcome To Space – Part 2

To extend the final work ‘Welcome To Space’, I wanted to show how I would exhibit the piece.

The ‘Welcome To Space’ book would be made into six duplicates. Each duplicate would be mounted to the wall using acrylic supports similar to the example below:

It would be installed in two rows of three. I would have a slideshow of the images playing in a loop being projected over the mounted books.

Final Exhibition:

 

Overall, Im very happy with the final outcome of my piece. By allowing myself to not have any constraints, including have to use the medium of paper, I was able to explore a wide variety of creative outlets on what I could possibly create. In doing so, I was able to come full circle and still produce a piece of work that met the only requirement of this brief; using the medium of paper.

Also, by exploring and creating my own interpretation of space, I am able to allow others into that space which is my life. I’m able to be open with sharing part of my space and essentially, I’m allowing myself to grow as a person. At the end of the day, space is life and life is space. It’s an infinite void that we all are existing in. It’s easy to become consumed by our own voids so by letting others view your void, you’re able to widen your void and perspective and grow. Growing an infinite amount within an infinite space.

Welcome To Space – Part 1

The first part of my final piece is a book I have complied by the name of ‘Welcome To Space’.

The book consists of my favourite photographs that I have taken this year. The photographs show some of the different aspects of my life; dance, friends, travel and skating. The photographs are also all taken in different locations from around the world and within New Zealand. All of this is to show my space. The space in which I exist in is filled with the content and aesthetics of the photographs. Bright and bold, yet black and white. Action packed yet very chill.

As a person, Im what you would call “low-key”. I do not enjoy having my life shared in a way that is beyond my control, I like to keep my life to myself and do not share a lot of details of what I do in my time outside of uni. By creating this book, Im able to welcome others into my life, which is my space. Im able to give a slight insight into what it is that I do in my space and who is in my space alongside me.

The images within the book are constructed using coloured paper, printed images and masking tape.
