New assignment

Thursday September the 18 th

In our main technical studio session today with Dave Gregory we were given another assignment . We have to pick 6 words from an available 9 of which I will write a short dictionary definition below to get me started

Modernity

The quality or condition of being modern .

Nostalgia

A sentimental longing or wistful affection for a period in the past .

Elegance

The quality of being graceful and stylish in appearance or manner .

Opulance

Great wealth or luxuriousness .

Austerity

Plainness and simplicity in appearance .

Joy

A feeling of great pleasure and happiness .

Reflection

1 . An image seen in a mirror or shiny surface .

2 . A thing bringing discredit to someone or something .

it was a sad reflection on society that because of his affliction he was made an outcast .

 Culture

The arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively . The ideas, customs, and social behaviour of a particular people or society

 Gender

The state of being male or female (typically used with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones) .

 

  Then make 6 separate images Based on each of the words we picked . We need to actively research and think deeply into each words meaning to discover original creative ways of expressing them in our images .

  Dave was talking to us about ways of seeing things and expressing them . He used a pen as a talking point around this and explained objective and interpretive meanings in an image eg the objective pen is just about its form as an object ( click , oh look a pic of a pen ha ) but the interpretive ( Look and think what the object means ) pen is how we explain what the pen is and what it has done for us or can do . For example , the pen has been the most important invented tool the human race has known because it enables us to put our thoughts on paper and communicate with one another .

  Then he went on to explain some of the meanings of a few of the words eg opulence means lavish  excessively dressed people draped in jewellery with a lavish lifestyle and we looked up the dictionary definition of culture which was “ the arts and other manifestations of collective human achievement  “ .
