I’ve been working on a project called ‘Present’. I thought about the word a lot and all it’s different meanings. At first you think of a gift or the present time but there is also a presence or something that is present, and this is the meaning I am looking at. I began by taking photos of peoples chairs as they had left them thinking about the presence of a person. I collected my favourite nine images to display together. These are the images:
I then studied the chairs through wire drawings and pen drawings. While I was doing this I began to take a photo every morning of my bed just as I had left it. I did this for a week and the result was quite interesting. I then studied these images too in the same sort of way, making wire drawings and painting with cream on card.
I am really starting to enjoy this project as I am getting more and more ideas I just can’t wait till I finish it!
