Uni Blog 2018

Hello, so this is a little glimpse into the thoughts and things around my final major project from university (over a year ago). The aim of the blog was explore the topic of atmosphere and how objects within the home can influence it. Feels like a million years ago I started this but anyway, hope you enjoy 

Abstraction

Following the previous photoshop experiment, i began to explore the idea of abstraction, in which the weight and colour of an object would be used to produce a unique pattern.

After discovering a Data collection project called ‘Helia’ (shown above) which is based on the central idea to unify data as well as creative work and to establish a universal language. An outcome of this is an abstracted form of data which represents the weather conditions outside.

It was this ‘Helia’ Project which influenced the aesthetic for the following illustrations which looked to abstract the raw properties of people possession.
