To conclude the final year on FdA we were issued with a final major project that would revolve around a brief set by LCC industry partners. I chose to work on the project ‘Something from Nothing’ which was issued by the collective Nous Vous.
The aim of the project was to explore methods of generating content through collaboration and image making. A curated collection of outcomes would then be used to formulate a publication.
As a group we took part in a series of workshops which aided us to generate content quite quickly. Having the constraint that work generated should only come from what we had collectively produced, we were able to use each others visuals and text as source material.
I decided to base my publication around a section of a written piece created by a member of the group while the visuals were created by abstracting shapes from an un related illustration by another group member. From there a visual narrative was created through the use of shape and pattern portrayed in a series of ink drawings and paintings.
For my publication outcome I went for the newspaper format and used Newspaper Club to print the copies of the finished publication. The main reason I went for this format was to get away from my usual way of working, which is typically a lot smaller, but also to compliment the bold imagery.
