Our first project this term is called The City but isn’t simply about drawing the city it’s about understanding the city. We’ve been told to listen to the city and observe it and discover what makes a city a city.
It’s a very open project that allows us all to experiment and take the project in anyway we wish. I’ve decided to look at the city close up and show parts of the city we wouldn’t usually think about for example the city floor and the corner of a shop sign.
At the moment I’d like to create a small book or series of images that show the city that we don’t really see for example the tops of the buildings and close ups of city life. I don’t want it to be obvious and would like to make the audience think about what they are seeing before it is finally revealed.
I’ve visited Cardiff city and made a few quick sketches of my surrounding and intend of visiting again and taking a range of photos which I could potentially work from.
