Gcse exam project lessons 1 6 2014

  1. 1. GCSE Exam 2014 Lessons Order and Disorder
  2. 2. Create Hybrid Creatures Create Hybrid creature collages using a photo of yourself and an animal collage. Or alternatively create animal hybrids using two or more animals. When first encountering this body of photographs by Madrid-based advertising and industrial photographer Miguel Vallinas it’s easy to view it as a familiar “animals dressed as people” project. But as you look closer you realize it’s quite a bit more than that. Aside from the solid retouching, lighting and overall execution, Vallinas took this anthropomorphic project a bit further and imagined what the fullyrealized wardrobe of each animal might look like if it were wearing human clothes. Titled Segundas Pieles (Second Skins), the ongoing series includes some 50+ animals whose personalities seem to be perfectly amplified by their pitch-perfect attire, making the portaits just a bit more human than animal.
  3. 3. Trace/draw your Hybrid creature collage. Use Pen and ink and watercolour to finish. Alternatively create etching using Juice cartons to scratch into. Then ink up and print. Link to the Chapman brothers- Exquisite Corpse Hybrid Animals by Nicholas Di Genova
  4. 4. Begin to sculpt your animal hybrid using clay. Small scale sculptures can then be fired and glazed.
  5. 5. Homework Take a photo of a room at home and print this A4 or A3 size. Work on top of your photocopy to graffiti one side of the room. See the example here by internationally recognized graffiti artist Tilt who has just completed this interior design work for the Au Vieux Panier hotel in Marseille, France. Tilt divided the room perfectly down the middle, one half covered entirely in his trademark vibrant and bubbly graffiti and the other half left stark white. In your version make sure you think about the surfaces in the images and alter the graffiti to work at different angles!
  6. 6. Layered photo drawings Photographer Christoffer Relander created a series of photographs titled “We Are Nature” using double and triple exposures. Using 2 sheets of acetate, layer a photo of yourself with images from nature. Make a detailed tonal drawing of the double image. Alternatively create this layered effect on photoshop!
  7. 7. Clay tiles Press man-made objects into clay to create natural patterns Use keys, nails, scissors, Computer chips, wires, staples, Paper-clips, wires etc to create Natural looking shapes inspired By Haekel Ernst Haekel
  8. 8. John Stezaker homework Create a combined portrait of yourself and a friend or family member using collage techniques (see John Stezaker) These can be create using horizontal strips, or random shapes as long as they create a combined portrait
  9. 9. Aerial Landscape Lino prints Collect “google maps” (using Google Earth) of the are you live in. Make detailed line drawings from these and then trace onto Lino. Cut your lino and make a 3 colour print from these. Experiment with layering the print to create a 3d image.
  10. 10. Viewpoint collage Alternatively look at the work of Sohei Nishino and create your own landscape collage combining a combination of aerial and straight on viewpoints. You can create your own city and surrounding area. Sohei Nishino’s dioramas of Paris, Tokyo, and New York, where aerial views blend with straight up façades to create strangely disorienting but beautifully evocative city plans.
