AS Photography Earth Air, Fire and Water

  1. 1. AS Photography Exam 2014 Earth, Air, Fire & Water
  2. 2. EARTH
  3. 3. Babu Eshwar Prasad, ‘The skin of the Earth’. The work looks at the formal qualities of soil, its textures, and the kind of sedimentation that occurs over time, as well as speaking of it metaphorically as the soil 'bearing witness'. Prasad’s preoccupation with soil can be linked to his concern with the impact of industrialisation and related social, economic, ecological and ethical dilemmas they pose anthropologically. India’s postindependence development strategies are leaving tell-tale signs on the soil and this is the theme of Fast Forward to Zero, a short film that the artist made in 2011.
  4. 4. Ana Mendieta, Silueta, 1976 The silueta (silhouette) was a series of artwoks made by Ana Mendieta in which she left an ‘imprint’ of her body in snow, mud, sand, grass etc. These were transient ephemeral artworks, at their creation a performance piece, then recorded photographically. Artist Richard Long is known for his Land-Art, often photographing tracks made by repeated use, or arranging natural materials within the landscape and then photographing them.
  5. 5. Art & Ecology Christine Odlund: Atlantis The effects of global warming has led man to seek refuge under water. The earth is covered in mould and fungi due to global warming. Extreme weather has forced man to take refuge under the sea surface. Wupong Clan: It’s like this A post-everything zone. The quintessence of white puddles in wasteland and and the mystical meaning of a rat-man. it’s like this. takes on the industrial wasteland, replacing the lost nature with artificial beautification. Manu Luksch: Make it snow… Simon Woolham: 3 films A short meditation on winter landscapes, snow cannons, and holism. A (very) short meditation on the manipulation of winter landscapes for tourism that points to their fragility and recalls the need for a holistic perspective. The three short animations, Severed, a landscape in peril, coughing up its own blood, The Deracinater, a tree trying to communicate and uproot itself and The Isle, a whole landscape under threat, heighten the human impact and presence on our landscape, both social or ecological.

  17. 17. Sophie Calle ‘Voir La Mer’ (‘To see the Sea’) Sophie Calle met people in Turkey who, despite living close to the coast, had never seen the sea. These films show the first time they look at the ocean. They were asked to turn around and face the camera when they were ready. Emotions range from elation to bitter tears. Could you record memories regarding the sea and accompany these with images that evoke the feeling your subject had at the time? Could you accompany the images and stories with sound?

  20. 20. Adam Rodgers Capturing multicoloured cascades of digital compression, Data Waterfall is a sublime, sound-reactive film. “Data Waterfall represents an element of nature by using digital methods,” explains Rodgers. Pery Burge is an artist who photographs ink, glass and natural objects with a macro lens.
  21. 21. Catherine Yass, ‘Sparkly White Lines’ “I floated this image in the canal for a week. It's a photograph of the place where I floated it. The water peeled away the layers of emulsion within the transparency to reveal the different colours embedded in the film.” Stephen Gill “I filled a bucket with water from the pond, and dipped my underwater camera into this pond water prior to making portraits of the Dudelange residents. Later on I also dipped the prints into the pond itself, so microscopic life was also transferred onto the surface of the paper.”

  24. 24. Ryan Hopkinson (again) Five pages for the latest issue of USED magazine incorporating an 8ft thermo-chromic tree made from hundreds of specially treated leaves that Lauren had made for an installation. We shot the tree changing colour as the fire crept up the installation and through its demise as it combusted into flames.
  25. 25. Sarah Pickering took pictures of “burn units,” setdressed interiors set on fire to educate forensic teams and crime scene investigators. The blazes in these photographs provoke an immediate adrenaline response. More interesting, however, is the carefully orchestrated clutter of the imaginary households. Jiang Zhi
  26. 26. Lucas Simoes “To burn pictures, a way of fisically erase a memory by burning it, so with time, the image that is burnt will disappear from your memory.”
  27. 27. Leanne Eisen Manitoba, Up in Flames Manitoba, Up in Flames II “In the series “Scan”, I am exploiting the limitations of my scanner in order to introduce intentional glitches into the process. Much like darkroom techniques like burning and dodging, or the placement of objects directly onto the photographic paper's surface to create photograms, each exposure represents a choreographed movement, a moment in time captured on a two-dimensional surface.”
