For my uni course’s second year exhibition, I edited my film Ever Decreasing Circles so that it runs on a continual loop!
To promote the “Subtext” part of the exhibition, I produced these three posters featuring quotes relating to the theme and visual elements taken from different pieces of work. The circles in the first poster represent my film.
Below are a ton of photos I took last week on a university trip to Berlin! Parts of the city felt quite dated and a bit “1999” to me, but there’s lots of interesting sculptures, architecture and pieces of design! While on my travels, I mainly focused on bold colours and distinctive lettering.
All of these were taken with my Canon 600D (kit lens), which I bought recently for the trip. Taking it round Berlin was a very good way to run it in!
There were two things in particular that intrigued me.
I stumbled across one of Keith Haring’s sculptures, “Boxers”, by accident whilst visiting the Sony Center. I did a lot of research into his cartoon figures for my British Art Show project, so it was great to see one in the flesh!
Near to the cathedral is the red brick Bauakademie (the English Building Academy). It was damaged during World War II, partially restored, but later demolished. Since 1995, there have been plans to rebuild it in its entirety. In 2001, students built a temporary scaffolding structure, based on the remaining corner of the building, to give the impression of the full building, and it’s still standing. It’s pretty bizarre!
