Crossing Lines: April meetup: New Academic Building Room 3.26: 6 – 8 pm: Wednesday 4th April 2012
Here is the lineup for the March meetup of Crossing Lines:
Simon Head writes: “Some of my recent work explores the idea of a conceptual interface between 3D and 2D. 3D subject and the 2D printed photograph. Photographs of structures taken from both the front and the side – these two perspectives presented as a diptych – relating directly to the conventions of mechanical drawing – photographic information in an isometric composition.”
Judith Jones subject will be derived from her current Ph.D. work: The Urban Village Concept: Using Poundbury, Dorset as a case study for research.
Alex McIlhiney writes: “Following my visit to the gHost seminars I will present some sketchy ideas of who may become the ghosts of tomorrow. This includes promising young footballers and former eastenders actresses. I will also have an update on the Canary Wharf project and my plan to take a psychic around the site to gather their ‘impressions’.”
Claire Reddleman writes: “I’m working on some sketches for a series, looking at excising text (and possibly all sorts of deliberate signs) from images of a journey through a street. This is proving more complicated than expected and pushing me to think about how photographing differs from perceiving – in that the way I conceived this idea is proving very difficult to realise; it seems that I notice things around me in a way that is very different to how they can appear in a photograph.”
More too on Claire’s ‘Oppositional High Street 2012’ detour that counters the hegemonic triumphalist narrative of High Street 2012
Michael Rodgers will be presenting his sketchbooks of current M.A work dealing with the study of figures in urban space and imaginative layering over the scene.
Len Salem will be presenting recently published work—‘A Train Journey in Winter’.
