After my gap crit. I borrowed a slide projector and took out some slides from the British social history section in the slide library today. They range in date from the fifties to the nineties and are mainly from the Kingston Polytechnic’s “Teenage consumer” leaflet.
This is just a starting point to work from, I’m not sure what kind of work will result from it. I would like to do some sort of installation, along the lines of Phil Collins’ free fotolab (see context)
, developing the ideas talked about regarding ‘found photography’ in my critique. I could also use some of these slides as a source of imagery for my painting, just as Francis Bacon had a mass of photographs to reference in his work.
