Comparing this module to my last hand in, I am much happier with the result. I feel that the work has come together and the way I am presenting it works well with the concept. Putting the work into a book worked well for me as it gave it a much more personal feel than […]

Video – Test Clips

I used a simple black and white theme for the quote, linking with the black studio setting that I have used for the both the photos and video clips. The text appears fairly small, giving the impression of being isolated and alone – all feelings linked to mental illness. I experimented with blood dripping down […]

Drowning – Test Images

I was left, however, still wanting to use the roses so experimenting with submerging them in water. I wanted each photograph in the seres to submerge to rose more as […]

I wanted both the photos of the dandelion and the self portraits to show deterioration. Although I am currently using the […]
