5 images

Day 2 was slightly less eventfull but still pretty interesting in terms of how it will all be working in relation too the studio and who will be around to bounce ideas off of. I got into the studio around 10:30 and began work on selecting my 5 images ready for next Tuesday. As i was going into the mac i bumped into my old first year tutor Patrick who was bringing up the first year students too meet drew but i didn't realise that until just now.

The first image was of a space made by an artist called Angela (found in an issue of Elle decoration) i tried to analyze what i liked about the space and broke it down into these points:
  • Evidence of previous use
  • Simplicity (minimalism)
  • Organic forms and materials
  • Neutral colour schemes
  • Eclectic furnishings
  • subdued lighting (not sure if that is the right word)
I couldn't find who designed the second picture but someone called Morten Smidt was connected with it:
  • Decadence
  • Historic Base
  • Symmetry and Harmony
  • Unusual colour scheme
  • Attention to detail
  • Morbid detailing
The third is another magazine cut out:
  • Eclecticism
  • Vintage furniture/textiles
  • concrete floors
  • texture
  • simple lighting
  • beautiful things
  • magazines and books everywhere
  • eclecticism
  • quirkiness/originality
The 4th is by Masamichi Katayama, a store based around the idea of an ice cream parlour, it reeks of his style:
  • Decadence
  • Confusion
  • Mirrors
  • Originality
  • surrealism
  • Parody
  • Humour
1 more too go.
