Description

A series of everyday objects taken out of their usual context and visually re-embedded in a pictorial large-scale (natural or built) environment.

In the practical part of the course, the students were asked to put together a personal collection of everyday objects with interesting forms and to subsequently capture them photographically. Once photographed, the objects were detached from their photographic backgrounds and listed in an inventory. After removal of the items from their usual context, the next task was to reinterpret them on a large scale, transferring and rescaling them to produce entities that appear architectural, based on the objects’ form-, colour- and material-related properties. To this end, the course participants viewed and selected historical and contemporary photography collections pertaining to both urban and rural contexts. These served as a visual basis, into which the objects were to be inserted. In adherence to the prevailing principles of light and perspective in these images, the everyday items were then photographed, before being isolated and finally placed in their new visual context appropriately, using digital montage. In addition to conveying ideas about visual composition and teaching digital image-processing techniques, the aim was to demonstrate the potential of the collage via the creation of new contexts in terms of both image and meaning.
