Individual project (E Portfolio)

Perspective one, two, three (Drawings)


Explain: I chose the quote called moray proverb Ka mua,  Ka murk- We walk into the future backwards. I’m doing a drawing of three point perspective so for my first one,  I drew a picture of a building because I wanted to relate it to one image. Pink and white terrace those had the layers of the rock with water that’s why I decided to draw the building that had layers related to one image.

Two point perspective, it was similar to three point perspective information on above.

One point perspective, I was drawing the train line because it felt like the one quote we walk into the future backwards related more to my drawing. For the One point perspective  drawing, I wanted to show from the past which is about the culture and the  value of the history.

I have been researching on Youtube and I think that was helpful for my drawing of the perspective. I don’t have 100% experience of drawing the perspective. Last year I was studying in Unitec doing a certificate course and I did manage to learn lots about the perspective of drawing which has helped me to have a better understanding on how to draw one, two and three perspective. I have been practising how to draw almost everyday and I draw once a day.


Ideas of my own model

I was research ideas of the my models.



My own Project 

I created  my own project using brief. I chose the quote “Maori Proverb Ka Mua, Ka murk”. I just think that quote was related to my own project because this quote is about the history. And also it shows the importance of values about the cultural history. That is why I created them as my own project. The culture is important to me because I grew up in the muslim religion and I had good memories about my own cultural things from the past.

Process (Shirin Neshat)

I created the image with Illustrator, I took photo of my oldest brother. Shirin Neshat work really inspired me because her work shows the culture and value of history. Her image included Arabic text,  which  is also  my culture because I always read the Arabic book that’s how she inspired me. Neshat’s work is about the relationship between women and culture value systems within islamic communities. I think I did my images really well because Neshat’s work and my images were both very similar. I just felt  that I wanted to do more creating of Illustrator, If I always take photos that will be boring so that is why I wanted to try something different of creating the illustrator.

For our group, their culture objects will be included in our model. Our group will be made of the objects culture put in our model. I created the model of my culture , I use papers and sellotape. This is Arabic word which is translation to “Allah” that means God, Muslim people believe God “Allah” . I grew up in a Muslim culture throughout my whole  life so it is important to me.

I made the model of the cave. I was thinking that I should of added the photos and put in the cave. I had tried to do a similar artist and her name is Sharon Neshat. She is an artist and her work really inspired me because  it related to my religion of the Quran words and also her photographer as well. I tried to get some ideas from her art work including the idea of models. I tried to think of something different when I made the model. I didn’t think it would  be the same as her work. So I decided to make the model of the cave instead.


Final model

The material I used is metals so I found metals in Building 76 upstair. I was thinking that I should use those materials because no one used this materials.  I then used grey while, black cupboard and glue gun. I wanted to make the cave because I want to create the cave inside to pretend to show the exhibition however, I just imagined that people walking in the cave. With that imagination, that’s how I wanted to create the cave exhibition. My model was big but this model size is length 60cm, weight 20cm and height 30cm.









I created the photoshop and also with my photographer. I just think that all the images went really well because all the images are related to my group project. It was culture models and also that image was included in my model.

Group Project Process/ Final work

Our group: Savannah, Tristan, Liam, Lelua and Niand.

This was my first idea of our projects, The ideas I got from this project was I wanted to show the materials on the roof and I wanted to take photos of strangers in Unitec. I also wanted to show their culture of the self portraits.



Our group discuss is about the ideas of the model for exhibition in the building one, however we did lots of discuss so we got new ideas of the project which is called the space of Solar System. One student in my group had the first idea of Solar System so, I just did told my group  that I thought about it and I’m not happy with that because it looks boring because I wanted it to be more deeper of the model.  Some of the members from my  group agreed and we will be making the Solar System. We told our teacher we got new ideas, then we brainstormed outside of cube made in paper, but the top and bottom of the cube is covered, so from there the exact representation of the Solar System is hanging down by a string. We planned to name two of the Solar System.

Saynab Muse – Sun/Moon

Shane Rodrigues – Mercury/ Mars

Lelua Taufua – Earth/Pluto

Tristan Cui – Mars/New Horizon Probe

Ninad Mahesqari – Uranus and Mars

Savannah Halo Pascoe – Venus

Liam Saturn – ISS and box

As a group we needed to think of some new ideas cause Solar System is boring because it was simple like high school work. So we needed to space exploration which is the theme, and we tried to find a deeper meaning behind our ideas so we can develop it. We just chip in our ideas on Thursday.

Discuss and ideas 

New ideas







Our group did drawing of the ideas model, people in our group had lots of different ideas and also lots of discuss about the model.


 Final Group project

We already informed it the model so, we started to make seven boxes and also we have lots of plans about the final model. Our sevens boxes will be put on building one . I used the PlayStation Plus 4 box from my cousin. No one used this box so i used this box. I just felt really good about learning practice of the exhibition because it made us prepare and practice for the future, e.g when I work in the area of photography or other things. I was just thinking that this is a good example of what will happen one day if I do an exhibition in the future. I created inside in the box, I wanted to show what Somalia looked like because In Somalia, they don’t have enough water, food and other things. My family moved to New Zealand and they were really lucky live here. Because In New Zealand, they have good Education.


I started to cut shapes of the star because my culture had stars on the flag.IMG_1168.JPG


I was thinking that I should use the black painting because I wanted to show the meaningful of powerful within the model.img_1165.jpg

I decided use the black painting.IMG_1175.JPG


Next day, I had to start painting again because I can see the background of the PlayStation plus 4 .IMG_1194.JPG

I used the led lights and also I wanted to show the lights memories of the past in Somalia.IMG_1173.JPG

Next day, I was still keep going the painting because I wanted my model to look professional. I don’t want to see colour on the background so I covered it black painting.IMG_1205.JPG

Our group was set up on the tables, so our boxes will be on the table. I was thinking that I should add the led lights on the middle of the table. I wanted it to look good at the exhibition. Tristan and I doing set up of the tables so I was thinking maybe next day that it will be changed because it was not perfect on those tables. So I wanted it to be perfectly displayed on the table. IMG_1192.JPG

I was mostly left a bit of  brown spots on the background. I was thinking that I should add the black painting in this box because I wanted to match same colour. IMG_1218

If I didn’t added the led light it would look boring so I just wanted to show more interesting things in my project. IMG_1231

I just cut out a picture of  Somalia so I wanted to show the reality of the images and also I want to do the 3D images maybe I will do the reality 3D images next semester.

“set up Exhibition”

On 25th June, Tristan and I was doing started again because we went to showed more profession of the exhibition so we changed our mind and I just felt better with this one rather than the other one. Tristan and I have lots of the discuss what should change the tables. And also Tristan and I were happy with those tables because it looked way better than before.  IMG_1229

Next day, we already changed it again because we want people to walk around looking our exhibition. IMG_1317
