Process 2 to 3 weeks handmade ( photos and film) 

I made the wool because I want to show what it’s inside so we don’t know what it’s inside so that shows abstract. I have learned how to do video editing in adobe premiere pro from other class so I know how to edit video’s on adobe premiere pro. I really enjoy editing video’s.

From week one to four, we will be doing digital and tactile ideations. I did take a lot of photos of the creep. I felt my work was not good because some of the photos didn’t show the abstract so I wanted to improve on the photo’s of first week. Some photos were blurry because I wanted to show the creep side of it and also I felt happy with my photos. So my verb is creep so this verb its was complete and also its was not easy. That was really challenging for me but it was worth the challenge. The ten best work of those images I was thinking that they were the best images because its showed the dark space with powerful images and I had changed it with Photoshop. However, I had made a bit of a mistake because I didn’t realised that it should be only black, grey and white images.
Week two, I had used a different material e.g. Painting black/white/ grey, tools and chalk white/black. I felt alright about those paintings because I don’t have skill on painting and drawings but I had skills on photography. So I have tried to do my best in painting and drawing as well. I thinking that I’m happy with my second week work. I was mostly happy with the 10 best work because nothing showed real things and I have showed the abstract as well. I had done  some painting of human but it does not suit my verb. I felt happy because the Pinterest images was helpful to my work and also those research images give me lots of ideas.

Third week, I made 3D models and I had found from my home and also in Unitec. When I found the objects I put them on the studio in downstairs. I just didn’t realised that it would be more powerful if it showed the shadow on the back, so I set up normal lights so that it won’t show stronger light. Then I was thinking that I should add the light on my phone so that the lights on my phone are better than the normal light because my phone light showed real shadow. However, the Pinterest images had lots of shadows on the objects so it was similar to my work. I really was happy with those images so I felt that those images were better than the work I did 2 weeks ago.
Four week, we doing an exercise in HYBIRD. I had been choosing some photos made from 3 week ago so I used those images on my work from week four. Then I had the Photoshop to change the images. I made something new and different then I also made the gun glue on paper material because I wanted to showed a scary and creep side.

Self Portraits Photography

I have been researching on a person named Mohamud Mumin. His works based on doing photography of self portrait. He lives in USA Minnesota. I really love his work of photography on self portraits. Mohamud wanted to focus more of the positive about what happened in the Somali community. He began capturing the images of young Somalia men and their efforts to improve the lives others. On March 24, 2010 the Gallery in Minneapolis had an exhibition and showed his work. Mohamud work was amazing and it showed images of self portrait.

My Photography Self Portrait

I took all photos of my family. Mohamuds works really inspiration me which made me want to do these self portraits of my family. I think all images were well and success. The first image, I think is the best one because I can see good quality image and his eyes are shiny. But for next time I think next time I should had more light through his eyes.

Pinterest Research images ( Inspiration)

One person of my favourite surperimposed photography is Charles Bergquist. Those photos shown on the second images are surperimposed or layers over the first. I think I feel as though her photos have a haunting quality about them, Those photos are beautiful work of art. Those images are an inspiration of surperimposed photography so I will continue to follow her as an artist.


Two Best drawings A3

First Image: Deaf People can do anything, Hearing people think Deaf people can’t drive and have a job reason being is hearing people think Deaf people can’t communicate with hearing people. It is important for hearing people to learn about  Sign Language so they  can communicate easily with deaf people. I can drive of course, we just can’t hear that’s all. I believe we’re all the same as human beings. That’s why I created this A3 images.

Second Image: The hands shape is means in Sign Language  “I love you” . I added hand drawings because this is about my identify of who I am. Sign Language is very important for us to communicate with deaf people and hearing people. Deaf communities are really lucky because we have an official Sign Language in New Zealand.




Grid A1

I used the material such as pen , pencils, painting, paper, colour pencil and colour marker.

I have created A1 images and I will be creating more photoshop with photography, This is because I love doing photography. Even though painting and drawing are not my interest, I still have to try my best to do painting and drawing.



” Best grid Photoshop with photography images”


I added 5 images on the middle background so that I become more interested and succeed better. On the middle paper it says “shhhhhhh” I think that’s should be removed because the look I was applying do not make sense on this images. so i will do created more photoshop with photography.


Additive and Subtractive

choose the mostly success collection images.
