Week 2, our teachers visited our class their had presentation with Gina and Ben when I watched their presentation. I think that’s really interested to me because her work is showed the ideas of touch, space, body, air-activation of space with air. I never heard it before because it’s about collection of hairs so little hairs – rolled up, set out, hairballs moved around in relation to wind/draft. She grew up in the farmer area so she wanted to show us about her background of the wool, hairs and others. She worked within the landscape using wood the longer it went on the more tattered it became work with all conditions with environment. Gina made a huge knitted path for walking on track so people can walk on the knitted path. The people walked on grass path and then other people don’t want to walk on the knitted path because they don’t want damaged on knitted path. And other people took their shoes off. She made a box that is for honesty so when people walk on knitted path then they put coins in the box because this makes people think about damage caused by walking. I was thinking I might do some of her work & this will be including on my work in the future because her work is about grown up and family. I want to become the photography in the future so my photography work will be self -portraits family and also stranger self -portraits so I want their storytelling about their background. I think that was important to me because of values about the history and grown up background. She was influenced to me because her work was reminded me in the past In Somalia and also reminded me of my grandma live in famer at Somalia.
Ben Presentation is about apple products, car and music magazines. He was talking about the thing that people learn that are still transferable working and can be helpful. He was talking about past of the old technology style, car and music products. I was thinking that was interesting for me because I never heard of old robot styles and radio design before. It was a big change for technology compared from the past to now. I was thinking that Ben presentation was really good because it’s about old faction technology to now. He showed us images of old technology so that remind me when I was young I used old Ipod and other things.
Allan was talking about documenting photography, however he grew up in the 1950s in New Zealand. He made photographs when he was 18 years old. Then he did photos with lots of old buildings in New Zealand. In Auckland building boom, the buildings property and selling on quickly. It’s was old building in Christchurch provide historical cultural to the Cuban landscape. The old buildings in Christchurch and others gets pulled down because the reason is its very old buildings and earthquake as well. I can see Allan’s photos had professional photographer however, his work is show usually good images because it’s really good quality and also his work show us images of meaning the building and background.
I really interested to me because three people was similar their presentation because those people relative information of the background. I just felt that those ideas will be including with my photographer in the future. I think is important of part of culture, grown up background need be including photographer career in the future so it’s was important to me as well. In the future I want to become professional photographer so I want to photographer will be including the culture images and self-portrait story-telling.
