More Found Object Photo’s

So I decided to take some more photographs but this time I brought a desk lamp into the studio so I could play around with lighting. I really enjoyed taking photographs in this way again. The fact that you have control of the set up – allowing you to create interesting compositions and control over the lighting is something which I have missed !

I plan to use these as just pictures to work from however I would like to use them in some other way as well. I really liked the shadows that were cast from the objects so maybe this could be another thing I could experiment with. It brought Cornelia Parker’s work to mind (pictured below)


I love this piece of work. I think there is a lot of potential for using objects I have found in a similar way to Parker. I first learnt about this piece in a history and theory lecture back on Foundation – If a remember correctly Parker blew up a shed and then hung all the pieces together in a gallery space. The shadows are an integral part of this work and I think they have just as much (if not more) importance to the piece than the shed parts. This brings back one of the ideas I had of dismantling objects and then putting them back together in a more interesting and visually exciting way.
