ARTIST STATEMENT


Backward-Looking:

  • How much did you know about the subject before we started?
How much I knew about this subject was very little. When we first got the assignment all I thought that architecture photographs were pictures of buildings or sculptures from far away. I never knew that you could get all close up to were that person would have to guess what the subject is. Like in the photograph that I took it was a close up of stairs and to me it looks like a whole bunch of zig zags to me. You can make anything into an architecture photograph.
  • What kind of problems did you encounter while you were working on this piece? How did you solve them?
What problems that I encounters while I was working on this piece is that I couldn't get the right angle of the stairs cause they weren't working in the way I wanted to for a while. Another problem was I didn't know what to take a picture of, which caused me to go in circles taking lots of photos in the end result.

Inward-Looking:

  • How did you feel about this piece of work? What parts of it do you particularly like? Dislike? Why? What do you enjoy about this piece of work?
What I feel about this piece of work is that it's good, but it could be better. The parts that I particularly like is that because of the pattern it plays with you're eyes. The parts I dislike is that its simple and the I changed from the beginning photo is that I turned it blake and white. Why I like and dislike those things is because its what I think I could of changed and what should stay the same. What I enjoy about this piece of work is at it makes me happy when I look at it just because it challenges me and I try to figure it out.
  • What did you learn about yourself as you worked on this piece?
What I learned about myself as I worked on this piece is that there is a lot more to me than what I thought. Another thing that I learned is that I can make a picture and turn in into something beautiful. I can make it into something like love, fear, scary, beautiful, free.

Outward-Looking:

  • Whats the one thing you particularly want people to notice when they look at your work?
The one thing I I want others to notice when they look at me work is that its challenging to the eye, and that whenever you're in a challenging situation try solving it.
  • If someone else were looking at the piece, what might they learn about who you are?
If someone else was looking at my piece they would learn that I am someone that like challenging situations and I try to solve then. Another thing that they would see is that I like things that are appearing to the human eye.

Forward-Looking:

  •  One thing I would like to improve upon is...
The color of the picture and the way it looks I could add more stairs into the picture or zoom into the picture so that you can get different outlooks of this single picture.
  •  What might you want next years teacher to know about you (What thing you're good at)?
What I want my next years teacher to know about me is that i'm a hard working person and I can make beautiful pictures when I feel like it. Im also really good at editing the photos in photoshop and I know how to layer the photography to make them look really cool.
