Final Images - 'Last'




These images show how we presented our photo's in the crit. I felt we put alot of effort into the overall presentation of the work in a recreation of an office desk.

One of the things I wish we'd done now is print an A2 size version of our three photos' but hey, I guess we got carried away in the whole police desk presentation. The photo's themselves leave alot to the imagination when relating them to the last hiding place of our chosen criminals;

- Archibald Hall - Lavatory (then escaped through the window)
- Ted Bundy - Volkswagen beetle
- Raoul Moat - Storm Drains

The lighting technique we pursued feels a lot more controlled in these images opposed to our previous use in the woods and the basement. Purely down to the decision made not to create too many distracting light trails or obvious patterns.




Great project all in all and an even better oppurtunity to work with people I have never worked with before. Thanks to Dohee and Karina.

Cults...and our job of creating one

First off this awesome project costing only £500 to send a little man to the edge of the worlds statosphere and record all that it sees.

I don't know how this could link in with the creation of a cult but i'll figure something.




Second we have 'The Room' possibly the worst film ever made but has a cult following for the quality of acting, certain quotes, the atrocity of resemblance to human representation and of course the director/protagonist role of Tommy Wiseau.

Last place to hide...serial killers!

Finding a truth in the last hiding places was a difficult process but after speaking to tutors sent a spark off in my head to do with the last place killers on the run hide...

It links in quite nicely with the technique or group has worked with so far 'painting light' into dark places.
So, here are some examples of the last place to
hide for serial killer. Graham Young who hid in his fathers basement before getting arrested.




Also this is a really cool archive of subterrain london tunnels, search the November 2005 articles and look for the London Topical article.

Kanye West - Full length film



Awesome film, some interesting cinematography and most thought provoking is his message..

Anticipating his new album coming out in 2 weeks.. it may just be the first album I buy in a few years.

Reading Week


Halloween was jokes, Nic took an awesome photo of me so I decided to do a self-portrait.. thinking of getting it printed.. not like I'm vain or anything. Just it's the first drawing I've done in a while that I like.

Buckfast Wine

So for the North South divide, myself and the group decided on the interesting story that surrounds a Tonic Wine called Buckfast...

Made by Benedictine Monks in Buckfast Abbey, located in Devon. This fortified wine has an alcoholic content of 15% and drop for drop has more caffeine in it than Red Bull. Pretty staggering and unheard of for most of the youth in the South. If you were to travel all the way up to Glasgow you'd find a large following who almost religiously drink Buckfast.

Combining these two contrasting truths we planned and presented an initiation for Northerners into 'the Buckfast society.' I played a minister of the Church and believe me, my throat was fooked after this...

Initial test for the new brief, an observation of a typical english beverage and the different ways of enjoying it. True to its word, this is how it goes down...

The Jungle Book

Scat bap doobie doop baba scat thats what this type project is all abaat.




Louis Prima - original rare footage of a live performance which then led to the animators using their movements for the actual scene.

Oded Ezer - Israeli typographer with some amazing work that I feel visualises the movement of the letters or context of the words.

Good influence for this project; check out his biotypography

I don't like skateboarding...

Graffiti without the can


Found here. I love street art, I love street art that hasn't been sprayed or painted, I love street art that has been sprayed or painted. What I now love is cement street art.

I did a couple of engraving on a wall where I get high sometimes, if I didnt get so high I would of taken a photo of it. If and when I go back and remember, I'll take some photos, discretely of course.

Kristian Hammerstad





Stuck in the uni library.. with google reader to keep me company. Found this over on Black Harbor, it's by a Norwegian guy from oslo, the only place I could say I know in Norway.
Anyway, its awesome, he's recreated some pulp art and I think the colour scheme on the legs print is sublime. Zombie hoes and dapper dogs, oh yesh.

Saw Scott Pilgrim vs. the World the other day as well; absolutely loved the 16bit intro from Universal pictures and the quirky inclusions of "thump" or "bang" never read the comics so cant say how it matches up...ask Adrian.


One last thing...

Black Harbor won't let me view their homepage on this computer because im limited to Internet Explorer, lame. Do love their way of saying 'get with the times'

High up.






Long exposure shots, practice basically. Taking my 350d out to Cooper Hill - The last remaining heath in Bedfordshire. Also three projects on the go at the moment; designing menus and a website for a local restaurant in Bedford, Photography for the family and a zine called ROBOTS: THEY DESIGN YOUR LIFE. All will be posted in due time.

This summer has been so busy with all these other things in my life, I feel like it's going to be over before it's begun. Hey it's also my birthday on Thursday so whoooo!

Red Dead..

Treated myself to Rockstars new release, Red Dead Redemption, sequel to the game Red Dead Revolver which was also sick. I stumbled upon this sweeet catalogue over on The Black Harbour.

here's a Low-Res
.pdf version of it.

It's produced by Astra Darosona and is called 'Greed stands on two legs'




Type objects.


Me and Steph created this type from wall plugs a few weeks back. Really happy with the quality of photocopying and the grainy feel.
