Pick Me Up at Somerset house

Went along last Saturday with Nic. First time either of us had been and we went with high hopes and an idea of what it had in stall.

I have to say, a lot of the work was to a very high standard and the varying techniques had me admire the quality of idea and the process to match it. But seeing as I've had the word 'concept' drilled into me over the last year and a half I wanted to see 3D pieces, performances, really simple engaging outcomes. I did see some lovely infographics that gave me a large list of books to read.

Entertaining ourselves for about an hour or so in the large Workshop room where the public had an opportunity to create a collage piece to take away with them. An array of image vectors, type, patterns and signage was there to be torn, cropped, resized, overlapped, duplicated and pasted at somepoint onto paper. Great fun and ended up making this A5 sized piece with four images related to Owls! Probably because I haven't seen one in years it felt appropriate to make a personal reminder of this Nocturnal natured bird.

Anyway here are a few images of the event from my trusty HTC and a scan of the zine.

Berlin & a few late Winter shots.

Sonic speed.

Just about got this done. A laser cut invitation cover that states 20th. A foldout invitation that is full bleed with details of the summer of sonic.

Also a poster with an illusion effect.

To be rephotographed as it was slightly BOTCHED.
