camberwell catalogue revised version

Here is the pdf for the Camberwell catalogue.

Last Tutorial:

We discussed my broadcast at the week end. Jonathan mentioned that adverts come up on the Livestream screen if it’s watched in full screen mode, so am thinking about this, and the possibility of paying for a month to avoid this for the degree show broad cast.

Jonathan mentioned Gillian Wearing’s video 1996 work ‘Sixty minute silence’. Wearing has been an artist I have been aware of in the context of my work.

We discussed the idea of moving the piece out of doors to a street setting there are several issues over health and safety to do with this idea that I am not sure I will have time to resolve. But will be a project to take forward from the end of the MA.

We also discussed the positive impact the loss of broadband connectivity had on changing the piece to something more immediate and less staged. We also touched on the element of endurance to my work which is coming to the forefront.

We talked about the impact and importance of a piece being broadcast live rather than as a dvd. I still need to blog to clarify my position and ideas on this.

This is an issue that has just come up in an email today from Ina about cables and connectivity at the show and with the imacs having low wifi broadband connectivity.  Have been having ongoing connectivity issues again at home this week as has my sister working at Derby City Council where their broadband has been dropping out suddenly for half days over the past two weeks.

So will definitely create and send down a video in case connectivity is poor on the night or for the assessment.

The work just seems to be increasing.

It feels rather like trying to pack a house ready for moving, where you find your self living between two states or place of beinigng: one foot in the past and one in the future;  exciting, sad, bewildered too at times.

I am trying to be methodical.  Am starting to get a real sense of the journey I have made over this course. Its given me a bit of a shock as just now it seems to have been a huge one. Having more impact and bringing about more change than I realised. Now am focusing on packing up and letting go and looking ahead ready for the next leg of the journey.

Catalogue update:

The layout is pretty much complete. I have printed and folded the covers today.

Made mock ups using 2 different weights of paper:

There are 3 images that seem to be printing incorrectly and leaving un printed gaps in the image. I had this with the logo design and had to find a work around which will do again with these images if possible.

I also have concerns over the weight of paper for the catalogue given the number of pages, 27, which makes the final catalogue thicker than usual so am looking at other possible paper options as I want this to be as right as possible for the group.
