Suprematism

Founded in Moscow by Kazimir Malevich in 1913 and was concerned with using utilitarian strategies to adapt art to the principles of functional organisation. I other words they strove to convey objects in nature and real life with shapes arranged in space on canvas.

Bauhaus

Below is another image that I prepared for my montage. This one represents the bauhaus movement, which was founded by Walter Gropius in 1919 and located initially in Weimar, Germany but later moved to Switzerland. the aim of Bauhaus was to combine art, architecture, graphic design, interior design, industrial design and typography to produce functional and aesthetically pleasing design.

Completion of Mapping Project

Today I finished designing the DIY map for people visiting Hereford College of Arts. The concept comprises a map of all floors of the building with symbols that can be cut out and applied to provide directions to young children, other language speakers or anyone with reading difficulties. The map could be assembled and then sent by smart phone to the recipient.
