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.
The Dada movement was founded by Hugo Ball, a poet, and Emmy Hennings, a dancer, at Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich in 1915.
Their main aim was political protest and reaction against war and the butchery of WW1. They were also anti art of the Petit Bourgoise.
Later groups were formed in Berlin, Hannover, Cologne, Paris and New York
The next few posts will include the individual pieces of work that I produced to make my final montage on Key Developments in Visual Communication between 1915 and 1940. The first one is main image for Futurism.
The Futurists were founded in 1910, in Milan, by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. It was an artistic and social movement inspired by speed and the motor car, technology, youth, violence, patriotism and war. They were also supporters of Mussolini and Fascism. The Futurist manifesto was printed in Le Figaro newspaper at the time.
Not many posts lately because we have been busy silk-screen printing and have just begun new briefs. However, during my preparation for the infographic Key Developments in Visual Communication between 1915 and 1940, I was preparing an image depicting cubism and decided to cut a picture of Pablo Picasso and another of Georges Braque in half and join them together. The outcome was uncanny…
It was a perfect fit?
Well, what do you make of that?
I will be posting the complete infographic shortly.
Each member of the group was given a line from a song, at random, and we had to manipulate text to convey the meaning. I was given “People try to put us down, just because we get around” [My Generation – The Who] and this is my design, which will be silk-screen printed to make a poster….
We were given a task to generate a set of 8 images that respond to the question ‘What are you like?’ by documenting your following favourites:
- Form of Transport
This was what I produced in response….
These are the fish that I produced using the laser cutter. To give an idea of scale the blue fish is 400mm x 400mm. It will be used as a target for teaching children fly-casting.
