Sound Work

I have decided to use the audio file of ‘Want Have Become Be’. This audio work really well in communicating the consumption of signs in which the consumer is involved.

  • Want of the object
  • Having/Purchasing the object
  • Becoming the objects qualities,
  • Being the ideals the consumer perceives within the commodity

The sound will be coming from two of the plinths so as to not over come the viewer and still play with the notions of perception within consumerism. 

Exhibition Preparation

These photographs depict details of the plinth composition and documentation of the lighting. The set up includes: 6 plinths, 6 Perspex tops, 6 Resin Spheres, Lighting, 2 Speakers & Ipods. 

These two are my prototypes for my final series, I am deciding which text I would like. 

The ‘Deluxe’ on the left is the smaller size, I think to look like the text belongs within the sphere it need to be more central.

The ‘Deluxe’ on the right is more elongated and warped, I think the focus is drawn to the abstract of the letters, towards the typography rather than the word. 

I am choosing the smaller text but to lower it down to be more central, the larger the text the more over powering it will be and the less it will be about the word/language. 

Plinth Fabrication

These photographs show the progress of my plinths. They are deigned to house speakers, incorporating light and movement also. 

They will be paint white as I am communicating ideas of core ideology of consumerism, a sense of something immaterial and perfect. 

Photography inspired by Jeremy Hutchinson 

This photography was to involve the human body within the consumer product selling. I think hand models & mannequins for a connection to the everyday consumer and therefore bridges them to their ideology.

Plinth designing

This visualization of the plinths I will exhibt with the spheres help me undertsnad the physicality of the presentation devices. I have designed it so there is a platform sat on the top of the plinth body, this will elevate the sphere further and add a sense of belonging as the platform is designed specifically for the sphere.

Sounds



I have been experimenting with some sound recording to exhibit with the spheres & plinths. I will be recording in the univerisity’s recording studio the following scripts:

This one is our best seller

This one is our most popular

We have sold so many of these

This one is 50% off

This one is limited eidtion

This one would be perfect

This one would suit you so well

This one is 3 for 2 today

This one is on offer today

Have you seen this new one?

Want me

Have me

Own me

Become

I will record and experiment with volume, composition of sounds, and which group of sounds. I plan to use the X-mini speakers and an ipod to play teh sound from within the plinths.

Coloured Light

I wanted to experiment with coloured light inspired by You Erwin Redl’s light installations. The coloured lighting created interesting visuals yet I am communicating a sense of purity and core reasoning of consumer behaviour/ideology therefore I think the colour is distracting and brings forward connotations of mass consumerism with bright lights and vibrant colour.

'For fifteen years I express my art making light installations, work space, with light, I investigate and explore it as though it were a second skin.' - Redl
I interpret the lighting of these forms as the commodity’s second skin, the enchantment of the consumer object/environment.
