Setting up for marking.

On Thursday we all met in studio to set up for marking/grading. I collected the TV from Power Store.

Symen had kindly built me a plinth, which I painted along with some movable walls.

Every thing went really well with all of us students helping to clear out and set up the studio. Another Student suggested that I go with a few others in a block of corners.

Here is the final set up for marking:

I went to Speedy Print in Nelson and got them to print out my Contextual Statement on quality paper, along with instructions ( instructions for people to turn on my exhibit, when I’m not around)  which I made up into a PDF. I had the instructions laminated as this looked more professional.

My work has a small title attached to the plinth which has the name of the work ‘A Dream by My Children’ and my contact details:

I had Speedy Print, print this onto card  – hopefully it will draw people who see it at the public exhibition to my photography page on Facebook or better still to contact me!

If I had enough time I would have business cards set up ready for people to take away with them, but I am in the process of re-designing my logo.. just don’t have them ready yet.

Symen suggested I have seats for people, so they could sit down and really enjoy my work. I thought this was a great idea.. I tried a bean bag, but it was really too low for people. The red seats in the Johnny Cash room at NMIT were nicer than the studio chairs so I used them. They looked rather flash.

I left the remote on the plinth easy to see in front of the TV and the documents on the viewing chairs.

Photographed, and then finished.. done!
