I have chosen to use the photography as a dominant media through which I will be presenting my project. In order to do so my presentation will take a format of the photo exhibition. I have booked a room (32SFB) for the day of the Jury. It’s a bit too large and there is this massive AA model there so I have to see how to deal with the space.
So the exhibition will consist of several parts:
1) Introduction + shaping the argument
Here I will introduce the project and shape my argument on what is London’s architectural identity and how has it been changing under the effect of globalisation. I will have many (still deciding on the quantity) small format photos of London showing the facades of traditional architecture, modern architecture as well as the facades from globalised cities which I am claiming London is becoming alike.
2) Re-con of Fagus
I will talk about the Re-con project. I will have 6-8 larger photos on the wall and the AA photo book on the table.
3) My response to the argument (fragments)
Here I will show and talk about the role of the blocks and how they transform the streetscapes of London. The format will be similar to the Re-con part, 6-8 photos on the wall and the photo book on the table for further discussion.
4) New London
This is the part where the larger image of the project is revealed. If earlier you can see the fragments of the blocks in the streets, here you get to see the panorama photos of London with blocks in place. These photos will be in a large format.
This is the brief explanation of the upcoming exhibition. I went up to the Shard’s viewing platform on Sunday and took nice panoramas of different parts of the city, they are to be collaged soon. Here are some of the images:
I am working on few things at the same time now, modelling the exhibition room, gathering images for the Intro and collaging the panoramas.
