Studio projects Monday June 30 2014 12:43 pm
Our British Library friend, Matthew Shaw, sent some photos of the start to the hanging of the exhibition of 24 of the poster sheets from our 2012 & 2013 Tour de Lead Graffiti clamshell box editions. How exciting is that?
Bill Deering, Ray’s former teaching colleague, is in London on a 5-week London study abroad program with a group of about 20 design seniors from the Visual Communications Group at the University of Delaware. Jill and I co-directed the trip with Bill from 2001 - 2005.
We’ve issued a challenge for Bill to pass along to the students that we hope at least a couple take us up on. We’ve offered a collaboration to work with us on one of the Tour de Lead Graffiti 2014 posters with one or more of the students who provide us with the best ’selfie’ of them with some element of the exhibition.
We’ll see what happens, but it would be great to get a couple interpretive shots.
A couple possibilities that come to mind. 1) One student in front of each holding their camera as if they are going to shoot a selfie and then someone else actually shooting a selfie with the other selfies in the background. 2) The students talk the British Library into letting each of them bring a bicycle into the exhibition and photograph the bike taking a selfie. I’ll bet no one ever in the history of the British Library has ever been allowed to bring a bicycle into the building. I wonder who you would have to talk to get that permission? 3) The students looking like they are a peloton moving by the exhibition but all taking selfies at the same time. Now wouldn’t it be cool if the person taking the bigger photo could do a bit of a timed photo (maybe 1 second exposure) and all of the other students could flash their camera during that 1 second so everyone seemed to be flashing simultaneously. 4) All of the students shooting a simultaneous selfie but with Michael Johnson (one of my most favorite British designers) in front. That give me goosebumps just thinking about it.
Oh, well. Just a few ideas off the top of my head.
