My response to the task was by focusing on the texture of the walls, where I ended up at, a step away from the wall. I had to photograph and make them seem interesting. I designed it green and focused my iPhone lenses into the wall and cropped the images. The images worked out to be focusing around the aesthetics and shapes of the walls, and what I can do to make it more interesting. I worked around different camera settings and how close I was to the object.
This project task at first was an in class task and then I decided to developed this into a body of work. I wanted to explore different textures and how time changes through different things in our day-to-day life. I moved away from focusing just on walls, and decided to focus on different things, for example concrete, moss, glass etc. I focused on how changing the positions of the objects, or the colour of them can give them more life and shape. I used my iPhone to photograph these images as within time that’s also developed into something everyone now uses. We forget our surroundings, this gives meaning to time, and we’ve lost focus on the changes around us. I carried on working and responding to the way I photographed textures, and the way they have been deteriorating within time.
