I have constructed the room with walls, door and windows and I have used the boolean to hole the wall and to make the windows and door before I added material.

After I  constructed the room with wall, door and windows then I have added appropriate materials to complete the house.

Victoria and Albert Museum

Disobedient Objects

This exhibition surprises in many ways. Firstly in contrast to the rest of the exhibitions that are on display which look very ordered, defined and mainly in brightly lit glass cases, the disobedient objects exhibition is placed on one side of the museum and as you enter, it feels as if you have arrived in your worst nightmare. The exhibits look disorganised and a mix and match of items that do not look as if they belong in the same place. The silver bars going from floor to ceiling looked as if the objects were imprisoned.

I was confused on first look but as I read the text on each exhibit I finally understood what this exhibition was about and was fascinated by the politics, history and the struggles of people trying to bring about change in various situations and making their voices heard using objects to put their points across.

Nike Blanket 


IMG_0063  The Nike blanket exhibit was a protest against cheap labour used for Nike garments. It was placed on the wall quite high and though the blanket in its size and colour made an impact to understand the protest, its position was hard to notice. The text was placed nearer eye level and therefore you know that there is an exhibit somewhere.

Another exhibit celebrated solidarity. It was a mix of slogans, logos, printed t-shirts, leaflets and more. I was astounded with the amount of things on display and the strong messages that scream from the walls. The display is a muddle of objects but because of this muddle you are captivated by it and feel like “sticking together” with the people of these struggles.

Going through each object you feel more and more like you are part of each struggle. They have a strong impact on you and when you come out of the disobedient objects exhibition back into the orderly structure of the museum you feel exhausted but inspired to look for the next struggle and play a part in its movement.

26 July 2014 – 1 February 2015

From a Suffragette tea service to protest robots, this exhibition is the first to examine the powerful role of objects in movements for social change. It demonstrates how political activism drives a wealth of design ingenuity and collective creativity that defy standard definitions of art and design. Disobedient Objects focuses on the period from the late 1970s to now, a time that has brought new technologies and political challenges. On display are arts of rebellion from around the world that illuminate the role of making in grassroots movements for social change: finely woven banners; defaced currency; changing designs for barricades and blockades; political video games; an inflatable general assembly to facilitate consensus decision-making; experimental activist-bicycles; and textiles bearing witness to political murders.



The Solar System Booklet

My idea is ‘The Solar System’ for the booklet.

I have made my own planets with different textures and techniques to make them look like real planets in Photoshop.

These are the Photoshop tools that I used to make The Solar System,  Outer Glow, Cloud, Level, Brightness / Contrast and Elliptical Marquee Tool. I created every single planet using these tools. I was not sure how to make these but with a little research and experiment I was able to design and create the planets.

I got feedback about this booklet and was told that I needed to add some statistics about planets for example, temperature, distance from earth and diameter. The font needed to be lighter. Gaps to the edge of pages needed to be equal. All the pages needed clearer borders by not putting text and images too close to the borders.Screen Shot 2015-01-11 at 17.18.32

Painting 3D Modelling

I chose this famous painting by Paul Cezanne. I have decided to make cloth, pear, apple, vase and table together for 3d modelling.Curtain Jug And Fruit Paul Cezanne



This is the original painting image by Paul Cezanne.

Making into 3D each different types of objects:


Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 16.00.09Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 16.00.00 Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 16.00.21


This is the table in Cinema 4D so I need table to put apple, pear, orange, cloth, etc on table so I can’t do this without table.


Screen Shot 2014-12-14 at 12.57.06Screen Shot 2014-12-14 at 12.57.21Screen Shot 2014-12-14 at 12.57.00


I created the cloth using cloth and cloth collider tools.


I have created pear by using spline, lathe and used to configure.

Screen Shot 2014-12-14 at 13.05.42

I used configure to created the pear by using spline tool around the image of pear and upload into lathe. I would find easier to use configure because I would make pear look accraute.

I have created apple by using spline, lathe and used to configure.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 15.52.56

As same the pear when I made first one so I used configure to created the apple by using spline tool around the image of apple and upload into lathe. I would find easier to use configure because I would make apple look accraute.

Again….As same the pear and apple when I made first one so I used configure to created the lemon by using spline tool around the image of lemon and upload into lathe. I would find easier to use configure because I would make lemon look accraute.

Famous Painting 2_0081


I found this project easy enough and enjoyed creating my own version of this painting. I learnt to use new tools like configure and special tools to design the cloth. I feel confident to redesign and create more.


Burning Desire-Mariko Mori



Burning desire is a glass print photograph of five images that are dressed in religious clothes. They seem to be worshipping in a desert with four of the figures dressed similarly and each engulfed in flames.

Why are they sitting and worshipping and above all why is one figure raised and floating above the others not in flames but wearing clothes that look like she is a goddess and has a ring of rainbow around her?

This image goes back to the artists strong religious and Japanese background. It shows peoples strength in their faith and religion that even in flames they are sitting calmly as Buddhism is a religion for your soul and is known for its peace and tranquility. The burning figures seem to be worshipping to the floating goddess that they aspire to become. The flaming figures could represent the journey to “nirvana” which is the highest state a person can attain after burning away all their human desires. This art work is Mori’s vision of reaching paradise, therefore the image of the pure goddess type figure with the halo of colours above and after burning away your desires and sins in this world.

On the other hand if you view this piece without knowledge of the artist it can be seen that if you commit evil you will burn forever in flames but if you are good in life you will rise to heaven. The image is taken in an isolated desert as if judgement is going to be passed on their life and either they will be risen or explode in flames.

The image is printed on five large glass panels which creates a huge cinema like image. You feel totally immersed in the image and it feels as if you are also going to be judged.



Mirror City Image Analysis

Black Hole-Mohammad Qasim Ashfaq


Mohammed Qasim Ashfaqs art piece Black Hole III, 2012-2013 is simple in its design and colour and on initial view looks like a circle simply coloured black. However close up you become astounded at the hundreds of detailed precise lines and dark tones that seem to create a star from out of this world. The design of the lines as they disappear into a central vanishing point makes the viewer feel as if they are being swallowed up by a black hole fulfilling the desire of the artist as the title of this piece shows.

Ashfaq artworks are inspired by his interest in space and science fiction and are very exact and precise in nature. This perfection is opposite to the chaos of the real world and as you view the Black Hole you become curious as to what life could hold in an orderly and disciplined world as the precise nature and perfection of the art piece demonstrates. On further inspection and by looking at the work from different angles the shades and tones of the art changes very slightly and you really do feel as if you are falling through a hole and may or may not land at some destination.

The first impression of the Black Hole is of peace and tranquility as all you see is a round black circle but as you take your time over the piece the hole takes on a life of its own and seems to be moving ever so slowly through space swallowing up everyone who dares to take their time staring at the Black hole.

Photo Montages-John Stezaker

0fa9bb6d-fa87-4328-a274-6de95b65e6d5-620x611 MC_John Stezaker_PC url

John Stezakers photo montages are created from photos of Hollywood stills and seem to create a story within a story. They are not just two photos put together for the sake of art but the photo montages feel as if it is the original photo. The photos are cut using what seems like a surgeons knife and cut with straight angular lines. They are easy on the eye and without any thought process it is easy to interpret the photo montages.

Stezaker has a number of photo montages on display and the way he decides which photos should become part of one photo montage shows the sense of humour of the artist. Each montage is amusing, entertaining and very clever.

Choosing black and white photos also enhances the mystery surrounding the originality of the photo as much of the audience today will be unaware of the films these stills are taken from. Also by using black and white photos the photo montages are sharp and distinctive and feel they have more of a story to tell than simply a photo stuck on the wall.

Stezakers work is one of the easier pieces on the eye at Mirrorcity and definitely easier to interpret. Placed in one horizontal line on a white background you become immersed in the work and feel there should be many more montages on display for the audience to appreciate and be further entertained.






loPoly images in Illustrator

I am going to make loPoly images in illustrator. I have never used illustrator before so this was going to be quite an experience!



This is the original image.

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 16.29.07

This was my first attempt to produce the image and took some time to get it this far. I knew this was not a very good production and there was plenty of room for improvement. The shapes did not connect correctly and the colouring was all wrong.

Me Improvement 2

This was my second attempt and definitely an improvement. I learnt from the mistakes on the first try and think this is much better and more of a balanced illustration.
