Using your pinhole cameras,task 2requires you to investigate photographically, the personality of an open place/space when it is devoid of human presence.
You will have little control of the light with your handmade (pin hole) camera so you will have to test and learn how it interprets the world. As the pinhole camera is rela8vely rudimentary equipment, (unless you make a more sophis8cated version) this task will help you to achieve the learning outcome of appropriate pre visualisation skills. Through your tests, you will learn to understand how your vision is transformed into an image and a permanent negative can be created.
Reflect on the personality of place/space you are represen8ng (it may be a public space where people convene or a more private space) and how it is momentarily transformed when it is populated by certain individuals or groups of people. Consider the impact of a human presence on the space and think about how you can document this ‘non’ space (Auge 95).
Your submited work must be original to you. Using your acquired printing skills to enhance your assessed task, you will need to submit 2 – 4 final photographic prints which represent the space you are documenting. Remember this task is part of the assessed work for this module so you are advised to spend time building on and improving your initial starting point.
