Untitled (mod roc landscape)
Photo Description:
Digital macro photograph; mod roc; architectural figure. This work developed from a project about The Overlooked. After thinking about everyday objects which we normally ignore, a cast of the inside of a coffee cup lid - rescued from a bin - was taken using mod roc. This somehow made the lid seem more important. To increase this sense of importance, the cast was turned into a landscape, by adding a 1:200 scale architectural figure. The landscape was then photographed using a D-SLR camera with a lens which was attached backwards, giving a macro image. The A4 photograph and the cast (approx. 8.5cm in diameter) are two parts of the same work. They make us think about scale, and about the possible story of the human figure. They also make us think more carefully about the objects which we normally overlook.
