Today we were using found images to create an imagined space. Following on from the martians project, this was interesting because we all relate to spaces, the home is central to our humanity, and the built environment directly correlates to our image, dimensions and cultural preferences.
Natural spaces are also often shaped by the whims of human beings, the English countryside looks unruly but is shaped by thousands of years of agriculture. When it is truly wild then it is the adverse completely are we are in danger from it rather than a danger to it.
Many of my found images were really nostalgic for me, because I hoard images and bits of paper, old photographs, even when they are really bad! So for me the collages were bit like piecing together and re-constructing memories.
