Today, I took a video. In conclusion, it was disaster. Basically, I wanted decadent theme for this video but my model who is my girlfriend was totally far from being decadent model. Even I tried to take video more than 50 times, she failed to express the theme I wanted. Finally I gave up. So I just edited the best thing among that videos. Using IMOVIE was absolutely difficult. I’m not used to use this kind of things in the computer or smart phone.
On Wednesday, I finished to make a final piece anyway. And I considered the place to take video. I decided to take video at shower. But I don’t really like my work, because I think I didn’t do one’s best. During this project I didn’t focus on very much I spent more time to prepare other project for uni.
Now I’m considering about the music and theme. I’ll take video tomorrow night.
On Monday, I started to make garment. Firstly, I made basic form of shirt and I made some small cushion. And put them on a right sleeve. It was so annoyed work. I only used calico to do this, so I don’t like the colour and texture. I think if I want to finish this on time, I have to skip many step of process. So I’m considering to skip some part of process.
Today we had a second group presentation. But I got stuck again this day so I didn’t have much things to show in presentation. Even I don’t know what is going on my sketchbook. I try to drape in other way, I really don’t know what should I do now.
At this day, I tried to think other way. I got an idea from shape of muscle and fat. And I searched some photos from artist collection. During drew them, I realised their’s shape are similar with bubble so I tried to connect them.
Today, I thought about the shape of whom movement of my research. I drew lines along the each point of my research. I thought everything was going to right way, but I got terrible stuck. And I wasted rest of this day. I tried to think again and again, but nothing was in my head.
“The Turner Prize is awarded to a British artist under 50 for an outstanding exhibition or other presentation of their work in the preceding year.
Every other year, the prize leaves Tate Britain and is presented at a venue outside London. For 2015, that venue will be Tramway in Glasgow, an international art-space renowned for commissioning, producing and presenting contemporary arts projects.(-tramway.org”)

1995: Damien Hirst
The famed and polarizing British artist won the award for Mother and Child Divided, a sculpture featuring a (real) cow and calf, preserved and cut in half. Hirst, best known for preserving a 17-ft. (5 m) tiger shark in formaldehyde, had been nominated for the prize in 1992.
The Turner Prize was created in 1984 to celebrate contemporary art. It is named after British artist J.M.W. Turner, who painted in the 18th and 19th centuries and whose work was considered controversial by his peers. (-content.time.com”)
Tracey Emin was nominated for her exhibitions in New York and Japan in which she continued to show her versatility across a wide range of media, her vibrancy and flair for self-expression.

At the last day of this week, we had a group presentation. It was good time for me. Tutors gave me some advice and I could get ideas from other student’s work. Based on that I’m going to plan next work.
Before that I got some secondary research from fashion show and fashion film. The first thing is a part of fashion show which is a dancer is dancing. It was quite helpful research. And the other thing is a short video clip. In the video a man fall down and rise up over and over again. During this performing, I could see the natural movement of his hair and dress.
