System Name: Minimal
Group 4 has decided to find our alphabet pieces by capturing everything in our exposure minus nature. We decided to exclude nature because of its complexity and variety of forms. Nature does suit our system name (minimal). Our group focused on simplicity. We captured shapes that are geometric and architectural. As a group we also decided to use capital cased letters for each of our images.
1. We established a rough definitions for our selected categories together before we began to look and capture our images:
Minimal — Basic Fundamental images
Find Architectural/Tools/Electronic objects
2. Each group member had a task to find certain letters/symbols.
The Letters we each have:
-MINIMAL is our category
3. Then we met up as a group and separated our images. Each of us may have captured multiple images of certain letters. Therefore, as a group we decided to choose the best image for our collage. By laying out each images it gave us a chance to see our objects as a whole and arrange them. Some letters/symbols had to be re-captured due to clarity. It also gave us a chance to see which letters/symbols are left to find.
4. After seeing what we had and didn’t have. Our next step was to re-capture the images that was needed. Also to find, as a group, what was missing.
5. Finally we met as a group and made pdf templates of what we found as individuals and what we found as a group.
This project has helped me reunite with the world around me. Through everyday routines we tend to miss what is right in front of us. I found it amazing how everything relates to each other. Such as, alphabets and shapes. I had to train my eyes to familiarize the simplicities used in my everyday life. I found myself constantly looking at objects and recognizing how it was made. I also realized why certain objects were formed in certain ways due to sturdiness. Most geometric shaped images were made for tools or construction. My eyes are intrigued and no I am looking at objects not only for what they are, but how they were transformed in that way.
