Phase 3 - Production is resumed

Today we are back on track with the production and it was a productive day at the workshop

2 good news have brighten up our day; the prints are finally ready to be picked up at the architecture block! Our fabric (with 3d illusion) print was also ready; it only needs ironing before we display it!


Our first job was to number and cut out squares again to replace the faulty ones we made earlier. Since this is the 2nd time we are doing this, the production ran smoothly. We were unsure about the use of uhu as we didn’t want to mess the photos up again; in the end, we all agreed on the use of spray mount.


In the afternoon, we split into 2 groups to drill holes onto our squres. Katie, Marta and I have finished drilling all the squares in the afternoon; whilst Rachel and Sammie were trying out connect the squares with wire. We agreed on the use of copper as it is the most malleable metal available at the workshop.

Getting pictures of ‘hipsters’ of the the NQ

Our initial idea was to take pictures of people of the Northern Quarter and to create a mosaic from them. Today, Katie and I were in town to get some pictures done for our work. 

We found it a bit awkward as we had to go up to strangers and ask for their permission to have their photos taken. Our first location was the Afflecks Palace as this is quite a reputable place of where the ‘uniquly dressed’ people would shop. This is the first guy we found and he seemed to be quite flattered to have the photo taken; the only problem was that he sounded foreign (possibly Canadian), which we then think to ourselves if he was the right target as we aimed to get photos of (preferably) locals in the Northern Quarter


We realised that it will be more efficient and possibly a greater variety of people to get photos of passers by; therefore we sat outside a cafe and got our job done for the day. Here are some of the photos we got..
