MA in Photography, Falmouth University, Module 3, Surfaces and Strategies, Week 4
Two very contrasting surfaces for work.
Anthony Luvera’s practice, centred on collaboration (see previous post) resulted in a free newspaper in the case of his Brighton based project, Not Going Shopping, I obtained a copy, fig 1 & 2, it contains his collaborators’ images but also extensive text taken from the project Facebook group and blog posts, thus combining media in an engaging read.

I have posted before about the proposal I have made to create a fixed digital screen in the public realm in Birmingham (a surface of a distinct type – requiring several years of curation as part of the plan). There has been a small step forward in that I have uncovered a store (fig 3 & 4) holding numerous stands by Standard8 (http://www.standard8.com/) I have made a proposal to the main sponsors that we use a small number of these as an interim photo project in the allotted city Square and allow this to promote the location for potential additional funders. The content is likely to be a selection of images from the South Asian show due to start at the Library of Birmingham in August 2017 (a new partner to the project).
