Ian Anderson Workshop

Do something pointless for an hour, document it and then display it.
This was our task set by Ian Anderson for our 2 day workshop. I decided to blow up balloons for an hour as it seemed pretty pointless and in a way balloons are pointless objects in themselves. After 25 mins my finger started bleeding and then i started to get light headed and felt slightly sick. The bottom image represents the feeling of light headedness. The top image represents feeling sick. On the outside the balloons are bright and playful but as you get deeper into it the balloons become dull, and horrible.


These posters are a response to our brief of interpreting the number 100. I based my project on the first 100 days of a new american president which is seen as a major benchmark.
The first poster in the set that explains what the posters are about without giving to much away.

Obama declares a date in which the war in Iraq will end.

Ford pardons ex-president Nixon for his part in the Watergate affair. A move which led to much critisism.

JFK orders the Bay of Pigs invasion which ended in disaster for the United States.

FDR pushed through the Emergency Banking Act, in effect saving thousands of banks from collapsing.

A great quote Socrates. Done in the style of one of my posters for my current project.
