Instagram Placement Test
Unfortunalty due to Covid-19 I have been unable to get into the local archive to get good quality digital copies of the original images. However, I have included the watermarked versions from the archives website. The water marked images can be replaced with good quality copies before release. I would like to release this in the run up to the release of the film and as a counterpart piece to the film. I think it conveys a narrative that partnered with the film could add an interesting dynamic to my folio as well as some traction to the viewing of the film.
I am really happy how this transitions onto the platform and I feel it has a strong easily conveyable narrative. Instagram's marking on the timeline, where multi add is being used, is also a useful aid to usability.
I am really happy about how it looks as a whole. The use of white space gives breathing room to the subject. With the designs functionality really drawing from the original styles I looked at. I made the choice to showcase the photographs by not over designing the layout so that the narrative and the story becomes the main feature. I also included the use of text styles determined earlier in MA Creative practice through the Materials and Processes unit, so as to keep continuity with the project as a whole.
Description for Instagram Caption
The "Castle Craigs" is a heritage walk that's observed by the community of Eskdale all year round. It's also a community event that is ridden and walked as a notable part of Langholm Common Riding each July. The event will not taking place due to Covid-19, a first since it's inception in 1759. Given this absence and the current constraints on social gatherings I wanted to explore the communities relationship with the journey. Using a collection of archive material and personal photography taken whilst on the walk, I hope to communicate the experiences through contemporary technology.
Project Proposal - Eskdale Walks
Throughout the first trimester of MA Creative Practice I began works exploring culture in and around Eskdale, Scotland. This exploration took place not only thematically but began to push the visual style and story telling of the project, along with exploring the use of curation within work and the placement of the works both digitally and physically. I wish to use Creative Practice CRPR7002 to develop a further look at placement digitally and physically, considering career trajectories that fit within my practice, alongside polishing stylistic and working practices moving towards MA Final Project focused around culture within Eskdale.
To enable me to do this I would like to create
This would be supported by exploring the digital placement of work. As well as building on the learnings of the previous trimester pushing style and developing on reportage approach through documentation and reflection.
Aims & objectives
Overall I wish this project to enable me to work towards my MA Final Project alongside being applicable towards my professional skill set and career trajectory. This will be underpinned by;
