Plan ahead for your HOT DATE this TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6TH and GO VOTE! Don’t know your poll site location or hours? Check here.
Please spread the word to your friends — better yet, make it fun! Go together, hang out, celebrate and make your voice heard.  People have fought and died for this power, the right to vote, the ability to effect political and social change. Please don’t waste it!

Project 1: Final proposal

ARTS 290

When Will You Learn?

Diann Bouri

Form: Large scale grayscale prints, colored prints, sharpie, wheat paste.

Content: The black and white background of the Canadian Rockies captures the beauty of Mother Nature, I placed the eyes in the sky of the background and put them in color prints to stand out more against the whites and blacks of the backdrop. The images within the eyes are to narrate the harm of Nuclear Power. I turned the sky red in the left eye that included the power plant to symbolize the doom and destruction of power, and to the right eye I placed two images one of them being the aftermath of the Chernobyl power plants and a elderly women whom was a victim of the explosion. The time and place theme plays in with having documentation of me putting up with work and the images of the nuclear power plant and the aftermath in the right eye.

Process: I first drew out the eyes with sharpie scanned them into the computer I inserted the images into both eyes and edited them with adding layers and mask and playing with the opacity. I took the backdrop image and put into grayscale and cropped them into 9” wide by 21” tall so I could have them blow it up with out losing too much detail in my image I had them printed to be 3’x 7’ on four different sheets. I edited the eyes to be a little more vibrant and so they would have a nice contrast to them against the background. I printed them out to be 36”x 48” I cut out each eye with and x-acto knife. I made the wheat paste and put up my background of this mural up the night before applying the eyes

Group Site Specific Proposal
The site I am proposing to use is an area of waste ground in the middle of a row of terraced houses on Oystermouth Road. The site originally held two larger house, or possibly one big building, which was pulled down to leave the resulting grassy area. The company that owns the site is Gravan Construction Ltd, who can be contacted on01792 791735. The image to the left shows the rough outline of the plot, obviously an older image when the buildings were still in place.
One of the biggest issues with this site concerns health and safety, as it’s effectively a live building site. I’ve considered the options and I think the best way around this would be to introduce a fenced walkway around the site, which would allow the main site to stay intact and retain it’s ‘feeling’ as a derelict area, but still maintain relative safety for the viewer as they move around the area. This could be done with small poles driven into the ground with rope strong along the top of them at waist height. The pathway could then easily be cleared of any sharp or dangerous objects making it safe for the general public. The whole area from the pavement in is one level, but a little rough. This could be an issue for buggies or wheelchair users, but no worse than a normal field, especially as we can route the pathway around the roughest areas.
In terms of location – the spot is very local being a ten minute walk from the bus station, and right on the sea front so would attract a good volume of foot traffic simply going past it on the cycle path. There’s also a major road so if advertised right, commuters and traffic would spot it going past and might come back at a later date to check it out. Power would be an issue, but considering it’s an outside site generally visited in working hours with streetlights nearby, lighting should be more than acceptable and a lack of power will have to simply be a limitation on our work as a part of the space we’re working in.
Thinking about possible ideas for the project, I was came across the idea of possibly a 40’s American styled billboard advertising Swansea sea-front as a tourist destination. This doesn’t tie into the site itself so much, but more the whole street as a whole as roughly 75% of the buildings on Oystermouth Road are Hotels and B&Bs. I’m sure it wouldn’t be too hard to find an old photograph of Oystermouth Road in the 30’s or 40’s and then paint over the top to make it like the style of art used in the old billboards. I could do this in a large scale and put it at the front of the site to draw people into the area without really knowing what it was about. I enjoy working with wood at large scale so I’d really get stuck into this project.
