Spectrum a Photographic Exhibition

Another cool Exhibition ...

SPECTRUM – a photographic exhibition

Dates: May 17th – 22nd Location:
Farnham Library
Vernon House
28 West Street
Farnham, Surrey

Admission: Free The Spectrum Group is proud to present – SPECTRUM - a photographic exhibition event dedicated to the joy of colour, May 17th – 22nd. The exhibition will be based on the creative outcome of six photographers and their exploration of colour. Each photographer will create a piece of art dominated by the colour chosen, and a creative obsession will grow within this colourful event.

We wish to invite the public to an exhibition based around a playful, yet challenging concept, which will engage our visitors and reach out to a new audience. Converting the project into six equal panels, the exhibition venue will transform into a giant colour wheel room, consisting of a large quantity of images produced by each of the six members of The Spectrum Group; Matthew White, Charlotte Wormley-Healing, Bim Hjortronsteen, Amy Stringer, Roisin Fitzgerald and Kylee Medcaff - all students at the BA Photography course led by Stephen Bull and prof. Anna Fox at University of the Creative Arts.

My Alice or Your Alice?

Alice in Wonderland is unquestionably a fantasy story, full of fairy tale and imagination. Carroll insists on a philosophy that reality is merely a personal construction, where everyone’s reality is different, and it is essentially, all in our minds.

As readers, we are encouraged to make our own assumptions and interpretations about what we are reading. Carroll offers very little in the way of any descriptions, of either characters or situations. The descriptions in the text are just enough to reinforce the story, but vague enough that the reader can let their imagination run wild.

So why is it, that almost everyone would describe Alice as a blonde little Victorian girl in a blue dress?

While many would argue that John Tenniel’s illustrations are second to none, and work with Carroll’s words to form one of the best collaborations in children’s literature. I would like to suggest that maybe they are not so brilliant. As drawings, they are beautiful, but they do leave every reader with the same visual interpretation of the characters. Leaving very little room for imagination.

Maybe Carroll thought it necessary to follow the convention that seems to state that all children’s books must be illustrated. Or maybe it was the idea that in a story requiring so much imagination, just to follow the plot, allowing readers to conjure up their own visual ideas as well, is a step to far.

I must confess, that to me, the first image of Alice I think of is not that of Tenniel’s illustrations. As a child of the 90’s, I instantly think of the animated little girl from Walt Disney’s heart-warming version of the story. But even that interpretation, has clearly been derived from Tenniel’s illustrations.

Perhaps more recently, in Tim Burton’s version, the characters are a bit different, a bit more sombre and unique. But if you really think about it, they owe a lot to the original illustrations too.

To be perfectly honest, the more I think about it, the more I am left wishing I could go back to my childhood, before I ever encountered anyone else’s Alice’s, and read the story with no pictures. See what my own imagination could come up with, when left totally to it’s own devices. I think everyone should be allowed that chance to create his or her own Alice. If Alice is allowed to journey through Wonderland making her own assumptions about the people and characters she meets, why couldn’t we be given the same luxury?

Max's Blog for YEAH

Max Thought he would do us a post for a blog.. Here it is -

Max’s YEAH Blog

Grandmas are exciting people. No doubt about that. Sure, you get the odd grumpy grandma that tell young bucks to tuck their shirts, but even that gives them an edge that all you young arty hipster types just don’t have. My Grandma isn’t a Granny, or a Nan; she is a full blown, eccentric power-house of a Grandma. I love her. We write to each other quite a bit, it’s a little bit of old school, a whole load of amazing. When he was alive my Grandfather would send me newspaper clippings and National Geographic magazines, just what every young whippersnapper needs. Grandma keeps up the tradition; big brown envelopes, dentist stickers on the front and a whole load of surprises inside. Just like this blog (Yes Errey, I am going somewhere with this). This is my homage to Grandma.


We are always ALWAYS working hard at YEAH
This is us working and being creative in the sunshine on a Friday afternoon...

We would like to thank Max Catterall for all the help he has given us this week.

OutsideIN 'Shop'

OutsideIN 'Shop'
Friday 30th April – Monday 3rd May 2010


Burlington Arcade, Old Christchurch road, Bournemouth, BH1 2HZ

‘Shop’ is an interactive, performance artwork, set within an empty shop space in Bournemouth town centre. They have designed and made hundreds of fake products from cardboard to create a fully immersive and engaging fake shop.
Members of the collective will be on hand to explain the project and encourage visitors to engage with the performance as if it were a real shop. Visitors to ‘Shop’ will see a whole shop made from recycled cardboard. All the products lining the shelves will be handmade works of art with<>
Why are they doing it? In the current financial climate, shops across the country are going out of business, often left for an indeterminate amount of time as empty, tatty shells. Reflecting badly on the local area.

OutsideIN have come up with an innovative way of using these spaces to benefit their local community. 'Shop' is Art with a social conscience. The event is made using recycled material sourced from the waste of our commercial high streets. Then transformed into objects, which question our role as consumers and encourage discussion on our shopping obsessed culture.

On the last day of the event, from 4pm onwards Monday 3rd May 2010, there will be an open discussion, in which members of the public can talk with local officials and artists about the cultural and commercial future of the high street.
“When a person comes into ‘Shop’ and takes home a free cardboard product, maybe they’ll see it as something that questions the difference between what we are being sold and what we actually get as a consumer. Maybe not, but I’ll be happy if they’ve just had some fun.” Fred Nicholas, Artist, OutsideIN Creative Collective.

The event takes place at a time when Bournemouth is buzzing with creativity. Bournemouth is celebrating its Bicentenary and 'The lower gardens' event (held by AUCB Fine Art). 'Shop' is a great example of the growing creative atmosphere in the Bournemouth area.

Cannes Film Fest Review

For YM006 Festivals our resident Film Reviewer has written a piece on Cannes Film Festival.
To link that he is doing some reviews of films connected to the festivals for the blog..
Enjoy =)

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009)

“Unmissable” – Jonathan Ross, Film 2009
“Magical” – Grazia
“Superb” – News of the World
Directed and Written by Terry Gilliam
Cast: Heath Ledger, Lily Cole, Christopher Plummer, Tom Waits, Verne Troyer, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, Jude Law.
Screened at Cannes Film Festival 2009 – Out of Competition
Rated 12

If you haven’t heard of Terry Gilliam in your sad or lonely life, then you must have been living under a rock or inside of a very rotund biscuit barrel. You think that my sentence was quite odd don’t you? Well, in the world of Mr. Gilliam this is quite normal. None of his work has been really sensible or down to Earth, which it shouldn’t be. Nothing wrong with being outside the box, as long as you don’t try to eat your way back in.

Gilliam is known best for his basic but legendary animation skills for the British phenomenon known as “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” (1969-1974). His simple way of doing things turned into comic genius, a motorised pram that ate people wasn’t exactly normal was it? Later he went back to help his fellow Pythons with the films “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” (1975), “Monty Python’s Life of Brian” (1979) & “Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life” (1983). He has also directed solo works including “Time Bandits” (1981), “Brazil” (1985) & “12 Monkeys” (1995). Known for his quirky style, his latest feature film, “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” (2009) which was released on DVD and Blu-Ray March 29th 2010, was expected to deliver a gravy boat of whimsical sturdiness.

Dr. Parnassus (Christopher Plummer) and his Daughter, Valentina (Lily Cole) run a travelling stage show offering punters the chance of a lifetime, to go through the mirror into The Imaginarium, A place where your own imagination creates the world. When they accidentally stumble upon a man hanging from a bridge (Heath Ledger) and save his life, he joins them turns their theatre troupe into a thriving business. But when an old friend of Dr. Parnassus turns up, Mr. Nick (Tom Waits), a wager is made that and Valentina is the Prize.

Firstly, what a fantastic cast this film has. Good work Casting person whose name I don’t have hand at this very moment. Well done. Christopher Plummer has done some great acting in his time, a true great. He portrays Parnassus perfectly with wisdom pouring out of every wrinkled crease. As a friend of mine was very happy to point out, Tom Waits is also in this movie. He has done a bit of acting in the past but is better known for his music, he is described as “one of the last beatniks in contemporary music”. He can certainly move like the Devil should. Happily by all my counts, Lily Cole gives a fantastic performance as Parnassus’s Daughter Valentina. Put a ginger haired angel in a film and I’ll give it a watch. Happily for all those who aren’t into the ginge as much as I am, her acting should be noted. Hopefully more roles will be coming her way in time.

With the sad passing of Heath Ledger, the film almost never got made. It’s quite hard to make a film if you haven’t got the leading star. Thanks to Heath’s friends and a quick re-write, Johnny Depp, Jude Law & Colin Farrell stepped in to play Heath’s character Tony when in the Imaginarium, each time donning a different face as he goes through the mirror. Luckily, Heath had filmed all the non green screen work before his passing, taking all his hard work out would have been disrespectful. The film is a fitting tribute to a great man, and an even better actor.

“The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” is a great film. It won’t be everybody’s cup of tea, for a fantasy film it is very complex. Don’t concentrate and the story will run away from you. To get the full benefit from this film, you will need to see it on Blu-Ray. There’s a lot of Detail to behold, it is certainly one of the most beautiful movies I’ve ever seen. A pure HD delight.

The only thing that could have made the film better was if there was a cameo from one of Gilliam’s Python friends. John Cleese would have fit in well inside the Imaginarium. What do you think?

Warning: Contains infrequent strong Language, sex references & (I can’t believe this is on the back of the DVD cover) Smoking throughout.

We have been working hard here at YEAH


Sorry for the bit of radio silence here on the Blog!!
We have slapped our wrists about it.
So sorry sorry!

We have been very busy at YEAH HQ. Over the last week we have been involved with a lot of networking for the mag, meeting a lot of interesting people that all have been very helpful to the YEAH project.

We have now been set up on a system that enables us to work on the magazine anywhere in the world, all we need is a internet connection. This means that when the YEAH Editors, Errey and Stevie are working apart (which often happens) they can still work on the magazine. BRILLIANT. This will completely revolutionise the way magazine evolves over the creative process, its all very exciting.

The system is brilliant and its gratefully received seeing that its only two weeks left till YM006 goes to the printers!!!

A lot of work has also been going on the business structure of YEAH, both editors are from a creative background, so the business side of things have been new to them. YEAH has received so much help and advice to enable us to grow. We would especially like to thank Jools Chaffer from Dizzy -support 4 diabetes and Steve Cusack from CAM for their help and advice, Steve has agreed to be Errey's business mentor which will be so beneficial to the project! Steve - Thank you!!!

Things are full speed ahead at YEAH - The next few issues are going to be revolutionary for us. Thank you all for your support and please keep supporting us through the up and coming months.

We promise that the Blog will be more active!

thanks YEAH

Just to prove we havent been too serious recently.. here is Stevie doing her Johan impression!

A YEAH One Off Piece. Updated.

This piece is a personal collaboration with YEAH Magazine, and will form the practical resolution for my final year degree project.

In line with YEAH, the piece will be theme based, in this case, exploring peoples responses to their favourite children’s book. I have been asking contributors to respond; in whatever manner they choose, to a book from their childhood. I have asked them to think about what memories they have of the book, how it made and still makes them feel, and what it means to them.

Although it is a magazine collaboration project, I am reluctant to call it a magazine. The final format is still a work in progress at this stage, originally I envisaged it sitting somewhere between a magazine and an artists book. However, the more the project progresses, the more reluctant I am to bind it.

In a project so heavily built around the concept of childhood, I thought it important to ask people what childhood means to them. The response I got built up a picture of childhood as a time when there is nothing to worry about, when you are free, with no cares or worries. It’s exciting and beautiful, a time for innocence and adventure. It’s about exploring, interacting and learning.

I want these elements to be reflected in my piece. I have begun to think that to bind this project, to give it a rigid ‘magazine’ form, would limit the adventure. The reader wouldn’t get enough of a sense of exploration and excitement.

From the projects I have been researching, I have decided that I want the readers or viewers of this piece to be able to interact with what they see. They need to feel it, smell it and most importantly, experience it.

The way my ideas are going at the moment, the piece may take the form of a sort of ‘box of goodies’. As a child myself, I would collect things in a shoebox. I collected letters, photographs, shells, leaves, and pretty much anything else I found and was fascinated by.

Maybe the piece will be a box crammed full of postcard images, miniature books, toys and things to evoke memories.

At the moment I am still gathering contributions, and beginning to piece them together. One of the biggest issues I face is authorship. This seems to be a recurring theme in a lot of my projects recently.

On a photography course, where my projects include no photographs of my own. Where do I stand? How do I make the work my own?

I have thought about including my own photographs in this piece. To be perfectly honest, I don’t want to. Somehow, I don’t think it fits, I don’t think it would be right.

I think this is a curation piece, about how I bring together the work I have collected, commissioned or sourced. My work is to curate, to bring together and to present the work.

So, that’s where I am at the moment. Who knows where it will end. My only constraint is time, the downfall of it being tied to my degree.
