Homework: THE WORD

For this assignment we where instructed to take our word (tiny) and go out onto the line and create three different collections based on it. Then we where to create a three dimensional installation in the Cohen studio of one of our three collections. More information on the assignment can be found HERE!

For my first collection I decided to use photography as my means of collecting. For this collection I focused on the tiny’s of the natural world. These photos where all taken with the same zoom and focal point (55mm plus 13mm extension). See examples bellow! Additional images can be found here!

THESE IMAGES WHERE TAKEN WITH “ALL OF THE PIXELS” CLICK ON THEM TO OPEN THEM UP IN A NEW TAB, THEN CLICK AGAIN TO ZOOM!! There is a lot to see in these images and it is really worth taking the time to blow them up!

Next I decided to make a collection of the Tiny’s of the man made world. Again, I decided to use photography as my means of collecting and took them with the same zoom and focal point (55mm plus 13mm extension).

See examples bellow! Additional images can be found here!

Lastly, for my installation, I decided to select a small glass vial, and collect anything that i could fit inside it. This turned into a slightly interesting task because it was teetering between pouring snowing and hailing while I was trying to collect my objects. I did manage, however, to collect a wide assortment of both natural and man made objects from the line. I had decided that i was going to limit myself to 60 vials (the number of corks I had). After bottling and corking each object, I sealed them with wax and stamped each seal with a number, one through sixty. I then created a list of the contents of each vial and set up my installation!
