Jeremy Hutchison: Objectless Expansion

Cyan blue is the colour chosen by numerous social media platforms such as Skype, Twitter, Vimeo and Dropbox. Its a neutral colour which connotes freedom.

Hutchison painted his empty exhibition space cyan blue and placed only a plasma tv screen in one room. The screen is projecting a digital tour of the space. The soundtrack is the voice of a man found on Skype by Hutchison describing his room in Beijing in minute detail. Hutchison found the man by his Skype username having the word "Cyan" in.

I organised my photos from across my childhood years into their seasons to create the narrative of a year-long photo album. I found it interesting when looking at my photos at the pattern of how I have so many more photos for the winter period because that is when we would visit my grandma, the main family photographer. Its a pattern that I predict many other family archives will have since this is a holiday season..

I find myself unconsciously looking at the same buildings and architecture every day on the way to uni, something I only properly realised when considering this project; the daily construction tells the story of the continuous growth of the city, the consistently and eerily empty foyer of an unknown building keeps the peace; the landmarks tell me I'm about to reach the campus. All of these tie together to make my mornings and as seemingly ordinary and unimportant they might seem I would not have the same experience without them; I feel part of the city somehow for knowing these places.

For this task I knew who I wanted to talk to. There is a shop in Fargo which holds a treasure trove of objects and trinkets for sale which I love to go into. The man who owns the shop is called Ronnie and I've always been intrigued by the person who has collected all these objects to then sell. I've just never been confident enough to talk to him. So with the excuse of this task I recorded what ended up being a twenty minute conversation with him (I was only intending to record me buying this mirror but I forgot my purse so the conversation got much extended). Rather than taking a photo of Ronnie himself I decided to take a photo of the mirror that I was buying which sparked the conversation.

I really enjoyed my conversation with him because he is a very interesting man who can just talk and talk which was wonderful. I learnt about his love of old objects, his family, his previous jobs; it was a great experience.

- For the video the beginning is a bit crackly but if you skip to around 3 minutes the sound levels out -

For this self portrait I chose to represent myself with where I sit in my house. For almost every room I have a place where I like to sit, for example my seat at the dining room table, the sofa in the living room or the window sill in my bedroom. I feel they represent a part of who I am because the places are a constant in my life and make me feel content.

Martin Parr's The Rhubarb Triangle & Other Stories at the Hepworth gallery in Wakefield.

The largest collection of his work exhibited since 2002, the main set of photos was his series following the rhubarb industry and those who have to grow forced rhubarb.

My sister is a student at the Royal Ballet School and since year 7 she has been boarding in London. This means that when she is away communications can fade as she improves on her profession, however whenever we are back together we are very close sisters. To communicate this I chose to correctly expose her when she is close to show our normal relationship when she's at home and then I increased the exposure, causing her to fade into the sheet which represents the school and her aspirational stage. I chose to create a gif in order to show the sequence of her moving away into her professional environment as it is an effective way to communicate the two relationships we have together.

This looks like it should be a good book if you want to learn about how the body has been photographed in the past up until 1995 . Currently not available in the library but the entire thing is online via the link

A really good article if you are looking for more photographers who have used the body, predominantly their own, to spark more research for Picbod

I wanted to find out how Christina sees the world without glasses so i asked her to manually focus the camera to how everything looks when she doesn't wear them. She then photographed me. Whilst she is not physically visible in the photo, the camera lens is acting as her eyes and therefore she is.
