Experiment In Analogue Sequences, 2012

Animated instant photography.

This particular experiment that I tried quite a while back was a pretty long-winded one, but a recent reblog drew my attention back to it. In hindsight it really did work. The crossover between my use of instant photography to document my experiences combined with my love for the low-fi GIF animation format made for an interesting effect. Maybe I need to revisit the idea?

On Thursday we hopped on a free ferry that took us out of the centre of Amsterdam to the NDSM-Werf, home of the ‘Nederlandsche Dok en Scheepsbouw Maatschappij’, or ‘Netherlands Shipbuilding Company’. There we found the huge abandonned warehouse, revived in the form of a thriving arts community. Tens of shipping container units converted into bustling studios alive with creativity. Artworks such as junk sculptures, various examples of wall art and other experimental ideas in progress populated the outer spaces of NDSM, making the once derelict factory a real golden find for us this week.

Thursday 3 April, 2014

This is the first time I’ve been to Amsterdam, or the Netherlands for that matter, and I’ve been casually capturing things that have stood out to me in the last few days.

My favourite aspect of the city has to be its canals. They’re such a refreshing sight. The weather has been on our sides too, so walking around the city and exploring has been really pleasant.

We have visited a few galleries and museums, most notably the Stedelijk Museum, which held some wonderful examples of modern art; Jean Debuffet, Piet Mondriaan, Jackson Pollock, Marlow Moss, Irma Boom, Andy Warhol, Robert Ryman, Robert Rauchenberg, DeKooning just to name a few. There was also a standout installation by artist Marcel Wanders entitled Moooi. A bizarre and completely immersive, almost alien environment with many ornately decorated objects rendered uncanny by unusual proportions and scale.

I will update my contextualisation blog soon with some more in-depth writing about the works we saw.
