A photograph using the philosophical idea of ‘Solipsism’ to comment on the idea of ‘house’. A theory which revolves around the idea of the singular mind existing all on its own and that everything around it, absolutely everything, is created by it.

My view of this theory is of it being very egotistical and a somewhat ignorant view on how we exist. So then I came up with an idea of taking a photograph of the said mind, only possible via some sort of physical representation, realising that this would in itself be and argument against the idea as a camera has to exist outside of the mind to take a picture of it. I then took a picture of the camera I had used to take the original photograph. This second image would then show a physical object, the first camera, housing and argument against the theory of solipsism. This argument being the undeveloped picture of the mind. The argument only being valid if the original picture remains undeveloped, as the idea of an argument against solipsism is possible but an actual one isn’t.


'Shop' was simply the brief that we were given, and along with the brief we were given two words as 'inspiration' and ours were 'sweatshop' and 'thrift'.
The fact that our final outcome was based on was that the average pay for a sweatshop worker in India is 10p/item. So we set about setting up our own sweatshop, spending as little money as possible. Over the course of 3 days (or 36 hours) we succeeded in reaching our target of 300 10p cushions.
A short film was recorded over the three days and it was shown along with the sweatshop itself, wreaking of secondhand clothes and spray paint.
A smaller version of this piece was later shown and the KK outlet gallery.

Recreating the a tall tail of our choosing. We focused on the story of 'Augustus Gloop' in the story of charlie and the chocolate factory.


We were asked by the brief to comment on the theoretical north/south divide in Britain. As a group we quickly started searching for a fact to base our project on and came across a study that revealed that the pace of life the the south of the country was considerably higher than in the north. This in itself may not be surprising, however this faster pace of life has resulted in a significantly rise in the rate of stress complaints and even heart trouble. So we set about physically trying to slow southerners, pin pointing londoners, down by creating office attire that forced them to slow down there pace of life.
A fashion shoot later came of this, and a 'lookbook' will follow on the near future.

'I want you to picture a bullet inside your head'

A typography project labeled 'Chattermat'. The theme me and tony chose was that of 'ambiguity'. The quote was chose from kiss kiss bang bang was ambiguous however overall I think we shot well wide of the ambiguity mark. However I am pleased with the way the layouts came out so thought I would put it up here anyway.


Photography project asking us to describe/portray a word of our choosing without using the word itself. After choosing the word 'reign' I set about looking at architectural photography, I drew a lot of influence form the very string line and angles and wanted to incorporate this into my work. The overall feeling I tried to achieve was one of strength, foundation, solidity and prominence.
