We took care to create images related to the theme "school of the future" and, more specifically, on the spaces that will occupy the new generations. Through the technique of photography, using an infrared filter, we took more than a hundred images depicting different buildings on the territory, the filter has allowed us to give an unreal and futuristic atmosphere. We favored buildings that had certain characteristics such as: external structure consists mainly of cement, without any decoration, geometric architectural elements, buildings related to the world of the school.
For the fashion theme we inspired to a positive vision of the future, a world governed by a greater sense of freedom: the spaces are used with greater creativity without the constraint of gravity, and the human being can exploit every angle of the places in which he lives. Even the clothes express a sense of freedom, as are unisex, so separable and combined to suit all needs. We have always tried to capture a kind of subtle and silent communication that develops between the characters of our photos, as if in a futuristic world communications could also become telepathic and not just verbal.
We took care of developing photographs in the darkroom, producing picture by following some specific issues that have emerged during the week. We worked in a small room with dark walls, a red light lamp to avoid damaging photo papers, three basins containing liquids that allowed the development of frames, and all objects for image composition. At first we tried to learn and master the best technique and choose the objects. In the following days, thanks to the test material realized, we have identified three themes: space, x-rays and the environment. In total we have more than 300 product images, using objects and lights of any kind.
We received the task of creating new and original compositions with something already composed. We concentrated on reworking the image more precisely the class, with a futuristic key and especially the experimental group, to recreate these images we used various techniques ranging from crayons, overlays of various ripped and damaged images, and the use of water, we experienced a lot of materials and made decisions about which of the footage used, to reach a very original and satisfying result for us.
The theme that I and my companions have treated was the Tribe. When you think of the tribes, you think of a group of people united by something as a sign or symbol, and to an authority figure, wise and important as the leader / boss. On this basis, taking into account the macro theme "School of the Future," we tried to realize photo shoots in which the tribe is represented by a groups of students who are around their "Queen", not forgetting to include them in school environments.
In our group we had the task to resume the course of the workshops of the various groups collecting as much material as possible, it has not been very easy to resume the various groups because some of them were far apart, and this involved accountable lost time to go to these places, so we split and throughout the week we collected a lot of video material that subsequently we reworked mounted and then created a trailer.
