SOWF // Day 4

June 27, 2008

The Girls

Today we had to prepare a presentation and gather information from Ruby, Exyzt and Sara about their job roles. So we could prepare our information and tell our classmates what we have been doing during work experience. Then we watched some music video’s and took ideas to how we’re going to set it out and perform it. We spent some time planning and came up with a concept for the whole dance. we talked about costumes and how we could merge all of our ideas together to make a final show. We learned about animation using a camera by repeatedly clicking the button again and again. I used the animation to walk around the site and up the tower to show the different levels. I found it difficult because I didn’t feel comfortable walking with the camera around the site with one eye on the eye piece and the other eye closed and going up the stairs was difficult because I like to have a hand on the ladder.

Kimber, Belinda and Shay, June 24th

today we came up with a theme for our performance which will be revealed on the day (saturday the 12th july evening). We went around Southwark and took photos of the places we found interesting, including the cemetery we visited on day one: the Cross Bone Graveyard where there are ribbons attached to the main gates of the memorial place. We also visited Mint Street Park where we photographed some local graffiti, and things we found interesting or that we could use for our performance as a background projection of different images. we meet some photographers from “Studio Public” today and they told us about their company and about how they wanted us to take a disposable camera and take pictures of specific items. We spoke about the different ways we could use images in our performance and some of the ways were, projections on us or as the background, images on our tops. We were given the cameras and the log books.

Belinda and Kimber interview Roger Zogolovitch, June 19th

Today we interviewed a variety of people about the southwark lido and their thoughts on it. We first started off by interviewing Roger a co-owner of the land the lido is being built on, and his views and ideas about the project. Then we talked to Nicolas an architect who is involved in building the project, he has also done previous projects like this in different countries over the past five years. Then we did a joint interview with Pat a local resident of southwark who has lived in the area for thirty six years, with Abbeygail a youth worker who runs ‘se1united’ a project for youths. Also they recently got funded a hundred thousand pounds. We had to do a podcast of all their interviews and put it together as a short radio interview. This was very interesting to here all there different views from all different people living in the southwark borough. We interviewed some locals, and they really thought it was a positive thing for southwark to be holding an event like this as it would bring the community together.

SOWF // day 1

June 17, 2008

today we came together and discussed and showed each other our most valuable objects, and also said a fact about southwark. We then watched a short episode of “City of Men” that showed Brazil in the last few years, in the slum areas. And some of the activities the kids go through on a day to day basis. we also visted the construction site after the second day of building and it is coming along very fast and should be done very soon. it’s showing great potential already and i’m very excited about what is to come. We took turns filming each other and the site. i found filming when a train goes past really difficult but it was so much fun. the cemetery (the Cross Bones Graveyard on Redcross Way) was inspiring – the way it was remembered by people who made it their history, even though there is no personal connection, and all the colourful ribbons were beautiful. one way that we could work round the noise of the train is that every time one goes past we make a freeze frame and make it part of the show.
