As you walk to the “sweet spot” of this room the circles come into alignment. From other angles the circles look like shapes as they are spaced across the room.

As you travel away from the first room, the perspective of the shapes change.

Accidental shots are the best, I saw many shots took them, then tried to rework them for a “real” composition, but the first shots were all the best—where I pointed and shot.

Walking from our new “classroom” to our Art House!

Image

We are all about to experience, for the first time for each of us, the interior of the house. Who knows what we are going to find!

Image

Thankfully, the house was not a disaster just in a bit of disarray.

2nd room from before, we found a wedding dress with a train in the closet off to the left side of this frame, we hope to incorporate it into the finished product.
The door on the left, where the light emanates from, is the bathroom, two closets are positioned behind the door.

This image reminds me of the experience we shared as we entered. My classmates, professor, and I all went urban exploring (with permission of course) in our “new house”. One themes we pulled from our initial experience was that of wonder and finding out the unknown, much like when we were children and everything was new and full of unexplored territory. We want to integrate this idea into the house for sure: giving people an experience that they will remember in a positive, or at least not negative, light.

We began cleaning out the house Saturday morning, May 17th 2014. After less than an hour, the 10 of us had the house empty and organized. Then we met to discuss what we were going to do with the interior space. We brainstormed and landed on a few common ideas we wanted to pursue. For our next class we will have sketches and proposals for how we are going to execute our designs (DES9s).

This was the 2nd in person meeting with Vanessa. The first time we met was to plan for this shoot.
She was amazing as a photographer, absolutely driven. She spent half an hour cleaning a location in this abandoned house for our shoot. Kudos!

I can’t wait to work with and hang out with this amazing person again.

Cheers!
