I split the portfolio into 2 parts, part A is the theme of Light and Shadow and part B is focusing on site. I try to start Part A with a clear statement that my research is about light and shadow, due to my models are framing the story between me and Janet Cardiff. So I mention her as an exercise/ workshop to apply my experiments. Basically saying I did a walk and extract the experience into layers to express the time movement (referring to 1st model), and I framed a scenario by using light and shadow with a light box. The idea of light and shadow contain a few of expressions in it, the contrast of light and darkness, the contrast of seen and unseen and the contrast of present and past/fade out. I hope the way I mention Janet Cardiff as an object to present my theme will not confuse audience that I am doing something with Janet.
a.Research Topic index, what to explore in research
b. the walk, what to focus -> time movement -> 1st model
c. light box (light and shadow, time movement) model -> material test ->layers -> lighting -> final images
d. Resin sets
Part B: site
a. Site map
b. Site intro
c. past and present
f. information to support the concept
I am not sure whether I should put the sketchup lighting test into portfolio since it’s more like exploration study material. Here is what I get so far, the first few page of Part A I still have a bit worry my layout will mislead audience to Janet Cardiff.
