This work explored the themes of surrealism and fantasy by brainstorming concepts that would not have been possible in the ‘real world’.
I used text and a mindmap to explore my ideas, this was the simplest way for me to progress my concepts before I begin experimenting with imagery and the visual aspects of my ideas.
My work could be compared to concepts in TV shows like Bojack Horseman, produced by Raphael Bob-Waksberg in 2014 and The Mighty Boosh, directed by Paul King in 2004, where bizarre situations are often taking place. I hope to take inspiration from the humour in these works and emulate the outlandish and surreal themes.
As this has been the beginning of my practice, there are limited areas to make reflection upon. However, by recreating the exercise we were given in class, and taking more time to complete it, I believe I have created a good foundation for my future work in this course. I am excited to gain additional feedback from my tutors and peers.
