Margate Pushing Print Festival
Gocco Print Workshop with Xtina Lamb
I conducted the experiment using a range of liquids with different densities and measured them by how many drops per 60 seconds they formed and the shape in which they formed then repeated the experiment heating each liquid up for 30 seconds.
I decided the best way to present the results would be in the form of a book and chose to make a do si do style book. This would allow me to separate the room temperature and heated results in a more obvious way.
I took my inspiration from the pitch drop experiment taken out by Professor Thomas Parnell of the University of Queensland which measured the viscosity of Bitumen tar.
I decided to combine both the measurement (Develop your own system of units and use it to measure and structure the world around you.
) and instrument (Develop your own instrument and use it to acquire knowledge about your world) brief in my project and come up with my own experiment measuring the viscosity of different liquids using an instrument i built myself.

Invisible Structures Exhibition
In this project, we want you to explore the invisible world of science that has become so important for our understanding of the world that we simply cannot live without it anymore. By learning some basic tools for approaching scientific knowledge, you will be able to take the scientist’s perspective onto this world and find new and different ways of looking at it. We want you to enter into a dia- logue with this perspective and respond to the question: how can the invisible world of science be visualised?
I re-designed my newspaper headline poster by using different fur and shaving it more on different words ending with a shaved texture image i found. I photographed the whole poster rather than digitaly creating it.

4. Create a poster from the first line of a book.
'We have come a long way in our understanding of animals in recent years. '
(The Cat Whisperer- Claire Bessant)
I also read the instruction in a different way and litrally made the image out of the first line of the book.
3. Create a poster from a piece of advice that someone once gave you
Think of the glass as half full not half empty.
2. Create a poster from a line of a poem
I thought as Burns night is coming up i should take a line from Robert Burns.
'Address to a Haggis'
I chose the line ‘but if you wish her greatful prayer, give her a Haggis’
I decided an image of a haggis was enough to get the message across that in my opinion a haggis is not exactly a brilliant gift to recive but the way it is put across in the poem is the compleate opposite!
A Poster a Day
We have been asked to design and produce a poster a day for the next two weeks.
All posters should be A2 portrait (594 x 420 mm)
The posters will have a typographical emphasis, however we should use image as you see fit.
PROJECT WITH SAM WINSTON | PART 5
‘There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.’
Ella and I chose to take the book further, feedback from the crit said that for the book to work best it must look like a book taken off a shelf from a library.
These are some mock ups for design possibilities to make the book look older and more official.
Megan came up with an idea of a book which comes across normal but infact has nothing inside making it ‘unreadable’.
We decided to carry on this idea.
