About Me

My photo
hi! my name is kirsty gilliburn and i am a student at manchester school of art studying Design and Art Direction. Sometimes my mind runs off on a tangent and i imagine myself sat in a Vogue office wearing head to toe chanel, the new anna wintour. A girl can dream.

So i don't very often blog about what i'm doing workwise, which considering that's what i'm really supposed to blog about here goes...

i am currently working on a brief for an exhibition to be held at noiselab in manchester over the easter holidays. the theme is "Panic"

working with my friend sarah we have based our piece around the idea of people panicking about being alone, doing certain task's alone and ending up alone in life. we took photographs of 3 different scenarios, walking alone, being in the house alone and finally being alone in life without a partner.

using photoshop to blur the image and adjust colours so that the subject of the images was kept in focus and in full colour as if she is so panicked about being alone that nothing is in focus anymore and the colour has completely drained from everything around her. the blurring also emphasises the idea of panic.

this is an A1 poster that will be shown in the exhibition.

if you feel like visiting it will be held at noiselab on market street, manchester from 30th march until 3rd of april and the exhibit is open 12 - 8

but if you can't make it here is a glance of what we did...
