Photography and Frame

Forms of Living

Human actions subconsciously affected by the environment

My chosen farming of this image depicts how the environment is designed in way that expresses how it should be used though showing the environment with people using the facility. Following Julius Shulman’s way of photography, the photo has two key elements, being the people using the facility and the design of the facility itself. The design of the facility shows how it should be used to suit and the people to reinforce the idea. The photo shows that the environment created is a social, relaxing and convenient area for study and research while having breaks to eat, drink and socialise with others.

The environment is created thought the light atmosphere made across the architect’s design as a place that wouldn’t be as quiet and tense as a classroom but rather with open space to work at one’s own pace. It has been designed to have no central focus where attention is spread out towards one another to create the light atmosphere. This photograph is one of many photographs showing how an architect can design such a space for humans to react to the environment and act based on the created space.

Film and Film Links

My one minute film has three particular sections that has to be brought to attention, the opening, the full turn and the ending. What was used as the recording device was a Samsung Galaxy S5 as I was able to change the quality to what suited best along with a great sound recorder which is core to making the film. The film is using POV (point of view) to express the experience as if viewer were in the film to actually be the character.

Choice of what to do and reasoning was difficult as it had to meaningful towards a solid reason and unlike Enter the Void (Noe, 2010) which showed a reflection in the bathroom, I decided to step outside of the building after waking up instead of washing up. This along with the three important sections, shares a particular goal as said in the film twice, “let’s get out of here” expressing that the character wants to leave the area and go towards the outside. The “outside” is expressed as freedom towards a large open space as how architecture has been used to build the particular kind of space.
