Claire Harvey

photography by Gert Jan van Rooij
Claire Harvey's work consists of solitary figures engaged in day to day activities. It is amazing to see how well she had captured the mood of the subjects in her work considering how small the pieces were. The size, spacing, and subject matter of her work had an amazing ability to block out all the 'noise' of the exhibition.

MSSS’s “Medallic marathon” continues in 2011. Professor Bogomil choose this humorous title for the new 2011 Medal Project. The project consists of seven medallic art sessions – from February to May and from October to December. Although the participants in the project enjoy full freedom of choice of subject, materials and techniques, each session has its own theme, setting a framework of particular universal problems. The idea is for each of the seven medallic sessions, and respectively exhibitions, to have an atmosphere of its own. Furthermore, different approaches to and interpretations of the same subject are of great interest to students. Via: Panayot Panayotov-Paneto (BG)

DigiLomo Camera

The DigiLomo Camera takes lo-fidelity images with lots of blurring, out of focus, shallow depth field and color aberrations/light leaks... but that was the whole purpose on the project. We weren't aiming for megapixel count or image sharpness; what we wanted was a nostalgic feel, almost like a polaroid picture, where you never now what you are going to get.
