To begin my Family project I took portraits of myself, my sister, my parents and my dad’s parents. I was looking at family resemblance and then discovered Ulric Collette‘s Genetic Portraits and I wanted to try out this technique.
It’s actually really interesting – I discovered ways that I am similar to some of my family members that I never realised before.
I also looked at Mike Mike‘s ‘The Face of Tomorrow’. This combines the faces into one. Check out his work and you can contribute to it.

In college we have been given a fantastic opportunity! Tracey Moberly has invited us all to take part in the Family Matters: LABEL exhibition in the Tate in London. Tracey Moberly is an interdisciplinary artist who is creating an exhibition installation titled LABEL – ‘Family Old, Family New… Who am I?’. Her work is based around the digital and social networking domains and she is inviting people to contribute.
We are to produce work of any chosen media on the title themes:
1) Family Saturday
2) Self Portrait Profile
3) Old Family Photos
I am unsure of what I would like to do for this project but I think looking at Old Family Photos and researching my family’s past is a great way to start.
These are a few artworks from the Tate collection we have been given to look at for this project:
Ok so I’m almost at the end of my second Human Form project. Can’t believe how fast it goes!
The subject of this project is Human Form Expression. These are some photos I did to express how I felt, what I thought and what I saw when listening to music – 2Cellos -Hurt.
I created these using ink in water. I was fascinated when looking back at my photos at the shapes and images the ink created in the water. What do you see?
