Welcome back to another day of updates, which I have to admit are late, as I needed to spend some time formatting or writing up drafts, anywho while contently
stalking looking at my cousin’s posts, I spotted
As I write about this, I can refer this back to what’s been mentioned in CCS. Giving things context, or how the museum has given context to a particular object. I need to always keep this in mind, when I’m observing things in future, other wise, I won’t be able to move forward, or learn how to give my own object or artwork context. I wasn’t able to get a photograph of the, but I did scrawl down a brief draft of what this display looked like.
Speaking of displays and cameras; no one was allowed to take any photographs of the event, but that didn’t stop me from taking a quick shot of one of the signs.
I had set myself a task of documenting as many drawings and notes as possible. I had to keep in mind about how each artist/designer has portrayed a particular character, or scene? how did they do it? what mediums did they use? has the museum/library reflected or help give context to it?
Observing the things they had on display, they had put in some thought by only selecting specific things, or broadcasting it in a form of a timeline of when the pieces were created, for example, they had all of the Disney’s Alice in wonderland things contained in one display, while another illustrated set, or book with some cards or anything related to the one person who designed it was kept in another display.
Looking back on this visit that I made about two weeks ago, I was quite happy with how they presented the lifetime and dedication to this particular tale about a girl. Actually, I’m also quite surprised with how old the story is, and how it’s managed to last this long, if you take in to account that not long ago, they had released an Alice related film in 2013 and now, they’re planning to make another one. It’s pretty much still relevant to our time and can be enjoyed.
