RESEARCH TASK 2.6 ROY’S PEOPLE AND TANAKA TATSUYA

I was inspired by these 2 artists that I found on Instagram. They combine miniature people and other objects to create visual art.

DINOSAURS:

Instead of using miniature people, I thought it would be fun to use small dinosaurs.

I decided to spray paint the dinosaurs silver to create a more striking affect. I thought of different scenes I could set up using these small dinosaurs.

I decided on creating scenes using props:

– Birthday – presents

– Christmas – presents

– Carnival – big wheel

– Cycling – tricycle

– Home – house

– Beach – umbrella’s

I used green plants as a base to arrange the dinosaurs on. I then changed the different props to take pictures.

After printing out the pictures, I added different backgrounds or detail, using collage and doodles.

I decided to add some words/ phrases:

– Happy Birthday!

– Roar!

– You are roar-some!

– You are totally Dino-mite!

– Welcome to the prehistoric age. Happy Birthday!

– I give you my whole heart

– Love grows here

– Just married

– Party Time

– Happy Friends

– Surf’s up

– Merry Christmas!

I also made a dinosaur Foldy mini-book for fun 🙂

REFLECTION:

I enjoyed creating these pictures using photographs of arranged objects. I loved the combination of space/ stars backgrounds with the dinosaurs and I think I could have extended that theme.
