Sheep Works And Head Works

Submitted by root on Tue, 09/18/2012 - 13:35

First Game

The players are invited to create an image of an object using smaller images of different varieties of the same object.

The Headwork (a head made up of pictures of heads) and its companion the Sheepwork (a sheep made up of pictures of sheep) are two examples of how this was carried out at the Blackie.

The Headwork was the result of a weekend of creative activities for young people set up by the Merseyide Youth Association in which the Blackie participated. Making the work was led by Blackie staff Wendy Harpe and Stevie Smith.  The Sheepwork was created by Wendy Harpe as part of an exploration of the uses of polaroid  in games.

Second Game

The players are invited to create an image of an object using small images of different varieties of different objects.

Clouds of sheep and River of Sheep are two examples of works resulting from this game - see below - again created by Wendy Harpe.

All the images in the above games were taken using a polaroid camera which has of course meant that they have faded with time.
