Advanced Studio Practice 2A – Divergent thinking – Ribbon

Myself and my partner were given an object which we had to put into a context and photograph. We created a list of divergent ideas in ways we could use the ribbon;

  • rope – climbing, skipping rope, boats, bike strings
  • hair ties/bows
  • rainbow
  • dog lead
  • spaghetti
  • shoe laces
  • tennis net
  • tents/camping
  • nets

We decided to conceptualise our ribbon by putting it on a serious object in order to demoralise it and show the representation that ribbon is fun and free. We did this by tying ribbon to the handle bars of a road bike. This allows adults to relate to the subject and remember back to their child hood. A time where they were young, wild, free and that they should not take life too seriously.
We struggled at first in piecing the image together in order to capture this concept however after using different locations and lighting we managed to capture the images we/I wanted. I have managed to capture shadows and different elements of the bike throughout my shooting and believe that the images i have shot capture our concept and allow people to see that ribbon is fun and free.
