Alternative Field Piece – Tom Phillips Artist research

Because for Alternative Field Piece I had to concentrate on a different medium than photography and the piece had to in some way be inspired by the Field Group Work I started experimenting with layering text and images. At first it was all spontaneous and didn’t seem to work with me at all. I came across the book ‘The Humument’ by Tom Phillips who made his own story out of words from a book called ‘The Human Document’. I found that book to be an inspiration towards a potential final piece. At this early stage I am unsure what’s going to happen but I want to include images of Cardiff that I have taken and painting them on top of a page from a book then finding words that connect to the image – perhaps create my own interpretation of what I see/feel. Here are some examples of my starting point and Tom Phillips’ work:
