V&A Evaluation

The V&A Evaluation
When we took a trip to the V&A gallery our aim was to 'Capture'. We were asked what the word capture meant in our own words I came up with the following:

Capture:-

  • Photography/Cameras
  • Filming/Videos
  • Diaries
  • Memories/Events
  • Past/Present/Future
  • Internet
  • Networking Sites
  • Drawing/Paintings
  • Observing
  • Writing
We were told things about the V&A and what it was about. I made notes on what the cureator said.

The V&A
  • Uses design objects to tell a story
  • Popular culture tastes are shown as well as non-popular
  • Such as lighting & radio of the 2oth century as it shows how it has evolved over the years
  • Some objects came from World War times.
  • Transport is also a big design issue and it has become so different from now
  • Images collected are used to tell a story
  • 21st century meant after the WWII
  • Some designs are according to fashionable taste
  • Items like clothes changed since the 1950's
  • The gallery captures by collecting things from the past and present
  • Some objects reflect on the kind of designs nowadays, as people may recognise something but seem a little different from what they see now

We were told to capture 3 visual images of items we found interesting or significant in some way.These are my drawings from 3 different objects.




































During this trip I've learned the many ways there are to capture and the variety of meanings the word could have in a media/art related way.
