A session for GCSE students with Kettles Yard exploring the GCSE theme of Reflection
An invitation to each group to construct a reflective space, each with a slightly different focus, 30 mins to build using the variety of reflective surfaces supplied.
These spaces offer somewhere to think and look more closely. The students spend time capturing themselves within these surfaces with their cameras. Blind contour drawing offers time to closely examine their reflection without the barrier of the screen. What happens when we look beyond the boundaries of our own bodies and experience ourselves in relation to our environment.
We watch ourselves. We watch others. We watch others being watched. We watch ourselves being watched.
