M4 - Week 5 - Project developent


When thinking of a more methodical approach to the photographed subjects in my project I was wondering if there is a way to combine all the interesting aspects I focused on so far. I'd like to keep exploring byproducts as a very characteristic type of contemporary objects, analyse their decontextualised meaning, intensify the attractive visual properties. All with implementing the unpredictability of the camera 'mistakes', the totally new areas produced by the intentional glitches of the HDR mode algorithmic procedure.

I am not sure if this will work really in the long term but I came up with some idea which seems to bind together all the interesting aspects. I want to deconstruct/unwrap some products and arrange the components in an abstract manner - considering their form, colour, texture and other properties, not their primary function/meaning. 

I shared the idea with Krishna during the webinar and she was really supporting this approach so here the 'Unwrapped' series begun. 

The first product I unwrapped was a small pack of Ferrero Rocher chocolates. It was an intentional choice due to couple of layers of packaging which included some paper forms but first of all golden aluminium wraps which I find very interesting for many reasons and photographed it already recently.
