Most of your will probably see this as quite a strange title for a blog post but I promise I have a good reason behind it!
Basically, I am currently at university studying Contemporary Art Practices and have recently become very interested in the subject of nuclear holocausts and nuclear bombings. I know it sounds a very depressing subject but I can assure you it really is quite interesting research!
At the end of last year I took a set of photographs which portrayed my ideas about the aftermath of a nuclear holocaust. I tried to imagine life if anyone was to survive this tragic event.
These are just a few of the photographs which I took for uni. I have now also got a few videos including interviews which I did with friends and family, asking them questions about their thoughts and feelings on the subject.
The reason I am telling you about my work is because I could really do with some of your ideas!
For my final piece, (which I need to begin working on asap!) I was thinking of either trying make my own bomb shelter or asking some kind of business to help me, such as a builder or welder. My idea is to present my work inside of the shelter.
Now is where I need your help! I have no idea where to begin with this crazy project! I'll show you a picture of something I had in mind..
I think the shelter you can see in this photo is just the entrance but I need to make something of a similar size so it'll fit into my university building for my final exhibition! I was thinking of maybe trying to use corrugated metal to make this shape and then covering it with leaves as camouflage. The only problem is, what kind of person would I have to ask to help me make something like this?!
If anybody has any different ideas on how to make something along these lines I would greatly appreciate it! Remember it doesn't need to be as sturdy as a real bomb shelter!
