Progression with R + J

I've been experimenting with layering the shadows onto text and have found that it makes the imagery less clear. I may try out different coloured papers and give it another try as i had intended to incorporate moving text with the shadows.
I made a small booth in which to encase it all in and after playing around with the shadows I have found it may work better for the text to be situated on the base and the shadows to be shone onto the back wall. 
Now i've worked out a nice set up i need to sort out my other cuttings, and the text to work with it.

Slutty brownies

Today I felt like indulging in some baking and made 'Slutty Brownies' which is a delightful "who cares about the calories" mixture of cookie dough, Oreo biscuits and chocolate Brownie. YUM!
All you need is Betty Crocker cookie mix, Oreo biscuits and Betty Crocker chocolate brownie mix. 
You layer it all up and cook for 30 minutes.
If you're already in a chocolate induced coma and need a step by step guide on how to make them here's the full recipe.

Shadow Making

Last night I had a momentous brainwave and after struggling for 3 months solid I think i've discovered a technique that would work well with recreating the narrative of Romeo + Juliet. 
I had originally planned to tell the story though paper cuttings in the form of a book but now i'm considering using shadows created with my paper cuttings in an interactive way. 
I think i could finally be on to something here....YIPEE!! 


Met' museum of art and History



At the beginning of March (08th - 12th) I went on a 5 day trip organised by my university to go to New York and it couldn't have come at a better time as my 21st was on the 9th so It was an experience i'll never forget.
We spent our time seeing the sights and visiting various art galleries whilst trying to fit in as much as we possibly could. 
I enjoyed it so much i'm now looking into going back to the US some way or another a.s.a.p and even considering working out there for a short period of time next year as i finish university in June.
