This is my weekly archive of the work I’ve produced for The Daily Create (TDC).
The Daily Create (TDC) 01 – A photograph that features a repeating pattern
I took this photo very quickly. I remember having a very definite idea how the star pattern on the cushion and blanket could be used for this TDC.
I took this photo as my morning train arrived at the platform. I like how the repeating pattern of the tactile tiles on the edge of platform sharply contrasts the blur of the train. This time, I think the inherently poor quality of the camera in my mobile doesn’t necessarily detract from the photograph.
The Daily Create (TDC) 02 – A photograph that looks better in black and white than it did in colour
Another photograph taken with my mobile phone while waiting for my train. Does this photo look better in colour? I’m not so sure.
The Daily Create (TDC) 03 – A photograph that emphasises the sky by placing the horizon very low or very high
I took this photo very quickly as I arrived early for work. I don’t really like this photo at all. I don’t like the colour, composition or image quality.
The Daily Create (TDC) 04 – A photograph of someone holding an old photograph of themselves
Taken with my webcam for the TDC beta test. It’s my 1993 student concession identification card for Melbourne’s public transport system. I tried to match my 1993 facial expression.
Taken with my webcam. Me and baby me. I think I’m about 1 year old in this photo.
Taken with my webcam. My son Alex and his ultrasound scan at around 5-6 weeks.
The Daily Create (TDC) 05 – A sound that represents the sound of the meal you ate or made today
I ate a banana, some milk and a croissant, but not in that order. I made the sound of a monkey, a cow being milked and strange impression of Edith Piaf.
The Daily Create (TDC) 06 – An audio recording of two sounds not normally heard together
A phone call call and a flush. I guess they’re not normally heard together.
The Daily Create (TDC) 07 – An audio recording of an everyday object used as an musical instrument
Metal chopsticks and a cheese grater. Percussive and maybe a little bit Zydeco.
