A photogram is a photographic image that is created without a camera. Using different materials such as glass, plastic, etc, On the surface of the paper creates the outline of the negative and positive shadows, as the paper is photo-sensitive to light, The paper is exposed to light when the objects are placed on the surface, it illustrates how the light is blocked in areas of the photogram to create the positive and negative shadows, The shadows from the photograms creates the 2D and 3D effect outcome that show what the objects were and the reflection of shade and contrast.
During the task of the photograms I used a variety of objects such as, fork, keys, feather, jar. these objects created different lines and tones as they have different thicknesses and sizes to devop on the photogram.
For example my first photograms I was just experimenting with different objects with a variety of sizes, thickness and translucents.
This problem I solved I began by using different translucents, thickness (ect) you can see how the light has hit the objects creating different contrast on tonal shades and line.
As this photogram is bolder, creating the 2D illusion on the paper with thick line.
For the next problem solving I began creating structures of 2D and creating 3D form by manipulating 2D materials I tested on the photograms to create 3D illusions from the ideas I created.
This idea I created was inspired by my mixed sculpture piece I did, which was another problem I solved by manipulating my observational drawings from the museum.
This photogram is what was produced after creating the stencil, as it created the bold lines I also used the cut out from the stencil as it created a beautiful reflection on what the inside of the stencil shape creates.
The bottom picture is an experiment I did on acetate, creating a 3D form from cardboard. After creating the 3D form I decided to manipulate it to a 2D form I used on the photogram.
