In this particular project, it is an in-depth exercise to gain intensive knowledge of the selected contemporary artists in worldwide.

Presentation of info graphic in size one (1) A2 board (Portrait Format)

This is my first project for this semester ,yes,it’s my second semester already!

This project is about our exploration of Info Graphic. Info graphic is a fun way of putting our research into a graphic visual. It’s a interesting and not boring presentation way for us. We can put different shape and picture into our presentation so we can display the information more effectively.

The artist that i have been chosen to do research with is Nick Veasey. Then I need to put all the research into a mind map form so that i can easily to arrange all of my information into my info graphic more easily.

Nick Veasey is a British photographer who is born in London in 1962. He worked in a advertising and design industries and then he have been ask to x-ray a soda can for a tv show. From that time, he started to build his interest towards creating x-ray image.

I have use THREE keywords for the artist that i have been chosen to do research with. The three keywords are :

  1. CONTRAST (different in juxtaposition)
  2. MONOTONE (colour)
  3. TRANSLUCENT (material : x-ray film)
