FOTO-JOINERS

Durante esta unidad llamada “Bios-vida y Grafíen-escribir” el grupo formado por los alumnos de 6º de primaria: Almudena, Paula, Darío, Marc, Eia-liv y Leire, hemos realizado un proyecto durante las sesiones de Plástica.

Nuestro objetivo era hacernos un autorretrato reflejando lo que más nos gusta hacer y/o algo que nos represente.

Para ello hemos decidido utilizar  la técnica del “foto-collage” tomando como referencia a David Hockney, un fotógrafo que hizo collages titulados “joiners” (es un juego de palabras: “joiner” significa “carpintero” y “to join” significa “unir”) con fotos de gente, paisajes y objetos. Así explica Hockney su técnica: “hice 9 fotografías a un niño desde diferentes ángulos. Las recorté, acoplándolas unas a otras y las junté como en un rompecabezas”.
