Idea Number One
Scan In Face - The idea is that I scan each part of my face in (Top, Bottom, Left and Right) and stitch them together using Photoshop to create one 2 and a 1/2 D circle face.
Idea Number Two
Family Face Transplant - The idea is that I take passport style photos of me and my family, then using Photoshop switch the faces around, So my face in on my mums body and vice versa.
Idea Number Three
A Blurry Recognition - The idea is that I will take revolved photos of my face (Front, Back and Side) then take them into Photoshop and blur the photos.
Idea Number Four
My Scan In Face - The idea is that I will scan my face in like before, but this time focus on the main facial parts of my face (Nose, Mouth, Eyes etc.) crop them down to be square shapes and combine them together in Photoshop to create a Jenny Saville inspired piece.
Idea Number Five
Realistic Face Collage - This idea is literally what is says in the name. I will gather photographs of my face, then cut out the different features of my face and combine them together to create a different picture of me.
Idea Number Six
Unrealistic Face Collage - The idea again is what it says in the name. But this time I will gather the photographs, play about with colour, resize them, rotate them and stitch them together sort of like leather face.
Idea Number Seven
Colour Mood Photos - The idea of this is to take pictures of myself, about stomach up, these pictures will show a different emotion in my face. I will then take them into Photoshop, black and white the image, play about with contrast and make my body shadows really dark/black. Then change the colour inside my body to match the mood, but then use a drastic contrasting colour for the background.
Idea Number Eight
Layered Polaroid Face - Take lots of Polaroid size photos of my face. Place them together in Photoshop, overlap them and make the lines/ features in my face follow. Very David Hockney inspired.
Idea Number Nine
Scribble Drawing - Very quickly draw a rough line drawing of my body in a weird pose, really showing and exaggerating parts of my body that i am not too fond of, or could be improved. Very Geon Scheele inspired and styled.
Sorry for the repeats, I just wanted to list them all one after the other clearly.
