You've got to roll with it…
We have had a lot of discussion about photography recently, both at Format and here on WeAreOCA, so it felt time for a practical project – a competition. Inspired by Joel Meyerowitz’s image of a Manet inspired pastoral scene with a toilet roll, the competition challenges OCA students to come up with an image including a toilet roll.
Your image doesn’t have to be a photograph, it can be a drawing, painting, even a photograph of an installation. Whatever inspires you. My less than notable image of typical OCA office scene, entitled ‘Allergy’ is above. We are sure you can do better. Images are submitted by uploading them to the OCA group on flickr and tagging them ‘rollwithit’. The deadline in midnight on 17 April and the entries will be judged by the photography tutors and course leaders on 20 April.
There is, of course, a prize. It is a copy of the DVD of Lucy Walker’s film of Vik Muniz Waste Land project. The trailer below gives a flavour of project, but probably foces more on the people involved than the project and the art:
Finally, if the name Vik Muniz is familiar to you, but you can’t think why, you are probably thinking of his chocolate Jackson Pollock which is featured in the Charlotte Cotton book The Photograph as ContemporaryArt
