Transcript of Recording

Sketchbook Recording
Why Record?
What to Record
Who Records
Artists, Photographers, musicians, surgeons, writers – all kinds of people.``
Photographger & Artist - Henri Cartier-Bresson –

‘For me, the camera is a sketchbook, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously.’

'Photography is an immediate reaction, drawing a meditation'.
Bresson drew and photographed the world around him creating a record of the times.
Artist Leonardo da Vinci
In many of his books Leonardo employed a backwards form of writing that could only be read with a mirror.
It is unknown why he did this. Some historians speculate he did it to keep his writings private, others think that because he was left-handed he just found it easier and faster to write this way.

Clearly the notebooks were written for his own personal use. The organization is minimal. The lettering is quick, sloppy and often without punctuation.
Examples of sketchbooks
- an account in writing or pictures preserving the memory or knowledge of facts or events….- recording how and why you did what you did
- to relate or to tell others of the journey through your project
- to keep information for the future, by writing it down or storing it on a computer – this information may become useful at a later date
- a piece of information or a description of an event which is written on paper or stored on a computer – you will all need to record in a sketchbook each session but you may choose to make digital records too…..
•Ideas & thoughts
•Inspiration & Influences - research artists and subjects how these were helpful
•Compositional sketches
•Technical information – what equipment and materials you have used how these relate to the concept or theme
? Question
What ways can you think of to record and store information of the world around you?
Think of ways which you already do this…
How to record
•Imagery – photographs, drawings, postcards, bus tickets
•Writings and information
•Your thoughts and ideas – even if these have been written on the back of envelopes, stick them in.
Explain & Reflect
•How others do things
•Why you are doing something
•How you are doing something
•If it worked and why
Your books should record how you move through your projects – make it personal and creative.

Think about composition, materials and colour.
