As part the ‘New Media Subject’, final year PSC students recently worked on a stencilling assignment exploring the idea of how technology changes the aesthetics of image making. These art pieces can be viewed along the back wall of the PSC building on Fawkner Street.
Student Alexandria Bencinich wrote the following about her experience:
‘Stencil making is a form of image making most of us third years had yet to delve in. It was good to be hands on cutting out our stencil, (even though cramps set in after the five minutes) opposed to clicking away on a mouse.
The process involved some quick photo adjustments, a 30x30cm print (courtesy of Peter) and some precision with a stanley knife to create our desired image.
Then the fun part came; choosing your space on the College’s back wall, grabbing the black spray can and making your mark.
Student’s stencils varied from portraits of family and friends to animals to artistic creations. I like Jess M’s stencil of a skull with text, and Liane’s and Chloe Carbine’s attention to detail.
I like the idea of not knowing when my image will disappear and how it is waterproof.
GO AND CHECK THEM ALL OUT’
