Draft Installation Design/ Mock-Ups

Important Notice -

This category of blog posts is about a module/project for my Fine Art Degree. This particular module contains an element to plan every aspect and make the work to be put in a hypothetical exhibit. This means the exhibit isn't planned for real, it's all pretend for my grade. This is so we get real-life experience and learn the elements and factors of putting on an exhibit. This means everything is thought about, the context, budgets, audience, why etc but no Exhibit is happening. This blog post talks about the Baltic which I have decided to be the place where my hypothetical exhibit would "happen". I'm not affiliated with the Baltic; this is university work.


Using the Baltics Archive I found photos of previous exhibits to form my exhibit mock-ups to create a unique room and space based on my project.


This entrance to the exhibit has the show title and is painted a rich deep red to show the passion and intimacy included in the show.


The door is covered with fabric due to the space needing to be kept dark to show videos and lights for the artwork.

I used a mix of Procreate and Photoshop to edit the photos I found to be an empty room to edit my artwork into them.

This photo shows where the video with bean bag seating is, the show text, and the paintings hung on the walls. It’s a small to medium-sized room and I wanted the sound from the videos playing to be heard from all areas of the space to influence the viewing of the artwork as well.


 I know from this room being used for two videos playing currently from a trip that one issue was the plastic structure made for seating wasn’t enough for the visitors coming in to view them and from another exhibit that was showing an animation that bean bags and pillows provided a fun and comfortable floor seating for more people. Choosing bean bags allows multiple people to sit comfortably on the floor without having to take away from the room by putting chairs in a row in front of the projector. It allows them to be moved and placed when there's not enough seating for groups as chairs make it difficult to do this, putting off those where there aren’t enough seats for the entire group together to sit.


The glow in the dark represents the community and those in a queer relationship and how they have to hide, sometimes turn invisible to avoid conflict or trouble while out. No one should feel like this and have to feel like they have to hide their love, connection and interest in their other half. No hetero couple would feel this type of social stigma against them. I couldn’t say that anywhere in the North East I have been I haven’t experienced this, the only place myself and Ace have been where we have been able to walk the streets holding hands etc and not feel like we should pull apart for walking past certain people or because of things shouted or said was in York.
