Having completed MA Interior and Spatial Design (see the work in this blog post) and some work experience with big design firms we feel like we’ve learnt some stuff.
Bethvictoria.com are now taking on some interior design projects as well as the wallpaper and wall coverings. We’ve got a couple on the go but are always happy to talk to anyone about any projects from tiny to huge that we may be able to help with!
Heres a little recap of what we offer:
Two variations available in two different colours, part of the 2014 originals collection.
A hand painted service currently available in the Berkshire and London area. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any enquiries of this service.
Prints and art
Photographic prints. As well as Interior and Spatial design we also studied Photography and have a small collection of our images available as prints on our website and Etsy.
We also have a small limited edition amount of crayon art. Available in three different sizes and can be found on our Etsy site too.
Interior and Spatial Design
We’re at the very early stages of the two interiors projects we have on at the moment. So heres a sample of our Masters work and a design for a seating area done as part of work experience.
Hopefully this space will get filled up with a variety of spatial, residential and hospitality interior design in the not too distant future! Again contact email@example.com for any more information.
Watch out for blog posts on the projects progress in the not too distant future!
The Camera Obscura is an optical device that was essential in the development of the camera and photography.
When done right creating a room into a camera obscura is an incredible thing.
Abe Morell is one of the top camera obscura makers. He travels around and makes hotel rooms into these beautiful naturally projected works.
In his early work he recorded the camera obscura with the use of long exposure black and white film photography. He then started to use the new technologies of digital photography.
He also then started to use lenses and prisms to flip the image and to make it as sharp as possible.
With the work that I am doing on my MA I decided to give it a go. The results weren’t the best. But neither is the view out the window… Its just the rail track and the cranes from all the building sites in Elephant and Castle.
I need to practice and refine this work so that it creates the colourful and interesting images that Abelardo Morell has achieved.
It seems pretty simple to make. You black out all the window and other light sources. Then cut a hole in the black out. Play with varying sized holes until you get the image projecting at a good size and sharpness. Add a prism or a lens to sharpen and make the projection as clear as possible.
The key with this is that you need to wait 15-20 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the light before you can actually see the outcome.
But, of course it isn’t that easy. It takes a lot of playing around and a completely blacked out room to get the right effect.
