Here is my stop motion animation piece for part of my Wonderful Waste project.
I’ve been looking at the idea of paper waste, in particular, newspaper waste. I tried to make it look like the ink was melting out of the paper, to demonstrate how temporary a newspaper really is. They are only relavent for one day before they become useless.
I took the phrase ‘Trash Talk’ because I personally think that a lot of the things that you read in newspaper articles is not always completely truthful and they can be very on sided and biased. They also tend to be very gossip and rumour based.
Also the information can be completely pointless.
Who cares if Amelia from X-factor went out with Frankie Cocozza till whatever time in the morning then sat on the pavement and cried for two hours, while he went off with some ‘flirty blonde’.
I used glue and ink, and I had latex at the bottom which I then peeled off to reveal the words.
