City of Newport – Pechakucha presentationPosted: January 29, 2014
My exploration of the City of Newport through history books, documentary videos and documenting the field research (photography, observational drawing, found objects, sound and texture) has lead me to find out more about the working class of Newport. Newport has been a port centre for trading since the medieval time. Through out time and development, trading is still the main soul of the city, both goods and service.
I’d like to look further into the working class people that makes Newport a home. My plan is to have interviews, maybe a survey and making video of trading in Newport indoor market, Llanwern steel works and pubs around the city. I am also interested in drawing portraits of them to be made into print works or book. But I still keep my mind open to new ways in creating body of works for this project.
