Order and Disorder
Order and Disorder combined
Order and Disorder within everyday life
Road works create disorder, but they are attempting to create order
First the pieces are all separated (disorder) then the pieces are all put together (order)
Could stick puzzle pieces onto my photography
Order and Disorder combine which results in mental problems for individuals
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
What is OCD?
A mental illness that is part of anxiety. There are two parts to it including obsessions and compulsions. I could explore this concept through two concepts:
Exploring how OCD people perceive the world
How they view patterns, shapes, structures (links back to order and disorder)
Photo shoots of structures and patterns in still life photography
Photo shoots of architecture photography focusing on structures, shapes and patterns of buildings

Could explore how people who suffer with OCD are obsessed with patterns, shape and structure and how everything has to be ‘exact’
Could explore the concept of Ornamentation throughout my photography
How they perceive themselves
Their compulsions can take up much of their time and they may avoid certain events or situations that could trigger their OCD.
They may feel exhausted
They may feel ashamed of their thoughts and themselves and may attempt to hide their their OCD from others
They may feel like they cannot be treated
Feel isolated, as they may struggle to be around people
Could explore this concept through portrait photography showing order through normal portraits that represent them trying to conceal their OCD from others. The disorder could be shown through manipulated images that portray the other side and images covering their faces to represent their embarrassment
Cluttered mind, tidy house. OCD people may be organised, but their mind is far from it.
Order and Disorder in architecture
Order and chaos collide together within the subject of architecture and urban spaces
Chaos is an interference in geometric order
Mathematical forms, for instance in 2D like lines or 3D such as spheres and cubes clash with relationships within architecture such as perpendicular and symmetry. Chaos is the opposite of geometric order as it is represented by forms and relationships that are complex
A room that is really mess but the owner knows exactly where everything is
Could be a situation where there is no organisation but the results are still good
A restaurant that is very busy with good food, but the kitchen is a mess
A person who is very disorganised but always gets good marks in a test
Within everyday life
Order of routine
Sometimes our daily routine results in people forgetting to live without a purpose in life
Could show this concept of repetition in life through photography
Order within architecture
The physical structure of ordered architecture
Architecture should have durability meaning it should remain in good condition
Should be used for the purposes which it is intended for
Order within emotions
I could try to present emotions through my experimentation
Order within nature
Calming weather conditions
Links to landscape photography
Patterns and shapes within nature
Complex ordered structures
Opening up fruit to expose these structures
Could experiment with printmaking with fruit
Within everyday life
Disorder within routine
What could prevent someone from carrying on with their everyday life?
Illness - physical or mental
Disorder within the mind
People may think that it's all in your head
How you view yourself may be disrupted due to your head
Disorder within the body
May be angry at yourself for developing this illness - may blame yourself
May have to live with pain
Can it be treated or is it permanent?
If they are in love
Links to disorder within emotions
How do you show the feeling of love without being cliche?
Can't get the person out of your mind
All you want to do is be with them
If they develop a phobia
Disorder within architecture
Disordered architecture would be mismatched. Can this type of architecture still be pleasing to look at?
Unorganised shape, lines and patterns
Colours that don't match
Architecture that doesn't fit the aesthetic of the city
Buildings that are organised chaos
Disorder within nature
Plants growing around architecture
The invasion of nature
Natural vs Man made
Is man made weaker than Natural due to the passing of time?
Urban areas may be destroyed during natural disasters
Humans are stopped from continuing with their lives during harsh weather conditions. Does that mean that nature has more power over us?
Natural areas are being destroyed everyday as they cannot prevent humans from invading the landscape
What is more pleasing to look at, concrete jungles or landscapes sculpted by Mother Nature?
Can pause and create havoc on everyday life
Disorder within emotions
Emotions you cannot control
Questioning if disorder can be appleasing to the eye as well as order
Could explore this concept in regards to people with OCD focusing on three concepts: architecture, still life and portraiture
