Kibera TV: 2 Channel Fold-Out + Logo Ideas
As I combined these two channels, the biggest question I was forced to answer was: how do I arrange the images in a visually interesting way and reinforce the narrative with their information? In this, I chose to use all of my original text compositions, but cut down my images from the original 20 on the building blocks. I had originally planned on using the folds of the paper to create boxes that would contain my image and text. However, I chose to place each one in a specific spot, at a specific size, to correspond and form a relationship with the text. I wanted the two channels to be intertwined. One of the greatest things that I learned through this fold-out print was the experience of printing a double-sided paper fold, that, when put together, creates one composition (i.e. section 4). I chose to include remnants of the building blocks with the orange and green color cubes throughout the piece to add color, break up the space and make the print more interesting to the viewer. I am glad that I decided to attempt this. Although the actual print was not up to standard, the viewer can still see that each of the images/objects line up to create one composition.
