New Brief '7x7"

I am working with Jane and we have been team up by a creative writer from MMU Crew for the Manchester Literature festival at the Corner house in October. Our story is about and called 'A Conversation With Quetzalcoatl (The god Quetzalcoatl, is the Feathered Serpent or Precious Twin). We are going to research and go deeper into looking at Mexican Culture and Aztec Gods. Quetzalcoatl is the god intelligence and self-reflection, a patron of priests. Quetzalcoatl is a primordial god of creation- He is a good God and and he created the current world and the fifth sun, by using his own blood to give new life to bones. He is the giver of breath and the god of winds.

Quetzalcoatl symbols - Quetzal feathers and light shines off him. A Quetzal is a fruit eating bird, sacred bird of the ancient Mayas and Aztecs . Today the bird is found in part of the cloud forest from southern Mexico.

Aztec tombs

Aztec Totem.

This is an idea for one of the finished images. It's all been hand made and photographed. Me and Jane are happy with the outcome. All our props have been photographed and now we are playing around with the images.

We're interested at
Pierre et Gilles Using photographs and adding other elements onto the image.

We are happy with the end result, we are gointo to refine the two images more over the summer. Changing the background- maybe paint it or make the background 3D to make the image join together and photograph it again, I had so much fun working with Jane and would like to work with Jane in 3rd year on a project or something.

We're not finished yet, end result will be in September with an animation too
