I came across this article while I was reading the news on the internet. It’s about this man called Keisuke Yamada who carved bananas to create small sculptures. It seems easy but when you think about it, it’s actually quite hard to do because bananas are delicate and if you make one tiny mistake, it may damage the whole banana.
Here’s the link to the article:
Which of the sculptures are your favourites? I like the dragon the most!
Hope you enjoy!
Since we were talking about rotting and molding food, I found the article about the McDonalds Burger and Fries project. An artist and photographer called Sally Davies bought a McDonald burger and left it in her kitchen for 6 months taking pictures of it everyday. It didn’t even rot or grow mold over 6 months! It’s a flickr project.
Here’s the link:
Tell me what you think about this.

So, choose your focus. Make a comment to tell us which one you would like to focus on, and why.
- How people earn money
- What happens to rubbish

We have been finding powerful and high-quality images to visually communicate emotions and feelings. We use Creative Commons to find images that are good quality and that we have permission to use. We download them into our image library folder and then put them into PowerPoint so that we can work with them. Once we’re finished, we save them as a JPEG and upload them to our Flickr account.
This weekend, Paula created this image for “effervescent” and emailed it to me. Here is her email:
Hi Mr. Sam,
after we have been doing some presentation lessons with Mr. Will I have gone home and looked for more pictures that were relevant. When I tried searching for bubbling soda water nothing really relevant to effervescent came up so I thought I could take a picture by myself.
I first tried with a small camera which didn’t really work at all so I asked my mom to help she said she’d help but we’d use the big camera (Canon 5D). I really trust her because she has taken a lot of good pictures (my dad as well) thats why they bought such a good camera. So my mom even changed the lense because we had a special lense that was especially for close ups and then I was pouring some soda water into a glass while she took pictures and I then worked on it in Picasa.
Hope you like it,
Ruby and Zahra have really enjoyed the Rainforest Pool here at Birds and Bees in Pattaya.These photos really show the feelings of joy and freedom that have made the last few days so special for them and me.
What makes you feel the same as Ruby and Zahra do in these photos?
During your Spot-Check on Friday, Mr. Adrian asked a number of you to give us a definition of your issue. He asked questions like this:
- What are privacy settings?
- Can you define ‘racism’… what does it mean?
- What does “endangered species” mean?
- Can you explain what sustainability means?
Many of you found it difficult to answer his question and had to make up something on the spot which wasn’t very clear. This was a wake-up call and you need to make sure you know exactly how to define your issue and explain the key words that surround it.
Your task for today and tonight is to create a poster that says, in no more than 140 letters, what your issue actually means. Your poster must :
- contain only one image
- no more than 140 letters
- be created in Microsoft Word and then converted to an A3 Pdf file and emailed to me.
