Carved Banana Sculptures

October 18, 2011 1 comment

Hi Everyone,

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!



MacDonalds Burger & Fries Photo Project

Hi Everyone,

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.

We’ll be going for another walk tomorrow. This time, we are going to have a focus, something that we will be looking for. To make it really interesting, different people will focus on different things.

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
  • How people move around
  • What people buy and sell
  • Where people live
  • What and where people eat
  • How things are organized
  • People’s emotions


Powerful Images and Powerful Words

October 8, 2010 3 comments

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.

Paula created her own image!

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,
