The idea was that I would reproduce 100 album links via an underground style map using Illustrator. First I needed to 'map' this out. I have scanned this work below. As you can see this was getting quite 'busy' and at this stage I had only linked 42 albums. I felt the map would have to be huge to see the album covers (A0 at least) which would have just been to expensive to print. So I had a rethink.
The 'spine ' of the map seemed to be Barney Bubbles (Pencil on map). I was becoming more and more intrigued by this little written about designer, so I decided to focus the research on him. After copious amounts of independent research I found a book written by Paul Gorman called 'Reason to be cheerful' which joined all the dots. What was emerging through the research that there were lots of blogs and almost a 'cult' following of this guy, yet still not a lot had been written about him.
After the first Moving image workshop with Mike I began to visualise the possibility of doing a Moving image about Barney Bubbles. Even better after the second workshop when we used Final Cut express was that I could now work out how to link both Music and video to the images.
