Presence and Absense

  • Amelia Al-Attar

My Final major project for my Art foundation diploma centered around the feeling of invisibility and being forgotten. The project looked at the centiment of a photo album and how it would look with someone missing. This project was very close to home and based on feelings I had growing up. Origins 2017 – Winners Special commendation – Level 3 Art & Design – Amelia Al-Attar, Abingdon & Witney College "Abingdon and Witney student Amelia Al-Attar was awarded a special commendation prize for her work, a set of two traditional family photo albums, at first sight identical but one where her own image had been digitally erased from every print. In addition to being a very technically sophisticated piece the judges were impressed with the alternative narratives that the work provoked in the viewer, posing questions about identity and relationships" – Sarah Atkinson, Head of Academic Standards UAL
