As I will be using plastic in my main/final images, I decided to look at artist Rebecca Scheinberg as I feel her aesthetics are quite similar to my desired outcomes. Mainly I admire Scheinberg’s colour pallet, she has intertwined certain colours within her work to achieve this vintage yet modern mood, to me this is especially present in ‘THE DEBRIEF’.  The pale skin contrasted with the pink nails and blue water evokes a certain futuristic atmosphere.

 

The second image that inspired me was TOHU VA BOHU for both aesthetic and conceptual purposes. I feel like the subject present in the image has the appearance of a plastic pill. This encourages me to think about an artificial reality, how in this current day individuals use medication to improve and enhance themselves. Then my thoughts expanded to the idea of artificial beauty, the idea that we use cosmetics and other materialistic items to fit into a socially constructed idea of beauty. This whole idea could relate or emphasize my theme of exhaustion, as it is a constant battle to fit into this social construction, especially in London.

 

I can convey this idea through the use of cling-film as the plastic element will be visible to the viewer. I feel it will create the notion of entrapment but also visually communicate a sense of a plastic reality.

By dealing together, both of you can address problems of self-esteem and mutual trust.  Use these circumspectly however, because they may lower blood sugar, which is an unsatisfactory effect in men whose blood glucose levels are properly balanced.

Doctor Who is now considered a British Institute and has come a long way since it first aired on November 23rd 1963. The very first show saw the Doctor travel 100,00 years into the past to help some dim cavemen discover light. After 26 seasons and seven Doctors later the series came off our screens in 1989 much to the disappointment of the huge devoted fanbase. In 1996 an attempt was made to revive Doctor Who but it wasnt until June 2005 when it came back with a vengeance with Christopher Eccleston as the ninth Doctor that put the series back on the map as it were. It then went on for 5 years with David Tenant portraying the Doctor until 2010 when Matt Smith took over the role. Today it is still a great family show and has attracted many new fans.

If youre a new or old fan of the show there are Tours and museums you can go and see some of the locations and memorabilia of this classic show. The Doctor Who Tour of London will take you on over 15 locations from the show, some from the new series and some from old sites like the location of The Invasion and Resurrection of the Darleks. The tour also takes you to the TV museum in London where you will get to see some of the cosumes worn in the show and props used. Also you can buy gifts and memorabilia from the shop.

You will learn all about how the shows were made so the tour is also educational. If you want to take pictures of the locations thats not a problem. Remember the front door of 10 Downing Street in Aliens of London? Well you can get up and close to this and get your picture taken in front of the door. Rose Tyler fans will love the tour as you get to drop by her home in the show.

Why not go that extra mile and actually meet a Doctor Who star. Well this is possible with private or group tours. You will get the general tour but included will be a pre-arranged meeting or lunch with a celebrity from the show. This will obviously depend on availability of the celebrity and the cost will reflect the popularity of that celebrity.

There are tours in London and also Wales. The Wales tours take you to Cardiff where you will see lots of location which were featured in shows since 2005. You can leave from London or at Leigh Delamere services station on the M4. There is a Doctor Who exhibition in Cardiff which you get to see. At the end of the Doctor Who tour you get a souvenir group picture sent you by email which is a nice touch.

For seriously devoted Doctor Who fans there is a 3 day tour which takes you to all the locations in both London and Cardiff. You will see locations from the past 45 years as well as recent sites from the lasted Doctor Who series. Day one is based in London where you get to see 15 sites. Day two takes you to Cardiff where you get to mean the real life owner of the to see we have an Gothic property used as the location of the school in Human Nature. The final day is partly spent in Cardiff with a walking tour at Cardiff Bay, then you head back to London but a stop at Stonehenge to see the site of the Pandoica. Then its dinner at The Cloven Hoof pub in Devils End b efore you taken back to central London.
