Demonstration by Dave Richards

Audiovisual talk on "The Natural History Project", 12 June 2009

Visit him at www.davidrichards.org.uk
Dave (BA Honors, Fine Art,1st Class) was inspired by Darwin and Lyme Regis fossils, by five years at University College for the Creative Arts (where he learnt welding, amongst other things!) and courses on Professional Presentation and Communications Skills and Training.

Other inspiration came from Duxford and from the Natural History Museum.
Most of the work he showed us was produced using Photoshop to process photographs of real or image-processed backgrounds and of models made of paper, modelling clay and sometimes metal.

After a couple of lovely slide-shows with a tongue-in-cheek "Attenborough" commentary he introduced the highlight, www.thenaturalhistoryproject.org.uk a work of art that is an entirely pseudo project museum. Wonderful. You must visit both that and his personal site, www.davidrichards.org.uk.
Below are a couple of examples, just to tempt you.
Stellatarum Giant Dragonfly
