Slinkachu Ideas.

In my last lesson we had to research an city artist called Slinkachu, where he uses little figures to create art and then leaves them there. we have now got to recreate our his work in a marketing campain for the college.

My ideas are as follows:
Location: A litter bin with the cigarette stubber on the top.
Scenario: Lil person sat on a cigarette butt.
Props needed: cigarette butt

Location: Table top in common room.
Scenario: Lil people, with lil table and chairs plaing cards.
Props needed: to make lil table and chairs.

Locaton: Keyboard in a Computer room
Scenario: A little person sat on the edge of a key with a laptop on his lap.
Props needed: Keyboard + lil laptop

Location: Canteen table
Scenario: A little person sat on a chip eating a bag of chips
Props needed: A large chip or two

Slinkachu (b. 1979) is a British street artist, photographer and blogger. He is best known for his Little People, in 2006 he has been installed at various locations in London. His art has been presented in a series of exhibitions in London and Norway.
Despite what his picture says, he would have had to actually write on the wall for this picture.i like this shot for the humour of what is written on the wall,
 For this bizarre shot he wouldn't need many large props, just extra detail to some very small tenticles.
 The only props he would have had to use would have been the coffee cup and the toy track, creating a humourous scene of things which would actually happen.

The difference between traditional and digital photography is that you have to use light sensitive paper with a film and chemicals but with digital there is a sensor instead of film.

How are digital image files stored and played on a computer?
