Historical Newspaper Article

Let me take you to the year 2075 and relive the historical events that have happened in Plymouth Life Centre. From the city's very own diver becoming an Olympic world medallist, to champions winning events and the centre becoming eco-green by having a new solar room installed. My newspaper article is all about the historical events that have happened in the Plymouth Life Centre throughout history,
represented in the futuristic context of a newspaper.

 

The newspaper focuses on the achievements, successes, developments, and a variety of events that took place. By looking at both old and contemporary newspapers, I have been able to design and create a futuristic style that might be shown when celebrating the history of the park in the coming times. The content was informed by archive articles and news that has been published throughout the years, developed in a way which suits the work. 

About the artist

Kieran Coleman 

I am a second-year Media Arts Student at The University Of Plymouth. I am specialising in Documentary Photography which I am always finding different ways to refine and challenge in the work I create. I have taken interest in photography for nearly five years and throughout this time, I have been able to do projects focusing on documentary, commercial and event photography. While also developing projects alongside different organisations. My main interest since the end of college has been to use my photography to help people who are going through some hard and difficult times, photography serves as a helping hand or, a visual piece which offers support. 

 

I have decided to focus on historical events as part of my project on Central Park by designing and creating a futuristic article based on Plymouth Life Centre. Taking inspiration from old articles and rewriting them in a futuristic context.
