Today I went to Manchester Museum to look at the Egyptology exhibition to gain primary research for 'The Body' project.
I was wowed by how well the mummies exhibited were preserved.
Some were from around 700 BC! I loved looking at the mummies, their tombs, all the egyptian artifacts and reading about the mummification process and why the Egyptians thought it so important to preserve certain bodies. I think my visit has really helped me gain a better understanding of Egyptian Mummies and I feel a lot more confident with my project now I've gained this knowledge.
These are a few photographs I took at the exhibition.
They're not very good quality because you weren't allowed to take photographs and the woman looked scary, wasn't getting on the wrong side of her! haha.
These are the thumbnails for the photography section of my website portfolio. I'm only going to do eight per section so you get the gist of what I want each page to do. These are just screen shots from Dreamweaver because they all had to be saved in .htm format. I'm going to use lightbox so when you click on each image it will enlarge in a new window...
Now to create thumbnails for my 'Portfolio' section of my website.
I'm only going to import images for the 'Photography' section as Thomas said its presenting the idea that counts. Due to the time limit and my adventurous designing I'm going to use 'Lightbox' to display my images instead of the scrollbar at the bottom as shown in my wireframes. I think it'll look just as good!
I was reading through an article of what makes a successful design homepage & I came across the suggestion of customising your 'error 404' page so that people visiting your website don't just press back and go elsewhere like the majority of people do.
I found this website of '36 cool custom error 404 pages', what a great idea...
These are some drawings I did when we visited the RVI. I thought the experience was brilliant but quite surreal seeing all the preserved body parts in jars. I couldn't believe there was a preserved cyclops baby! I didn't know that was actually possible...
