I have created these two info-gram showing the price change of 26 weeks from 26 fuel station in a 26 mile radius of my home. I have created these images to show that the only thing that changes is the price. The product is just a copy of the one before yet we are still willing to pay different prices for the same thing.
I ma exploring the idea of printing on something that isn't paper. I think a receipt would be a good idea, it draws context from my image and vice versa. I have created this brought draft to show visually my thinking.
I would like my image to be based around around the idea of the price change within the fuel industry. I will take a single image of a sample of fuel and reproduce this 26 times ( My Ruscha reference). I will then collate 26 prices of fuel changes of a 26 week period ( Ruscha reference).

I was inspired by Dejan Habicht and how he managed not only to show the connection with Rusha' work but he also got his image to tell a narrative in one image. The idea of using one image to portray a narrative is something I would like to explore in this micro project. I want to use my clean scientific approach to image making but still be able to show

But whilst looking at the images in this way ( documenting) and listening to the information provided, I couldn't help look for a meaning with
