I decided to go with a mixture of two project ideas, with a little bit of a kick. I mixed the group knuckle crack idea with the video compilation idea. Not only that but I also played with music and how different music changes your interpretation of a subject. I decided to make four videos, one without music and three with. Have a look for yourself and tell me how you feel.
Everydayness – The Walk of Life:
For Monday’s class please remove work from the walls and make sure your space is clean.
By 8am Monday you must have the following projects completed (this has slightly changed from what was discussed in class):
1. Everyday Activity: Pick one piece (from the many experiments) and commit to it. Complete this artwork, finalize documentation, and display in the space. You should have one fully realized piece of work from this assignment.
2. Time Piece (an object/piece that ceases to exist): Please continue or redo (if this was discussed in class) your time piece. We expect a final work on display Monday morning. Make sure to document the project and think about final display.
Both assignments must be completed and fully realized. You will be evaluated on the quality of the work and it must be finished on time (no late or unresolved work). The work on display Monday morning will be the work that is considered for your grade.
Key things to consider: form(s) of documentation, setting, remnants, objects, action, display, symbols, research, subject matter, investigation, decision making, collecting, and going beyond what you know.
Come to class with sketchbooks, any paper you have available, and writing/drawing materials. Be ready to work.
Final assignments will be announced Monday during class.
Please send Sarah and me any questions you have regarding the assignments.
Have a great week!
