Construct your piece into your space in a way that allows the viewer to navigate themselves through your concepts and ideas. This can be through video, environmental design, installation, and other interventions. Some sections have been asked to place their “Expand” object within the site as a way to help communicate the overall process of arriving at the final piece.
From the selected site, create a piece inspired by that space’s physical and conceptual qualities. This can be as open as your want it to be. For example if you select a stairwell, perhaps an accordion folded book could become the format of your piece.
Due in class next week, Oct. 29
Pick a space (inside or out), within the confines of the streets surrounding the Design Center. Introduce the space next week in class as a new site for an installation, exploring its physical qualities and its nature within the site and art school. Larger themes could pop out of this space ( i.e. locker: security, control, boundaries). Make sure you spend time with the space, observe the aspects over time, what is interesting about that site and note everything from sound, scent, light, etc.
A. Diagram/mapping of the space, highlighting the qualities and/or themes you would like to explore.
B. Give a 15 minute presentation of the space and the reasons why you are interested in investigating that particular site.
