Week 7, 4-8 May 2020
A busy week involving digital class, writing a project plan for the participatory art project, IPO revision due to impact of Covid-19, formative critique, artist talk by Rachel Rakena, essay writing and lots of Zoom meetings.
1. DIGITAL CLASS
This week we learnt assembling and editing in Premier. I videoed my daughter making the installation above and hope to edit this and present it on Friday formative session. We will see how difficult the editing process is!
2. PARTICIPATORY ART PROJECT
I have written a project plan for the participatory art project.
At present I am waiting for 5-10 volunteers from the parish of St Albans and will then set a date that suits everyone. A neighbour has agreed to video the installation and parish members have provided photographs and a book that tells the history of the parish. I have received ethics forms from Martin Patrick required by Massey to be completed when doing a participatory art project. I will complete these and distribute to participants.
3. REVISED IPO
4. FORMATIVE CRITIQUE 300 and 400 level critique. Presentation and assessment of the formative critique are on week 8 blog.
5. ARTIST TALK - RACHEL RAKENA To be complete
6. FINE ARTS RESEARCH - ASSIGNMENT 2
Handed in a draft of the essay to Kingsley for review. Am concerned that my initial focus of new materiality has expanded to include memories, semiotics, participatory projects and filmmaking. It all feels too much, as if the horses have bolted from the stables.
7. ART IN CONTEXT DISSEMINATION STRATEGY - ASSIGNMENT 2 Eugene proposed the video documentation of the St Alban's participatory project is not the dissemination strategy but the production strategy of an artwork. This confused me because I thought the participatory project was a dissemination strategy in its own right as well as being the artwork. Maybe the video will become an artwork in and of itself. Too complex - my head hurts.
