CRITIQUE DUE DATE: Monday 04/30 (gallery) + Wednesday 05/02 (classroom)
PROJECT TITLE: Open Concept (Final)
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Create a new piece of 4D art responding to the conceptual goals of your choosing.
You are required to use at least one of the concepts/techniques/approaches we have seen in class, but feel free to supplement your work with techniques from your previous knowledge, or research and experiment with a new approach. Works will be viewed in the gallery on Monday and the classroom on Wednesday, so I will assign your critique date based on your proposal.
This is your final project for this class and will be worth 20% of your final grade. Use this project as an opportunity to take risks, try something new, and build on what you have learned in this course.
PROPOSAL: Before you begin on your project, write a one page (double-spaced) proposal for your open concept assignment. Outline your conceptual goals, provide details for materials, equipment, and techniques you plan to employ, define final format / size, and cite any references or preliminary stylistic / historical / cultural research you have done. A hard copy of your proposal is due at the beginning of class on Monday 04/23 and we will discuss them individually.
DIGITAL SKETCHBOOK REQUIREMENTS: As you work on your projects, post the following on your blog prior to critique…
- project ideation (a paragraph about your ideas and conceptual goals before you begin work, research, sketches, work-in-progress images, etc.)
- self-critique (a paragraph evaluating your project against your goals, and noting areas for improvement)
