In-class writing exercise
How does your choice of material conceptually relate to your plans for your finished project?
Sand. I choose sand to help reflect my idea of home, what reminds me of my home, and what makes it unique.
Can you refine or revise your decision about materials to help clarify your project to your viewer?
If anything I need something more to help clarify my concept to the viewer. (which ended up being a map, artifact, and timeline)
Do you have a title for the project? If so, why did you choose this title? If not, what could it be and why?
Off the top of my head, “home.” or “welcome home.” I feel like that could also be too blunt/self-explanatory. I don’t usually title pieces.
Do you have a clear idea of how the viewer will see your final work? explain your plan, and elaborate on it to make a stronger idea for the final install.
If I do an image with my sand block I’ll probably hang the image on a wall with the block on a pedal stool infront of it. If it’s two objects I’ll probably place them next to each other.
Are there parts of your projects that feel unclear? If so, list them below so you can clearly articulate what you are struggling with. Write one short plan of action you can take to remedy the issue.
What to do as a companion piece for my project. Ideas so far include: photos, objects, timeline or a map.
