Installation Proposals – part 2

Now that part 1 groups prepared and presented installation proposals to the class, it is time for the entire class to come together on one installation concept.  The goal of this next step is identify a clearly stated set of criteria for the installation that can facilitate a focused collaborative process. The more clearly you define what you collectively endeavor to create, the more likely you’ll accomplish it.

In preparation for continued group discussion about this issue during our field trip on Saturday,  individual students / student groups are required to submit a one sentence blog entry on each of the below items by noon on Friday 9/28.  Entries should be replies to this thread.  Names of all students who contributed to the statement should be listed in the blog entry.  The more students represented in one shared statement the better .  Since the building is open and no one has a school conflict, I recommend all students meet in the Donghia Gallery during class time tomorrow.

1. What is the intended emotional response to the artwork?

2. How does the artwork address specific conditions present in the Donghia Gallery?

3. What aspect of the John Cage composition should most directly influence the development of the artwork?

A photo of our notes from last class are below for reference.

    1. The intended emotional response to the art is a calm, disorienting, anticipation.

    The Art work creates an immersion of experience by blocking exterior light and view to the hall with vestibules marking defined points of entry and exit. Potentially using perforated areas in the blocking material to express something going on to the hallway and use of the glass wall as a mirror, with a dark material behind it.

    3. The pacing of the Cage piece, presence and absence of sound should be implied in the rhythm of the experience. Break and surge.

    1. The intended emotional response to the artwork should be calming, but at the same time raised curiosity.

    2. The artwork should be clearly separated from the outside hallway, but the glass wall should reveal something about the experience of the interior space (movement/light conditions/shadows).

    1.The installation should be connected to John Cage composition, not saying have to be follow by its rhythm but needs get the essence into our installation.

    2.The installation could be set up for a sequence of different phases than roaming in the space.

    3.If possible, it could be an interactive installation. Maybe the visitor’s movement triggers the next phase or more options.

  6. 1. I think the emotional response of the installation should invoke a peaceful state of mind; a space that one can escape from the empire state of mind….

    2. The installation should take advantage of the linear shape of the gallery by taking one on a journey AND use the glass (transparency or reflection) qualities.

    3. I think the rhythm of the John Cage piece is the strongest feature of the music- the intensity and breaks do not have a pattern therefore it keeps one’s interest.
