Week of 10/17 Part 2 – Assignment

This coming week in our class on 10/24 we will engage in our class Collaboration project #1 .

This is a studio work session / reflective exercise based class.

Students will chose to bring in the materials of their choice (not mandatory but you may choose to, and if so, I suggest dry media) to start, complete and present their group pieces during this class session. If you have a lap top computer, this would be a good class to bring it to (not mandatory but may prove useful).

This class project is generated, presented and critiqued in immediacy all in one class session. We will record our process and results by publishing them to our class blog.

*DUE on 10/24: Thesis / Research paper outline. Please e-mail your work to me or print out a copy and bring it to class. A synopsis for each criteria listed in the class writing template here.

 

*Historical Collaborations – Take a look at some of these examples over the course of your week. Bring any ideas that you have to class.

Class Collaboration Statements & Reactions.

In class on 11/15/16 students presented their class collaboration pieces.

Broken up into two groups, each group will now:

  1. Apply their group’s collaborative statement about their piece. What was the driving idea or concept that led to the creation of the actual art work?
  2.  Each group will add their reaction to the opposite group’s presentation and works. What do you see? Is the art work successful? Explain.

Statements and reactions will be posted here in the comments section below.

Each group is responsible for e-mailing me photographic or video documentation of the works generated by their group.

What is a Manifesto and why is it important to write one?

On 9/27/16 we will dig into the definition of a manifesto as a class. Students will generate experimental manifestos and later post them below.

According to merriam-webster.com : “a manifesto is written statement that describes the policies, goals, and opinions of a person or group” This is usually made public to hold one to their statements.”

Examples we will look at::

Manifestos & Remix Fairness

Manifestos & Remix Fairness, A Closer Look.

9/29/15

My friend and colleague Michael Branson Smith shared this great piece with our CT101 class this week – “Andy Baio is a software developer for Kickstarter writes and speaks about his experience being sued by a photographer and is forced to settle and pay thousands of dollars. This is despite the fact he believes the law is on his side and so does his pro-bono counsel the EFF.”

Question :: What do think? How has this presentation solidified or changed your point of view or awareness on the subject of remix and reuse culture? How does this information effect the way you promote yourself as an artist on the web?
