ASSIGNMENT 1, YOUR ART
Your Work (1a) DUE Thursday. August 28th
Write-up (1b) DUE Tuesday, September 09th
YOUR WORK (1a):
Bring examples of your art to class that best illustrates your current focus or direction. You may store your work on HomeworkEber on Blinn, bring a CD or ZIP disk with images, prints, or other media, but work must be ready for display on August 28th. Each student will present his or her work to the class with the intention of expanding your current vision or finding a new one. Only bring a few works, no more than can be covered in 5-10 minutes. This will not be a formal critique, rather it will be a way for you to show the class and myself where you are and hopefully aid in your focus.
After reviewing your work, TYPE a short (1-2 pages) write-up that contains the following:
1) Your current artistic and technical focus and how that applies to imaging.
2) At least two artists whose work you identify with on some level. These artists can inspire you artistically, conceptually, technically, or any other way you can think of. See the Electronic Art and Animation Catalogue (EAAC) for SIGGRAPH 2003 on Blinn->ARTC400 or on Reserve at the Library. Also see Photography after Photography (Amelunxen), which is also on reserve at the library. To see other exhibitions, go to www.siggraph.org and click on the art and design link.
BONUS: Include pictures from the artists you refer to.
