FINAL DIRECTION CONTRACT

ARTC 321 Contract due Tuesday, April 1st

Final Due by class time Tuesday, April 29th

Final critique Tuesday, April 29th and Thursday, May 01st

 

CONTRACT (DUE 4/1)

TYPE a contract that contains your goal for a final project.  The contract will cover the following four points:

 

1) Your concept or idea behind your work (this may naturally change, but keep me up to date).

2) Any formal considerations (For example, you may want to work with texture or color.)

3) Method of output and how many.  (For example, installation, prints (what kind?), light box, screen, etc.)

4) Technical considerations, if any (Some examples: frame or mat board, how big will your files be and how will you deal with that, or how will you build a light box) 

5) How many images (or boxes, or whatever) you plan to make.  You must argue to support your numbers.  An average number to shoot for is around 6 to 8 images.

 

This work may build on or be an extension of you midterm, or may be an entire new body of work.

 

JOURNAL      

In your journal write anything you want me to know about your work.  Include sketches or initial ideas.  You must at least explain your work.

 

TURN IN (4/29)

  1. Photocopy of journal
  2. Digital copy of you images

Leave your images in the Final folder on  MAC Blinn (Eber->ARTC321-> Final->YOURNAME) In it, put all images

Images should be tif (.tif extension), flattened, no channels or wet layers, and not more than around 2 MB.

  1. Display your final objects.  Those not displayed on 4/29 will be displayed on 5/1.

 

ON THE FINAL DAY

The final will be in room 1024 and we will view OBJECTS (not digital projections) unless you make specifications in your contract with reasons why you are choosing digital projection AND I OK it.  Slide projections or installations count as objects.

 

The Final will take two days, but all work is due on April 29th.  Everyone must attend both critiques, even if you already presented your work.  Absence from a midterm or final critique will lower your grade by one.
