Summary

Create 8 (or a different number we agree on in your contract, depending on your method) images that are a body of work and will be printed and displayed in an alternative or traditional way. All images wil be matted, one will be framed.

I want you to focus on content first, and then perfect a technique or techniques that you need in order to make these successful images.



Objectives

To continue to develop a personal imaging aesthetic and voice
To continue to perfect your understanding of prints
To develop a final body of work and understand what that means
To develop specific techniques related to individual goals


Methodology

PART I
Contract
Write a contract that specifies
1. The idea or content behind this body of work.
2. Your aesthetic approach (Digital painting, drawing, collage,photography, etc.)
3. Your output goal, or how many images you will make. This is related to your working method.


PART II
Images
You will create 8 (or a different number we agree on, depending on your method) images that go together as a "body" of work. By this I mean that they are related in content and aesthetics and read together as a series. The content should, but does not need to be, an extension of your midterm.

PART III
Prints
Print all works in your final at the size that is appropriate to your work. Matt each work and frame one, both as explained in class.



Submission Requirements

PART I, Contract
Submit to canvas on the due date.

PART II, Images
Create a folder with your name on it in the Final folder in the class folder. Put your 8 (or agreed number) images in this folder. No image should be greater than 5 MB and should be tiff or jpg format.

PART III, Prints
Bring your completed prints, all matted and one framed, to class on the due date and we will have our critique from the prints.
