By Wednesday, March 26, you must do individual research on the web (in addition to the readings I've already given you) and write a proposal for your piece. We will then divide the class into four sub-groups, grouping people with similar topics together.
This must include At least 3 links to informational websites that assist in the content of the piece and/or imagery that you've gathered for potential inclusion in the piece. You must have a method of presenting this research to the group (i.e. HTML page with the links, print outs, bookmarks, etc.) Your group will need to compile these URLS and email them to me that day. I will then put these links on our class website.
Type up a proposal for your project. Include a description of the imagery and/or sound. Describe the concept (what this is an exploration of, what you are expressing) in paragraph form. Your concept should be clearly expressed. BE SURE TO USE PROPER GRAMMAR AND CHECK SPELLING! You will present your idea to your classmates and discuss it in depth with your group. Email me your proposal prior to start of class or bring a hard copy with you.
On Monday, March 31 a professional, neatly designed heirarchial chart outlining your art site structure is due. Be sure to show all of the different possible paths within your piece. This must be clear and clean.
On Wednesday, April 2 you will meet with your group and confirm and expand on your ideas. You should think of how you want to unify your works, and what type of Main page will allow the most freedom of expression. Consider setting parameters such as color palette, size, or font usage to make the pages unified.
The entire piece is due on MONDAY, April 7.
