“Art about art”

Artists,Reference,Uncategorized — carolinavogt @ 6:01 pm

I was reading articles about Art Basel and found Zin Taylor, and immediately thought about the conversation we had about “art thats about art”. I think he serves as a pretty good example of this type of work:

Music and Dyeing Techniques

Artists,Reference — Jean Kwon @ 2:32 am

Before anything, I need to settle on the sounds I want the speakers to play. I tried to think of the sensation I wanted people to feel when walking through this tunnel of fabric. I don’t want to recreate an existing atmosphere, I want to let people experience an atmosphere they have never experienced before. While browsing through ambient sounds in youtube, I ran into a video 10 Hours Rainfall. It’s a video playing sounds of rainfall for 10 hours. I thought it would be unusual for people to experience a rainfall in a dry setting. They would be just hearing but not actually feeling the rainfall.

In terms of dyeing the fabric, I think I will use the Shibori dyeing technique. Here are some images done in Shibori teachnique.

Or I might end up doing the simple dyeing technique. Much like the image below.

Some of the dyeing techniques used for the textile used for a runway show also seems to create a beautiful atmosphere.

Claymation

Artists,Reference — Sam Ticknor @ 1:43 pm

I would like to go in a direction towards a claymation animation for my final project. While researching artists working in this medium, I came across some really amazing work by Allison Schulnik. The movement in the clay reminds me a bit of ‘Baby Snakes’.

Here is her website, she also does painting and sculpture work:

Below are some screenshots from her films:

Researching On Final

Artists,Reference — Jean Kwon @ 12:57 pm

For the final project, I’m planning on continuing my studies on fabric speakers. I looked at several artists for visual and conceptual inspiration. Janet Cardiff recently did a project called Forest where she installed more than 30 speakers in a forest, each speaker emitting “near synchronicity of natural or mediated sounds” (Gregory Volk).

I also looked at David Tudor’s Rainforest collection. This music collection was of “endangered” sounds we would hear in rainforest. It is said that “the result is a timeless sonic environment full of rech textures offering the listener an infinite variety of aural densities and spatial effects. Intensely alive and unlimited” (mode 64).

It seems that to distinguish this fabric speaker as an art piece, having a conceptual idea would be very important. Otherwise, it would just become another form of speaker. I thought about what kind of sound I would want the speakers to make. I think it would be smart to play sounds that would add to the characteristics of the fabric speaker, which is soft and small. Like whispers of sound and music.

Visually, I’ve been inspired by Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s The Gates piece. The color, texture, and the instillation seemed visually so beautiful.

I’ve also looked at Robin Minard‘s works. His work is the most closely related to mine where he installed vines of speakers on the wall. His work somewhat imitates how ivy would grow on the walls. Visually, I thought his work was also simple yet captivating.

Final Project proposal

Assignment,Description,Reference,Theory — Sam Ticknor @ 12:36 pm

The general theme of my final project is human interaction with others.

I know that I want to make a video piece but I have two ideas on the subject matter.

One idea, is based off of the mathematical Ramsey Theory, specifically the impact of Ramsey theory on the Theorem on friends and strangers, which can be read about here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theorem_on_friends_and_strangers.

I was thinking either embroidering or molding the heads and making the video piece of the lines being stitched, or tied.

 

My other idea was to create, using molding, knotting, and sewing, a 3D environment that is just as detailed and particular at a large scale as it is at a small scale. I would then incorporate a similar idea to my knotting project, and bring in some animals and humans to interact with each other and  the environment. I would film this experiment.

Another really cool embroidery artist: Emily Katz

Really really beautiful embroidered illustrations.

Does work on several types of fabrics and also embroiders material like paper, which allows her to incorporate watercolors and other materials not as suited for fabric pieces.
