“Red Paperclip” by Nicholas Sardo (2014)

For my trade-up project, I started with a weird galvanized nail. I traded that for a full pack of gum, which I exchanged for a half full can of spray paint, then a 3/4 full can of a different kind of spray paint, then finally for a brand new paint marker. Here’s the tumblr I made for my items: http://iamnardo.tumblr.com/DSC_1198

For the semester-long ‘red paperclip’ project, I started with a small black binder clip.  I traded this for a hand-written sign, which I quickly traded for two pieces of mint gum.  I held onto the gum until presented with a trade for 10 ft. of multicolored duct tape.  I crafted this tape into a duct tape wallet.  I traded the duct tape wallet for a leather wallet and a name tag, which is where I now stand with my trades.

For this project, each student was given an object of very little monetary value. We were then supposed to trade up for things of greater value. I started with a miniature bungee cord and ended with an official Carnegie Mellon campus police whistle. You can see all of my in-between trades here: www.tumblr.com/blog/watchhannahtrade

“Presentation of Works” by Sam Ticknor (2014)

For the final project, students were asked to present their sophomore reviews. Although I completed my  review last year, I used the opportunity to think critically about my practice and re-do my website/artist statement/resume.

My presentation of works contains notes:

Documentation of the red paper clip project can be found here.

This project was a failure for me. Initially excited about trading, I quickly traded by Bert figurine for half of a cigarette, which I knew I would be in demand once my roommates got home. Shortly after, I traded the cigarette for a mini lighter, which I lost after a few days.

“Sleep-In: A Tactical Collaboration” by Sarah (2014)

On Tuesday, March 4, 2014, a group of 6 female CMU students found the best place on campus for a quick nap: on the floor in front of the Office of the Dean. Planned as a demonstration to confront the stress culture at Carnegie Mellon University, the peaceful act quickly caught the attention of the administration in the offices at either end of the small hallway, as well as those who sought access to the nearby elevator. An equally bewildered, flustered, and attentive Dean of Student Affairs met the students at their napping space. When the students responded to her questions by stating that they were not protesting, that they ‘fell asleep’ in the space while studying, the Dean asked the students if they would accompany her to her office, one floor downstairs. The naps resulted in a meeting held after Spring Break, which the students attended as did the University’s Dean of Student Affairs and Vice Provost.

Cave of the Clive

In this project we focused on providing an experience for our subject through a breach of privacy and narrative. We used cameras to document the daily activities of the subject and narrated their actions aloud as if we were inside a wildlife documentary, essentially we made a mockumentary of a national geographic work. We understand that this project may have many different connotations; animal rights, student life, etc. However, what we chose to focus on was the breach of privacy in a public space; we followed our subjects through their interactions with others, often leading to humiliating situations. We further invaded this privacy by publishing he documentary on DVD.

“Galleromp” by Sarah Croop and Sam Ticknor (2014)

We led participants to believe that they were providing user feedback for our application, Galleromp. Galleromp is an application designed to integrate a digital experience into a physical walk through an area. Specifically, Galleromp was designed to point out and provide information on public murals in the Strip District. However, while discovering the public works in the area, our users were surprised to find us at points along the path, prompting them to contribute their own work to the public space via drawings, performances, and story telling. Galleromp was a journey meant to spark conversation between similar experiences in the digital and physical world.
