I had my first tutorial last week and its taken me a long time to digest everything and actually do any work. Here is a copy of my tutorial form, its a bit of a mish mash but its the best i could do today:
“Camberwell College of Arts
MA Visual Arts Course 2008-09
TUTORIAL REPORT & FEEDBACK FORM
Student to complete this and email to tutor or place a copy in the staff mailbox within one week of a tutorial / feedback request
Pathway: Digital art
Name: Ina Dorthea Thuressson Date: 24.09.09
Look at: Richard Wright – ecoloops.org – later see if I can have a chat with head of printmaking Fin Taylor who works with butterflies too
Time management: Don’t panic – Split the days /week so that some times are designated to doing research and other to the exhibition in Norway – Find a way to integrate the ma project with the exhibition
Project/Ideas: Find new ways to develop the work : movement. – Maybe use the webstie in a more direct way. I have never worked with programming but I think I’ll have to dive in. – can adding words to the website maybe change the look of the animation, making it interactive. – look in to psychology of why we think certain things are disgusting. Maybe look in to other contrasting things, not just bisgusting/beautiful. – Have a look at other people’s research in to the subject matter.”
After my tutorial i sat down and wrote down all the different ideas i had about the work now. I always wanted to make something interactive i just always thought it would be to complicated but i guess now is the best time to start, being on a Digital Arts course and everything.
(bare in mind i dont have any idea how to do any of these things or if its even possible)
So the website could feed the animation directly, adding a word to the list could change it.
-i still want the animation to look like my work, only moving. The movement can be different things, the individual objects could move or grow, the drawing can be animated, and a whole part of the picture can move, like looking threw a kaleidoscope.
– adding a word to the list would make the object appear in the animation or make it bigger, the image could like grow or replace something else.
– i want it all to be on a loop, so maybe a base animation can be created and as new things are added they become part of the loop.
– adding more and more images would make the lesser used or older images smaller or go further back and eventually disappear, so that the movement can go on forever without being cluttered.
-OR adding a word will make that particular thing move, or it would change the speed of the animation
-In my original project proposal i wanted to work with time lapse, i would like to find a way to integrate that in to the work as well, at least give it a good try.
I still want the work to be overwhelming, no matter how i end up making it i want the final piece to bit big and beautiful. I also want to experiment with physically mirroring the work.
or something like that.
