PROJECT 8

GALLERIES GALLERIES GALLERIES
This week: Kory Khojasteh

I think sometimes art can get out to be more than what it is.  And maybe this might be one of those cases.

Architecture Loading……..

This week has probably been the worst week of projects. I have never given such bad grades before on projects before. The main reason for this? NO SCREENSHOTS!!! After a week of working (I hope you guys have been working) on your projects we wanted to see your progress! That was the project for this week. We need physical evidence of this, not just your word! Other than that many of you did a great job on analyzing the reading of Eva and Franco. I am always happy to see the eclectic amount of responses to them and see what you feel about them. Since I am so sad at giving such bad grades, I don’t have too much to say…. Here are my favorite VLOGS and SKETCHES of the week…

Screenshot FAIL

I dont know why there are so many people who didnt have any screenshots of their progress of their VR galleries, or people just not doing the project. P8 was to show us how you have been doing on your VR installation projects so far and let us know if you are having any difficulties. How can you show us your progress so far without any screenshots?

P7 – Shark Tank

So this week I got to take a look at where everyones going with their galleries and I have to say that I am REALLY impressed. Almost everyone was prepared with sketches and a really clear idea of where they were going with their design. You guys did an awesome job of thinking outside the box, and thought, not only about the basic design, but you all considered how to display the work. Read more »

Shark Tank… NOM NOM NOM….

I could not come up with a good title so I thought this was a great idea since were munching up ideas during our shark tank meetings. I have to say that I was pretty impressed with a lot of the groups creative ideas in representing their artists’ work. U saw some amazing sketches and ideas being bounced off of one another a lot. All in all, I would say the meetings were successful for most of you because seeing your vlogs I could see a lot of the ideas you had either really stuck or inspired most. I can’t wait to see all of your actual architectures soon! Should be exciting!

The Meeting and Writing on Some Fantastical Artists.

As I experienced last semester, sometimes getting in touch with your artist can be a kind of painful experience. You are talking to these wonderful artists or performers who have incredibly busy schedules. So not only do you have to worry about making plans and deciding on a location, you also have to worry about what to ask them and how you will manage to show off their art in Secondlife and how it will impact your grade. This is why, despite some set backs and resulting extensions, I am so proud of my students these past two weeks for doing all that they could do and sometimes more to prove that they will work hard at this project.

“Sometimes art isn’t all fun and games” – Lizzie Chan

This week was catalog essay week and as the title suggests, not everyone had fun with it. Lizzie seems to have more fun with other projects but writing essays are not her favorite. I’m sure a lot of students felt like that this week.

Below i will display the group’s catalog essay as well as what they as individuals succeeded at the best.

An Essay in an Art Class, WTF?

I’m pretty sure there were mixed reviews on writing an essay for this past weeks’ project. Some were rejoicing (because they rock at writing essays) or some (like me) were not rejoicing because writing is not our strong point. I was really proud of all the essays I read though. Grammatical errors are bound to pop up from time to time, but other than that Read more »

Artist visits FTW!!

This week’s project is one of my all time favorites because i love the idea of going to meet an artist in the flesh and getting to talk to them and learn who they are. A website gives you a lot of information on what they have done but it takes a visit to their studio or a face to face interview to fully understand who they are and what they are trying to say/accomplish with their work.

For my group of students, two artists came through for them this week: Carol Hummel and Ryan Mcintosh.
