I just found out that my mid-semester Skype review will be at 2:45pm EST today (8:45pm my time). Wish me luck!
This morning I had a nice conversation with Jona Gudvardardottir about my piece. She mentioned a lot of things, but one in particular was that I need to decide whether or not to allow people to view it in the round. While I do think the silhouettes that happen (see pic below) are pretty neat, I don’t think allowing people to walk behind this piece furthers my so-called “agenda,” if you will. Light is a major component of the installation, and if I let people wander behind they’ll have an experience other than the one I’ve intended. So, I need to figure out a non-obtrusive way to block off the open spaces on either side of the work. Any ideas?
Jona also recommended I check out an Icelandic artist’s work – Ruri. If you have time, you might want to take a look; some of it’s pretty interesting. (My favs are “Moderation” and “Dedication.”)
