- Demonstration of technical and visual skills – Materials, techniques, observational skills, visual awareness, design and compositional skills.
In this section i experienced a lot of emotional connections with the places and materials used. I tried to interact physically as well as intuitively to the surroundings. I feel that I’ve opened up to new possibilities and learned how place of being in can become part of the work produced. I’ve tried to use unconventional ways of creating a “drawing” through feelings, interaction and direct contact with media through chosen concept/idea. Overall composition for the final piece worked within the space it is located, but i believe it also will fit in a centre of a room.
- Quality of Outcome – Content, application of knowledge, presentation of work in a coherent manner, with discernment, conceptualisation of thoughts, communication of ideas.
Whole part helped to arrive at the final idea – starting by looking, then connecting with nature, using research and expanding the idea of drawing beyond flat picture frame. Quality of outcome – i tried to use found materials and recycle/reuse media in order to follow up with the research undertaken as well as implementing personal feeling about environmental conservation, animal issues and general over consumption. More practice will allow to use materials in a more finished manner, but personally i feel that they worked in this particular project.
- Demonstration of creativity – Imagination, experimentation, invention, development of a personal voice.
Overall I feel that my creativity is evolving as i start to use more of my imagination and let it out through the process and use of materials. My voice is starting to come through more , and i do feel it is time to let it out more and think less about what others might think ( this was an issue with some of the projects ) .
- Context – Reflection, research (evidenced in learning logs) critical thinking (evidenced in critical review).
I have documented my process in the blog, i feel it explains how i arrived to the final project even though i have changed my mind a few times. Staying critical is important as this helps to see “mistakes” or what could be changed later, hence plays part in the development of ideas. I have visited a few galleries where experiencing material world of installation helped to be a bit more brave and take a few risks for this project. Artist research is definitely finding it’s way into the process , i find myself using found information a lot more often than i was before.
