PROJECT 5 (Option 1)

SEQUENCE

OBJECTIVES

Create a visual artwork that uses aspects of sequence.

 

What the heck do we mean by sequence?

“juxtaposed pictorial and other images in deliberate
sequence, intended to convey information and/or produce an aesthetic response.”

 

Here are some aspects of sequence that you can think about:

THINKING ABOUT TIME

 

The potential for transformation is a key component of sequence, narrative, story-telling...transformation requires a sequence of events, and the passage of some increment of time (could be years, days, seconds, or the blink of an eye.)

Or maybe you could create a system or set of rules / chance factors for yourself to generate sequence/s?

You can use clarity or deliberately discard it.
(key word: deliberately.)

TYING IT ALL TOGETHER

 

So, we're thinking about aesthetics and how they generate narratives...I encourage you to reflect on the skills you've learned and used throughout this class. 

 

  • Visual Communication, Conciseness (Pun)

  • Observation, Documentation, Investigation (Acts of Beauty)

  • Reality-based Details and Specifics (Confession)

For a moment ask yourself,
How does your art and your life connect?
