PROJECT 2

ANONYMOUS ACT
OF BEAUTY

OBJECTIVE

 

We are creating a work of art that is affective, anonymous, and 'beautiful.'

 

Criteria:​

  1. Must be Anonymous.

  2. You must document it (ANONYMOUS).

  3. Your documentation can be a photo or series of photos, a short video, or a written statement that fully describes your action (you can get poetic with it).

  4. Push yourself outside of your comfort zone.

  5. Must submit a written reflection about the process (2 paragraphs min - 1-page max), including your inspirations and influences including artists/artwork. (You can include photos.)

WHAT DOES THIS LOOK LIKE?​


Think about where you are.

What are the resources are around you?

Can your work be site-specific,
meaning it resides and interacts with
the environment its in...

or can it exist anywhere?

Who is your demographic?

Age, Class, Race...?

Human or Non-Human?

Will it be interactive?

What about time? 

Ephemeral Art

"under a concept of transience in time"

aka. non-permanent, perishable, temporary.

Observe your surroundings. Consider your audience. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...can you make something that affects someone else?

It's a no go!

No: Rock stacking, Chalk Drawing/Writing, Plagiarism (cite your sources), Illegal Stuff / Be Mindful of Potential Damage

Push yourself!

Make work that you want to make, work that means something to you, not just fulfilling an assignment
