Tutorial feedback was incredibly helpful, I feel like my project makes a lot of sense now and I really am starting to think about the idea of having my work as a performance based piece really strong and important.
Monday 14th March
Have you followed up the research I suggested in the last tutorial?
This week look at Stuart Mc.adam http://stuartmcadam.com/
Paul Veroude – https://artwisecurators.com/exhibitions/19-view-suspended-2-mercedes-benz-world-2010/overview/ Jean Tinguely https://www.tate.org.uk/art/artists/jean-tinguely-2046 Kinetic art – https://artincontext.org/kinetic-art/ Bruce Gilchrist – http://www.d6culture.org/bruce-gilchrist.html
Have you followed up on the advice I suggested in the last tutorial?
Do all and any recordings – yes
Document the recording process – no or didn’t show me anything
Obviously ask for permission where and when needed – yes
Get into audio software – audacity and start playing with the recordings – no or didn’t say you had
Keep the AC in mind as you work, so it is integral to the development of the project and not an after thought
Talk to Tim?
Are you up to date with your notebook?
Where are you at with the HOME project?
Had several recordings – self analysis with which I agreed:
No crescendo or ending or narrative curve
Quality not great
Tried using 2 recorders
Not easily relatable to home
So we discussed:
Having different audio recordings of different areas of the bike – then maybe using different speakers attached to those areas of the bike
Having a bike, your black bike in a fixed position on a stand
On black plinth or hung up, we have 5 black plinths available
We discussed it having a level of theatricality
We discussed it as a live performance – on stage or in a public thoroughfare
We discussed it being a 3 hour performance
Start with it stripped ending with it made
Then ride off!
Bags and all equipment for a bike ride, tour in place, around the bike, packed with precision
Dress in black, black gloves, black stand, black bike
Foyer outside great hall or theatre or downstairs foyer
H&S issues to be approved
An authentic experience and performance
We discussed you having an assistant
Light weight white table with black cloth – ironed! – over it
You left energized…with clarity!
Feedback for week 7:
Speed up, really push the project these next 3 weeks, 16 + hours a week on this project so that you can volunteer for the TAKEOVER and tweak the work and not be in a panic and rushed state at the end
