The class was separated into two. The Wrappers and the wrapped. It was interesting to how we used Clingwrap differently for this exercise, wrapping ourselves together versus the usual wrapping of food.
Tension was then introduced in the later part of the exercise, where we were forced to stand closer to one another in order for this element of tension to be present in the group. The people who were wrapped then tried to create more tension by going in different directions, which ultimately we were then forced again to move back to our original proximity with one another as the cling wrap was too strong.
A short exercise in class where we were given a chosen object and asked to interact with it. It’s interesting to see how everyone interacted with the objects without being told what specifically to do, and for most cases, it was instinctive.
“The Butterfly Dress” is a technology incorporated dress that has 40 fabric butterflies attached to it that can flutter and fly when its sensors are activated, either when a person comes close or when it is controlled via a mobile device.
“Many of us will overlook the mundane, everyday objects we see in our day-to-day; such a concept is exactly what photographer Charles Pétillon chose to explore in his latest series called ”INVASIONS.”” The white balloons are a metaphor to change the way we see our everyday objects.
“Crystal Universe” is an interactive art piece that involves the movement of the viewer. 60,000 LEDs are suspended in the 3D space. When a viewer steps into the space, a change is seen in the lights in the entire space and this change will continue to be indefinite with the viewer at the core.
To me, the moment where I feel like I am executing best is when the work I am doing is something I am passionate about, and that momentum keeps me going in the flow. For this particular event that I was involved in, what kept me motivated was the desire to make the event as good as possible, as it represented the school on a national level.
Time is a reflection. It is essential to grasp the right momentum for the work piece we work on; if it’s too slow viewers would be bored, if it’s too fast viewers may miss out on the full experience of the work.
