Tuesday Bellringer • What is one thing you learned during our coffee stain project? • Once you are done you will be taking a couple notes: the subject line of your notes is: Installation art. • Overarching question: What is installation art?
Installation art: What is it? Two or Three-dimensional works designed to transform the perception of a space.
Installation arts purpose… • Installation art takes into account a broader sensory experience, instead of just displaying square objects on a wall. • This attempts to make more of a connection between art and life. • What might I mean when I say to make a connection between art and life?
Installation art • Installation art can be either temporary or permanent. • Installation artworks have been constructed in exhibition spaces such as museums and galleries, as well as public and private spaces.
Installation art • Installation art incorporates a broad range of everyday and natural materials, including video, sound and performance. Many installations are site-specific IE: they are designed to exist only in the space for which they were created.
Rebecca Ward • Rebecca Ward is an installation artist from Austin Texas.
How has this artist used LINE to make this a more interactive space?
Do you think you might be able to change the feel of a space in the school through just tape like Rebecca Ward?
Your assignment: • Make a group with your table mates. • We should have around 4-5 people in each group- you might need to spread out if you have more than that. • You will be making a 4ft x 4ft installation with colored tape with your group. • Today you will decide how you want people to feel when they look at your space or pass by your space. Come up with feelings (emotions) that you want people to use when they describe the experience. • Begin to sketch out some lines that go along with your “feeling or emotion” so you can start your planning process tomorrow. • Work on your sketchbook once you’re done (due Friday)
Exit Slip • How did the beads I put in the doorway change the feeling of the room?
