w07 - Research Presentation

Post by glegrady » Mon Apr 02, 2012 6:46 pm

This assignment is focused on information sharing and review of what we have covered. Choose one of the following:

1) Select an artist or art movement of your choice based on what we have covered in the course. Movements may include Futurism, Constructivism, Dadaism, Conceptualism, Minimalism, or anything of such nature. Do a presentation of approximately 10 PowerPoint slides or images. Instead of PPT you may just have 10 images to show but do discuss why the artist or movement is of interest to you.

2) Make a technical presentation of how to do something in Photoshop that we have not yet covered but that which is of interest to you, or something that you have learned from outside the course.

Lets discuss during our May 17 individual meeting, so that I can give you the "go ahead".

I did my presentation on Ed Ruscha. He was part of the Pop Art Movement, and what originally interested me about him were his noisy/blurry images that we used as reference for the noise assignment. In this presentation, a majority of the 10 images were his "stain" pieces, which incorporated various creative media.

I did my project on Dadaism which was a cultural movement that began in Zurich, Switzerland, which emerged from negative reactions to the horrors of World War I. The Dada movement was characterized by a deliberate irrationality and the rejection of the prevailing standards of art. Dada was was anti-art.

I did my research presentation project on the famous American artist, Gordon Matta-Clark. His work primarily focuses on the idea of "anarchitecture" and challenging the perceptions of his environment. He is most famous for his "building cuts" and also started a restaurant in SoHo, New York, called Food.
