Final project ideas will be discussed in class on TUES APRIL 25, but it is a good idea to think ahead and have a plan for your final work. Plan ahead to use last week of class as work time on your final experimental mixed-media work. Read below for some possible choices. Bring what you need to make best use of class time. Please consider: Will you revisit an earlier assignment in your final digital mixed-media project? What materials and techniques will you use? What subject or theme or ideas will you explore? What do you need to purchase to gather materials needed? What will your step by step process be? Do you need to use the classroom printer or mixed-media work areas to finish this project?
FINAL PROJECT CHOICES / Digital Mixed-Media
Art2016 Final Projects must integrate the concept of DIGITAL ART MIXED-MEDIA. Your approach may use tactile materials or traditional art techniques at the beginning or the end of your process.
NARRATIVE MIXED-MEDIA Revisit the Narrative project, using the imagery you have already created in an alternative format. This could take the form of a wearable work, or a mixed-media work using any digital transfer method on any materials… Some students may choose to work with experimental animation or video version using their narrative images. Explore and refine a specific image transfer technique to combine your digital imagery with a 3D object or tactile surface. Find inspiration in the work of other mixed-media artists and develop your own approach that transforms an object by merging it with your digital imagery to create a new experience or meaning when viewing the object. Possible techniques include using Lazertran, Ink Jet Transparencies, or other experimental transfer methods onto wood, glass, metal, plastic…
MIXED-MEDIA MOSAIC or SERIES Your final project can revisit any earlier project (like the Mosaic project), or start with original fresh imagery. You might develop a small series of images or work on a single piece in a larger, more ambitious format. Transfer the best imagery to a tactile object or unusual surface. Experiment with alternative materials such as Fabric, Wood, Glass, Metal… Just remember to test materials and leave time to craft the final mixed-media work to high standards.
DIGITAL NATION / RE-MIXED-MEDIA You may choose to revisit the REMIX creative process, working experimentally with new themes or returning to the Climate Remix topic. You could even create a work of digital mixed-media art that explores your personal relationship with technology, responding honestly to your own experience with digital media and daily life. Work with imagery and mixed-media to express your thoughts about balance in the digital age. (As we discussed in the Digital Nation and Rip! Remix viewing assignments)
