Spring 16 Art 2016 > Final Project Choices

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. Your final project plan must outline your step by step plan, and describe the final format you will turn in for grading. More info in class!


Option 1 : OBJECT OF DESIRE  Create a work of digital mixed-media art that plays off the title: Object of Desire. Explore and refine a specific image transfer technique to combine your digital imagery with a 3D object. 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…

Option 2: NATURE MEETS MACHINE Create a work of digital mixed-media art that explores the relationship between the natural world and technology. Respond honestly to your own experience with digital media and daily life. Work with imagery and mixed-media to express your thoughts about how to strike balance in the digital age. Works may be in any materials, but must integrate both digital media and nature in some way.

Option 3: RE-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 on a short animation or video version using their narrative images.

OR Revisit any earlier project, such as the Mosaic or Remix grids. Develop a series of images (at least 10 iterations) Transfer the best imagery to a tactile object or unusual surface. Experiment with alternative materials such as Fabric, Wood, Glass, Metal…
