Art2016 Final Projects must integrate DIGITAL ART with MIXED-MEDIA. Your approach may use tactile materials or traditional art techniques at the beginning or the end of your process.
FINAL PROJECT / Digital Mixed-Media Options
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. 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… Plan ahead and bring materials you need to work in class. Bring enough for testing and trial-and-error mistakes, and ask for help in class or during the open lab hours.
MIXED-MEDIA MOSAIC or Remix Images Your final project can revisit any earlier project (like the Mosaic project or Climate Remix), 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.
Please look at the blog and view tutorials for inspiration. I will share some examples of previous student work in tactile / digital projects.
