Mosaic Project / Self Portraits in the Digital Age

Digital Art Students: I will introduce this project in class and share many more examples.

In the era of selfies, this digital art project poses a question: What is portraiture in the digital age? Consider the history of portraiture, especially self-portraits by artists, and how the era is reflected in the style of the portrait.

Look at these: https://mymodernmet.com/famous-self-portraits/

ART 2016 Mosaic Project : Create a self-portrait that reflects your own identity as an artist in this contemporary age. Your portrait must also engage the concept of mosaic in digital media and should be assembled from multiple pieces that together form the whole. Allow the divisions between these pieces to play an active role in the image dynamics of the portrait. As tiled images these should reflect the multiplicity and fragmentation of personal identity in the digital age. Consider mixing traditional techniques (drawing, painting, etc) with digital techniques. Employ art principles to strengthen image unity (color, line, texture, etc). Assemble a dynamic image that contains both unity and surprise. Work at appropriate image resolution for quality output. Plan ahead for a final work at large scale (at least 20 inches in one direction.) Assemble mixed-media to highest quality final craft.

Digital Nation on PBS Frontline (viewable online)

Video Description from PBS: Within a single generation, digital media and the World Wide Web have transformed virtually every aspect of modern culture, from the way we learn and work to the ways in which we socialize and even conduct war. But is the technology moving faster than we can adapt to it? And is our 24/7 wired world causing us to lose as much as we’ve gained? In Digital Nation: Life on the Virtual Frontier, FRONTLINE presents an in-depth exploration of what it means to be human in a 21st-century digital world. Host / commentator Douglas Rushkoff, a leading thinker and writer on the digital revolution. Continuing a line of investigation she began with the 2008 FRONTLINE report Growing Up Online, award-winning producer Rachel Dretzin embarks on a journey to understand the implications of living in a world consumed by technology and the impact that this constant connectivity may have on future generations. “I’m amazed at the things my kids are able to do online, but I’m also a little bit panicked when I realize that no one seems to know where all this technology is taking us, or its long-term effects,” says Dretzin.

NEW YEAR REMIX Wrap-up

Remix_Day2_Hintermeyer_0001_10

Digital Art Mixed-Media Students / NEW YEAR REMIX Wrap-up

The Remix Project asks you to work up multiple versions of your experimental remix images each day in class. Over the weekend, please use the watercolor background paintings to remix another set of playful compositions. You will have digital work time in class on Tuesday, but please begin these over the weekend, to be sure you will have 10 fresh remixed images by end of day on Tuesday ok? I am hoping you can assert your own aesthetic and create some surprising images that mix and balance the messiness with some simplicity. Empty space is a great tool for setting off the complexity of layered remixes. Find your own way to express the theme : New Year Remix
DUE NEXT WEEK on THURSDAY:  The project will wrap up next week, DUE in YOUR OWN FOLDER in google drive name it : YOURNAME_REMIX_FINAL
inside, please include folders of many DIGITAL versions due :
Your Image Bank (photos, drawings, etc)
10 images of Day 1 digital remixes
10 images of Collage Day
10 images of Day 2 digital remixes
10 images of Watercolor Paint Day
10 images of ROUND 3 Final Digital Remixes
 ALSO DUE ON THURSDAY
4 prints of your BEST REMIX IMAGES (horizontal, 11 x 8.5 paper size) quality prints. We will combine selected prints into a class showcase on the theme NEW YEAR REMIX
In class next week we will also experiment with printing on the inkjet sample materials from your kit (fabric, transparencies, lazertran, etc)
