The first task on day three was something called, ‘Six Degrees of Separation’.
We were given 2 images, a starting image and an end image and hd to find atleast 4 connections between the 2 images that linked them together.
The first image I found difficult to connect to the artwork. I came up with picture 1 > squares > darkness > moonlight > picture 2.
The second artwork I found easier to describe. I came up with picture 1 > trees > nature > nature V manmade > plastic > picture 2.
The third image had to be connected with my own artwork. Picture 1 > portrait > paint > life drawing > my own artwork.
The fourth artwork had to be connected to myself. Picture 1 > house > family > warmth > me.
The second task was to describe an artwork I had seen in the last 12 months.
I chose to describe Bedwyr Williams, Tyrau Mawr (Big Towers), 2016 from the Artes Mundi exhibition. I found the basic descriptions fairly easy to write down but going in to depth was hard.
The next task was to draw the artwork from memory. Again, I was able to draw the basic things I saw when looking at this artwork but when it came to the details, I could hardly remember anything.
This was the artwork. It is a video installation showing what Wales would look like as a city like New York and how William’s thinks we wouldn’t be able to cope.
In the afternoon, we had to look at the artwork and talk about what we had missed.
This task showed me how much I hadn’t drawn/ wrote down, I was surprised by this when I looked back to the image of the artwork.
Short Writing Course (4/4)
Unfortunately, I could not attend the last session of the short writing course due to illness.
