Had my first meeting with my mentor last weekend. Pretty epic. I have had such good luck with mentors. They seem to be able to articulate exactly what I am thinking and can say it so much more elegantly.
notes from meeting:
My notes for a Plan:
Make work. Lots
Focus on adding additional elements
Space around objects
Navigate why I chose anatomical collections/ 19th century/ charts/ medical museums.
What about it… rather than why.
Kristiva- for thesis
How to make organs beautiful. Locate/view
@northwestern- find Rachel nifferneffer
read magic mountain
In response to crits that am not referencing contemporary means of view in the body
Emotions are invisible. You are trying to give density… (cant read)
Mri is a tool to view the body. Signs of the body, actual body.
Use x rays closer translate what I’ve done. You are translating
Beyond representation beyond color
Gabriel Orzo hand is my heart
Body use material
Sign of thing itself
Problem- need to represent
Vs. claim abstraction
Titles can help
Affect not tot narrate
Presentation titles explain position of the artist trust audience.
Between things- materials transparent unseen invisible
Job defend position of work
What is it doing?
Position is space
Blindfold- use materials make a feeling never look at it.
Use language of materials!!!
Body of Christ bread you eat the body.
