Constellation PDP, Level 6

Im sure most of the people around me feel quite strange about the fact that their dissertation is now finished. It seems like we are one more step closer to approaching the end of our university lives at some sort of bullet speed. For now, it seems a huge sigh of relief that it is over…

Mirrors for the Mind Box

The mirrors have arrived and I have installed them into the box. It has taken far longer than what I originally expected. It is mirrored film, what I thought would be a cheeper easier alternative to glass mirrors. However the one I decided to purchase was far bigger than what was necessary, and also not quite…

Constellation PDP

In review of the past years constellation I can now see that it has had some vital impact on my work that has now influenced my subject module. Although being  bit of a bumpy path, I have now finally got to the point where I can say I have a bit more of a clearer vision…

El Lissitsky, a helpful website

Here is a link to a really god website that I have found which will help me along the way with my dissertation proposal. I have been finding it difficult to bring all  of my ideas together for this task as it is such a huge subject that I have chosen to tackle. This helps…

Constellation, Exhibition as a Medium 5th Dec.

Constellation, Autonomous Art.

Firstly,  autonomous art is art that seeks independence from practical life. It is most commonly associated with notions of modernism. As Frances Frascina notes it is art ‘concerned with its own specialised laws, issues and competencies’, which might be encountered as  – apartness, silence, purity, reduction, or preservation. In contrast intervention within and political commentary upon…

Constellation Week One Andy Broady 17/10/14

Despite being my third choice for constellation, I believe these lectures could be quite useful for my practice. The first lecture was based on the idea of framing work; The idea of the separation of art from life. In our era of networked globalised societies that are commonly characterised by political and financial instability, art…

Site Specific Art with Andre Stitt

Site specific art work was pioneered in the 1950-s to mid 60’s in the result of a boom of art movements in that era; taking the art world out of the gallery and making us more aware of this world. Our concept of what site might mean and our perceptions of it are surpassingly pretty…
