As I did each part in this project along with the project#6 in ADV1100 class, it probably took two days to do. Thinking about ideas for the gallery, finding the right text to use, choose the right words that works and brain storming on what point your coming across for the reader to understand.
Honestly I thought about the main idea to go for on the day we were assigned for this project. I didn’t have the document at that time, but I didn’t know what text to use. So, I chose to use a document from the humument page that contains the words I need that follows my main idea. By the way, the main idea was basically how people can’t always see what the other see in an artist perspective. So, we all have different ideas or meanings for what the image is displaying which can make another person think but stick with their own idea. I’m not trying to say that its a bad thing, but an interesting way we are as humans. We all are different. That’s why my title for the catalogue is named, “Differences”.
When I say that it took me two days, I mean two days to plan things out before I jumped into making my catalogue. I had to reread the text I chose over and over again and then chose the perfect words that flows well with my main idea. It wasn’t that easy, but I tried. As I finally felt happy with what I got, I got into writing the catalogue and the note with confidence.
Hope you like it!
During project 4, I didn’t really expect to do something like this for a project. I just thought we’re just gonna walk around, see things, explain it and that’s it, but actually doing the route and taking the time to see what is around you and have a sort of connection or feeling or emotion from what you’re looking at and where you are. You want to show everyone or anybody how things are in your perspective. I thought project 4 was a good experience for me to explore somewhere different to find what interest you if the route was quiet or filled with beauty or involves happiness or etc. I like to share things I like to convince people to do something that I think would be appropriate to them and even though I’m not that convincing a times, I try my best to really get people in the spirit of wanting to see or do something without feeling like “oh it’s raining/it’s not a good weather today”, “oh I don’t want to do this cause I’m lazy”, but getting that feeling of wanting to do something is relaxing, refreshing, and comforting.
In my opinion this project helped me mentally and physically because I can be lazy and just stay in bed or if I’m in school after my classes are done for the day, I just sit & eat with my friends, but don’t move around and see what’s around the area. I want to see what’s around the school. I never been around Brooklyn as much (I don’t live him Brooklyn by the way) and it would be really cool to just see what’s out there for me to see. Mentally, I just overthink a lot and become stressful from tons of work I have to do and personal things but the walk helped my boyfriend ,whom was with me on the route, and I. It helped clear our minds and and try to enjoy what’s to see, have fun with it. Also tried not to think it was a project, but a challenge. I had smile on my face and he had a smile on his face. It was good to see him happy, is good to feel happy and when I looked at the Brooklyn Bridge I felt like I accomplished something and I wanted see more. I mostly focusing on the beauty of the bridge and see it in a different view and setting. it’s just hard to explain but Sometimes I see things In artist perspective and it’s just amazing. I explain it more in my Pitch essay! Check it out!
