student blog posts
My first entry is from our first studio day. I went into the day very sure of my idea and ready to get started. After a productive conversation with Chris Sauter, I was back to the drawing board. So I went back to ideating to figure out the kernel of my piece.
My second journal entry was a continuation of my ideation. After the first day, I needed to let the idea rest, but I came back to it the next day and soon came up with my final idea by combining many of the material ideas I came up with while ideating.
All four of these journal entries show diagrams of the floor plan for living room, two bedrooms, bathroom, and kitchen in the abandoned house I'm currently working in. Pencil lines trace the worn out aspects of the space, the darker the shading the more worn down the space.
Exploring the change in landscape and changing talking topics in a van. Wrapping up May with final projects. In this journal I tried to reflect on the last couple days and project but feel so worn out from projects. Getting ready for ranch mix and excited for the rest of our time here.
In both of these spreads are some notes about two interviews of former students at the La Isla school outside of Antonito. One page is a drawing made by copy the curves of the road during our first day of travel. On top of the pages is a Polaroid of a swamp cooler in Delta Colorado, and a set of letter stamps.
My first two spreads are solely focusing on my final project idea. I had a moment of inspiration which was tied together by Ron’s adobe workshop. My third journal entry that I selected is focusing on themes that were standing out to me on the first and second day of the western excursion; the background and foreground of the changing landscape and the pop-out visuals seen on signs. This entry finishes up with an idea that I had for a sign.
