Foundation week five

DAY 1: CAN YOU WEAR EVERY PIECE OF CLOTHING YOU OWN ALL AT ONE TIME?

I put on all the dresses in my house, because I don’t usually wear dresses, so many dresses are just put in the cabinet for viewing, but today I put them on all at once, after putting on all the skirts are folded together, looks very thick, like a princess dress.

DAY 2: BUILD A FORT OR SHELTER THAT WOULD IMPRESS YOUR CHILDHOOD SELF.

DAY 3: MAKE YOUR OWN MASK/MAKE YOUR OWN SUIT.

My mask was made from a bra my mother didn’t want, and I thought it was so convenient that I didn’t even have to sew elastic on it, because it came with two straps that I could attach to my head

DAY 4: BUILD A SCENE/COLLAGE USING YOUR CLOTHING AS THE PRIMARY MATERIAL.

I made a big pair of panties out of my family’s panties and matched it with a bra of similar color

DAY 5: RESEARCH YOUR FAVORITE ARTICLE OF CLOTHING.

Cargo pants are loose pants with lots of pockets. Used to be popular more than a hundred years ago, it has a large number of fans in various industries and fields with the passage of time, but gradually faded out of people’s sight after the 1980s.
With the outbreak of the current economic crisis, the years of faded cargo pants also hit the waves in the fashion industry in Europe and the United States.

Jewish blood gave Levi business experience, and he immediately asked a tailor to make canvas pants for a “gold digger.” This was the world’s first cargo pants, which were called “Levi’s cargo pants” by the workers. Today, the overalls have become a worldwide garment — Levi’s.
Word spread that Levi’s overalls, made of canvas, were sturdy and durable. Levi was soon receiving large orders for Levi’s overalls. Seeing the steady flow of gold, levy gave up on the grocery store and in 1853 founded a company that made Levi’s overalls and branded them under his own name, Levi’s.
In the 18th century
In the 18th century, the children of the French aristocracy wore brightly colored corduroy and silk jumpsuits, a precursor to overalls.

Tooling was once very popular, especially the tooling of denim fabrics, at the same time also has a lot of satin and silk tooling, made with Gore – Tex long durability of outdoor equipment, corduroy and beaver fabrics production on the streets of color tooling, enthusiasm for work until the end of the 80 s, while for practical reasons, the police, army and security continues in overalls, but by 1999 the street is hard to see someone wearing tooling around.
In recent years, the overalls have begun to cross the catwalk again. The joined satin overalls are often seen at parties and ceremonies, and they have become more and more fashionable and have overshadowed their original functions. Today’s chic girls are looking for tencel’s thin cargo pants, a far cry from the rough, industrial cargo pants of a century ago.

DAY 6: PORTRAIT DAY!

Foundation week four

PROMPT 1: WRITE A LETTER GIVING ADVICE TO YOUR FUTURE SELF

Prompt 2: Conceptualize, Design, & Document your Pandemic Aesthetic

PROMPT 3: INTERVIEW SOMEONE YOU HAVEN’T TALKED TO IN A WHILE.

I interviewed my primary school classmate. We haven’t seen each other for a long time. The last time we spoke was a year ago. Including my favorite idols and TV series (because she said she was bored staying at home during the epidemic and wanted to find some good TV series for her to recommend)
I initially asked her when she would return to China and we could go shopping together. She said she couldn’t get a plane ticket right now, so I started trying to figure out what to do with her, and then she told me about the weight loss program she was running, and we were going to lose weight together. We also discussed parents’ concerns about outbreaks overseas.

PROMPT 4: EXQUISITE COLAB

PROMPT 5: USING A WINDOW AS YOUR BLANK CANVAS, CREATE SHAPES AND SYMBOLS THAT INTERACT WITH THE OUTSIDE WORLD.

PROMPT 6: GO OUTSIDE, DRAW A LINE AND RECORD IT AS FAR AS YOU CAN.

I didn’t go outside, because it’s dangerous outside now. If you don’t wear a mask, you may get sick. So I chose a special way to do it. I chose to draw a straight line on my easel. I didn’t skip any part from the beginning to the end.

Foundation week two

Assignment 1: Color Wheel Scavenger Hunt

Assignment 2 : Colors Organized Neatly

Assignment 3 : Color Research

Cochineal

The cochineal (/ˌkɒtʃɪˈniːl/ KOTCH-ih-NEEL, /ˈkɒtʃɪniːl/ KOTCH-ih-neel; Dactylopius coccus) is a scale insect in the suborder Sternorrhyncha, from which the natural dye carmine is derived. A primarily sessile parasite native to tropical and subtropical South America through North America (Mexico and the Southwest United States), this insect lives on cacti in the genus Opuntia, feeding on plant moisture and nutrients. The insects are found on the pads of prickly pear cacti, collected by brushing them off the plants, and dried.

History:

Cochineal dye was used by the Aztec and Maya peoples of North and Central America as early as the second century BC.[4] Eleven cities conquered by Montezuma in the 15th century paid a yearly tribute of 2000 decorated cotton blankets and 40 bags of cochineal dye each.[5] Production of cochineal is depicted in Codex Osuna. During the colonial period, the production of cochineal (grana fina) grew rapidly.[6] Produced almost exclusively in Oaxaca by indigenous producers, cochineal became Mexico’s second-most valued export after silver.[7] Soon after the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire, it began to be exported to Spain, and by the 17th century was a commodity traded as far away as India.[8] The dyestuff was consumed throughout Europe and was so highly prized, its price was regularly quoted on the London and Amsterdam Commodity Exchanges (with the latter one beginning to record it in 1589)[6]. In 1777, French botanist Nicolas-Joseph Thiéry de Menonville, presenting himself as a botanizing physician, smuggled the insects and pads of the Opuntia cactus to Saint Domingue. This particular collection failed to thrive and ultimately died out, leaving the Mexican monopoly intact.[9] After the Mexican War of Independence in 1810–1821, the Mexican monopoly on cochineal came to an end. Large-scale production of cochineal emerged, especially in Guatemala and the Canary Islands; it was also cultivated in Spain and North Africa.[8

Assignment 4: Artist Research

James Turrell

Born May 6, 1943, Los Angeles, California
Graduated Pasadena High School, 1961
BA Psychology, Pomona College, 1965
Art Graduate Studies, University of California, Irvine, 1965-1966
MA Art, Claremont Graduate School, 1973

he said:”I like light as a material, but my medium is really perception. I want you to feel what you feel, to see what you see.”

In the works of James turrell, we can also see his religious experience of nature. The works have a large color gamut, and there is no clear edge line between different colors. Trell’s device: here, color is given life and emotion by light, and three-dimensional space is flattened by ubiquitous light.

Turrell found a way to belong to this era – the light-emitting diode. He thinks it’s a fascinating invention: “they provide the clear, focused light you want. They are by far the most efficient, long-lasting and environmentally friendly way of converting energy into light.

Over the course of more than 50 years, trell spent all his time exploring the relationship between light and space, the mechanism of visual cognition and human perception of light. In terrell’s works, we often get a kind of pleasure as if we used hallucinogens: all the senses are placed in the light space created by terrell in a relaxed state, and follow the guidance of the light to their own hearts, in a piece of peace to temporarily release the physical and mental shackles of the outside world, suddenly clear.

In his work he is terrell cleverly uses light to construct abstract Spaces that exist in reality and can be accessed.

This is one of his Skyspace series. All of James Turrell’s works focus on “light” and are controlled natural or artificial light. But to my shock, I couldn’t find a normal light source in the work, and I couldn’t find a shadow, but I could actually feel the light in the picture, which was very interesting, and made me wonder how he did it many times.

Wedgework series, Wedgework 3, 1974, James Turrell. In this picture, we can see that its edge lines are very sharp and neat, but in the sense, these cuts are really gentle. Light is part of James Turrell’s work, and the other part is space. In his works, sometimes light is shaped by space, and sometimes space shapes light.

In James Turrell’s work, sometimes just as a carrier, background to put it another way, he used to reflect a prominent object he wanted, and we can see the picture of the light is not natural, it is a kind of man-made, the feeling is very science fiction illuminant, let me feel very magical, and have a feeling of not reality. In his works, I can always feel that the picture is endless, as if it can extend for a long distance, bringing me a mysterious sense of the unknown.

Final Performance

I have never completed an art project like this, and my team members made a book completely by themselves. Such a project forced our team to cooperate with each other, which could cultivate our collaboration ability, which I had never tried before. I found it very interesting. In the process of publishing the book, we thought a lot about how to draw the characters better, how to increase the visual effect, and we tried to make the audience fully understand what we wanted to express.
We also thought a lot about the plot, such as whether to add a dance at the end to attract the attention of the audience. But since neither of us was good at dancing, we gave up the idea. The play was very interesting to me, because sometimes what can be shown in the painting cannot be acted out in reality, so we thought of many ways to interpret our story, such as using cardboard, such as using sound. It made me think a lot.

I only get part of the video from my friends, which is not complete, but I can’t get the full video now. I’m sorry, but when I get the full video, I’ll fill it in.

Performance Process

We have a very clear division of labor, each of us completes his own clothes, my clothes are very unique, because my character is the most beautiful one in the whole story, and is a lamp. So I used a lot of bright paint on my dress and wrapped a lot of lights around the hem. And because my character is very shy, I can’t say anything directly, so I can only write her expression on the cardboard, so that the audience can better understand my role.

This photo shows the work list, our schedule and the list of things we need. Our story takes place in Ade hall. Each of us played a role on a level. We have discussed the material of the clothes. We will make them separately. In the days to come, we’ll talk more about live performances and buy materials.

When we did this assignment, the division of labor was very clear. Arielle finished the outline, Moran wrote the draft, I was in post-production, and Quinn was in charge of the lines. This division of labor is very organized and efficient in our work. It took moran and I nearly eight hours to finish the painting part. It was really hard. We stayed up all night. Our story was inspired by the film night at the museum, and the creation of the characters was inspired by toy story. We wanted to describe the characters’ personalities through various details. The characters we create are very vivid, there are a lot of words, very dynamic characters, also have a sigh, a little aggrieved feeling of the role of the role, and very shy, very few words goddess role. There were four of us, and our story happened from the point of view of one of the camera actors.

I think the division of labor is very important, it can make the efficiency faster. I learned a lot from this homework. In fact, at the beginning of drawing this cartoon, we have no idea about the sub-mirror and how to post-processing, but later on, I have learned some by myself. I can feel my progress in the work, from the rigid sub-mirror at the beginning to the vitality at the end, from the beginning when I did not know how to highlight the character’s mood with the background to the end when I became more and more aware of what kind of lines should be used to express. I enjoyed the process of doing my homework very much

Images of our space

We think the first floor of Ade hall is a good public space. It is a public space and there is enough space for us to perform. There is another place that all the students are familiar with. They will feel very familiar here.

Although this place is in Ade, it is completely different from the second floor, where most students eat. Mostly quiet. Sometimes there are different types of events. In addition, the posters, newspapers and TV here connect what is happening in the school. When I went there in the middle of the night, there were still some students eating on the first floor. Everything that happens here is secondary, without the sense of ritual on the second floor, because everything that happens on the second floor has their exact purpose — meetings or meals. The first floor is different. Some students come here just to swipe their ID and go upstairs. The casualness of the first floor made me feel more about the emotion of these objects. They may be lazier, more casual, or more disorganized.

When I chose the role, I thought that most of the objects in the places we chose were immovable, and only the lamp could sway with the wind, so I wanted to choose a movable object among so many immovable objects to make our cooperation look more dynamic.
