I handed in my last/third assessment for VAR100 yesterday. this is the last week of class. and also it’s O-week for my next subject VSW13 Fine Art Studio Materials (intro to sculpture). I don’t know much about sculpture apart from what I’ve learned in VSW100 & VAR100, so I’m looking forward to learning more and finding out where/if I might fit into the sculpture making mode. I think I’m tending towards etextiles / installation work / technology but also “slow” work, but perhaps I’ll be surprised with something new as I have been in previous classes. they’ve all been eye opening, especially the artist research (even if I write it up too slowly – am working on writing it up straight away for this class, this helped in previous class)
currently watching Material Futures “Provocating Futures” presentations – some interesting bio-textiles and future materials presentations. http://mamaterialfutures.tumblr.com/tagged/Provocating%20Futures live stream @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ban7HHUWYpg&feature=youtu.be
my videoblogging friend Rupert Howe recorded some 360 degree video http://twittervlog.tv/2016/02/14/360-vlog-singing-under-a-railway-arch I haven’t seen/used 360 cam before. it was weird to watch too-to be able to change the view and the video kept going. hard to tell what was me choosing or orig view. but it’s actually both. original view is just the starting reference point I guess? am wondering how this changes ‘image as a point in time’ idea. when you *can* see whole scene. different way of process memories?
yes, will think more on this: how does the 360 degree camera footage change future memories – when you *can* see the whole scene
