Hello all and happy Friday!
Our instructions for today are pretty simple:
- Meet your Units II / III group in the front lobby of the ICA.
- Look over our Group Presentation assignment, and choose your group’s “provocation.”
- Tour Smith’s exhibit! During your stay, select some element of the exhibit for study. This can be an object, an image, a sound, a color, a recurring theme, a narrative, anything that strikes you as having an interesting relation to your group’s provocation. Take a photo or other documentation of that element. Share what you select with your group, including apx 250 words about your selection, how you came across it in the exhibit, and why you’ve chosen it.
This gets you through the first half of our group presentation assignment. If you successfully complete these steps today, you’ll only need to follow through with organizing your individual submissions into a google doc and creating your synthesis.
If you have extra time after touring, reconvene in your groups to talk through what you’ve selected and what ideas you have for your synthesis media.
What if my group isn’t here?!
No worries! Tour the exhibit solo, and make a few selections, preferably one per provocation. Later, when you and your group are able to get together you’ll have material for whatever provocation you choose.
