Innocence and Guilt: Why Photos Don't Always Tell the Truth

Innocence and Guilt: Why Photos Don't Always Tell the Truth | Curriculum Writing and Guidance | Scoop.it
"Neither a person nor a photograph should be taken at face value; it is more complicated than that"
Taho's insight:
There are a number of opinions and other hidden messages that go into a photograph.  This article is about the different representations that are in portrait photography, either consciously or subconsciously.  Some seem to come from cultural meanings and interpretations.

Blog: Artist As Judge and Jury!

Blog: Artist As Judge and Jury! | Curriculum Writing and Guidance | Scoop.it
Often times we wonder about a process or method of approach used by artists in their craft - well how about turning that around "as an artist" to judge or jury the work of other artists? It can be a daunting task! Here 2016 Artisans Road Trip artist Anita Plucker explains her philosophy of that very difficul

6 Photographers Capture Same Person But Results Vary Widely Because of a Twist (VIDEO)

6 Photographers Capture Same Person But Results Vary Widely Because of a Twist (VIDEO) | Curriculum Writing and Guidance | Scoop.it
As the revealing video below shows, portraits can be shaped by the photographer’s point of view rather than just by the subject being documented. Created by The Lab in conjunction with Canon Australia, the clip features six photographers, one portrait subject and an unexpected twist. The twist consisted of the (mis)information each photographer was given regarding the person being photographed.
Taho's insight:

The meaning of a portrait / photograph is more reflective of the photographer than the subject matter.

Heike Weber’s

Heike Weber’s | Curriculum Writing and Guidance | Scoop.it
  Who knew Sharpies could look so sweet? Using permanent markers on acrylic paint and vinyl floor, photographer and artist Heike Weber has created these stunning drawing installations in the Villa Wachholtz in Germany. Born in 1962 in Siegen, North-Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, he has been displaying solo and group exhibitions for the last twenty years.   Here’s how it …

Chelsea DeLeon's curator insight, May 28, 2015 11:59 AM

Hieke Weber creates site specific drawing installations with sharpie markers. The drawings span the length of rooms and consist of repetitive lines. The lines are positioned in way so that they appear three-dimensional. Once finished, the drawings appear to jump off the wall in an almost optical illusion. Weber begins by painting the room white and then she colors everything with felt tipped markers. Her use of a single media and repetition create intense unity in the space and creates a drawing that overwhelms the viewer. Her work is extremely labor intensive and she and her team can spend days on a single plane of the site specific work.

STEAM Workshop Ideas: Africa Atlanta 2014 | Musings of a Renegade Futurist

STEAM Workshop Ideas: Africa Atlanta 2014 | Musings of a Renegade Futurist | Curriculum Writing and Guidance | Scoop.it

Events from this week inspired several ideas for 2014. First, there’s the prospect of Sanford Biggers coming to Georgia Tech as a visiting artist. This residency and culminating installation performance will anchor thematically related events and activities at Georgia Tech and across the City of Atlanta under the umbrella of Africa-Atlanta 2014. In my proposal Sanford would meet with students and faculty to help launch a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, math and art) after school education workshop. In between his visits to ATL/campus the participants will produce an interactive project inspired by the artist’s work. The workshop will consist of three stages:

 

Planning & research, including the use of Culturally Situated Design Tools  to simulate designs.Production, including the creation of artwork inspired by the visiting artist’s work.Installation & Exhibition, including a mobile application to enhance the artwork.

 

Masking or “massQuing” is a contemporary art practice that has the potential to create interesting interactive art. In Sanford’s film series, Shuffle, Shake & Shatter the subject (Ricardo) dons masks. The mask represents the “formation and dissolution of identity.”

e-flux journal 56th Venice Biennale — SUPERCOMMUNITY – Thinking About Art Thinking | Curriculum Writing and Guidance | Scoop.it
One of the problems we face when talking about art education is that we take the term “work of art” for granted. “Work” refers to labor as much as to an object, while “art” means the discipline in which this is performed, although it is also used as a laudatory adjective.

Chelsea DeLeon's curator insight, May 27, 2015 11:22 PM

Tony Orrico is a contemporary American artist and dancer that uses his body to create almost mathematically symmetrical art works. More specifically Orrico uses the range of motion of his body to create carefully measured layered graphite drawings on paper. Orrin’s art consists of the performance and finished product. He pays close attention to where his body is in space and on the paper at all times in order to create perfect circles. He focuses intensely for sometimes hours maintaining the perfect posture and position to create his pieces. His marks are sometimes organic, and other times more mathematical in appearance but all work in harmony to create beautiful monumental drawings.

Museums and Games for Learning (video)

Museums and Games for Learning (video) | Curriculum Writing and Guidance | Scoop.it

"This past Tuesday I attended a panel discussion titled Will Gaming Change the Way We Learn? (full video above) sponsored by Zócalo Public Square and held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. (And kudos to MOCA, Zócalo is fairly awesome and it’s nice to see them convening in a museum space.) More and more museums, as well as schools and other educational institutions, are becoming interested in the educational potential of games. Full disclosure – it was games that sparked my initial interest in digital education. Several years ago, while in grad school, I began reading about the work of Jane McGonigal, Director of Game Research and Development at the Institute for the Future. McGonigal maintains that games are powerful instigators of motivation and happiness for people, which is why folks will dedicate hours upon hours to mastering games. This feature of gaming, termed “stickiness”, is what has caught the interest of many educators. After all, anyone playing a game has to learn a lot – all the rules of the game, all the strategies, all the secret spaces."
