Today was the finale of all three site venue projects. The day began in university, exploring the information critique artworks displayed all around the building, that each found different ways to disrupt and critique information.
Obstructed reflection was found in every location with a mirror for vanity within the School of Art and Design. The aim, to investigate into how we rely on our reflections. Coloured abstracted shapes, some of which were double-sided with different colours. What really attracted me was the abstract coloured shapes, as colour and form are two major focuses within my practice this year. I think the aim was to obstruct visual information and the way in which we see things. Instead of seeing a clear picture, my reflection was broken up by colour, only allowing me to partially see.
The Discomfort Zone was taking place at Three Doors Up. An exhibition with a multitude of installations and activities to make the audience uncomfortable, ranging from high pitched noises, to gross food, to the cone of shame. The concept of making the audience uncomfortable through the exhibition is really interesting.
Finally, there was the exhibition of my group, Ways of Exhibiting, in which we displayed our dioramas and shoebox exhibitions. It was really cool seeing all our work coming together, as everyone had created such different works. A couple of my favourites involved the use of changing colour lights and the used go collage. I displayed my diorama in the window of the exhibition, as it needed a lot of light, to make the colours stand out, and it was surrounded by plants as the diorama was inspired by nature and organic forms. It didn’t matter so much where my shoebox was placed as the whole concept behind it was looking an exploring inside of it.
