Ann Marie - Writing (Palette)
In this course we covered various aspects such as the liminal space - that area of creativity which is the space 'between' - the gaps between things we know for certain. It is an anxious space, between what we know and what we don't know, BUT it is the space of question and intersection, involving ambiguity and waiting, but for the artist/person wishing to access creativity, the drama lies there, I believe.
Jackie - Writing (Phase 3)
Other discussions include post modern cultural theory where 'why and how and when' writing brings its associated baggage and how the interplay between concept, form, technique and material can multiply an artworks' interest by at least 4X. Intentions, expression, formats and multitudinous techniques are also discussed in terms of concept - what is best suited to the visual representation the 'artist' is attempting.
The journey becomes an important aspect to discover creativity (but I'm not giving those secrets away).
Janina - Writing (Phase 3)
Logograms as conceptual vehicles for self, and other, close to the bone, mind mapped concepts form a late part of the module beginning with 'self' and the 'shadow'. Cuneiform, Hieroglyphs and early Sumerian writing examples are good demonstrators of this concept.
Cheryl - Writing (Phase 3)
Further, we discuss asemic writing, palimpsests, The Medici Effect, mapping, altered realities and the differences between abstract and concrete in terms of writing/concept, the effect of font and.... on and on, but ultimately this is all about critically ordering the flow of communication in art-making
using writing as the cultural point of reference.
