I just realized that I never did actually upload in my blog my project proposal after changing my topic from its previous subject.
I was planning to do my project on social media and its influence on the people in my region and culture, but half way through unit 1 I decided to change my project proposal as I stated all my reasons on MPR presentation and below is my current project proposal which I am still updating and working on throughout the unit.
Judgment of others & of self, and the way through to return to love.
Honesty and authenticity throughout this project is a main key for me to reach for my ultimate aim of it. We all struggle daily from judgment, either we are judging ourselves or judging others on their political views, sense of style, way of behaviors and many other little things that we might think its minor or silly. No matter how kind, spiritual or compassionate we are we keep judging all the time. At the beginning we might feel good or better than others when we start judging them but at the end of it we feel bad, isolated and we lose the sense of belonging.
Through out this project I would like to observe my own and others judgmental patterns, reasons behind it, and find the way through to return to our true nature which is love.
I will keep a journal of my own judgmental daily moments, practicing interactive spiritual techniques to learn more about its effect on my judgmental behaviors, as well as conducting surveys, interactive experiments & experiences with audience.
I would like to research more as well about the following art movements:
Glitch art is the practice of using digital or analog errors for aesthetic purposes by either corrupting digital data or physically manipulating electronic devices.
is a postmodern art movement of the 1980s. The term refers to artists influenced by pop art.
Photography and mixed media as well as working with popular images and colors using Photoshop will be my main methods in exploring my area of interest. Through capturing different moments and adding my personal feelings, thoughts and touches using mixed media tools I will be creating my form of art and will discuss those social issues that interest me, in a colorful and appealing art pieces. I am curious in exploring new different forms of media in my work, where I can experiment printing my work on diverse range of materials for example plastic, canvas and acrylic.
I would like to create Interactive art installations where visitors will not only be observers, instead they can interact and participate in my art work which will create a sense of curiosity and belonging between the visitors and the installation. In order to make art more accessible I want to create pieces that will not only be displayed in galleries and museums, but also can be part of locations that public visits as part of their everyday life such as restaurants, shopping malls, parks and festivals.
