You just researched a textile tradition, aspect of textile history, or textile process. Now, create a piece that responds to or incorporates aspects of your research. You may choose to respond to formal elements, such as design motifs or incorporate the process or techniques in creating the textile. You may also choose to respond to the sociological or cultural aspects of the tradition by addressing – for example, but not exclusive to - the rules that govern the making of the textiles, or the function they serve in a particular society. The important aspect of this assignment is that you do not attempt to recreate or replicate the textile tradition, but rather reinterpret or respond to it as a contemporary artist.
Option 2: PERSONAL PROPOSAL
A process, material, conceopt or project in this class has sparked an idea. You desperately want the time to develop it and make it manifest. This is your opportunity.
Options 1 and 2: IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS
How will the viewer interact with the piece you present? How will you install it and where? Will you perform it or otherwise engage us in your work? Comsider location/site, space/proximity, the hardware you use to install your work and how every choice you make regarding presentation affects how we view and understand your work.
