[FINALIZATION OF MY PROJECT]
I am glad to be done with my project. The rest of the process report will be shown during the patcha cutcha presentation. However, I will also leave some marks on wiki as well. I think this term had been about going through a lot of process and failure. Changing the concept three times was a quite a bit of challenge for me to struggle to find out how to figure out how my project should become.
In the beginning, I wanted to do a stop motion video using zen magnets. I spend 124 dollars buying them, and ended up with nothing for this term, but as a part of process and a failure to proceed. However, it was kind of fun playing with it with clay. I ended up making petit size foods with black clay I bought. Zen magnet seems easy to handle, but it requires a quite a bit of learning and training process. Zen magnet was extremely difficult to handle since it did not move the way I wanted them to. Anyways, I am done with this Zen Magnets...., or I might use it in the future?
I changed my plan and decided to shoot birds and create a scrapbook. I was not sure whether I would be able to make a scrap book using FCP because I was only able to find tutorial videos on Youtube with adobe after effects ,which I have never used before. I made a mid term sample video, and got a feed back that it is too disorderly with too many transitions and filters. So, I decided to keep up with one video filter called wide screen in the ratio of 1:3:3.
I think this video filter definitely helped to create a certain mood and style for my video. Keeping it concise and clear is always important when creating art works or writing essays. I changed my plan again to wanting to create an abstract video with how I feel when I observe birds. I ended up typing down number of feelings I had when observing birds. I came up with another sample video with full of music and bird sounds effects. It ended up not working out very well because the viewers pointed out that the number of music pieces I chose were too subjective that there was not enough sharing space for the audience to realize what I was trying to convey to them. One guy even said too many music was irritating and distracting.
This was not the only problem: deciding how long the piece should be was also a question for me. I originally had a five minute piece, but changing my concept again helped me to decide how long my piece has to be in the end. I ended up changing the concept to fear and anxiety. I narrowed down my feelings into a one theme. This definitely helped me to work on my video much easier and with more confidence.
The reason I chose this concept was because of how I felt during the shooting process. I spent about two to three hours shooting the birds on the pond. I was not easy to capture many birds, so I had to wait for them to come by and hoped for a group of birds to come at once. During the shooting process, I felt extremely bizarre. I could tell that birds were suspicious, or cautious about what I was doing. I think they were quite alert. I felt the tension and strange feelings between the birds and I. I think about that shooting moment, and realized that all animals and humans all fear of others, and have anxiety over being terrorized about their private spaces. I think this fear and anxiety, sometime unnecessary, always come up in this dangerous world. I think people who watch news often will feel this way more than the others who do not.
Even in my personal experience of being in a bus, there is always a strange tension and discomfort inside the space. There had been news about a person hitting a bus driver with a hammer, or threatening a bus driver because he complained about the user not paying the bus fee. Strange things always happen, but this feeling of anxiety and fear is even more tiresome to have it all the time. This not only makes me get tired easily, but is not helpful for my mental and physicality.
I think that my visual can be suit with either positive or negative sound pieces that it has a flexibility and changeability to transform into other work to create a different mood or atmosphere. I think that the contrasting sounds and visual also make this work more interesting. I will see what happens during the critique tomorrow. I am looking forward to it!
I THINK I AM IN THE STAGE OF FINISHING UP MY VIDEO FOR THIS COURSE.
FROM THE SEMINAR, I HAD A FEW RECOMMENDATIONS FOR VISUAL AND SOUND CHANGE.
I SMOOTHES THE SOUND OUT MORE IN ORDER TO MAKE THE SOUND NOT TOO ROUGH FOR THE VISUAL
MY VISUAL WILL BE THE SAME AS THE ONE THAT I SHOWED IN THE SEMINAR BECAUSE OTHER ALTERNATIVES DID NOT WORK OUT VERY WELL
1. THE COLOUR TRANSITION FROM BLACK TO RED DID NOT WORK AT ALL FOR ME BECAUSE IT STARTED TO FUNCTION TO BLOCK THE PREVIOUS LAYERED VISUALS IF THE TONE OF THE COLOR GOT STRONGER PLUS I HAD NO IDEA HOW TO SMOOTHLY TRANSITION FROM BLACK TO RED BUT NOT BLOCKING THE VISUAL WITH THE COLOUR OF THESE TWO
2. KEEPING THE FRAME WAS NO LONGER A CHOICE FOR ME BECAUSE BLACK AND RED ONLY COULD BE REVEALED IN A STRONG TONE OF COLOUR ON THE BOUNDARIES BUT CANNOT OVERLAP THE VISUALS . IN ORDER TO SHOW THE VISUALS THE OPACITY HAS TO BE REDUCED AND END UP RESULTING IN NOT ABLE TO SHOW THE COLOUR CLEARLY AT ALL
THE SOUND PART IS WHAT I KIND OF FOCUS ON FROM NOW ON
1. I ADDED MORE FADES IN ORDER TO SMOOTH OUT SOUNDS TO MAKE IT MORE LIKE A SOUNDSCAPE
2. I THINK I WILL TRY PLAYING WITH PITCH AS I ALREADY PLAYED WITH REVERSE AND D-VERBS - THIS WILL NOT BE INCLUDED IF IT DOES NOT SOUND GOOD ENOUGH
so far, there is no progress I have done for now. I have had some organization issue and setting problem and now I have problem finding or reconnecting my files to re-edit on fcp. I learned this term that it is not alright to export .mov film until i fully finish my video. I also need to focus on organizing my file with more caution. It is quite frustrating to not know what is happening when i imported my exported .mov file and try to edit it on fcp. when i play the mov file it is in sync, and when i export it again it is out of sync. This bizarreness which i cannot understand really bothers me.
I have changed my plan from creating a zen magnet transformation with bird sounds to -> a bird video and sound that can express my feeling when observing birds.
I made a rough cut and realize that it had to be narrowed down to a one feeling and not many video filters (from seminars and critiques).
So, i decided to come up with one feeling, "fear and alarmed" and focus on my sound and visual on this word.
[Notes on Ecological Issues of Migration and Health of Birds]
Sometimes, journeys are not termed "true migration" because they are irregular (nomadism, invasions, irruptions) or in only one direction (dispersal, movement of young away from natal area).
A common pattern in North America is clockwise migration, where birds flying North tend to be further West, and flying South tend to shift Eastwards.
Many, if not most, birds migrate in flocks. For larger birds, flying in flocks reduces the energy cost. Geese in a V-formation may conserve 12–20 % of the energy they would need to fly alone. Red Knots Calidris canutus and Dunlins Calidris alpina were found in radar studies to fly 5 km per hour faster in flocks than when they were flying alone.
However most bird migration is in the range of 150 m (500 ft) to 600 m (2000 ft).
Records of bird migration were made 3000 years ago by Hesiod, Homer, Herodotus and Aristotle. The Bible also notes migrations, as in the Book of Job (39:26), where the inquiry is made: "Doth the hawk fly by Thy wisdom and stretch her wings toward the south?" The author of Jeremiah (8:7) wrote: "The stork in the heavens knoweth her appointed time; and the turtledove, and the crane, and the swallow, observe the time of their coming."
The primary physiological cue for migration are the changes in the day length. These changes are also related to hormonal changes in the birds. Navigation is based on a variety of senses. Many birds have been shown to use a sun compass. Using the sun for direction involves the need for making compensation based on the time. Navigation has also been shown to be based on a combination of other abilities including the ability to detect magnetic fields (magnetoception), use visual landmarks as well as olfactory cues.
The ability to successfully perform long-distance migrations can probably only be fully explained with an accounting for the cognitive ability of the birds to recognize habitats and form mental maps.
Migratory birds may use two electromagnetic tools to find their destinations: one that is entirely innate and another that relies on experience. A young bird on its first migration flies in the correct direction according to the Earth's magnetic field, but does not know how far the journey will be. It does this through a radical pair mechanism whereby chemical reactions in special photo pigments sensitive to long wavelengths are affected by the field.
More recent research has found a neural connection between the eye and "Cluster N", the part of the forebrain that is active during migra
It has been possible to teach a migration route to a flock of birds, for example in re-introduction schemes. After a trial with Canada Geese, microlight aircraft were used in the US to teach safe migration routes to reintroduced Whooping Cranes.
movement of birds = different background of zen magnet to express their migration
magnet and birds function in groups
background music = birds
human intervention to birds (ecological function)and magnet (human force on to magnet)
vagrant - a person who wanders from place to place e.g. birds, magnets such as homeless things without destination
my video will end without destination
I had a seminar on feb 4 2012 fri. I was introduced to the site . This site contains many bird sounds recorded by artists. This should be a useful site for my project. I also leared that plasticine and internal stick would function as useful tools for stop motion. I will research "complexity of nature" -movement of birds (= movement of zen magnet) -forces of nature (= forces of zen magnet) -how do birds navigate?
After the seminar, I realized that in-depth content, and interrelating similarities between zen magnet and birds will help me get through this journey. My though has slightly changed that I might not only do bird sounds, but also nature sounds such as water, wind, and other animals.
I am going to take pictures of zen magnets to create stop motion, and later photoshop each pictures with nature backgrounds I take. Each object I create will resemble the shapes of nature such as flower, bird, snake, clouds etc.
I am going to upload some pictures, and create a rough cut for the seminar in two weeks.
[DEFINING A PROJECT]
You have all had an opportunity to exchange ideas and reflect on your own ideas about experimentation and practice. Now it is time to create a proposal for your term's work. Even if the nature of the work you wish to embark upon is new territory for you, proposals should be substantial. In addition to answering the questions below, you may pose a series of questions to yourself, diagrams, initial experiments, references to other people's work or a general subject area that you either have an affinity for; wish to use as a starting off point; or wish to critique or otherwise investigate. Answer each of the following questions within the body of your proposal:
1. What work do you wish to pursue? I am currently thinking of constructing an object using zen magnets. I am planning to do installation sound piece. It would be about the correlation between the movement of zen magnets and the way sounds react/ how zen magnets react (according to my intuition, or calculating by inventing my own theory, or it could be both.
2. Is it a medium/ practice/ technique that you have had an interest in and not yet an opportunity to explore? Yes. I have never done a project using zen magnet, and I have had interest doing this by watching videos on Youtube.
3. is it a 'stab in the dark' in the interest of taking you into personally uncharted territory? This would be definitely exploring an uncharted territory.
4. It is encouraged to be outside of your current experience/techniques, but is it also outside of your conceptual habits/ comfort zone? 5. What is it about this area of inquiry/subject/media/medium etc. that interests you. I think using zen magnet will be a new experience and will definitely challenge my comfort zone in a way I have so much anxiety and fear of struggling how I should continue with my proposal.
Influences: (thanks to Genieve Phillips for sharing these videos!)
Cindy Auyeung Hi Da Eun! Sorry I'm not sure where I can insert my comments so I'm going to put it here for now, you can move it if you like but it refers to your idea above. I think your idea is an exciting one to explore, and definitely go with some of Dennis' suggestions today and just get started by playing with Zen Magnets. A suggestion to brainstorm would be to think in terms of themes, like he said, what other sounds can zen magnets match with? Like birds it can be single or it can do amazing things when combined together as a flock or group. Water too - a single drop or a waterfall... and so on. Zen magnets is very organic in the sense that it really depends on you to create something out of it due to its magnetic properties as well. Can't wait to see what you have decided!
Yu Ying Hi Da Eun I really the like idea you using Zen Magnets because I never thought this tool before and it sound interested to me. Maybe because I always watch drama or reality show that why I do not get any inspiration of thinking to use metal or glass to create sound .I really would like to know how you doing to do this for your first time ? Will you show images in the wiki so we can see it?
[PROCESSING IDEAS FOR MY PROPOSAL FOR EXPERIMENTAL CLASS]
What am I interested in? -hypnosis -sensual feelings (touching, smelling, feeling) -bible, grown up as a christian versus my fantasy (sexual desire): this does not mean that I think about this EVERYDAY, JUST COME UP TO MY MIND AS ONE OF THE IDEAS FOR MY PROPOSAL -What is life? (If I was not brought up with religious, or any other type of ideology, I find no reason to survive/ live. I will lose to have motivation to continue on....
1. I am extremely (stressed/frustrated/exhausted) about the notion of ‘emotional control’ ( ) very difficult to pick the right word for it here.
Influenced by Pipilotti Rist [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJgiSyCr6BY ] [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYDh_D1G0hU ] [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a56RPZ_cbdc ] [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJhgIcbSEeM ]
I am a woman (I am twenty – one), yes I do have a womb. Yes there is a possibility of getting conceived. Yes birth control pills are bad for my body. Yes they are prescribed pills and expensive. I cannot afford to take those pills because I have no income. Yes thinking of taking a bcp every day is such an annoying task, which I will probably forget to take every day.
I will never have an unprotected sex with an unknown man, and I will never get pregnant unless I change my mind later. Imagining having sex with an unknown, or a man I do not love just to fulfill my sexual desire is such a disgusting act. I will never do such a thing. I will never get STDs. Gross and disgusting. I will take care of my self, my body, my mind, and my soul. I can CONTROL myself.
Why is sex a sin? Christians always tell me that it is morally wrong to have sex before marriage. You are sinning at the moment you think about sex, watch pornography, masturbate, and imagine about having sex with a person. Why? Is it that bad? really?
I have always thought that pornography is extremely disgusting. I thought pornography was invented in order to fulfill individuals’ sexual desire by watching sexual acts of people. However, pornography is disgusting and fearful in a way that it runs beyond the boundary of just ‘making love.’ It is torturous and extremely scary. I never felt vicariously eroticized by watching pornography. On the other hand, I was scared, shocked, and surprised.
Making love is not about slapping faces, putting a huge ball into a vagina, ripping clothes, and stick a penis into a mouth and let a person not able to breath…
Making love is to feel each other deeply and is something intimate you do it with someone you dearly love. I never had someone I truly loved. I never felt the desire to have sex with anyone. I don’t know when I will ever find my true love, but the time has not yet come for sure.
It is frustrating to have limitations in life all the time. There are regulations, rules, and stuff you have to obey. My mother is a sincere Christian, and I am a Christian too. I believe in God, but does not know yet if I am a sincere believer. I would like to experiment with a man who is willing to get naked with me, and experiment with a vagina and a penis. This does not mean that we should torture each other. I am just saying that I want to have time to experiment with sensualist using human sense as well as objects that can help achieve ‘the desire.’
I always have had this fantasy of having sex. Two angels having sex. A beautiful scenary, a romantic and relaxing music, air shining with sparkles, and two angels making love. On such a serene and a beautiful day. Flowers, trees, clouds, etc. This fantasy will never be able to be achieved in reality, but I think I can try my best to imitate (not sure though if I will be able to….)
- the reason I want to make this video is because: loneliness, desire for a connection, desire for love and passion
2. Balloons, masks, objects inside the balloons: This would be my second idea. I was thinking of metaphor while thinking about this project. This will end up as a performance piece recorded with a camcorder. I was thinking of creating different masks that indicate different emotions. Balloons will function as 'events that happen' in my life. Balloons can be popped, blown, wonder around, left as it is etc.... into many different physical forms. What I intend to do here is to collect objects that represent me, history of "I" and store those objects in each balloon. The performing aspect of this piece would be for me to wear each mask for each sequence of a shoot and play with balloons to "recollect my past memories" and to learn to thank, rethink, forget about some of the events happened in my lifetime.
3. I was sitting on a sofa still struggling what I should do for my experimental project. Some ideas come up to my mind, but I am not sure how to justify any of those. One of the projects I would like to do is “stock animation” using two brushes.......I want to create a short dialogue between these two brushes, and create a stock animation. I think this will be a lot of fun doing it!!! Now, I have to research some artists who make stock animations….
4. Magnetic Movements Using zen magnets, create a stock animation/a video according to the sound rhythm I compose. - I DECIDED TO GO WITH THIS PROPOSAL SINCE THIS IS WHAT MY PASSION TELLS ME TO DO. PLAYING WITH ZEN MAGNETICS SEEMS INTERESTING AND I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO PLAY WITH IT SOON !!!!!
5. I was taking a walk along the false creek beach(?!) area, and suddenly realized how beautiful bird sounds are. I would like to compose my music piece with my bird sounds... TOUGH I AM NOT SURE HOW TO PERFECTLY CLEANLY RECORD ONLY BIRD SOUND AND NOTHING ELSE... MAYBE VISING CONSERVATORY IN THE ELIZABETH PARK WOULD BE HELPFUL....MAYBE.. I was also thinking that it would be interesting to create a graph according to bird music I compose... THIS ONE SOUND PRETTY INTERESTING AS WELL.... WHY CAN I NOT DECIDE WHAT I TRULY WANT TO DO FOR THIS PROJECT??? still struggling.....
Naivete and innocence: Lesly Perrie brough up the youtube video of Alexandra AND connect my pictures using photoshop to simply play and have fun with it (naievite and innocence of nature) , possibly incorporating bird sounds as well.
combine boa’s energetic mv with the exploding of zen magnet, cover my fact to upper body with zen magnet create important key words from Boa’s mv with zen magnet + try to add some sounds in combination of Boa’s music video, or take out the sound and use only my sound composition
born to the dance floor dance dance dance dance dance I’m feeling so energetic The energy in here is via speaker stooddoo,oo Beat Put me on put me on put me on I feel like I am up there up up up there like clo,ouds I’m feeling so energetic don’t think it will every get away Come on and make me (zen magnetics: “come on and make me explode!!=) Born to the dance floor
stress relieving experimental project
Yesterday night, I went home and sound a shitty looking t-shirt and a vinyl brown bag. I wondered what those would be, so asked my mother if you bought them. She said she did not buy them, but got them from her older sister, who is an aunt for me.
I personally fucking hate their family for a number of reasons: first, they have been verbally abusing me for calling me fat-ass every time I see them and are the main cause for me to choose to take diet pills which almost brought me to death. I recovered a lot, so I am feeling a lot better, but I saw some girls who died of the diet pill I took.
I ended up having a huge fight with those three bitches (aunt, her two daughters: one 4 yrs older than me, another 7 yrs older than me). After that fight, I did not get in touch with them for more than 5 yrs now. I will never contact them, and I don’t even remember who those people are any more. They are completely out of my mind these days.
Yesterday, I was fucking pieced off because my mother told me that she got that shitty looking t-shirt and a brown bag from that aunt I mentioned above. I was so fucking pieced off, but pretended that I was fine and just said, “oh really? Okay.”
Around 12am, I was trying to sleep, and I could not sleep because of the fact that those people’ s stuffs are in my place. I took out scissors, and ripped them into pieces secretly in my room after my mother fell asleep.
Today morning at 1030am, my mother asked me where the bag was. I told her that I trashed it. She suddenly was screaming at me saying that she never received proper gifts from anyone, saying that I had no right to do anything with that stuffs.
If those family wanted to offer a gift to my mother, they should have bought a Coach, Gucci, or Prada type of expensive and well-made bag instead of a fucking shitty looking bag without a logo. They are so wealthy that they don’t even know what to do with their money, so they wear dresses at home.
From what I saw, I could only assume that they got that bag from someone else, and just gave it to my mother because they don’t need it. So, I was fucking mad, and ripped that bag, and trashed it in the parking lot.
My mother started swearing at me calling me a fucking, useless, and trash-like bitch. She said I deserved to be skinned alive dead instead of this bag. She said I must have financial problem later in my life, so I can always treasure any kind of stuff that are in the house.
My mother started slapping me, so I ran away from her to the washroom and locked the door, in order to stop feeling the pain. She told me to open the door, and I didn’t for about 15 minutes, and she said she will break the door with a hammer. (we are renting this place? Excuse me, are you fucking out of your mind?)|
So, I told her I will open the door if she goes into the room and leaving the hammer down from her hands so that I don’t get beat up with a hammer. She told me to get out of the washroom right now, and just get out of the house. I just took a shower, and did not eat anything for a breakfast? She said she doesn’t care, and told me to get out of the house. So, I got out, and am doing my homework in the Vancouver Public Library feeling so fucking crappy.
So, What came up to my mind was to find a way to relieve my today’s emotional distress by creating an EXPERIMENTAL VIDEO incorporating my sound piece that can help me relieve this stress, sorrow, and depression.
So there are two directions for this project: 1. record myself doing violent actions such as : cutting a raw meat or a fish with a knife and just keep stabbing at it – the background sound related to anger such as my recording my voice with h4zoon with swearing words that I heard, keep stabbing until I feel completely relieved 2. Or, choose to film nature and create a sound piece that is soothing and relaxing.
I think I will do #1 because I think it will be more fun experimenting with this kind of video
I might do this or, still go with the magnetic sound, OR INCORPORATE THSES TWO
Yu Ying comment Hi Da Eun your story is very interested and I think you are very brave girl. However, you need to try to control you temper sometimes when you deal with your mom. From my personal perspective, I think instead of dumbing the clothes, you should donate the clothes to chairty .Therefore, you mom will not say you have financial problems or she may be less angry with you. Since you are helping people who have worst situation than you. Another thing I want to mention, I think watching sex or porn is normal for people are christian or non-christian since we are human and we will never be perfect like god . Especially in our age we are curious of sex or porn images so you don't have to be shy when you watch it instead I think you need to control yourself watching it. Moreover, I think you will have a healthy sex in the future when you are married since you are know the techniques and how it work. On the othe other hand ,I don't think you need to let the devil to manipulate you if you make the right choice. For instance , we can't control the adverstiment poping out in front of the tv or internet .But we can choose to ignore those adverstiments by making choices that we think is right or wrong for us.Additional,when you mention how you hate your aunt and her daughters remember this there is something they can't never compare with you is that you are youthful than me. Who cares if you are fat or skinny , you still have time to make up things and they don't have the time now. Wish you the luck and see if you understand my comments or not? I write too us hehe...><
[MY PERSPECTIVE ON EXPERIMENTATION]
1. what's your individual perspective on experimentation? (eg. working against being deliberate? working toward spontaneity/improvisation or working outside or your area of expertise/ comfort?)
Experimentation is to experiment with various medium and materials to explore various ways of expressing one's ideology, psychology, philosophy etc in an art form.
2. experimental practice (is this term an oxymoron?)
Experimental practice can be interpreted as oxymoron in a way that is is a combination of using many different art forms already in existence yet not pursuing or inventing something new.
3. What is the significance of experimental work at this particular point in time (considering our global general social/ political/ environmental milieu: social interactions, art practices, art business, politics, social movements, social networking etc.)
The significance of experimental work is that it allows freedom in using all medium to express one's global social, political, and environmental milieu. In this way, art practice becomes more diverse in expression.
4. when experimental process(es) become canons: a. using UBU.com as a resource, research and identify an experimental work that interests you (tell us why). Include a link to this work in your paragraph.
DREAM : I WAS INTERESTED IN LISTENING TO ITS VAGUE AND SENSUAL SENSE OF THE SOUNDS. ZORN WAS NARRATING HIS EXPERIENCE OF DREAMS, YET HE WAS NOT TELLING 100 PERCENT OF A STORY. AMBIGUITY IS WHAT MAKES THIS WORK INTERESTING AND DERIVES MY CURIOSITY AND DESIRE TO GET TO KNOW THE DEEPER AND DETAILED STORY OF THE DREAMS. IT IS QUESTIONABLE WHAT HE WOULD SAY "BYE" AT THE END. IT IS DEFINITELY INDICATING THAT HIS DREAM ENDS THERE, BUT DREAM IN GENERAL DOES NOT FORETELL (A PERSON WHO IS DREAMING) WHEN THAT DREAM WILL END.....
2. Pierre Andre Arcand "You Will Live"
I WAS INTERESTED IN THIS SOUND PIECE FROM THE WAY THE VARIETY OF SOUNDS WERE UNIFIED IN A STRUCTURED AND REPETITIVE FORM. I WAS ASTONISHED BY THE FACT THAT ARCAND USED STEREO TAPE RECORDER PROCESSED ON THE SOP USING THE TECHNIQUES OF OVERLAPPING AND DELAYING. IT IS INTERESTING TO LISTEN TO MANY ELECTRONIC SOUNDS.
3. Dylan Nyoukis
Nyoukis's works, Magnetic Headache, is an interesting sound piece. This sound work offers an experience of illusion, unconfortness, and consistent irritance of one particular sound. There is a long-existence of sound, which is similar to a mosqito's engages my attention, at the same time derives my desire of the sound not to continue on any longer.
b. using UBU.com, find one example of an experimental artwork (can be sound, film, performance, sculpture, or any other medium/media) that was so influential that it is now part of a canon/tradition/technique.
I visited the Museum of Anthropology and visited The O'Brian Gallery. There was an exhibition (which I do not remember the name of), which contained number of aboriginal photographs in illuminated glass containers. The containers were illuminated with lights inside, and the photographs were located inside the boxes. The photographs are about aboriginals and residential schools. The box was designed with aboriginal shapes.
I think this technique is prevalent in making table lamps.
(Comment Fiona Bowie: Da Eun, you have referred to some interesting work here, it makes me curious about what you will undertake for your project. In relation to your comment on #2, (Experimental practice... is a combination of using many different art forms already in existence yet not pursuing or inventing something new. ) - I think this depends on individual practice and choices - I think that some would point out that even reinvesting in known territories produces new knowledge. I think others would go further to say that they are actively pursuing the creation of something novel. You should look at the museum's website to find the work you are referring to here. (end comment).
