Happy Study Week. No classes. February 18-23 Study Week

Week 6

(please refer to course outline for rest of terms dates and assignments)[[File:FVIM 331 Experimental Practices Online Course Outline Spring 2013.pdf
]]
Hi everyone, it was a pleasure to talk with you via skype last week to discuss your projects and plans of action for the terms work. This week, I am creating peer groups for you, so as your work develops, you can comment and support each other's explorations. You will see your peer group links at the top of your pages by tomorrow (Tuesday, February 12th). For those of you who opted for a later skype meeting, you will be participating in the scheduling of the next set for week 10 (3 weeks after reading break).
THIS WEEK START AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY
As I mentioned to most of you over skype, I am also providing information on creating an annotated bibliography that you will create for the research portion of the 6 credits. Annotated bibliographies are incredibly useful as you move forward into professional life. I still update and refer to the one I started while I was in graduate school. Beyond being a useful reference for why you thought a particular article, website, book, etc was useful to you, it also serves as a fantastic history of your artistic practice over time.
An annotated bibliography is an expanded form of the bibliography: in addition to a list of researched books, articles, films, links and documents with author and other pertinent information, each citation/listing is followed by a brief description and critical evaluation of the citation. Importantly this annotation can include page numbers of favourite quotes or passages (very useful!). Here is a link to useful tips on creating your annotated bibliography.
[2]
[3]>
PLEASE PLACE your annotated bibliography in the Discussion section of your page (see the panel at the top left of the page). This way it is easy to navigate to and refer to. You can add to it each week as necessary and by the end of term, you will have a quick reference and 'snapshot' of your terms work. The most important thing to remember is to make this bibliography useful for you, therefore, feel free to customize it as you see fit for your project and research (this is not meant as a typical academic A.B. but rather a resource that will be useful for you in the future. Therefore, you may choose to organize it according to subject headings, or subject headings in chronological order of your reading/experiencing a work (rather than the whole list in alphabetical order of the author's last names). I recall that many times during my undergrad I would want to grab a quote for a paper, not remembering what page it was on...this will go a long way to mitigate that frustration. This list can be added to over years and serve as one of your most useful research tools in your professional lives.
Happy hunting.

Week 5

please check your email for your Doodle calendar sign up for skype meetings. Come prepared to the skype meeting with questions or new work to talk about. If you are unable to meet Thursday but still want a skype meeting, please email me to let me know what days/times you are available. - as per usual please continue with your research and studio work and post updates. Happy trails. Thank you

reading of interest Hi all, here is a reading that I recommended in advance of a talk I was invited to present last Thursday (January 31, 2013), centring on Flow(2009) for Interdisciplinary Forums [5] on the Face and Representation. There will be an upload of the talk within the coming weeks that I can post for those interested. Here is the link to the reading. [6] there are some interesting ideas in this article, enjoy.

Quick look schedule week 4 (please refer to course outline for rest of terms dates and assignments)

Week 4


1. Conduct research and start studio work. 2. Report on work for the wiki. Please look at your peers posts and comment. 3. make note - of texts with Author/title or link, other links, or other resources in your weekly report.

Quick look schedule week 3 (please refer to course outline for rest of terms dates and assignments)

Week 3


1. Create a proposal for your terms work and research. This can be a number of discrete works around a central theme or trajectory of research, it can be one focused project with several iterations and experiments. In addition, your weekly posts should include research, links to research, readings, examples of your work etc. (in week 4, I will go over how to create a useful annotated bibliography that you can keep and add to during your upcoming professional career!) - As this is a six credit practices course, you are expected to produce a substantial project with pertinent research. If you would like to see some examples of varying projects done in the past, you can browse these:
(3 credit directed studies course [7]) ;
( 3 credit, attached to her grad project: [8])

2. If you don’t already have it, download Skype (free), create a Skype ID and post it at the top of your individual page. You may choose to do individual meetings via skype, if need be, during my "office hours" (you can simply email me requesting a skype meeting)...but I will also schedule skype meetings in week Five. Schedule to come once I have had a chance to look at your project proposals.

3. Be open to trying things you have always wanted to research and explore but have not yet had the opportunity to. It is fine to explore areas that you are unfamiliar with or gain skill sets that you do not currently have. Just for examples, in past iterations of this class we have had:
- a painter with no previous experience in music, create a score for a 9 piece ensemble (it was actually performed!) base on gestural drawings done from films starring Marilyn Munroe.
- a video artist create music from weaving (inspired by the work of Iannis Xenakis).
- a performance artist with an interest in fashion create garments that became sculptures. This student repeated the class and developed his work and research into his grad project.
- a visual artist (with no previous experience in music), write and perform original songs.
- a visual artist who's practice was centred in drawing, taught himself how to sew and developed a body of work that he then honed for his graduation project. This project won a Helen Pitt Award.
- a video-based student who wrote a novelette, replete with her own ink drawings (of the fantastic world in which her story was set) and a sound track cd that the reader would listen to while reading in order to create an apt atmosphere.
...so you can follow your hearts desire with your project. I do expect meaningful engagement with whatever you take on as well as weekly reports on progress and research (more about this next week!)

FVIM 331: Experimental Practices Online


This senior studio course acts as a habitat and forum for a critical and artistic development of praxis. This course is intended to prepare you for and hone your self-initiated and directed creative explorations. Within the context of experimentation, these explorations will be realized and developed beyond your current repertoire. This course will give you the opportuntiy to conduct and present research that supports your studio work and help you articulate the unfamiliar. Experimental Practices offers a supportive structure wherein students challenge their own methodologies and process. Students will take on projects that will expand their understanding of their own artistic choices, conceptual proclivities, skill set and professional relationships. Students are encouraged to experiment by exploring outside their current mediums and skillsets thereby challenging creative habits. This expansion of repertoire is intended to enhance current studio and professional practice. A high level of self-directed activity is expected, along with online participation in presentations, critiques and feedback on the work and research of your peers. Students will report on the relation of their research to their studio production. This is a 6 credit course and as such a substantial project and written research component (with links|bibliography) is expected.

Experimental Practices Online Community Philosophy
This new wiki is the beginning of an ongoing community of individuals interested in Experimental Practice. You are encouraged as students to remain part of the community after your course and come back to see what new work is being undertaken here. Faculty are encouraged to start new pages if so inclined. You are welcome to continue to contribute feedback if you are motivated by research or work you find here. You are all encouraged to be an ongoing part of this community by also preserving your page (thereby your research, work and links): future students will benefit from your contributions to this online library of experimental practice. Hopefully with ongoing contributions across terms and years, this wiki will become a valuable research tool for current and past students alike. In successive terms/years, individuals visiting particular pages will be able to also see links to pages of that individuals cohort by visiting the class student links bottom of the page. Happy digging.

Quick look schedule weeks 1-2 (please refer to course outline for rest of terms dates and assignments)

Week 1


Introductions, familiarize yourself with our wiki space, experiment with the options here by doing a couple of trail posts. Assignment: 1.Explore the wiki, look at the course link and information posted there. Have a look at the archived courses where you can see some of the past work undertaken by students. 2. After you have logged into the wiki using your ECU username and password, click on your name in the upper right hand corner near the log-in area. This will take you to your profile page. You can add profile info here. 3. Go to our course page and click on your name in the class list area. Write a paragraph about yourself: your interests, past and current practice. Upload one – five images of your past work (don’t worry if it is very different from what you would like to explore in this class).

Week 2

Ubu.com Assignment: 1. Address the following points in your assignment (upload assignments to your individual pages on this wiki:
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?)
2. experimental practice (is this term an oxymoron?)
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.)
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.
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.Include a link to this work in your paragraph.

Note: this assignment can include links to works, images, sound files, articles, news items, groups, social or political affiliations, movements, or ANYTHING that you feel motivated to include as part of your own interests in this terms work. You also may add to this particular assignment over the course of our term if your perspective changes or you come across pertinent material.

Something to keep in mind this week: start thinking about what you would like to pursue for a studio project (or series of projects) (see next week)


The purpose of this project is to help you define for yourself what experimental work is and assist you in establishing and creating your terms work and research. 2. Each student review all assignments. Each person please comment on a fellow students work for which you feel affinity or excited. 3. Also, each student please comment on the student alphabetically on the list above you (first name can comment on the last name on the list)
