1) Please make/get a one-minute video AND a still photo of ten different individuals: simple head-shots looking straight at the camera. You can do the shooting or ask people to send a video to you. Use any camera you want, but please translate into a format that will play on a Macintosh computer. Bring these to class Thursday. This content will allow us to explore, together, what happens with changes in scale, juxtaposition, placement, etc.
2) Concentrating on the three considerations: 1) the unique characteristics of the media gallery itself (size, five entrances/exits; a crossroads of the museum; its context as part of RISD); 2) The audience (primarily RISD community (?); number of people who go through); 3) Five month duration (What changes? How to change it? When to change it? Why to change it?)
Based on the above, create detailed sketches AND written descriptions of how you would use 100 (or MORE) portraits to create a gallery installation. (Sound, sculpture, video, still photography, text, etc. are all possible elements.) Be specific about materials, placement, traffic, construction. Come to class Thursday with your sketches, tools, computers, phones (and chargers!) and materials to work with. We will continue collaborating.
