DISAPPOINTMENT

Got up today to go along to the Bothy for a few hours, because I was working last night and tonight so couldn’t make the whole day, and then I got ready and then sat down to have a coffee to wake myself up a bit more then I fell asleep. 

Really disappointed to miss the last day in what has been a great week. 

Even though I haven’t enjoyed every task we’ve been set, in terms for providing lots of thinking points and new perspectives on things in the art world I think thats what’s been the most useful for me personally.

Reflection on Day 1 at Bothy Project

Unfortunately I was late because I was working Sunday night and attempted to get a power hour before so I wasn’t dead all day but then overslept. 

But everyone passed on what we were to do for the project - to choose a 2d piece from the exhibition and create a 3d piece in response to this. 

I hadn’t been to the exhibition yet which I’m actually really glad of. Even though I really should have been already but I liked the blindness it gave me to go through the task with. Everything was from my initial reaction. 

It was hard to chose a piece and having already seen what people were working on too. The piece I was most drawn to was Douglas Gordon’s 24 hour Psycho. Which I would consider a 2d piece though I acknowledge it could be argued otherwise. 

Thinking about the movement, how it would look on film stock and Duchamps movement studies, I sort of responded more to the motion I imagined in my head and the ideas of set design and abstract shapes that could be drawn from that than the piece itself. I think I was more drawn to the piece because of how it made me react. I didn’t imagine myself just creating a 3d representation of what was on the canvas etc. Which is all I could imagine with the majority of the other 2D pieces.

However I felt as if I hadn’t responded to brief/task correctly because of this. Everyone elses looked a lot more literal in some sense. 

Though I’m not sure I liked my pieces in the end. I think there was a lot more going on in other peoples as they developed throughout the day. It was an interesting first task though.
