undergrad making project

Welcome to SFAI! To new students who are registered in Contemporary Practice (CP-100):

We have developed a short project for you to work on in advance of your arrival. It is meant to acquaint you with the kind of critical thinking, looking, and making that you’ll be doing as a student here. This project will be discussed in the first session of Contemporary Practice.

Assignment #1: “Remixing Change”

Due Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Most of you are getting ready for your SFAI experience and part of the process of getting ready is thinking about "change" in relation to your new location for living. Your experience at SFAI will undoubtedly include a “remix” of your previous home life with a new one. We ask that you remix media into a project that includes an aspect of your current home life with how you imagine your upcoming changes in San Francisco. Please combine at least two media including: paint, sculpture, film, photographs, captured sound, performance, etc.

Be prepared to share your project on the second class day of Contemporary Practice. When presenting your work to the class, be ready to discuss your choices.

Why did you:

                  Use certain media?

                  Focus on certain content?

                  Interpret the idea of home in the way that you did?
