Current Assessment Tasks: Unit CULMS008B Conceive, develop & realise exhibition designs
Graduate Show Invitation & Title Design
Today we will try and finalise the invitation designs based on the paper squares idea that people agreed to last week. I will provide the 7.5 x 7.5 cm paper squares so that you can start working on those.
We also still need a title for the show.
Aims: To have a title and layout by the end of class.
You should now be underway with your Ghost Signs item selection. Today you should start working as a group on the text for your exhibition selection. Consider the following when writing your exhibition essay (one page should be adequate):
Stefan has provided me with several folders of old images he has been researching from the PROV and State Library. They are organised by suburb and I will make them available on the shared server so you can grab some folders that relate to your localities - these might help you finalise your selection of items - if you have not had much luck finding related content, these images might provide the basis for a seleciton.
Stefan would also like to come back in the last class on June 27 to ask you some questions about your thoughts and impressions of working on the project. We'd like to know if you were engaged and interested in the project, and if it has made you look at your neighbourhood differently (amongst other things). He is also keen to see any ghost signs you may have found that don't relate to Lewis & Skinner - he is considering setting up a separate archive for ghost signs from anywhere in Melbourne/Victoria.
You must start documenting your selected items in a word document and include any additional material you have found or created such as photographs of sites as they are now, any research finds such as articles, websites, old photographs etc.
Don't forget to properly reference any content that you find which is not your own. You can use Web URLs, article references, or if it's your own photograph, make sure you include your name as the creator of the image and when and where it was taken. We want to make sure that when we put things online, we give credit where it's due to any creators of content - this means having your own name linked to photographs etc.
Aims: by the end of class you should have documented the items you have selected from the archive in a Word document, and you should be making plans for how you will write your exhibition essay.
use any remaining time to work on your blogs - upload some images of your work in progress, post links to content you have viewed, you can even post your ideas and research for the current assessment tasks.
