The Ideal Studio

Where else but your sketchbook would you entertain the idea of an "Ideal Studio"? A completely hypothetical "place" that has all of the things you would need to be creative and productive..?
I ask you to think about the physical layout and the circumstances that have proved productive for you. Consider how you might create a "place" where those circumstances could be replicated and accessed repeatedly, A STUDIO

This Week

For Tuesday we will be working on formats for the presentation of your work in the conceptual sketchbook and the traditional sketchbook. We will also still be working on the large collage drawing from the printmaking room. We also will be scanning and copying work and preparing files for uploading. I will work with some of you to set up digital versions of your sketchbooks.
Bring your sketchbooks and blank CD's to move files.

Print Room Drawings

The print room drawing project combined with a photographic view of the room. This project is unfinished. Needing either further coherence of design or more intentional fragmentation or focus. All of the drawing are attached to the scroll by tape and can be moved, multiplied or rearranged. This project is still open to modification.

Tuesday in 202

For Tuesday we will be combining our drawings from the print room into a collage on the wall of room 202. Those of you who missed the drawing session should come in with sketches of the printmaking room looking toward the litho press area. In making the collage we will attempt to reconstitute the room with the drawing frames fitting into place according to the point of view.

For this collage we are keeping in mind the Polaroid collages of David Hockney. In these collages Hockney is continuing to explore the cubist concept of presenting multiple views of an object in the same pictorial space.
