Related studies project week #6: Make it move.
Rule: Don’t stop.
I had originally made a short video which I thought was too much of a literal interpretation of the assignment. Instead, I moved on from the short film to making a sculpture. I chose to create something that would encourage the viewer to participate in performing something repetitive. This useless spinning wheel was my answer to this problem set.
The 5 elements I considered in making this project:
- to have instructions to follow
- to challenge the perception of the familiar
- to create an object whose image would suffice to understand its meaning
- to allude to perpetuity
- to evoke the absurdity, like Magritte did
