Internship at the Rising Sun Arts Centre, Reading

Autumn Assessment 2nd and 3rd Year, Professional Experience

During summer I had an opportunity to undertake an internship at The Rising Sun Arts Centre in Reading. During This time I have helped with The Move Up Project, within which I was working with people with learning disabilities on various projects. Few of which were the Art and Creative making (painting, and sculpture making towards festival), Zap Magazine- helping them to create a magazine from scratch which would then be published during winter. Zap Comedy – becomes another incredible project within the centre – I have been helping with rehearsing a performance for the Here Comes The Sun festival, which was quite challenging, but very rewarding. We have also started planning Peter Pan for the winter show. The other project which runs within the centre is the Bookface, the art book fair, we have been working towards creating art books for the fair. I have also run a workshop on Paper Crane making, during which we have created a paper crane from 5m x 5m paper.

Here Comes The Sun, becomes an annual festival within the centre which brings our vibrant community together. I have been helping with the preparation for the festival, and during the festival, which was an amazing experience working on such huge event and with an amazing group of people. During the festival I have helped organizing children games and arts, supporting the Zap Comedy group, Photography and helping around the festival.

‘0’ Zine

Autumn Assessment 2nd and 3rd Year, CV, Studio

I have decided to experiment with how I can share my art with the audience outside of the gallery space.

Furthermore, considering what happened in Italy in August (the earthquake) I wanted to experiment more with minimalistic painting in order to give the audience a choice of what they want to see. So here are the photographs of the Zine ‘0’. It will be exhibited in The Woodley Library, as part of the exhibition ‘Art in a Library’ from 1st of Sep – 1st of Oct.

The usage of animals for human purposes

Autumn Assessment 2nd and 3rd Year, Uncategorized

While this technology could save up humans lives, this technology also propaganda the usage of animals in scientific experiments for the sake of humans. It seems quite wrong, as the 3d printing of human organs, was found successful  and promising , the scientists are working on the development in that area even further.

Photoshop Mock-Up Experimentation

Autumn Assessment 2nd and 3rd Year, Summer Assessment 2nd and 3rd Year, Uncategorized

To move with the idea of painted pictures further, I have decided to see how it might look in large scale presentation in space, close to the gallery space.

experiment 2

I hope for the Summer Exhibition to include them into my installation, as they become viral for the understanding of it. In ideal I would want them on three walls, and two machines in the middle, so the viewer could circulate around them and play with them.

Experimenting with Waves

Autumn Assessment 2nd and 3rd Year, Summer Assessment 2nd and 3rd Year, Uncategorized

So when all the parts were painted, I could now put the wood into the water and glue the lower part to the tank, so it would not float.

When it dried, I was able to test it with water. The visible electronic parts, are going to be covered for the exhibition.

What I have learned from this test:

-I still need to create a bank to make the waves grow (Tsunami like)

-I need to seal the tank more, because it can not handle that much weight of the water, and starts leaking.

Leaking:

Plinths

Autumn Assessment 2nd and 3rd Year, Summer Assessment 2nd and 3rd Year, Uncategorized

So because of my idea to exhibit Tornado and the Tsunami in the perfect white surrounding, I would need to make the perfect plinths for it.

As in the midway exhibition I tried to use the used plinth for the Tsunami, it did not work well, as the plinth was not high enough, as it should have been the same hight as Tornado’s plinth, so they would look coherent, as well as it did not fit the perfectly witht the size of the tank.

So I took the measurements of the hight from the Tornado plinth, and the depth and width of the tank. I have decided to use 12mm MDF as it would be stable and not too heavy to move.

Also as I took the critique from Autumn term exhibition, I have decided to clean the plinth that I have used for the Tornado, so it would look smooth and perfect, without bumps and signs of age:) I would have built a new one, but the tornado machine was already built to fit onto it, so I needed to work on it quite a loot, to make it look perfect.
