T1-MMT-P5-s4 Presentation of sample p5-4

Presentation of work for assessment is a challenge for distance learners. Virtually all the OCA students face it, but Mixed Media for Textiles includes challenges of fragile / over-sized / heavy / temporary samples. Postage from Australia is another issue, then with my “collection of vessels: an exploration of materials and space” I’ve made it still harder. How can I present the physical evidence of that?

At least part of my submission must be actual work mailed and able to be picked up and examined by the assessors, but I will need to augment that with material in my blog. So while sampling vessels I’m also sampling how to present them in space.

This first attempt is a presentation of sample p5-4, initially discussed 31-Jan-2016.

First a simple video showing a rotating view of the sample. No voice because I was trying to keep it short and the focus on the vessel – but I suspect it’s deadly boring.

Next my discussion of the sample, trying to point out what intrigues me about it. This is heavily influenced by Ceramic Points of View: ‘Cup on Base’, by Gillian Lowndes on the Victoria and Albert Museum website In particular Alison Britton picks up and move the work as she discusses it, and it really helped me to see her point of view and the mass and dimensionality of the piece.

I would really appreciate any feedback on the usefulness or otherwise of these, so any comments or suggestions are particularly welcome.

In my discussion I mention sketching the sample. I haven’t posted those pages yet, so a preview is below.
