Conceptual Art: Joan’s Arc

For my conference project I had to acknowledge my obsessions, give in to what felt urgent–to what I felt umbilically tied to. I decided to take on a difficult story, one that was gnawing at my conscious, unrelenting in it’s…

Conceptual Art: Finding A Form

This project for me illuminated the inner workings of process and practice, and ultimately by the end, through necessary frustration and confusion, I had a better grasp on the mechanics of making and bringing ideas to fruition. Previously I felt…

Conceptual Art: Language Process

My Conference project began with me reflecting on past experiences throughout my life and joking with a few family members about those experiences.  I have dyslexia, a language-based learning difference.  Growing up, I would often, and still to this day,…

Conceptual Art: Feedback Mother

My conference project, titled “Feedback Mother”, focuses on definitions of motherhood and the labor of care. This is a durational performance piece that lasted from 10:00 am on Thursday, December 3rd to 6:33 pm on Friday, December 4th. The entirety…

Conceptual Art: No Word Was Ever As Effective As a Rightly Timed Pause

Mark Twain Concept Art from the <3 Amid the pandemic and extraordinary times our planet is experiencing, I have recognized that our lives are busy and our minds are even busier. My conference project has stemmed completely from the idea…

Conceptual Art: We’re all out 2020

I first began to flirt with push-pin art at the end of last school year when, bored between classes, I decorated a pub cup with push-pins taken from the room’s jar. In every room in Heimbold, there are push-pins dumped…

Conceptual Art: Form Progression

Conceptual Art–Form-FinalConfProgression/ YouLookLikeMyDeadFriend or MakingSomethingOutOfSomethingThatWantsToBeNothing or: a whole thesis on a process in likely more detail than was requested I’ve spent a lot of time over the past…four years? Honestly, I don’t ever remember how long it’s been, because she’s…

Conceptual Art: We Could Be Anyone

The beginning of this conference project started much as many of my other conceptual art pieces had begun: I looked around to figure out what I had to work with. In other pieces, this process manifested in a much more…

Conceptual Art: Finding a Form

The assignment to “find evidence” began as most things in life probably do; confusion. Rather than finding a specific process to try and complete this task, I instead searched for meaning in the topic itself. Assuming I would need to…

Conceptual Art: OKAYNESS

My conference project, titled “OKAYNESS,” has evolved conceptually quite a bit since I started working on it. When I first proposed the project, I had a lot of different ideas about what specifically I wanted to come across in the…

Conceptual Art: Conference Project

My conference project this semester really began with a simple desire: to make a secret society as a conceptual art piece. I’ve always been fascinated with secret societies. Something about the ritual of it all—the handshakes, the codewords, the dress—has…

Conceptual Art: Conference Work

My project came to be from an interest in an idea, word, motion, and or feeling.  I am still unsure how to categorise it, and believe that it can be a part of all, some, none, or something not listed…

Conceptual Art: Conceptual Jewelry

Why I started it? I made artist presentation about Charlene Modena. And I like her conceptual jewelry. I think wearing meaningful conceptual jewelry is very cool. And my ideal career is jewelry designer… Why this topic? My theme for this project…

Conceptual Art: Finding a Form

One of our first larger assignments in Conceptual Art was to collect evidence of a concept or idea and apply three different forms to the same evidence. My process of finding a form was a difficult one, stemming from my…

Conceptual Art: Finding a Form/RCM

This class began with an exercise in expressing a single idea or thought, a form or collection process of evidence, in various incarnations. This could look like really quite anything, and, initially, I could think of just about nothing. I…

Conceptual Art: Finding a Form

Creating three different projects under the premise of “finding a form” took me through quite a lot of states- artistic, emotional, and otherwise. Initially, when tasked with collecting evidence, I wanted to find physical evidence of the passage of time….

Conceptual Art: Finding A Form

The Body Keeps The Score I found that the methodologies we employed in our Finding a Form project provided an engaging contextual framework for making, one which allowed us as artists both to be held by and also free to revise…

Conceptual Art: Finding A Form

My process with the ‘Finding a Form’ series of exercises was one that did not solidify my idea as it progressed. Instead, I found my idea stuck, oscillating around the similar forms I chose instead of growing and becoming clear….

Conceptual Art: Finding a Form

My experience with “finding a form” began with a misunderstanding of the prompt. Originally, I had thought “Collect Evidence” was a call to make a work of conceptual art using the idea of evidence, rather than just compiling loose photos…

Conceptual Art : Finding a Form

When I first started to find evidence of my art work, my birthday was coming…..So I use my birthday to be my theme.
