With this project, I will successfully move from crafting individual pieces to creating larger scale installation work in a public space. I will be working on component pieces of the installation during concerts. Public will participate in making lights along with me. We will discuss creative re-use of materials and other impacts. 2: This project will investigate and determine solutions for the technical lighting needs of this type of installation. Goal is to find low energy or solar options to use for this type of outdoor installation. One or two viable lighting solutions will be determined as best method for this and future projects.
I created twenty-six component pieces (individual ball structures) which made up a larger installation piece that was exhibited at two music concerts. For me, evaluation of the success of a project which entails creation of a final work is that the project gets done. This consists of steps and phases leading up to completion: collection of adequate material, processing of materials, exploring creative ideas, prototyping and investigating options for final installation. Partnering with appropriate entity to determine a venue for installation. Engaging with the audience. Understanding the work and the process of mounting an installation. 2: I found and utilized a lighting option that fit my technical and creative goals for this grant installation project. I needed to find a lighting option that allowed me to fill parameters of the project: Does not require a plug-in electrical source; Creates adequate lighting of individual components without obtrusive wiring or excessive weight; Does not require purchase of numerous batteries for the multiple events and sessions planned for the project; and fits well with my general creative parameters of being environmentally conscientious.
