Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

My professional goal for Object Stories is to create a comprehensive body of work that suggests a multi-faceted portraiture of the contemporary Minnesota landscape. I want to laud humble objects and the people associated with them as a visual narrative that suggests the depth of attitudes and impacts we make on the land. I want to secure a solo show of this body of work as a way to expose my perspective to a larger audience and gain regional recognition as well as build my portfolio as an advancement tool for more opportunities. Personally, I hope to train a lens on objects within the landscape that we take for granted by suggesting that for some people, these objects hold a great deal of meaning. By visually interpreting these objects, my goal is to create a platform for greater understanding and appreciation of the value of objects that often times go unnoticed. Timeline: April 2015: Establish relationships with landowners affected by CapX2020, interview with audio recording, document powerlines, ping/identifying views of affected land-drawings, and order materials. May: Continue interviews with landowners, and establish relationships with lawnmowers. June: Begin documenting/interviewing lawnmowers, start weaving patterns inspired by lawnmowing research, continue interviews of landowners, and begin interpretation studies of CapX2020. July: Studio critique, establish relationship with gallerists, continue research/documentation of lawnmowers, editing audio from landowners, first weaving study due, 5 CapX2020 drawings due, and permission for billboard sites obtained. August: Billboard A design print ready, conclude research phase of CapX2020, conclude audio editing, and continue lawnmowing studies. September: Conclude research phase for lawnmowers, research documentation of hunting blinds, second weaving study due, and 5 CapX2020 drawings due. October: Document blinds, and visual interpretation of CapX2020 Blind drawings. November: Studio critique, continued documentation of blinds, continue blind drawings, and present Billboard design B print-ready. December: Conclude blind research, documentation.
