Final Piece

Changes:

  • Taking away the dream journal – I realised that my space had become a minimalist set-up, and the dream journal was confusing this aesthetic.
  • This has pushed me out of my confort zone greatly as now my exhibition space lacks anything I have hand created (except the cabinet and frames which I made myself). I am used to creating pieces with something physical like paint or textiles, so this piece is something new for me.

Artist Statement

F’Dreams and how they help us’

‘How dreams psychologically help us’

 

  • Falling, being chased, and having your teeth fall out are the most common dreams our minds create. Each of these are portrayed through stop motions, with the interpretation shown to follow. I want to increase the understanding that our dreams are helpful to us, if we consider how we interpret the dream, we can apply this to our daily life and become psychologically helped.
  • Falling, being chased, and having your teeth fall out are the most common dreams our minds create. I wish to expand the understanding of dreams, and raise the knowledge that they can be helpful to us through our own interpretation and application to our daily lives.

Final Piece Reflective

25/05/2017

Feelings and analysis:

  • My final piece has gone through many changes the designing stage and the making stage.

What went well/badly:

  • I believe these changes were essential to push myself forward and continue developing.
  • I was able to note what was and wasn’t working with some help from my peers and tutors. This enabled me to see how the piece appeared to the audience.
  • At one point, when I was deciding about the felt, I was really torn between keeping it in to make the piece look aesthetically pleasing, or removing it and have the piece reflect my concept more. I decided to remove the felt and have my piece display my concept more successful, as ultimately this is more important and this is how I want to audience to see it.
  • Having to let go of something practical that I had spent time creating was hard, and it left my final piece not looking how I had imagined. But, I know this will be more effective for the audience and I think it extend my journey through FMP.

What I have learned and how it will help me in the future:

  • I have learned that sometimes, a piece won’t look the same as it does in my head, and this is okay.
  • I have also learned the importance of letting go of something I have spent time making, and accepting that sometimes it simply doesn’t work.
