Untitled Installation V

This is what I presented for the final show in my fourth year of a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Whitecliffe College of Art and Design.

The installation was of a cardboard sculpture as you can see with three films, and a second sculpture that had four speakers each playing a different track of the sound of tape being ripped from the roll and of the sound of cutting the corrugated cardboard, in the sculpture it sounded quite muffled and odd.

Here's a film of the installation:

You may view the three films here:

Love, over

Left right, rong right

Pear film was too big to upload to blogspot but it is here on youtube:

“When you are dealing with language, there is no edge that the picture drops over or drops off . . . Language, because it is the most non objective thing we have ever developed in this world, never stops” (Weiner as cited in Osborne, 2002, pg. 230).

Untitled Installation IV

Practice installation for my end of year show, with the two different sides of cardboard, and the sound in the same sculpture as the films rather than on its own as in Untitled V.

Also one video was taken out from this one and swapped with Love, over from Installation I.
You can view the film Letter stacking here:

My boyfriend filmed me masticating

This is actually from May but I never uploaded it.
For our Fourth Year Show at Whitecliffe College we worked with instructional art, all writing instructions and putting them in a hat for each other to pick out and make art with=)
The instructions I got were:

Make food,
Chew and spit out, chew and spit out,
Offer food to exhibition guests.

This was my display with recipes offered to the guests.

The video is available here:
