The Art Assignment - 10. Make A Rug
This assignment. God. Starting off, not going to lie, I didn’t like it. I was doing it badly, I thought it was hard and so I was going to give up after the yellow t-shirt. But I thought that looked too small and pitiful to post on Tumblr so I found 3 more t-shirts and worked them in. 4 t-shirts into the overall rug and I suddenly realised where I was going wrong. From there I loved it! I loved watching it grow and creating it. Then I was busy for a week and I came back to it with a pink t-shirt and kinda messed up, but kept going. Despite all the struggles that unexpectedly came with this I’m pretty proud of my creation! 10 t-shirts, an old pair of favourite jeans (that ripped and left them unwearable) and 1 long roll of blue material later and I have a little rug to be proud of (and a sizeable bag of scraps!). As for it’s use, I’ve a little bedside table that it covers nicely, plus a friend for it :)
(Now time to catch up and get working on the next assignment!)

theparttimehistorian:

Here is my contribution for this week’s Art Assignment. I have always revered George Seurat, so I thought it was fitting to let his style and technique influence my own pieces. Many of his sketches/studies have a stillness and mystique about them that I rather enjoy. Subjects are often silhouetted against a frenzy of lines and shadows. I noticed Seurat’s drawings had an inherent grid pattern to them as well. With these I used thicker paper to get the textured effect.
I am satisfied with how they turned out! I’ll see what else I can do with Seurat as my influence.

We are pleased to share our interview with Sarah Urist Green curator, host, and creator of the Art Assignment, a weekly video series produced by PBS Digital Studios that Sarah hosts with her husband, author John Green (The Fault in Our Stars, Paper Towns). In each episode they explore different facets of art history, visit an artist’s studio, and have the artist give an art assignment to viewers. A thriving online community has come out of the show of people creating and sharing their art assignments!

Watch all episodes on Tumblr and Youtube and read on as Sarah discusses the show’s inception, her hopes for the future, and more!

So glad to talk to this excellent organization with an excellent blog. You should follow them!

Who are your influences? Who’s asking?: Peggy Noland, a fashion designer, and Garry Noland, an artist who happens to be her father. We visit Peggy’s shop in Kansas City, Missouri, and she and her dad give us the assignment to make an artwork in the style of someone whose work you admire.

EPISODE 11 INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Choose an artist or a maker.

2. Get to know their work and practice.

3. Make something in that style.

4. Upload it to the social media platform of your choice using #theartassignment, telling us who you’ve chosen and how they’ve influenced you.

5. Fame & glory. (Your work might be featured in an upcoming episode.)

#the art assignment 9 OFF Jo Goren Title : About Time
I have been a fan of Off for some time now and related to Lauren Zoll’s  Video. The Photo on the left is a place I have documented often for my own pleasure so I thought it worked well for this assignment. The image on the right is a reflection “off” an unopened Prosecco bottle in my kitchen waiting to be popped. I have been drawing, painting, and illustrating on and off for most of my life with the exclusion of the last 7 years, I know a long time .The art assignment is inspiration to get me back in gear as my husband and I get ready to see our daughter off to college this fall. With appreciation . Jo Goren

The Art Assignment “Off”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zy7qhRUM1uI
1.Turn off a Screen
2.Take a photo of only the screen
Though I am in love with reflections and try to incorporate them into my art as much as possible, I never actually set out to do this assignment. A few nights ago my mum had the idea to turn off all electronic devices, light candles and play a board game as a family. Unfortunately there wasn’t much enthusiasm for the board game :(
However, the candles sitting on the table reflected off the TV screen creating this AMAZING image and I just had to capture it. Because it was dark in the room my camera struggled a bit but this is what I eventually got. I love the rainbow effect and at one point I could see two circles of light, both with colours surrounding them. One picture shows the candles with the TV in the background. The only thing that bugs me about these photos is that you can sort of see people in the reflection, though we are pretty blurry.
It only occurs to me now that this reflection was created because we TURNED EVERYTHING OFF. If we had never switched off all our devices and lights, those candles would never have been lit and I would never have seen this reflection. I think that is super cool and it proves that turning things off can be just as productive as leaving things on.  :)

Super nice. Thanks for participating, and for so thoughtfully sharing your thoughts about it.

My computer screen reflects a beautiful view when the computer is off. We were at our summer cottage and I was sitting with my computer on my usual place. Suddenly I realised that the view my computer reflected was quite beautiful and I took this picture.
This assignment got me thinking why am I sitting inside in front of my computer when there is a whole sunny world outside to be explored and enjoyed. 
Also, I really should clean the screen. 

Don’t clean your screen! At least not for the sake of “Off.” From what I’ve seen, dirt and fingerprints almost always improve the quality of the resulting images.

Megan Gould’s photo collection, Surface Tension, takes a look at the fingerprint oils on iPad screens to see how users interact with their screens. It reminded me of The Art Assignment’s Off with Lauren Zoll. It’s so interesting to see how very different the patterns are. Some are very spotty, others, you can see the user made big swoopy movements. Fascinating.

This is so cool! Thanks for alerting us to it.

Are you overwhelmed by the plethora of art and art-related activities going on in the world? We’re here to help! Here are some ideas for how to learn about what’s going on in the world of contemporary art. 

I’m also pleased to announce The Art Assignment Book Club! The first read will be Dave Hickey’s Air Guitar: Essays on Art & Democracy. Try to read it by August 1, and we’ll discuss it in a video soon after. 

If you missed it, here’s my list of online art resources

If you don’t want to buy Air Guitar or borrow it from your library, you can find a link to the titular essay here, and and another essay, “Romancing the Looky-Loos,” here. You can also read an interview with Hickey in The Believer
