This week I planned to teach a lesson on public art and installation on Wednesday but we had to postpone the presentation after a minor technological snafu. Instead, we continued work on the mural. All of the major shapes have been laid down now and we've begun work on some of the more representational aspects of the composition. We've started adding a striped pattern to each major color field and have scheduled time to begin pulling the composition onto the floor of the space. Dorian prepared 3 cardboard models of benches that could be constructed out of cardboard and installed on the side of the hallway (pictures to follow!). The students voted on their favorite option and discussed more ways that they could make the left side of the hallway into an installation space. We're currently considering designing that mural to act as a background for a line of cardboard cutout figures.
