Class 12

Hey class,

Today we will work on a lot of project management / planning documents to help our installations go more smoothly. We will also take a look at your project descriptions and anticipate any potential sticking points or difficulties. Finally we will work to refine our project descriptions.

Class 12 notes


Prompts for writing


What assumptions did you make about your site?

Were these assumptions proven true?

What things did you not anticipate (number of visitors, light conditions, noise level, etc)?



How does your project refer to the chosen site?

Are other viewers able to make this connection without an explanation?

If prompting is required, how would you foresee including this in the installation?


What role did building mockups contribute to the project? What about prototypes?

What part of the project was the hardest to build?

Which part ended up being the easiest to construct?

How did you contribute to building the project?



How do you see the project changing from prototype to install at its proper location?

Does the temporary spot help to visualize the project?

If not, what type of space would be necessary for a more accurate preview of your project?

What difficulties do you see if you were to carry out the installation on your site?

Class 8

Hey Class,

We will spend the first half of the class presenting our midterm projects. We will then walk downstairs to take a look at Lu Yang’s installation in the front gallery, and talk about bringing technology into our installations moving forward.
