100 Images

Caroline gave me a very useful exercise to do which involves taking 100 images and sorting them. I had several folders of images that I’d been collecting from over the course of the last year and a half – some of them are images of contemporary art but a lot of them are just images I liked and felt drawn to.

I did a first sort where I used all of the images and found places for them.
Then I did a second and third sort where I looked for specific aspects relating to my practice and content for my oral presentation. I added in a few of my own works so I could find their place in the image groupings.

FIRST SORT

IMG_1810ARTEFACT


IMG_1808ENVIRONMENTAL

IMG_1806EXPERIENTIAL

IMG_1809DIAGRAMATIC

IMG_1812UNNERVING / OTHERWORDLY

IMG_1813COSTUME AND RITUAL

IMG_1811ANCESTRY

IMG_1807ICONOGRAPHY

SECOND SORT

IMG_1815PERFORMANCE

IMG_1816PERFORMATIVE

IMG_1817BOTH PERFORMANCE AND PERFORMATIVE (I actually wondered whether the Ren Ri hive work should be in this group because the bees themselves are actually performing while the viewer observes the work)

THIRD SORT

IMG_1818PERFORMANCE TO CAMERA

IMG_1819OBEJCT CONVERSATIONS, BOTH HETEROGENEOUS AND HOMOGENEOUS

I’m going to keep these images, add to them and continue my sorting process to distill further ideas. I find the sorting and thinking to be really useful and I wonder if I’ll come back and move some of the images out of the groups I’ve placed them in? There are a number of images that appear over and over in my sorts and I feel those ones are important to my practice.
