Jennah Marie Porter Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Clandes(ne  Communica(on:  secret  conversa(ons  with  inanimate  objects  
  • 2.                  Crea(ng  Randomness:      Step  1:  I  slice  my  morning  fruit.  Count  the  seeds  in  my  oranges.  Count  the  seeds  in  my  strawberries.  Count  the  seeds  in  my  kiwi  fruit.  Count  the  seeds  in  my  peach.  Add  the  numbers  together  =  64  and  divide  by  my  lucky  number,  16  =  4.  
  • 3. Step  2:  I  travel  4km  from  home  base  in  any  random  direc(on  looking  for  discarded  objects,  moments,  people,   thoughts  or  sounds  that  remind  me  of  this  word.    
  • 4. Data  collected  at  random  loca(on:    
  • 5.  
  • 6. The  bow.   bow   childhood   ribbon   line   Innocence   her   form   lost  loop   LiJle  girl   changeable   femininity   beauty   gender   goodness   ostenta(ous   giH   prize   bound   decora(ve   significance   immascula(on   winner   Bow  (e   constric(ng  flamboyant   decadent   Fundraiser   dandy   Breast  cancer   silk   wealthy   symbolism   Aids   rememberance   privilege  
  • 7.      They  all  tell  us  something.   Not  one  meaning,  many  meanings….  
  • 8. Me(ssage  by  Mademoiselle  Maurice     Exploring  the  use  of  ribbons  in  art.  The  placement  of  the  ribbon  defines  its  purpose.  Different  ribbons  signify  different   things.  
  • 9. Me#isage  is  a  street  project  by  French  ar(st  Mademoiselle  Maurice.  Dressing  ci(es  and  making  street  art  with  ribbons.  In   this  context  they  serve  as  a  decora(ve  contrast  to  the  grey   street  exterior.  
  • 10. Pencil  Drawing:  Jennah  Porter    Experimen(ng  with  lines.  Do  we  see  ribbons  or  lines?  It’s  a   maJer  of  percep(on.  
  • 11. Ink  drawing:  Jennah  Porter     Are  these  lines  or  bows?  Are  objects  defined  only  by  the  names   we  give  them?  “  A  rose  by  any  other  name  would  smell  as  sweet:”  Shakespeare.    
  • 12. Are  bows  more  significant  dependent  on  their  placement?  Do   they  change  the  meaning  of  an   object?  Does  their  form  change   their  own  meaning?  
  • 13. Experiment  1:  tying  bows  around  different  objects.  What  does  it  mean   now?  What  did  it  mean  before?  
  • 14. Is  this  s(ll  rubbish?  
  • 15. Is  this  a  present  or  a  piece  of  fruit?  
  • 16. Experiment  2:  Interrac(ng  with/communica(ng  through  the  bow  
  • 17. MOMA’s  ‘Talk  to  Me’  exhibi(on  currently  explores  the  way  objects  talk  to  us.    “Whether  openly  and  ac(vely  or  in  subtle,  subliminal  ways,  things  talk  to  us.  Tangible  and  intangible,  and  at  all  scales-­‐-­‐from  the  spoon  to  the  city,  the  government,  and  the  Web,  and  from  buildings  to  communi(es,  social  networks,  systems,  and  ar(ficial  worlds-­‐-­‐things  communicate.  They  do  not  all  speak  up:  some  use  text,  diagrams,  visual  interfaces,  or  even  scent  and  temperature:  others  just  keep  us  company  in  eloquent  silence.”    A  real  human  interface  at  MOMA  ‘TALK  TO  ME’  VIDEO:  hJp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJ6QmwTLgMc&feature=related      The  footage  shows  how  an  interface  can  be  given  human  communica(on  quali(es.  This  breaks  down  some  of  those  perceived  walls  regarding  communica(on  so  we  can  ‘talk’  to  objects  or  interfaces  more  readily.  In  this  case,  they’re  given  a  human  face.  
  • 18. Experiment  1:  PART  B  Placing  the  ribbon  around  different   parts  of  the  body  to  create   alternate  meanings  
  • 19. blindfold   status   heard   silence  words   feminine   strangula(on  
  • 20. How  do  objects  communicate  and   how  do  we  communicate  with   them?    
  • 21.   The  art  of  wearable  communica(on   :  Kate  Hartman     hJp://www.ted.com/talks/kate_hartman_the_art_of_wearable_c ommunica(on.html      
  • 22. The  art  of  wearable  communica(on  explained:    The  ar(st/educator/scien(st  discussed  devices  she  has  used  to  communicate  with  glaciers,  pot  plants  and  telepathically  with  others  around  her.    All  ideas  were  based  around  her  original  desire  to  communicate  with  other  people  on  the  train  without  actually  speaking.  She  wanted  them  to  ‘hear  her  thoughts’.  For  this  she  created  ‘the  mumbling  hat’  pictured  below.      She  created  a  device  which  enabled  her  to  communicate  with  her  pot  plant.  The  pot  plant  can  send  text  messages  to  update  its  owner  when  it  requires  water  as  a  result  of  regulatory  monitors  placed  in  the  poing  mix.    Lastly  she  discusses  how  she  created  a  device  to  enable  her  to  ‘interact  with  a  glacier’  called  a  glacier  embracing  suit.    As  part  of  one  of  her  experiments  she  also  roamed  through    New  York  city  dressed  as  a  wal.  She  felt  the  by  becoming    ‘wall-­‐like’  she  could  beJer  create  solu(ons  to  communicate    with  them.    The  basis  of  all  the  ar(st’s  work  surrounds  how    we  communicate  with  ourselves  and  the  world    around  us.  
  • 23. Everyday  objects  that  communicate   selfishness  Drugs  in  town!  Op(mism/pessimism   Sexual  availability  
  • 24.       Strange  Love:  Objectumists  hJp://documentaryheaven.com/ married-­‐to-­‐the-­‐eiffel-­‐tower/    
  • 25. Experiment  2:     Communica(ng  with  objects  Rocks  don’t  move  but  this  one  does.  What’s  it  saying?  
  • 26.  Experiment  3:  Conversa(ons  with  a  rock/interrac(ng   with  objects

  • 28.            2.  
  • 29. •  How  does  this  research  and   experimenta(on  relate  to  my  3   proposals?  -­‐  they  relate  back  to  the  idea  of  interac(vty  and  play   based  around  communica(ng  with  objects   -­‐  they  relate  to  the  idea  of  changing  the  form  of  an   object/allowing  it  to  communicate  different  ideas   -­‐  they  relate  back  to  the  idea  that  objects   communicate  with  us  everyday  and  that  we  can   create  device  that  enable  us  to  communicate  back  
  • 30. Concept  1:    -­‐Extended  video  installa(ons  based  around  the  no(on  of  play  and  user  interac(vity.  -­‐  The  exhibit  will  allow  users  to  view  videos  similar  to  those  sampled  and  to  alter  the  outcome  based  on  their  input.  E.g  rock  pain(ng  video    -­‐  Real  life  objects  will  be  present  and  users  will  be  able  to  alter  the  form  and  behaviour  of  the  object,  record  the  interac(on  and  play  it  back  for  viewing.  -­‐  The  end  result  will  be  a  series  of  varying  interac(ons  with  everyday  objects,  demonstra(ng  our  ability  to  communicate  with  them  in  a  non-­‐prescribed  way.  
  • 31. Concept  2:    -­‐  Extended  video  installa(on  of  ribbon  being   (ed  and  un(ed  projected  on  mul(ple  screens.  -­‐  Users  can  interract  with  display  by  altering  the   speed  of  the  process,  puing  it  the  projec(on  on  reverse,  changing  the  colour    of  the  ribbon  or   the  type  of  bow  (ed.   -­‐  This  concept  plays  with  the  idea  of  changing   the  form  of  an  object  to  create  an  en(rely  separate  thing.  E.g  bow  becomes  ribbon,  ribbon   becomes  bow.  
  • 32. Concept  3:  -­‐  This  concept  will  be  based  around  the  idea  of  altering  the  form  of  an  object  to  determine  what  it  communicates  to  the  viewer.  -­‐  Bows  will  be  distributed  on  mass  amongst  the  public  on  an  ordinary  day  in  Sydney  and  encouraged  to  wear  them  in  a  non-­‐tradi(onal  manner/to  aJempt  to  communicate  something  through  the  wearing  of  the  bow  -­‐  A  photographic  gallery  exhibit  will  follow  based  on  the  varying  interpreta(ons  regarding  the  significance  of  the  bows  and  the  different  ways  people  have  chosen  to  wear  and  interpret  them.
