Firstly showing the sunset/sunrises that we had been asked to make and then discussing them. It was interesting to see all the different ways of showing the same thing. We then talked about interpretation; how in art we show what we see, the interpretation being between looking and the movement of our brush or pen. We then looked at a long list of artists who use weather to create instillations, either in manipulations or the weather or in the suggestion of the weather. These instillations perfectly show how this from of work is made as an experience, to give something to all of the senses. Instead of simply giving the audience something to look at.
Task: Draw plans for our own instillation, to be presented next week.
