MA Project Proposal V3

1. Working Title:

If we are not as creative as possible we will turn into robots

2. Aims and Objectives:

  • to explore nature and technology in our society
  • to visually look at the different relationships between nature and human created objects
  • explore society in how it is becoming robotic in its thoughts
  • to question our surroundings with abstract elements to gain deeper meaning
  • question our feelings towards human suffering, rather than being robotic
  • guilt
  • objective to be a society of creatives, which is definitely needed to create a place where we can all feel more human

3. Context (Including Historical, Contemporary and Theoretical Contexts):

  • I will be researching perception: how the individual perceives an object or space to be physically. This would then relate to how we view ownership over spaces, and how we create boundaries or barriers. I will be looking into how the illusions of physical spaces or visual perception is viewed in painting. This has been explored within the 20th century with artists such as Brigit Riley and Doors of perception
  • My practice will be very collective of everyday scenes or surrounding areas. This will then be captured through photographs / drawings / videos out in surrounding neighbourhood or where I can capture this within my everyday surroundings. This will then be altered  by either painting or creating videos, to play around with association to spaces. This will relate to more of a contemporary context, with film and photography references. My research will relate to the mid 20th century to today.
