It’s done! It’s finally over! The show is actually going to be up for another week, but the reception is finished and all I have to do now is take it down. Which is a somewhat daunting thought but I’ll worry about it in a week. I apologize for the picture quality; I really needed a better camera and a tripod for such low light shots.
I’ve been testing and retesting and re-retesting, trying to make sure that my ideas for the METHOD of presenting my thesis show actually work–but not really doing much for the actual design of it–mainly because I’ve had to accept limitations of technology and that it will be necessary to work around them. I got stuck. I’ve been kicking at the ‘block’ for a while now, but I think it might be beginning to budge. I started compiling the slides for the projection, experimenting with the appearance and disappearance of elements on each ‘panel’.
To view this properly you need to have Adobe Reader installed; if you do, then when you open the file, click ‘yes’ to the window that pops up, and let the slides run. Be aware that they are set to loop.

A stereotype is an image, often incorrect, that is sustained without change. Immersion into a sea of faces unlike your own requires a shift in perspective, a strain to understand the new ‘normal.’ Contradictions in what you see and experience begin to reconcile when you change your point of view to comprehend the situation. Concepts like community and hospitality take shape into an unexpectedly living form that causes changes in yourself and how you affect the world around you.
….I don’t like it as much now. It’s clunkier….
“Every now and then a man’s mind is stretched by a new idea or sensation, and never shrinks back to its former dimensions.” –Oliver Wendell Homes Sr
A stereotype is an image perpetuated without change. Immersion into a sea of faces unlike your own necessitates a perspective shift – a strain to understand the new ‘normal.’ Incongruencies in what is observed and experienced begin to resolve into a situation that requires a changed point of view to comprehend. Concepts like community and hospitality take shape into an unexpected living form that effects change in yourself and your sphere of influence.
Plainsong is a single, unaccompanied melodic line. The vocalists sing in unison, none diverging from the shared idea. An antiphon is a song in which the two independent choirs interact by singing alternate musical phrases. If one choir asks a question, the other will answer. Eventually the voices blend into harmony. A canon is a composition in which a series of repetitions develop into a single melody. But the individual voices may interpret the melody in contrasting ways: it might be inverted, or in reverse, or in a different pitch. The combination results in a rich and dense swirl of sound.
