On Tuesday, post the following to our class blog:
1. A seven-week schedule, detailing what you need to accomplish in each week in order to get your JAPR work together (if you're making work for the BFA show, tailor it to the weeks you have left). I'd recommend, in your schedule, planning it out so that you're done with the work by the end of week 6, so that you have time to install it in a relaxed way (or, if you start to run behind schedule, then you have a week's wiggle room built in). A sample schedule for someone creating a doumentary photo essay might look like:
Contact all photo subjects and schedule shooting for the next week
First round of shooting
Printing smaller format prints
Schedule any follow-up shooting necessary
Printing first 3 large-format prints
Printing second 3 large format prints
Feel free to go into more detail than that. Just give an honest appraisal of what you need to do by when, and we'll check in on that on a weekly basis, to make sure you're staying on track. Of course, there's room for things to change as you dig deeper into your process, but it's good to have a "Plan A" before you start falling back on Plans C thru X.
2. Make a blog post, either on the class blog or your own blog (depending on your personal preference), about the show & reception this Thursday night. Have at least two paragraphs. It could be about a specific piece of work, it could be about something from the talk, pertaining to the alums' experience of making art after graduation. The subject (the Almuni Show) is set, but the approach is open.
Evening’s Yondemasu Yo, Azazel-San!
