Tutorial with Richard Launder

Associate Professor at Subject Area Ceramics at the Dept of Specialised Art, Bergen National Academy of the Arts.

Showed three dresses, porcelain one and the two bronze ones and powerpoint of clay models, wax landscape and large scale drawings.

People to look at:
Marek Cecula - inspirational portfolio of an artist and designer (juggling being both).
Nicola Constantino - human skin bags
Barnaby Barford - porcelain figures, animation

Its important the translation from the dream. Work on the retainability of the raw material. Try speaking the dream again, taking it from the original sound recording, what happens - are the emotions different? Collect many versions of the same dream as possible. What about recording a daily diary as well to correspond to the dream diary. Within this inaccessibility could be something key/important.

All these methods of capture / themes in the work are filters. You testing different systems. Rule making. Look at Brian Eno - Oblique Strategies (here is a link to get them!)

For example - I could record, instead of the physical things happening in the dream, only the emotional sense for five days and then make something based on this instead of representational objects.

Make different inventories of objects.

With the wax pieces, could try melting with hot air - invisible source and then reverse, play with the order of the video. Reversal, missing sections, fuzzy.
