Project Review. Samantha Williams.

It’s about donning your ‘Artist Hat’ and having courage of conviction from beneath it, no matter how daft you might look. When LPAP approached me to do a project/talk/workshop in their space with only the guideline that they wanted students from Bournville College to feel a familiarity there, I knew I wanted to test out,…

Samantha Williams. Collective B Event.

I was admittedly more nervous about the two sessions that Collective B has devised, mostly because – as with any project like this – we were so dependant on participants taking part for the sessions to be a success. The first session ‘Building Dystopia’ was a little thin on the ground, with only 5 participants…

Rafal Zajkowski. Collective B Event.

I really enjoyed our event. We split our show for two sessions. In the morning at 10 o’clock we had Dystopia and after at 2 o’clock we had Utopia. Unfortunately for first session didn’t come too many people, however in my opinion we had fun anyway. Everything was organised perfectly. Samantha’s voice in the background gave…

Patryk Orkisz. Collective B Event.

The day of the event finally came. We met at 9 o’clock in the morning to set up the interactive art exhibition. The preparation of the space was easy as we worked hard at the last session to finish everything. The first event took place at 10 AM. Although we sent invitations to a lot…

Michelle Moore. Collective B Event.

Judgement day had arrived – it was finally time for our event. The morning began with putting up posters, moving furniture and generally preparing for the arrival of our participants. Mary and Jen turned up to represent Collective A and then the hordes of participants arrived – all 3 of them. Despite the disappointing turnout,…

Dimitris Tantales. Collective B Event.

Today was the day we would finally get our volunteers together to build our communities and then exhibit the finished art piece. We had split the two sessions into a morning session and an afternoon session. Sadly, we only had about five people turn up for the morning session to help build our dystopia. Nevertheless,…

Jasmine Chan. Collective B Event.

Yesterday was the finale to our project. I came into the gallery space with the two cameras and tripods borrowed from the Coventry university media loan shop and began to set them up so that we could film the people interacting with the space and things which we’ve given them to build. We also set…

Samantha Williams. Session 4b.

The final session before our event this Friday involved lots of preparation of the materials that the participants will be using to build our utopia and dystopia. Over the previous week I had designed and  printed nets of houses, buildings, trees and signs – so the majority of the session was spent cutting up over…

Rafal Zajkowski. Session 4b.

We went to Birmingham to see Collective A project yesterday. Unfortunately I didn’t see all show but anyway I enjoyed it. I really like their main concept for that project. In my opinion it’s been very interesting show. I like that smartphones were involved in this project. On our last session we were very busy….

Dimitris Tantales. Session 4b.

Today, me and my colleagues carried out some preparations to get ready for the event which will take place on Friday. Samantha had brought in numerous templates for both communities for us to cut out to prepare for the art piece. The cutting lasted nearly all day but we managed to go through all the…
