CONCEPT: Consider the title “My Place, My Space” as a stimulus to create experimental works and a resolved a mixed media representational artpiece. You are challenged to consider that you are who you are because of where you are, where you have been and where you are going. Your focus can investigate physical space/place such as your bedroom or an emotional state representing your headspace. We all exist physically and emotionally and occupy many physical places during our daily lives and experience changing emotional states throughout each day. This unit urges you to capture a snap shot of this existence and communicate visually your chosen focus.
The context can be thought of as a lens that you view your focus through Personal - relating to a specific person rather than anyone else - their life, their opinion Sociocultural - relating to or involving cultural and social factors Society -The totality of social relationships among humans. A group of humans broadly distinguished from other groups by mutual interests, participation in characteristic relationships, shared institutions, and a common culture. Culture - The totality of socially transmitted behaviour patterns, arts, beliefs, institutions, and all other products of human work and thought. These patterns, traits, and products considered as the expression of a particular period, class, community, or population: Australian Teen culture; Japanese culture; the culture of poverty. The predominating attitudes and behaviour that characterize the functioning of a group or organization. Geographical – place on Earth; your physical environment Historical - existing, happening, or relating to the past. Spiritual - relating to the soul or spirit, usually in contrast to material things; relating to religious or sacred things rather than worldly things. Scientific/Technical - the study, development, and application of devices, machines, and techniques for manufacturing and productive processes Psychological - relating to the mind or mental processes; the characteristic temperament and associated behaviour of a person or group, or that exhibited by those engaged in an activity
A focus is a concentrated effort or attention on a particular thing, an area of concern, or investigation.

A body of works is a collection of investigative artpieces leading to a single or “major” work/s. The body of work shows your progress through the inquiry learning model (researching, developing, resolving, reflecting), as you integrates the components of the course (concept, focus, context, media area(s) and visual language and expression). You should be basing your artist practice on the Inquiry Learning Model
ASSESSMENT At the completion of this 10 week unit you are to have submitted the following items: 1.Your Visual Diary showing research and process work related to the concept, this should include the following teacher directed activities – artist research, magazine collages converted to line drawings, art time sequence, 24 hour photo montage and packaging collage with portrait overlay. (These are explained over page) 2.A Power Point Presentation with scanned pages of your visual diary that reflect the artist journey, photographs of exploration works and any extra notes that demonstrate working through the four stages of the Inquiry Learning Model-(Research, Develop, Resolve and Reflect) 3.A single resolved representational artpiece on board demonstrating your investigation of the concept “My Place, My Space”, this piece must use mixed media on supplied board 46cm x 61cm. (Representational - A realistic depiction of somebody or something with recognisable objects)
Research React to a variety of stimuli by identifying, recognising, generating, recording, imagining, compiling,investigating, searching, exploring, discovering, experimenting, inventing, observing, gathering and collecting…. Identify and recognise artists who have created art which utilises the mediums or style you wish to use. Also find artists that have a similar concept (Focus) to the one you intend to pursue for this unit. Stick examples of their works in your visual diary (or PPt) and find artist statements or critiques about their work. Some artists who have built interesting bodies of work related to My Place, My Space include: MC Escher, Willem De Kooning, Kristin Tennyson, Candy Jernigan, Zang Xiaogang, Davida Allen, Frida Kahlo, Brett Whiteley, Francis Bacon, Arone Meeks, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Velazquez, James, Gleeson, Egon Schiele, Orlan, Andy Warhol, Anneke Silver, Cindy Sherman, Tracey Moffat, Jean Michel Basquiat, Julie Rrap, Madonna Staunton, John Dahlsen. Observe and Investigate and Record: Use magazines to create 2 collage images, one surreal and the other in realistic proportion. The composition must have a foreground, middle ground and background. Recreate your collages into line drawings, photocopy several times and experiment colouring or patterning your drawings. One piece show thermal perspective– warm colours to the front and cool to the back. Discover and Record in your visual diary the way changing of historical context has altered the way artists represent landscapes in their work. Choose 5 points along a chronological continuum find an image and then record a typical representation from that era by sticking the images in your diary – label all images.(this is related to your appraising task) Inventing – Use a brainstorming concept map to invent your focus, create a list of possible images that convey your concept, from this sketch and plan possible compositions. Experimenting - create some experimental works from your brainstorming and inventing – try using unconventional medium such as wax (encaustics) and fabric to produce texture on some of your trial works.
Develop Generate solutions to visual art problems by: organising, analysing, synthesising, interpreting, judging, justifying, evaluating, visualising, extrapolating, imagining, estimating, approximating, comparing/contrasting and summarising/condensing… Present, arrange or display Collect over a 24 hour period a series of photographs on places you find yourself in a typical day, arrange the images in order of your day - crop them and stylize them in Photoshop, create an A4 collage. Select and Evaluate also over a 24 hour period collect abandoned packaging of things you have consumed Collage these to create a background surface, then transfer an image of your own face over this surface. Translate, Compose and Apply the elements from your experimental works to complete the DESIGN BRIEF sheet attached to this tasksheet. Define exactly what your own personal focus in response to the concept of “My Place, My Space' will be - this will be part of your artist statement. Synthesise all you have learnt to complete a final resolved work(s) that reflect your personal focus to the concept. Your experimental works should utilise a diverse range of materials, technologies, techniques and processes. It should demonstrate an informed and evolving personal aesthetic.
Resolve communicate individual ideas as visual, written or spoken responses by : translating, selecting, composing, applying presenting/displaying, explaining, expounding, justifying, evaluating, interrelating, synthesising... Selecting – Select relevant pages within your visual diary and Experiment works that signpost your journey and demonstrate your stages of working. Translating – Scan and photograph these selected works. Explain/Justify – Add written explanations to accompany your images, also describe your thinking, justifying the decision and visual choices you have made. Presenting/displaying – Create a Power Point Presentation to support your body of work, this should be a clear, concise and aesthetic display of your journey and end result
Reflect Thoughtfully consider information and ideas, media techniques, reflecting, revising, expressing, re-constructing, progressing, exploring, alternating. Reflect on how successfully your experimental or resolved works respond to the concept of “My Place, My Space” by filling out the ART REFLECTION AND EVALUATION page at the end of this tasksheet. Share and Express with your teacher or class some of the significant signposts or moments you have taken so far whilst studying this concept. Read over the criteria for grading both your folio and final artpiece, express your opinion on how successful you were at fulfilling these criteria.
Summary Research and Developing Activities 1 Use magazines to create 2 collage images, one surreal and the other in realistic proportion. The composition must have a foreground, middle ground and background. Recreate your collages into line drawings, photocopy several times and experiment colouring or patterning your drawings. One piece show thermal perspective–warm colours to the front and cool to the back. 2 Discover and Record in your visual diary the way changing of historical context has altered the way artists represent landscapes in their work.

Van Gogh's Room at Arles, 1888 Oil on Canvas 57 cm x 74 cm Van Gogh for whom colour was the chief symbol of expression, was born in Holland. Van Gogh's finest works were produced in less than three years in a technique that grew more and more impassioned in brushstroke, in symbolic and intense colour, in surface tension, and in the movement and vibration of form and line. Vincent van Gogh( )

Escher played with architecture, perspective and impossible spaces. His art continues to amaze and wonder millions of people all over the world. In his work we recognize his keen observation of the world around us and the expressions of his own fantasies. M.C. Escher shows us that reality is wondrous, comprehensible and fascinating.
Jean Michel Basquiat "The only thing the market liked better than a hot young artist was a dead hot young artist, and it got one in Jean-Michel Basquiat, whose working life of about nine years was truncated by a heroin overdose at the age of twenty-seven.” quote from Robert Hughes from “American Vision “ Jean-Michel Basquiat originally a graffiti art with the tag SAMO (“same old shit”), move on to canvas works and gallery exhibition. Basquiat came to personify the art scene of the 80's, with its merging of youth culture, money, hype, excess, and self-destruction Untitled acrylic and mixed media on canvas by Jean-Michel Basquiat, 1984
Madonna Staunton contemporary Australian Artist born NSW 1938 Staunton is primarily a collage artist. She began to establish a reputation in this medium during the 1970s (and was represented in the Third Biennale of Sydney in 1979). The components of her two- and three-dimensional assemblages are usually drawn from old, faded and battered discards that are carefully put together in new ways and given another life. A play between randomness and precision animates virtually all Madonna Staunton's assemblage work. Madonna Staunton, Key (2002) cabriole chair leg, text and piano keys.
