Project based on Data consumption

One aspect of data consumption I find interesting is how you can observe many different numbers of data but it all accumulates to one answer. The data can lie too, what appears to be a bunch of different answers it really amounts to one answer, it can show more than what you actually have. My idea for a piece would be a series of pieces that appear different at first glance, but once all are observed up closer it becomes clear that they are all apart of one large piece.

Artists as Innovators

On October 10th, 2018 I attended the artist showcase “Artists as Innovators” on the Alfred University campus in theĀ Fosdick-Nelson Gallery. The piece that stood out to me the most was the Untitled Toothpick piece by Tara Donovan. As you can see, its a cube made out of toothpicks. The description states that all the toothpicks are only using gravity and friction to stay together, meaning that the toothpicks on the floor at the base of the piece fell off naturally, as all of them can. My first impression was how impressive it was that all the toothpicks emulated a cube so perfectly, and the lighting helped further this with the different sides all having a different exposure to said light. Upon further inspection, I started to really think about what I was looking at, it was just a bunch of toothpicks.

What does the medium say about the piece itself? It made me think about how common toothpicks are and how by utilizing physics allowed for an extraordinary piece to be created, perhaps that is a message about art itself. That is what art is, isn’t it? Taking simple objects and creating something new and interesting with it. Maybe it was not the original intent of the piece, but from my perspective it seems like this piece shows that with some creativity, simple objects can create an incredible work of art.
