Transformation is a powerful tool to express deep inner emotions, provoke thought and experiment with what you know about yourself. Taking time to delve into another form, take on a different persona can create interesting art whether it be photographic, installation, costume or performance. It is something that is so personal people will be able to take it down a route of their choosing whether it be comedic and playful or detailed and emotional.
Over four weeks you will be taken through a variety of challenges and guided experiments to encourage the generation of work. You will be encouraged to work on your piece in the days between classes. Using other class mates for feedback and encouragement it will be an individual journey with no restriction of artistic practice. The forth and final session will be an evening of an open showing where you can display your work in progress, give a talk or create an installation of your transformation.
