    Are You Creating Barriers to Your Art?

    01/04/2019 Duração: 08min

    On this episode of the Modern Medium Podcast, we are exploring barriers: might artists inadvertently create these barriers to their art? And how does this affect its experience?BarriersBarriers can be anything: a blind person who can’t see the art, or someone with a learning disability who might not understand the art in the way that it was intended. But they can still experience art in other ways that you might not expect, and so in this way, art can be accessible to anybody. It’s just a matter of creating that space.On communicating Art is not always going to be clearly communicated across all platforms. It might offend. It might cause stress or tension. And that’s part of the learning process as both artist and viewer: each of our experiences are different, and so the ways in which we access art will naturally be different too. As artists, we can’t control how people will react, so a big thing is keeping your art true to yourself. Being true to yourself Trying to communicate what’s inside of

  • Making Art a Sensory Experience

    Making Art a Sensory Experience

    25/03/2019 Duração: 09min

    On this episode of the Modern Medium Podcast, we’re exploring our senses: while it’s common for art to have visual and aural components, we don’t normally think about art in terms of smell, taste, or touch. But art is supposed to imitate life, and within life, we experience these all at once. How then can we make art a sensory experience? It’s easy to be visual, as a lot of art already is. Visiting art galleries or museums is typically a visual experience, seeing the paintings or sculptures and experiencing them from a distance. But one thing that’s interesting about those spaces is that they’re usually silent. Why is there no sound? Why are we hearing people just shuffling around? Paris shares about a project she did, where she recorded audio snippets of her morning rituals, experiencing that routine through sound. We don’t normally think of audio outside of music, but you can easily tell a story through the things you hear on the street. When you touch something, you’re going to understand it

  • Incorporating Time into Art

    Incorporating Time into Art

    18/03/2019 Duração: 10min

    On this episode of the Modern Medium Podcast, we’re talking about a medium not often thought about in the art field: time. How can we incorporate this into art, and what might that look like? Time-based art Time-based art can contain anything. It can be oral or visual — whatever you can incorporate into a specific amount of time. Movies, for example, are time-based, as you experience it for an hour and a half or two hours. The influence of timeThe thing that Paris likes most about time is how it can be ritualistic. You can get time anywhere: over the course of a day or a year, or as in an art exhibition where two people live their daily lives for nine months physically attached to each other.On top of that, time brings to mind how things are going to change: some things are not necessarily always going to end the way they began. It’s easy to fall into our own ritual; we don’t believe time is going to change us, but 40 or 50 years later, we’re asking ourselves how we got here because this isn’t

    Welcome to the Modern Medium Podcast! We talk about the tools, strategies, tactics, and possibilities in modern medium design. In our first episode, we’re exploring ideas: how they form, how they change, and how we might incorporate those ideas into graphic design. The creative process and coming up with ideasWhen you’re stuck in a creative rut, it’s difficult to know where to begin with an idea. Even when you do have an idea, it’s easy to get caught up in what you think something is supposed to be or what it’s supposed to look like. So it’s an important part of the process to learn how to let go.Ideas can come from anywhere. You can think of anything as a base point and go from there with it. Think about what you knew before, think about what you know now, and think about how things have changed. This doesn’t have to go anywhere tangible; you can use this as a brainstorming exercise or mind map and take off from it.The Willamette RiverThe Willamette River was brought up in class and it was interesting f
