This is the performance made by 3rd A, B and CD on November 25th, International Day against Gender Violence.
Thanks specially to Marta de Gonzalo, my friend and Arts Department Head.
Jorge based on several texts as The Chatcher in the rye by J.D Salinger and Keep on keeping on by Michael Sage. What he wanted to represent above all was perseverance and the idea of sticking to the things you like and enjoy doing in order to accomplish your goals; success based on honest intentions, humbleness and effort.
Certainly it is a project very thought and planned. Look at his sketches as well:
Ana Venteo got inspiration from one poem by Mario Benedetti and an anonymus sentence. Mario Benedetti’s is in the picture:
“Nos enseñaron desde niños cómo
se forma un cuerpo sus funciones sus sitios
pero nunca supimos
de qué estaba hecha el alma”.
The second one was also related with the soul: ” The sun sees your body, the moon sees your soul.” That’s why she painted a night landscape, because for her, at night, you are more “pure” and sincere with yourself and everything.
She chose this topic because it is a mistery but although not having a scientific explication, we know that there’s something in ourselves. That’s why she wanted to represent a soul. A soul in peace.
She had a lot of difficulties: how to represent a soul, or how to seem depth and with the aereal perspective… But fake it till you make it!
Guillermo Guzmán’s project is very complex because he talks us about “Lazyness” for knowing people and no judge them for the first gist, limits of sexuality and gender.
He shows his images in a spectrum, one close to the other, like an evolution.
After going to Roni Horn’s exhibition we were working in a personal project: free technic to show us something about you, your thoughts, your worries… to move us.
The results have been very varied and interesting. Here there are some examples of them:
Candela wanted to connect teenagers with technology and school. She took four photos where you can see a mountain of books and at the top a technological device. This means that teenagers use more technology than books for searching things that they don´t know. She has also put them in the order that they were invented.
Claudia’s project is an installation made for children or young people mostly. The mirrors represent the future in a subjective way, because it let them imagine what would they want to be, without being scared of what people can think about it, Some people work at something they don’t like, because they don’t have other option, but when you are studying you have to do what you want, for your dreams can become true.
Pelayo’s project consist in represent his hobbies with iconic symbols: a balloon wich shows that he loves chatting and giving his opinion, a painting palette wich tells that he loves painting. And finally a bass clef which represents his love for music and playng instruments. He decided to use fosforescent painting to show the strength of his personality .
Raquel has done a wave because she wanted to show how important is Vigo for her and I thought that the sea was the best way. The wave is made up of pictures of all her life representing when she was little and she lived there, but with the pasage of time she is further from there. The base of the wave represents her childhood, the foam the future and the end the death.
With Color in motion by Claudia Cortés we can go deeper in the symbology of colour and its importance for communication. In its three doors you can see:
– the stars: general characteristics of each colour
– the movies: animations about symbology of colour
– the lab: review, do a kaleidoscope or direct a scene
In The Lab choose your favourite colour and direct your scene based on the word which appears on your selection. When you have finished capture the screen or print it with Cute PDF and send me by email.
Carnovsky is a duo of Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla. Their design project RGB lies in wallpapers, art pieces, installations, scarves… where overlap different images in cyan, magenta and yellow (basic pigment colours). What happen if you see them with different coloured lights or special glasses?
Coloured lights make different images appear based on the color used. According to the artists, RGB is a work about the exploration of the “surface’s deepness.” In each image three layers live together, three worlds that could belong to a specific animal kingdom or to an anatomical part, but at the same time connect to a different psychological or emotional status.
