09 Nov MACRO MICRO MINUTIAE
Field Trip Brief – Reflect and consider – Concepts, Contexts and Practice (PLACE)
Three little words
- Macro (large scale, overall)
- Micro (small scale)
- Minutiae (seemingly trivial things often overlooked)
Using one of the following words at each site record your senses/interact with a space at increasing intervals from your home or the Art School.
Task 1 – 1 meter
Task 2 – up to ½ mile
Task 3 – up to 1 mile
Recording these places can take any form (photographs, sound, drawing, performance etc.).
Here is my answer to this brief. It is a visual exercise that I do a lot during my travels. Training my senses to feel the space I am in. To absorb the sounds, smells, textures and colours to the point of sensory overstimulation.
It allows me to find wonder and the extraordinary things in the spaces around me.
