Collaborative Workshop Reflections- BIMA Visual Arts and Dance
The first thing we did was to pretend to make a hat in an assembly line fashion in small groups. Then, in two larger groups, we turned that process into a machine with our bodies being the moving parts inside. After, we transferred the 3D movements on to 2D paper by drawing the positions in motion. We practiced repetition by doing the exact brush stroke with ink inside the shapes. We then filled in and outlined more shapes with 3 different colors of paint.
Repetition was a similar theme for both Visual Arts and Dance. As a warm-up, we were challenged to do the exact same movement five times and also do five completely different moves. On paper, we practiced that with a clean brush and then doing the same stroke over again.
It was amazing to see the movements being drawn on the paper from a person in real life. Also, layering and deciding which movements were on top of the others (constant) created a completely unique product.
