We have been set a 1 week project to produce a site specific piece of work. The bulk of the brief is as follows:
Concept: How do we define a site? This might be physical - particular architectural spaces or landscapes in both the natural and man-made environment: indoors or outdoors, academic, public or social space. Other aspects of sites are the bodies, communities and personalities that inhabit them. Sites may be obscure or ephemeral - eg. a pocket, a hidden corner, a puddle. Equally the 'site' might be virtual, electronic, where the local is connected to the global. Your work might be generated out of the site itself, or could be a 'sited' development of a previous theme in your work, or might be entirely new. Media and methods are open but should be appropriate to the work and situation.

Today I began developing a personal project. The project will be a continuation of my earlier work Quartertone. However, rather than developing a software mirror, I want to begin experimenting with motion detection and interactive art.

Today I went to the Media Lab open day here at MMU. The course sounds really impressive and, judging by the work the students have produced, this could be a natural progression for me from my current course. Media Lab is divided into four pathways: Photography, Filmmaking, Media Arts and Film & Media Studies.

Last week I met with Andrea Zapp, who is the programme leader for Media Lab. The upshot of this was being offered the opportunity to join a group project to create a permanent kinetic sculpture for the reception area of the new building here at MMU. The sculpture will take the form of a glockenspiel clock (examples below), but rather than being time based, the sculpture will be fed by data which is gathered from different areas of the building.
