Final Critique at 319 Scholes
Our final crit took place at 319 Scholes with guest critiques Nancy Nowacek and Pejk Malinovski.
The feedback that I got was encouraging. Both critics questioned my attachment to me being the actress in the project. Did it have to be me? And if it did, would I be committed to taking acting classes or even working with a director. As I had expected, my technology needs to improve. I used a 5D and a zoom recorder and the quality was not so great. The critics seemed very excitedd to follow my work. Pjek also suggested that maybe, after epode passed I could actually let people know they wet win on the joke. This could, in turn, become an educational performance, that lets people be ion it with me. I think part of the reason why he suggested this had to odo with the fact that he made me consider the ethics of the project. I thought about it and I believe that as long as I am aware of the fax that the project might be unethical but I am doing it in order to explore the absurdity of nothing similar existing for men.
My concept description, as was stated before, is to explore the catcalling phenomenon as a strictly woman experience. Is there such a thing as women catcalling men? And if there is, what does that mean? In a city like New York, where women feel empowered and have career opportunities and everything, why is it that we suddenly feel like the catcalling delineates our personal space. throughout the exploration of me at calling other men, I have come to the conclusion that the experience is very rarely reversed.
For the future, I am exploring making a necklace go pro or even buying one of those pens or those glasses that have cameras on them. I will also try to take the performing identities class, epxlre the possibility yf building the live cam cart with a raspberry pie and walk around with roopa and go pros.
I learned a lot of things in this project. Mainly, I learned to just let go and relax and start getting shit down before I have too much time to think about it. i learned that all project made need to have a context and a place for them within the history of the theme of the project. I will continue future iterations of the project and keep reporting progress on this blog.
