Evocative Objects Writing Assignment

WRITING ASSIGNMENT:  DUE NOV. 4

In the style of the evocative object essays and perhaps in conjunction with the readings to date, place the work you make in context.

The essay should be a minimum of 750 words.  Your writing will be evaluated on the organization and clarity of thought. 

You may choose to focus on one object or a body of work.  The essay should address:
- your motivation, or idea
- how the piece (or pieces) was e(were) executed, and what those methods may convey
- sources of influence or inspiration – this could include other mediums, movies, magazines, popular culture, your own history, cultural understanding, beliefs
- how your work may convey elements of your personal experience to the user/viewer

- it may be useful to consider the objects you choose to surround yourself with – anything from clothing, writing utensils, home furnishings, collections contribute to your aesthetic sensibility and reflect your time/place/cultural history.  These reflections may be included in the essay.
