The video- I have received almost all of the video recording equipment. The three things I know I’d like to have included in the video are-
1. The sculpture making process from start to finish
2. Documentation of all the art making workshops and culminating events
3. Short interviews with participants about their memories of locomotives, changing transportation and their reactions to this sculpture making project
Should the outside of the sculpture look like a locomotive? How can we do that and incorporate the truck and trailer?
What colors should we paint the Locomotive Sculpture?
How should the inside of the locomotive look? Should the inside be a cozy space for two people or should it be able to seat/hold more for our social events?
What else should we make sure to include in the video portion of this project?
Workshops- I will be sending out a list of possible art workshop ideas to my collaborative partner locations in the next week. The art making workshops will range in skill level and vary in material. We want to include as many people as want to particpate. The first workshop is scheduled for July 6th and the last workshop is scheduled for July 28th. These workshops will help produce some of the building materials and artistic elements for the sculpture. Workshops can range from audio elements to poems written on the inside or outside walls to designing/painting colorful steel supports that I will weld into the main trailer structure of the Locomotive Sculpture. If you have an idea for the workshop let your Locomotive Sculpture coordinator know and have them pass the ideas onto me. I want these workshops to be fun and use materials I can include in the larger sculpture. This sketch shows some possible workshop ideas. We can be flexible with how the sculpture is created. The workshops will partly determine how the final sculpture is designed and built.
