Exercise 6 - Series

ויאמר אלוהים, תדשא הארץ דשא עשב מזריע זרע, עץ פרי עושה פרי למינו, אשר זרעו-בו על-הארץ; ויהי-כן. יב ותוצא הארץ דשא עשב מזריע זרע, למינהו, ועץ עושה-פרי אשר זרעו-בו, למינהו; וירא אלוהים, כי-טוב. יג ויהי-ערב ויהי-בוקר, יום שלישי.

On the second part of the third day of creation God brings forth the grass out of the land.

Mother Teresa once said:

“See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...we need silence to be able to touch souls.”

" We need silence to be able to touch souls" - This is true for design and art as it is for spiritual work. No big surprise here since Art is spiritual work...

  • Create a series of five black, white, and gray compositions describing the process of sprouting, being born, budding, etc.

  • Every one of of the five panels should be exactly 20*60 cm.

  • You may use any technique for this project.

  1. The final series is the focus of this exercise. See the images attached - they are examples of projects done as series in a different exercise. Create the sketches for the project in this context.
  2. How do the five panels become more than the sum of their parts?
  3. How are they displayed on the wall?
  4. What is the relation between them?
  5. What stays the same, what changes?
  6. Make a test for the technique you are using.
Good Luck!!!
