During the critiques, the group with Pedro had an interesting discussion about the possibility of reformulating the IVP#1 after feedback and comments were received…this lead to an interesting point: whether it be one week, two weeks, one month, two months, or at the very end of the semester – if we choose to rework a project, disregarding the length of time thereafter, we will be a different person holding a slightly different perspective given to everything we learn and observe day to day. With this is mind, through my readings I thought the below quote would be appropriate since through reworking a project, or simply in the creation and completion of a new project we are reworking ourselves – (I hope this is the right place to post haha)
“Today, each artist must undertake to invent himself, a lifelong act of creation that constitutes the essential content of the artist’s work. The meaning of art in our time flows from this function of self-creation. Art is the laboratory for making new men.”
Harold Rosenberg (1906-1978), American art critic, author. Discovering the Present, part 4, chapter 24, 1973.
