SPECIAL SESSION

February 18, 2018

This field trip inspires me a lot about telling stories. From the warm up activities, I learned different perspective to observe an object. It reminds me the reading regarding point of view, such as first person, second person, third person. From various angles, I can see different things. When I was doing the 4 cardinal directions, I found that it’s important to let the audience know the setting, using this way to clarify my position is interesting and helpful. I thought it would be hard to talk to strangers, I did not know how to start the conversation at first. I started to draw them and using Wendy’s way to talk to them. I found that they are nice and proud of their stories. They are happy to share their identities, their jobs and ask me the similar questions, such as where I came from. The process is like a way to exchange information, which is communication. I think if I only ask their question and never answer any their questions, it would be turning to be a one-side outputting channel, not a communication. I was not confident to draw at the first place, even though I took drawing classes in Berkeley City College before I transfer to CCA. During the gallery time, I was afraid to show my sketches to my peers, since theirs are much better than mine. But I heard Kate said no judgement, I felt released at that time. I think it’s easier to draw when I am relaxed. Through the exercise “Blind Contour”, I found that I always want to go back to the starting point because I am not sure whether I make it right or not. That’s why my sketches always have double faces or  lines to illustrate the same part of an object.
