Abstract (Summary)

My Master of Fine Arts (MFA) project consisted of two primary components. The first was a series of two-dimensional works created through layering and combining various techniques. Many of these were accompanied by discrete audio electronics installed behind or alongside the image. The second component is a set of custom drafting tables that allowed the audience to draw on a piece of paper and listen to the processed and effected sound of their mark-making in real time through headphones. Ideas of systems, structure, logic and perception were all concepts present in the creation of the work. My process largely consisted of figuring out how to make something that works various components together with some sense of self-defined structural logic in order to create a space for the viewer to insert themselves into and have an engaging experience.
