    Shefali Mistry leads Michelada Think Tank event on artists of color

  • For decades, the Los Angeles–based artist Lita Albuquerque has blurred distinctions between Land art and Light and Space on increasingly grander scales, whether it be building installations surrounding the pyramids in Egypt or placing sculptures across Antarctica to mirror the formation of the stars. Her cosmic explorations continue with two new bodies of work that are currently being shown at Kohn Gallery in Hollywood, from January 9 through February 27, 2016, and at USC’s Fisher Museum of Art, from January 26 through April 10, 2016.

Christian Mounger: 2006 TLC Technology Grant Report


Report:

In May 2006 I received a Technology Grant to make three video learning objects. These videos supplement course work in Color and Design and Connections through Color and Design, a two-semester Foundation/Integrated Learning course.

The videos provide basic information on handling traditional graphic materials, and may be accessed by the students outside class time via YouTube. The three short videos present the following:

In addition two of the videos include a brief introduction to the history of pigments.

I began working on this project in May 2006 writing scripts, photographing imagery, and creating original digital graphics. I worked with Kathleen Forrest and Sarah Morton shooting all three videos over two different sessions. Their input and dedication were most valuable in completing the grant, and I estimate I devoted over150 hours to the project, including preparatory work, editing, and voice over recording.

Upon completion of the second video, I conducted a written survey of student responses. These responses were overwhelmingly positive. I look forward to using the videos during the first week of classes next fall and next spring.

The TLC provided a context to evaluate and refine my teaching skills, while making the videos helped me formalize routine introductory lessons. These three learning objects are short and succinct resources for students to use outside class. Over the summer months, I plan to consider which other demonstrations might be useful to video in the future.
