Welcome to one and all!
Develop a series of three works that are all related in concept and/or form. I would like you to articulate the relevance of this project for yourself and to your peers. Be able to express the source of your ideas and give us insight as to how the project developed and how your presentation to the class came to be. Please be thoughtful, original, and ambitious. As always please allow the class to be an active participant in you process helping to problem solve and work through ideas. Please let me know how I can assist you, especially if you are working beyond your scope of technical or physical ability which I will not discourage. Due date: TBD
