This was recorded at approximately 3pm, walking from Hunt Library back to my apartment in Oakland.
I viewed both of these paintings in the Carnegie Museum of Art. I didn't take photos of them while I was there because usually American art museums don't want you to do this. Please note that Wall's painting is roughly the size of a typical bathroom mirror and Kline's is roughly the size of the opening for a large double-door closet.
Marcel Duchamp was born into a family of artists. Starting his career by drawing cartoons for Paris periodicals, he ultimately painted in multiple different styles, most notably including Cubism, Surrealism, and Dada. The painting that gained him the most notoriety, at first rejected or unnoticed in Paris galleries, is "Nude Descending a Staircase No. 2." It was a hit in New York City. He continued to work with nudes and sexual themes--something that was traditionally not acceptable within Cubism. After this, he moved to mechanical and geometric forms, leading to the first Ready-Made, a form of art in which an artist chooses a normal object that becomes art simply because the artist has chosen and displayed it. After the start of WWI, Duchamp moved to the United States. He would continue to produce art as a member of the avante-garde both in New York and Paris, throughout the rest of his life. He was also an avid chess player. Duchamp was only minimally influential--predominantly among his close friends--until the 1950s/1960s. After an exhibition of his work at each of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and MOMA in NYC, his reach broadened. He influenced such artists as Andy Warhol, and the development of Pop art.
Once I figured out how best to proceed with the feeling of depth, I had the most trouble doing small shapes or rounded features.
Our goal in this assignment was to experiment with varying levels of chance, indeterminacy, and entropy in creating a composition mixing four songs. We did this by changing our methods for picking the songs, and also by changing the method for mixing. This resulted in very interesting compositions that did reflect our design choices. We hope you enjoy what we have created!
This project aims to suggest a prototype design for a medical interface that will provide patient information to consulting physicians in a more efficient manner than surveys or questionnaires in order to better direct the patient-doctor discussions in the limited amount of time available during a short appointment.
