Hi Liz & other students at Writtle...

Hi RebeccaL,

I was viewing your piece Splash, which I like. I was wondering how else 
you could explore this work further, mainly because it seems to want to 
be moving in some way. I was wondering if you could make this work more 
dynamic yet keep the contradiction and stillness of the images...

It could be animated, or both - perhaps stop-motion or a net art work, 
or both or either, or something else...

There are various ways in moving this piece, but perhaps it is also 
important to remind yourself what the raw concept of the piece means to 
you. Whenever I make an artwork it may change quite a lot during the 
process making it, into something else, yet it can keep maintain its 
integrity and spirit as well and work out to be better as well.

Remember, this is your work - so take my suggestions with a pinch of 
salt but at least consider other options for exploration and possible 

I like these words "controlled experiment with various items being 
dropped from 30 inches." these words could be your guidelines and spirit 
of your process of maing the work.

I noticed also that you have these tags slected chance, experimental, 
performance, photography. These are also guidelines to keep (if you 
wish), which act as guidance and structure or conceptual palette when 
venturing the project further :-)

Here are some examples - they may not be directly relating to your 
concept, but I think the methods themselves are interesting and they may 
help in some way...

I'll start with an excellent work by Jess Loseby:

Take note of the sound...
