( MAKING OF… )
Every year, in the last week of school, the School of Visual Art & Design celebrates the best work of our 200+ majors.
SHOW, represents thousands of hours of work from four disciplines: Film, Graphic Design, Animation, and Fine Art. It’s a celebration of our students achievements, but more than that, it’s an open invitation for Christian artists to transform our world through the arts. This is the best of 2014.
Each second of the finished SHOW represents hours of work. A design that’s on screen for 2 seconds, may have taken 20 hours to conceptualize and implement — a 1:36000 time ratio. And a 2-minute animated short? It easily took 2,000 hours to complete.
Why we do it
That thought, effort, and time may not be seen but it is definitely felt — the struggle in the concept phase, the writing, the extra time with production design, working with the actors, the extra pass on the animation, the three concepts that didn’t get made — all of it ends up on the screen.A 2-minute animated short? It easily took 2,000 hours to complete.
Art is meant to be viewed; it’s meant to start a conversation. That’s why we want students to see their work in context that’s outside of the classroom; to see it with an audience.
John Baldessari, an 83-year-old American conceptual artist, famously burned all of his art work mid-career. Everything he’d made for the previous 20 years was gone in minutes! It can feel a little bit like that after SHOW. A huge amount of work gone in a second.It’s not the work that’s important, it’s the experience and knowledge that’s been earned.
Like Baldessari, burning decades of work into our collective memory, SHOW embodies something great. It’s not the work that’s important, it’s the experience and knowledge that’s been earned. And it’s a philosophy we’ve build into our school — learning how to take your knowledge into the future and make something even more incredible.
