Title: Art recording art: Creating an interactive visual document of personal experience
Author: Rubin, Ben
Abstract: This document was submitted to fulfill the thesis requirement for the Master of Fine Arts (MFA) at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). The following thesis introduction includes a Quick Response Code (QR) and a Universal Resource Locator (URL), both of which point the reader to a complex, interactive website housing an online version of the thesis and artwork. This thesis explores how the notetaking process can shape personal language as it bridges the contexts of education and art. The author appropriates the medium of notetaking and adapts it for the world of fine art. The project documents the various paths of all thirty graduating masters students from the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences (CIAS) who shared the Bevier Gallery for their thesis show in 2011. Through a combination of traditional and digital interactive media, the work reveals the experiential nature of notetaking, both in terms of the notetaker and the audience. The notes themselves are visual maps of conversations between the notetaker and his peers, taken in real-time and synchronized with accompanying audio and video recordings. Within this thesis, physical and web experiences blend together and become interdependent. The full library of these multimedia documents is shared in an online space and referenced throughout the online version of the thesis.
