Name-it filter: blog of artists’/designers’ early work
posted by ella_minnow to media & arts (5 answers total)
I’m creating a site or blog profiling the very early work (preferably high school, if possible) of contemporary artists and designers, with short descriptions/commentary from them (whenever possible) on selected pieces. I don’t want to get into too many specifics of the project here, but in addition to being really fun to look at, I think a collection like this could be a great tool for conversation (I’m in the field of arts education, but I think this could generate interest beyond that) in thinking about the development of artistic voice or point of view, and how that happens. In most creatives’ young lives, there are experiences they have or things that they make that serve as turning points in figuring out something about themselves as artists, and I’d love for this to capture some element of that for each person profiled.
So, I have the basic idea, I have some contacts to help get this thing rolling, but first it needs a name! I’m totally stumped. Any ideas?
