This morning in my in-box was an email from Photoshelter. It had a link to a projects at home idea document, within that document a link to John Baldessari’s tasks he set for his own students. I am really like Baldessari’s you can download it from SFMOMA’s site the Photoshelter one was good too, access it here.
Here’s a quick a taster of Baldessari’s:-
“Using photography, prove a point as in a science fair diorama, display, tableau, such as: ‘How quickly does bread mold under certain conditions?’, ‘Is plant growth hampered by use of conditioned water?’, ‘What is the effect of colored lights on plants?’” He goes on to suggest a few more ideas, but you get the picture: use your camera to conduct a “scientific” inquiry into something that makes you curious.
