About︎


As a visual artist, Jaajr delves into the intricate connections between the self, time, and the continuous change of the universe. Through a practice-based approach that revolves around the exploration of materials and the art of making, she seeks to unravel the mysteries of existence and translate them into works that challenge the boundaries of traditional art forms.

By immersing themselves in the creative process, Jaajr's art seeks to bridge the gap between the tangible and the intangible, inviting viewers to contemplate the interconnectedness of all things and the fluid nature of the universe.

✹Discourse and  debate
14th December 2020
               

Previously from the mind maps and questions that I have been working on, I found it can help me to get a clear vision of my next step or the idea of connecting the 'dot'. It's something that I can use for my own reference - to organise my thoughts that have flashed in and out in my mind. But in this week session - Simon tried to challenge us to think about the questions around the audience and think about how to bring them closer to our subject.

At first, I didn't understand how to question like that - from the projects in my previous course or any other after that, I never have considered that aspect before. Yes - we, as a designer, should consider the clients or the audience requirement. But never before I thought about how to bring them closer by asking the question.

'This is interesting' I thought, yet I spent a lot of time to process this method. I know from the beginning this method can give my research more depth for sure. What should I ask? Is it the same as, like in English idiom - to put ourself into others shoes? How can I bring the audience closer to my art piece? 

As I have written about my subject before - the research I'm working on is the context around 'shiny object' which can be defined in a different meaning. It can be something new, never before seen. It implies luxury. It is outstanding, different from the surrounding space regardless of their reflective ability, etc.

Moreover, From the new mind map that I have done as I rethink about what exact quality of a shiny object that I'm interested in so I can expand more I idea about it. I felt stuck a bit as 'shiny object' is kind of flat for me. The quality I love about the shiny object is they provide visual attention to the audience. And I want to make something that can grab people's eyes. From visual attention, I, then, can expand more to the subject of other quality that can provide visual attention same as shininess like moving object, bright vivid colour, or object with sound as seen in the mind map below.




Now for the question around the audience - I'm thinking of bringing them closer to my final work by the idea of them seeing themself within the object I made. The idea of self-image is involved in this stage. The question I may need to ask might be

'within the relationship between human and jewellery, how can my work embody the idea of self-image through the concept of visual attention'






Also, in this exercise, we were challenged to think about the perspective of our future audiences - how would they feel towards our outcome? What are their experiences? and Why? This allows me to rethink about my aim of the project in the aspect of the audiences. Not only thinking about what do I want to provide but also what do I want them to receive?

Their experiences might be...
' I can't stop looking at this art piece, it is really hypnotic. Each bit resonate to each other - like a wave but it's not a wave. The colour, the effect of their reflective material make it grander'

' I'm wondering what is this piece used for? I've never seen the colour like this before. I don't think it has any function maybe it can be shown on a runway or art gallery? I'm wondering how it looks like on the real person? Would it be different from what it is on the mannequin?'

' I'm wondering what is the context of this art piece is all about? The colour and its reflective effect are fabulous! I can be either love it so much or completely hate it'

From these two exercises, I found myself standing at the far end of my project but looking back to it in through the angle of the audience. Questioning and Imagining of the final result allows me to explore my subject from outside of my own perception. I hope I can research deeper from the experience in these exercises :)
