Project Description

For our project assignment, we’re going to stick with the Sponging stage described in the class videos. After you’ve watched the videos:

  • Take a few days to let your mind wander.
  • Take time to notice any paths your curiosity might be trying to lead you.
  • Notice the people you interact with, the world around you, and the experiences you have each day.
  • Is there something that keeps popping up in your life? Something you keep noticing over and over?
  • Follow any questions that but you, and let your curiosity lead you!
  • Choose an obsession that you can turn into a meaningful art project!
  • Share your obsession with us in the Project Gallery!

You can see my project from my experience with We Are Fungi in the project gallery to give you a jump start!
