    More
    The work of Alex Israel is deeply entwined with his hometown of Los Angeles. The artist creates art that riffs on Hollywood culture and the cult of celebrity. His first major body of work consisted of rented studio props, transformed into readymades by their placement in the gallery—some blatantly obvious in their artificiality. He gave celebrities the same treatment in the video series “As It Lays”, video portraits based on campy TV talk shows.

Holly Tempo: 2008 TLC Technology Grant Report


Excerpt:

Project Implementation:

In late January 2008, my class of eight students attended a workshop presented by Heather Cleary on how to create e-portfolios. I spent many hours researching existing e-portfolios on the Otis website. I made suggestions to students about how they might want to structure their portfolios based on what I observed to be the more successful examples. Students were then instructed to create an e-portfolio, or update existing ones. By mid-February, everyone had a new or updated e-portfolio on O-Space. I also created an e-portfolio for myself for the first time.

Specific project activities included the following:

  • Attendance at workshops presented by Heather Cleary (two for me; one for students in class)
  • Researching e-portfolio offerings on O-Space and identifying best practices
  • Helping students troubleshoot e-portfolio creation/updates
  • Monitoring student e-portfolio activity
  • Creation of my own e-portfolio
  • Researching Fine Arts Department presence on e-portfolios
  • Sharing project with Fine Arts Department Assistant Chair, Christine Reynolds
  • Surveying student satisfaction with e-portfolios
  • Compiling survey data and writing report

To access the e-portfolios from my class, please click on the following links [NB: some e-portfolios may no longer be available]:
