Joan Takayama-Ogawa: 2005-06 Faculty Development Grant Report

 

 Enhanced podcast on shipping work

Report:

In June 2006, The Otis Faculty Development committee funded a trip to SOFA (Sculpture, Objects, and Functional Art) New York, where I exhibited work with Ferrin Gallery and investigated how to ship fragile sculpture. During the same period, I was funded for an Otis Technology grant to learn how to develop enhanced podcasts, which integrate narration, music, and visuals in an Apple computer program, Garageband. Thinking an enhanced podcast format would best explain how to ship, pack, and set up fragile 3-D work, I produced a short enhanced podcast, that students, faculty, curators, artists, and designers could view and possibly adapt, when shipping nationally or internationally.
