proposal for your final project and / thesis

Can you help me understand this Film question?

Please submit your proposal for your final project (scaled up/gigantic) and be prepared to share your thoughts in class. What is your vision? what is its form? what is its practical needs? how are you engaging with the space of the library (indoors and/or outdoors?) Bring examples, sketches and plans. Remember that you are technically putting a show together as a class, collaborations are encouraged. I would also encourage you to start mingling amongst yourselves. No decisions should be made without my approval. We need to consider everyone in the process.

Please note that we are following on the same pathways that we have established in our paradigms and the contextual essays but we are adding prompts for our paradigm to respond to. If the video object was an exploration of the miniature, your final is an exploration of the gigantic.

For example: what is the relation between your work/practice/world and the idea of “error”. Here “error” acts as a prompt, an obstruction if you will. then you can start thinking how you will play with this combination formally. Your prompt needs to be generative. Consider Environmental Humanities and Science Fiction Literature…

Here is a list of prompts you can of:

error
forge
memory
chance
surveillance
public
verify
Deconstruct
wilderness
being lost/being found
utopia/dystopia
etc.

Excerpts from the Libraries grant proposal and what they are advocating for:

“At a time when Americans still struggle to come to terms with how we can address the greatest
threats unleashed by pollution, from rising seas to unbreathable air, this project proposes to look at the
history of Anglo-American cultural imaginings of our climate futures, dystopian and utopian, from the
post-WWII era until today. The establishment of strategies to promote sustainability of the planet in the
current political climate of denialism in the Anthropocene necessitates not only scientific problem-
solving, but humanistic approaches to communicate future threats and potential solutions. Importantly,
this is not a question of “science,” as the facts of man-made climate change are undeniable. Instead, we
posit that the crisis of our contemporary era is actually a question for the humanities: How can we
communicate the reality of the climate crisis as a narrative that makes sense to, and persuades those who
cannot imagine the consequences of society’s overproduction & consumption?”
