No Titled

PARTNERS: Ana Martins (UFMG), Gabriela Sá (UFMG), Sabina Hannila (UCA)

COLLABORATION PLAN

- we have all agreed on creating a made-up character, living in a made-up world. We will portray this person in his/hers different stages in life (childhood, as a teenager, and as an elderly person). We have all decided on which stage in life we want to portray.

- we will write a journal about this person, and try to "merge" this journal so it seems that it is written by the same person.

- we will write a task list on stuff that we're going to take photos of, and we will try to do this everyday. it's going to be very simple, everyday things.

- for our presentation we're discussing including both text and sound aswell

Hugs, kisses and other things

PARTNERS: Elisa Grasso (LMU), Vanrochris Vieira (UFMG)

COLLABORATION PLAN

We are going to investigate the corporal expressions that revels affection for next people. We will make videos with interviews with pairs of people and we will also take some pictures that summarize what they say about this topic, trying to show the cultural similarities and differences between the countries.

Public private spaces

PARTNERS: Grigoris Digkas (UCA), Vanrochris Vieira (UFMG)

COLLABORATION PLAN

We are going to investigate the ideas of vulnerability and intimacy in modern societies, marked by consumerism and stress in all aspects of everyday life. Each of us will make pictures in the other's private spaces using skype. We will then create grids of images on specific subjects, trying to show the cultural similarities and differences in the framework of the modern societies' environment.

COLLABORATION PLAN

- What if at 4 p.m your day was just beginning?
For Here, Now collaborative project we will play with the idea of space-time, combining space and time into a single continuum. It consists in setting up a “personal time” between ourselves that would go beyond the real time. This way, simultaneity would grow further and the concept of relativity would be extreme: three different times and places converging to one fictional space-time, a 3rd dimension. The main idea is to each of the participants to get a watch, in which would be set a combined time that is not equal to any of the respective time zones, and live by it for an entire day. We will live by the same time and blend our spaces as one, making distances shorter and time relative.

COLLABORATION PLAN

For this collaborative, we want to make the physical distance disappear by making projections of each other's body in our own bodys, as if we were one. In the first moment we are trying to work with the superexposition and our own bodies before exchanging our images for each other to work with.

Stereotypes

PARTNERS: Chloe Plumb (LMU), Claudio Vitor Vaz (UFMG), Tushar Joshi (NID)

COLLABORATION PLAN

This multimedia project is intended to present views of ordinary citizens in three different countries who live out their daily lives. What they think, what they feel, and what image they have about Brazil, India and England shows us how connected and disconnected we are with each other. Random interviews with citizens will show 'Here and Now', and portray representations and ideas that we have about other parts of the world. The interviews are short and the participants are asked to generalise what they think that country is like, against varying backdrops of parts of the city; for example, their workplace, a fast food joint on a mode of transport. This will highlight the similarities and differences between our countries and emphasise the local and the global. This project breaks down our social barriers as we interview strangers, utilising video and sound to bring us closer as individuals and to unite our countries in one joint body of work.

All students have contributed to designing this task, using their different experiences and artistic knowledge to make a multi-layered project.

The Chain

PARTNERS: Claudio Vitor Vaz (UFMG), Lucy Mytton (UCA), Nachiket Gujar (NID)

COLLABORATION PLAN

Our project will explore into the different identities of our partners lives. A chain of events written as a list will be passed from one person to another, for that person to create a piece influenced by the previous persons events and images. Each person will spend a day on their sequence, once all three have done a day, the process will repeat once over again in a different pattern. The process should take 6 days.

PARTNERS: Charlotte Wormley-Healing (UCA), Lorena Galery (UFMG)

COLLABORATION PLAN

This project is a collaboration by two people - Charlotte Wormley-Healing, Farnham UCA, UK and Lorena Galery, Brazil - This collaboration was formed through a collaborative project that spreads across four universities in three countries; India; UK and Brazil.
In this project we aim to proceed quite simply on a path of personal discovery - discovering both ourselves and each other, through a photographic dialogue.
Using this blog we will work within only two constraints: that our replies to the images have to be made and uploaded within twelve hours of the image we are replying to, and that each image must be in some way both a reply to the last and revealing about ourselves or what we think about the other.

We will be using a blog - http://charlotteandlorena.tumblr.com/ - to document our project, as this is a simple and effective way for us both to keep up to date and in contact, and for others to easily view our dialogue.

PARTNERS: Lorena Galery (UFMG), Lucy Sloss (UCA), Luíç Caixote (UFMG)

COLLABORATION PLAN

This project is a game of exchange in which each participant inspires the production of the others. Using the structure of a blog, the game of stimuli occurs with each one making a posting of any image, video, sound or text that can be supplemented by the others or stimulate their creation. In response, other participants publish what they produced from that stimulus.

Besides the game of exchange, the project is performed as an interactive construction of different media. The proposal is to build, on a blog (http://collectiveinspiration.blogspot.com/), a short narrative through a process of Collective Inspiration.

Street View Journey

PARTNERS: David Summerill (UCA), Ishaan Dixit (NID), Mariana Borges(UFMG)

COLLABORATION PLAN

For the Collective Body program, we propose that the person show the city where he/she lives. The idea is: Using the tool “Google street view”, each person will select the city of his/her partner and will choose some places that he/she considers interesting (by the photos showed in Google street view). It doesn't need to be a tourist spot, could be a different house, a bus stop, a street full of people, for example. After this, the partner will give the directions of this place to the other one and will show him/her the photo generated by Google. So the person that lives in this city will have to go to this place and make different photos of it, trying to show the partner how it is, how are the people that go there, the details and the interesting things that happen there. There are three people in the project, so we will take turns.
