Students documented a consecutive 48 hours to create an installation. 

Deidra Fix made a statement on consumerism and saved the containers of everything she drank in 48 hours. While it wasn’t as much as she was expecting, it was still a lot of drinks. While Deidra didn’t save as many beverage containers as she thought she would, this project has become a segway into her next installation.

Justin Longbine set up somewhat of a science experiment. He soaked drawings in water and presented the soaked drawings as his installation. He expected them to deteriorate more, but the drawings all stayed together.

For Josh Novak’s 48 hours, he filmed the process of creating a ceramics piece. He filmed somewhere around 30 hours total for an hour of video. The action of him throwing paired with his music choice was almost mesmerizing. It was interesting to see the process.

Molly Walter took a screen shot of her phone every time she picked it up to check it whether it was to check the time, an email, or a message. She took 208 screen shots total. She printed them off and taped them to the wall. It was fun to read what different texts said and try to speculate what the conversation was like.

Mark Roundtree drew during different periods of time during his 48 hours. On each drawing, he marked when he started and when he stopped.

Amber Smith illustrated cartoons of different events that happened in her 48 hours.

Staysa Berber wrote in script each text message she received. She loved the irony of handwriting something digital. She wrote the texts on lined paper like what grade schoolers use.

Jessica Seifers created a clock using broken glass over her 48 hour period and documented the process. The clock was a beautiful glass, mosaic sculpture.

While this was a short project, each installation was still interesting. It was a fun transitional piece to move into the next set of installations which will be out in the community!
