Each bird has its own call, even when they all sound like "tweet, tweet" to us. By learning to listen to each unique song, we will learn to sharpen our hearing.
We listen to a sound and use it to inspire a drawing. We challenge ourselves to be inspired by the sound we hear.
What does it look like?
Does it sound like a big or small creature?
Is it real, imaginary, or a bit of both?
We can make our own interpretations of sounds through drawing. This allows us to understand sounds in our own personal way and allows us to include all the information we think is important.
We can use different shapes to represent different sounds, and different colors or shading to represent different sound textures.
Isn't it amazing to observe how sounds have a shape? Through learning experiences we learn to hear this shape. It is indeed interesting to transfer sounds onto shapes through listening practices!
The chance to play with big movements and big energy is extremely liberating. This invitation to create a large nest (possibly for an eagle?!) connects us in a way that smaller projects never have and it unites us as a team.
Drawing with chalks on concrete allow us to express our creativity. Our drawings represent various designs of invitations to the birds to visit our large nest installation.
We too wonder together about the meaning of our photographic representations. Do we try to animate the movement of the birds? Do we project our imaginative footsteps or footprints comes alive through our body gestures?
When we think the similarities of our footprints are close to our observation.
Another thinking - "there will be three toes (as the photograph) ...".
It's time to trace our own feet prior to comparing to our previous observation. Let us observe and figure out more on our further explorations!
In the meantime, it is time to treasure our moments of joy and friendships!
