same time different day assignment- part III

 

whatever wall clock

assignment: what are doing at 9:59?

the same time different day is an adventureclubinteractive favorite. watch the clock this week because you have two chances- a.m. or p.m. to catch 9:59. pause what you are doing and snap a picture- of what you’re doing, of yourself, of what’s around you, where you are and so on… two photo submissions for both 9:59 moments of each day are encouraged.

this assignment is not about stunning photography. it is about observing yourself over the course of a week at the same time. are you a creature of habit? predictable like clockwork? or do your activities at 9:59 have no common thread whatsoever? is it hard to see that the same person was doing all those different things at the same time everyday?

please submit your completed assignments throughout the week via email: adventureclubinteractive@gmail.com

culinary adventure assignment.

I.S.3-show me what you're working with-SE

adventureclubinteractive wants to know what’s cooking! 

this memorial day 65% of americans will be barbecuing (second place to the fourth of july when 71% of americans will be barbecuing). if you plan to host or attend a memorial day barbecue next monday, there is an 87% chance that hamburgers, steaks, chicken or hot dogs are on the menu. there is almost a 100% chance that corn will be offered as a side dish and that barbecue sauce will be provided.

food is a requisite on holidays, for celebrations, community gatherings and get-togethers. surely we come to expect the traditional dish in accordance with the tradition…
but do you ever just get bored and tired of the barbecue sauce at the barbecue?

this week, adventureclubinteractive would like you to share recipes, techniques, and tips that wouldn’t typically make the statistics. recipes that are adventurous, ingredients that are exotic, combinations that are unusual, and preparations that are daring…
feel free to document your culinary endeavors in any format (written summary, photos, videos, do-it-yourself instructions, etc.) but please include a recipe for each submission!

culinary adventure assignment ideas:

  • choose a bizarre ingredient to substitute or add to an old favorite recipe.
    maybe incorporate a bizarre ingredient in multiple recipes throughout the week!
  • attempt to prepare food with an appliance or kitchen tool you are not accustomed to using or that you often neglect. or share unique techniques to use common kitchen items in uncommon ways.
  • forget the statistics. be the outlier. maybe you are attending a barbecue. contribute to the potluck with an outrageous side dish that doesn’t have barbecue sauce. observe the reactions.
  • share a recipe for a timely, laborious, expensive, complex, elegant dish.
    share a recipe that a two year old could attempt to make.
    share a secret recipe. if you don’t know the secret, get in the kitchen and figure it out.

blank canvas I. by- theStephALA

blank canvas

it has been a very long time since i sat down at any instrument with the intention to compose.  sadly, it has probably been a few years, therefore, for the adventureclubinteractive blank canvas assignment i have chosen musical composition as my daily work.  this week i’ve decided to focus my composition on the harp.

it felt wonderful to sit down with the intention to write.  i set my timer for 20 min and just started improvising with various pedal settings until i found a combination that suited my ear.

here is my work in progress so far…

blank canvas progess 1

blank canvas I. by- adventureclubviral

 

for the adventureclubinteractive blank canvas assignment i have chosen two works.

-the first work will be to make something of a canvas board that i painted turquoise at least six months ago. obvious- to those that know me- i don’t draw, doodle, paint, or picture things visually very well. i do have a nice assortment of oil paints, acrylics, crayons, markers, brushes, materials galore. this work will definitely challenge me to make use of my art supplies stash. also- but maybe less obvious to those that know me- perfectionist tendencies tend to smother my commitment to starting and finishing things. case in point- the turquoise canvas has remained for so long- a turquoise canvas with faint pencil erase marks everywhere- because i have been reluctant to decide exactly what i want to do with it, reluctant to just to go for it, reluctant to take on the work.

-the second work involves a hole in the corner of a small fence that separates a portion of my backyard from my vegetable garden. this unfinished fence haunts me before bed at night, and interrupts my garden day dreams. it’s an eyesore and an annoyance. it’s just a hole needing to be covered but a hole that sits above uneven, hard packed soil, spider infested, weed-choked old cinder blocks- and frankly i’m scared of the space. but i will work on it this week, gloved and probably armed (with RAID). what i will do to cover it will be an adventure in gardening resourcefulness and bravery.

pictures in motion assignment

antique video camera

photography that moves

adventureclubinteractive is a platform for expressing creative art.  weekly assignments generally involve using a camera or picking up pen and paper. the assignments always involve commitment, imagination and- of course- adventure.

this week adventureclubinteractive wants to see photographs take flight and hear words become musical or narrative. take the week to compose a short motion picture. perhaps put to use that neglected high-definition movie setting on your digital camera. take a video with your smart phone. use your editing software. maybe you adventure back through the technology black hole- bringing back to life a camcorder from the nineties. share the adventure. film with friends. cast your coworkers. feature family members.

there is no exclusive theme, format or genre required. explore your own inspiration and exhibit your own style. make a masterpiece through a new medium. learn a new lens. maybe you think of yourself as already pretty savvy with pictures in motion? prove it! this assignment is for idiots and geniuses alike.

please submit completed assignments via email: adventureclubinteractive@gmail.com. please include a title and your name as authorship of your work. adventureclubinteractive will post your masterpieces as they are received.

same time different day assignment- part II

12.38

assignment: what are doing at 12:38?

the same time different day is an adventureclubinteractive favorite. watch the clock this week because you have two chances- a.m. or p.m. to catch 12:38. pause what you are doing and take a picture of it. if you don’t have your camera, use you phone (remember that march is phoneography month!) submissions as soon as possible after 12:38 are strongly  recommended. this assignment is not about stunning photography. it is about observing yourself over the course of a week at the same time. are you a creature of habit? predictable like clockwork? or do your activities at 12:38 have little in common? is it hard to see that the same person was doing all those different things at the same time everyday?

challenge: partner potential

Porch Swings-CC

two things at rest have enormous potential

two things together have abundant energy

adventureclubinteractive’s sentence exchange assignment is fundamentally about sharing work. taking one work (i.e. an adventureclubinteractive sentence) and merging it with another work (i.e. an adventure seekers photograph) to create a masterpiece that is more than a sum of its parts.

challenge: realize that your work, your project, your creation, your effort, your art – whatever it is – may stand alone as completely brilliant. at the very least it has potential. explore the potential of your work with a partner. find yourself a friend, face to face, that may or may not have their own work to share. discuss your creation(s). absorb and elicit feedback. embrace criticism. appreciate interpretation. perhaps your partner inspires improvement in your work. perhaps you feel inspired by your partners work. maybe this challenge seems simple but be mindful that the exchange of ideas has likely given way to deliciously unpredictable new ideas. enjoy the energy you have added to your work by simply converting its potential into the energy of exhibition. plan to meet again face to face and plan something specific to share next time. enjoy the accountability of having partner. realize that a masterpiece has potential but with an (albeit small) audience it gains recognition, momentum, energy and even more brilliance.
