For her project titled Salt Bride, Israeli artist Sigalit Landau decided to submerge a black gown in the Dead Sea. The gown spent 2 months in the salt-rich waters in 2014, and as you can see from these stunning pictures, the end result is nothing short of magical.
The project is an eight-part photo series inspired by S. Ansky’s 1916 play titled Dybbuk. The play is about a young Hasidic woman who becomes possessed by the spirit of her dead lover, and Landau’s salt-encrusted gown is a replica of the one worn in the dramatic production of the 1920s.
Landau checked on the black gown various times in order to capture the gradual process of salt crystalisation that you can see in the pictures below. You can also see them at London’s Marlborough Contemporary.
What tools work in the art room when you have Chromebooks?
In Art I using media specific projects I create modules of study in Canvas.
In a printmaking unit I have a pre-test quiz, edpuzzle video that I show before we do the monoprint exercise, artwork reflection. The students make safety videos and then upload them to YouTube and place a link on Padlet.
Once the monoprint exercise and linoleum block print are finished, I photograph their artwork and put the images on Artsonia.
In Digital Photography my students create blogs on weebly. You have a certain number of student accounts for free. The advantage of weebly student accounts is you can look up their passwords and edit their blogs if necessary. If students are stuck I made screencastify (a chrome extension for making videos in your web browser). I post my videos to youtube and embed my videos on a canvas page.
I am at teacher with Stokes County Schools.
