For this project, we were assigned to create a fake artifact with some sort of history significance, and present in a way that translates into modern day. For the seminar portion of the project, we were meant to research the topic of the artifact and write a paper about our findings and process.
I chose to create a sound piece imitating an argument that could’ve occurred between 1920s power couple- F Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. I used the visual element of a music box with a rotating ballerina to present my sound piece.My intention for the project was to reflect on how Zelda Fitzgerald’s creative work was often over shadowed and ignored. I was inspired by the Morgan Library and Museum for this project.
