Gavin Brown Enterprises: Reflection
This project challenged me to continue building the skill of continuing when I don’t know how things will pan out. How did this project challenge and inform my practice? I think in a more technical sense, working with other people was good practice for trusting team members. Initially I had wanted to edit the video because I’m kind of a control freak, but also because there was some part of me that thought I could do it better. But ultimately I had to admit to myself that I was busy that week, and Roy would (and did) do a great job with it! I think my skills were most valuable in the place that we had initially agreed upon (director of the project.) So definitely working on my group-skills and task delegation.
Ok. So. It was a really interesting time doing this whole project. And there are things I would change about it, but it’s not always worth being as critical as I am because at the end of the day, we did what we could and acted on what our instincts were to create what we did. I really didn’t realize what this project was actually about until we had finished it, and we were discussing the “final product” (our video) with the class. I almost wished we had more time to work on this. So much came up for me after we ended the project about what it means to gentrify an area, also about my interactions with the staff at Gavin Brown Enterprises.
