Slump Test























The Slump Test is a social practice research project investigating the effects of online learning on Concordia Fine Arts students during the COVID-19 pandemic. This name is adopted from the construction industry, where the cone is used as a mold to measure the consistency of concrete. Results are categorized by four outcomes: True, Zero, Collapsed, Shear. The cone becomes a visual metaphor exploring the ways students spread out, as their homes become all encompassing. Not just a measurement tool, the cone is re-contextualized domestically, as the home becomes a job site and daily life becomes something to approach with caution. By inviting participation, students share desk-self-portraits, answer survey questions and are interviewed. The work has no clear hypothesis and instead attempts to both represent and measure the aesthetic and emotional qualities of students’ current situations, working in isolation.
