wrote a whole bunch of shit, but i deleted it instead, but in short, to complain less, i will just say, i worry that people don't like me, which is probably why i don't hang around people. facts: i find out about risd tomorrow.(maybe) i visited providence this past weekend. i haven't yet gone to bed. i'm anxious.
this is hard, because i am bad at blogging and get tired of talking about myself/am self conscious about talking about myself. here are some things that the only people who are reading this already know. I got into SAIC and Uarts. I am waiting to hear back from Pratt, SFAI, NSCAD, and RISD. This is stressing me out. People have been crossing boundaries lately, acting like my mother, and I don't know what signifies that these things are okay? I don't know how to tell them to stop. So I try to nod and be polite, but mostly I don't want to be around anyone! Yuck. Waiting to figure out my summer plans, waiting to figure out my next year plans, waiting to make plans, planning on waiting. in the mean time i made these for deanna's birthday.
I went to the MoMA and saw this piece called Collective Subconscious by Yin Xiuzhen. It was a huge minivan. The Neto piece they had was not that great, but I guess I am not the hugest fan of Neto. Though the William Kentridge exhibit was pretty great, his piece Ubu and the Procession has inspired me for my next 3-d fabrication project, which I will post about when I've finished/started it.
Also, I am free til sunday! cause i'm on sprang break! Christina and Lena are studying for their midterms and I am distracting them. Lena thinks my Mulan bun is dumb, but I really like it.
Lena's mom made cute origamis and yesterday Sophie and I hung out. I took the bus from portland to south station in boston, then the amtrak from boston to Penn station. WHAT A MAZE, it was impossible to surface and took me forever to find the exit.
Then I met up with Sophie at her professor, Wafaa Bilal's, performance piece. He was receiving 100,000 dots as a tattoo as a representation of all the soldiers and civilians that have died in the Iraqi war. After every 100 dots, the artist made a tally in his notebook.
I just ate a huge slice of pizza from Koronets and i'm so sleepy. BUT I WANT TO PLAY! wheeeee! Tomorrow Christina and I are going shopping, at some point I'm going to see my very best friend Michaella, and then I will go home and see my parents, then go back to Portland and have a critique on Wednesday. I am exhausted just thinking about it!
So, Rachel taught me how to use illustrator (sort of) last week so I got excited and made these films to silkscreen from. I also stole stickers from the post office, spray painted them and silkscreened on them. The stickers did not turn out that well because of the way think ink sticks funny to the plastic-y surface. I will be making more soonnnn! In two other colors! Let me know if you want one, Christina when I get around to making your book a sticker will be coming with it! The first print is on nice printmaking paper, I like the way it came out waaaay better. so crisp!
In other news I am totally overwhelmed, I have to finish transfer apps, write two essays, make 4 items of clothing, draw for hometests, ugh! Sorry that I have barely started this blog and am already neglecting...I'll be back! as Ahrnold sez.
The print majors had their open studio and the jrs gave out zines! Here are some of my favorites... Marissa'sRachel's and Maggie's Also here's a little bittie of something i'm working on... Oh no! it's 2:19 in the morning and i'm still at school. yeesh.
this is resonating with me. Two artist talks in the past two days and I don't feel any thing is clearer than it was before. More questions! I like not having a facebook, but I feel disconnected. on top of that i've lost all my numbers because i've got a new phone. lamies. who's reading diz thing?
here is some funny paper i nabbed from d wolfe's recycling, i was using it as a book cover but it fell off cause it was too weak! here is my student id, not in my backpack, in my pocket, but i uploaded it just cause this picture is tooo funny. here is something i took off of another book to put on my altered book. here is a sticker my friend made. shhh. here is a counting book i made at david wolfe's studio, this is 6 and 7 here is a book i made from an envelope i stole out of david wolfe's recycling
i would scan some sketches, but i left my moleskine at home! does anyone want a book? i will send you a blank book with a nice note made out of an altered cover, they can be like 20-30 pages probably, if you want to make tradesies! or just if i like you. doo doo doo.
Okay, so I finally started my blog because I knew that soon I would have something to post. Here is an installation I made for my 3-d fabrication class, the assignment was to make something based off of the word "contrast." The room that it sits in is about 8'x8' it is made from plaster, wire, and mud. I guess I don't really know how I feel about this piece because I have distanced myself enough from it yet. I only finished it Monday morning at seven after staying up all night. The other feeling I'm having is that there are opportunities within this piece that I did not take advantage of, I could have said more conceptually, where as I didn't really say anything. I am kind of worried as my only pieces that are completely resolved are my pieces that aren't about anything other than form. NOT SURE WHAT TO DO. blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblah. am also bad at blogging. lylas/b, Cynthia
