Hey Mom, look at me now.


Sara F. & I have painstakingly hand crafted "Breakfast" out of felt this year. We are quite proud - and after a close race, we came in second to Vince Leo's look alike in the annual MCAD Costume Contest.

Figure 1


Figure 1: A Scientific Documentation of 3 Bipedal Organisms is an installation for our Ideation & Process class. We experimented with the concept of the 'white cube', and explored making the personal impersonal and vice versa. We manipulated our non traditional location to make the space somewhat interactive by creating a web of string from which we could hang objects; hoping that perhaps we could force the viewer to get personal with our objects. Also, since our space envelopes the entire hallway and can be seen from every level of the building through windows, the space becomes unavoidable.







We basically ended up with a collection of collections. By taking our prized possessions and coveted items and exhibiting them in a gallery space with scientific labels, we felt like we were exposing our objects and ourselves in a very impersonal space. At the same time, the clean and sterile environment of the location became personal through the introduction of our objects, and creating a space with which viewers could interact.




The two other parties involved:
Julian Howley & Sara Fowler
YAY. this was alot of fun.

Eating Through Living


EATING THROUGH LIVING - Jenny Holzer & Peter Nadin

amazing find from the library last night --
i was just perusing the stacks when this little guy caught my eye.

i can hardly find any information about it.
but it has some really interesting observations about people and some insightful truisms.

I could quote a million statements from this book. here's a few --

"I'VE ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT BRAINS, TUMORS, AND CAULIFLOWER LOOK ABOUT THE SAME AND I ALWAYS PICTURE THEM ON WHITE PLATES."

"IT CAN BE STARTLING TO SEE SOMEONE'S BREATH, LET ALONE THE BREATHING OF A CROWD. YOU USUALLY DON'T BELIEVE THAT PEOPLE EXTEND THAT FAR."

"THERE IS A PLEASURE IN STAYING HOME TO ADJUST EACH PHYSICAL DETAIL SO THAT WHEREVER THE EYE FALLS, THERE IS HARMONY. THEN YOU GO OUTSIDE AND DO THE SAME."
