I don't think I have been this busy, ever. But, I have relaxed (a bit) and I'm beginning to really enjoy this! I turned in my first paper (only 1 page) on the topic of Peggy Phelan's "The Ontology of Performance: Representation without Reproduction", quite a heavy read. I still have a dull headache from the struggle to understand. Anyway, I have included some images of what I've been up to this last week.

Lace and The Laser Cutter (Oh, how I love thee!) See the laser on the left, burning out the design.

Tah Da! Presto, a 24" x 48" wood panel (1 of 2) laser cut from the vector drawing I did of the swatch of lace. It was really quite a pain in the --- to get the drawing ready, required learning some new skills (good thing) and begging the lab monitors that I could go over my 1 hour alloted time slot because it was my first time. I think I may have promised to bring baked goods next time. Anyway, I will be returning to complete the piece during my laser cutting session this coming Monday afternoon and will add the second panel to the left of this one. My plan is to paint it next, I think.

I'm interested in layering two very different subjects. In further exploring my interest in photography of images from the home, to the mundane, I've decided to look a little more deeply into the clutter that surrounds our lives and the value we place on things/objects. The below picture is the lace pattern I have made with the wood above,but with a photograph of"clutter" overlayed on top.

    I wish more people would write blogs like this that are actually helpful to read. With all the crap floating around on the web, it is rare to read a blog like yours instead.
