Week 4/5

The days are zooming by! I cannot believe that it has been 5 weeks since I started. Apologies for not updating last week. It was kind of a blur, as this one will be too I expect. I have a presentation this week, a short essay due, starting a new job at Girls Inc, taking part in the orientation for the fine arts media lab (so I can print on Fine Art printers), and starting to construct a surrey bike from recycled bike parts (this is the 2nd idea---1st was too much work). The surrey is for a class I am taking with the visiting artist Abraham Cruzvillegas. He does a lot of found art sculpture and our class is taking part in an exhibition where we have to construct a vehicle. Everyone decided on teams (thank god). Anyway, I'm kinda excited to maybe get to keep this 2-3 seater bicycle/pedicab thingy. It could making going on little errands around the neighborhood kind of fun!

At present, I have a had a couple of meetings with my advisors and they have all been very helpful. For now I am going to look more deeply into paper cutting and artists who practice within this medium. I bought a book this weekend called "Paper: Tear, Fold, Rip, Crease, Cut". It has many amazing examples of artists working with paper. Some make drawings, some do installations, or furniture, or fashion. All I know, is that I have to practice a lot more.

My laser cut piece, now painted white and resting against (for now) a black resin panel. Not quite finished yet.

A piece that I am also working on. *Apologies for the sub par photography. Lighting in my studio is not the best for this. Have to bring in my own lamp I guess!
