A Little Change

So I've decided that this blog has a little too much inspiration/nonsense and not enough of my actual work. From now on I will dedicate this blog to my work alone and you can visit for the 'everything else'.

I've never really been into crystals but I might be now seeing how great these pieces of jewelry look on ModCloth. The All Mine necklace has a beautiful caramel/ firy hue and the Crystalised ring has that lovely filigree edge. So nice!

Happy Summer! So today is the first day of summer (except it's been feeling like summer for the past month in Baltimore) and also the "longest day" of the year. So if you're around these parts, enjoy the ample amounts of daylight!

Une Femme est Une Femme

Tonight I plan on watching Une Femme est Une Femme, another film by Jean-Luc Godard made in 1961. I'm really enjoying french new wave. But in the meantime, I'm watching my cat dream about running (or so I figure, her little paws are moving) and waiting for the perfect moment to place a bid on eBay for a camera.

Looking for decent work is hard.

Goal: To one day have enough hair growing out of my head to wear a decent topknot.

Anjelica Huston

So I've watched The Royal Tenenbaums far too many times recently, but I simply can't help it, the colors are so vivid and the soundtrack is really good. Very inspiring. And I totally see why Wes Anderson uses Anjelica Huston in just about every movie - she's so terribly glamorous and beautiful.

Pierrot Le Fou by Jean-Luc Godard

High and Low by Akira Kurosawa (this American trailer doesn't really do the movie justice. I watched it in Japanese with English subtitles)

Motorcycle Diaries by Walter Salles (once again, this is the dubbed trailer)

The Royal Tenenbaums
by Wes Anderson (this one didn't call for dubbing or subtitles)

I've been watching a lot of movies lately, some for the first time and some for the second or third. These were some of my favs.

Commencement Show

I realize as a photography major I should probably own a better point and shoot, but here's a cellphone photo of my set up for Commencement. Today's actually the last day it'll be up, it's a huge show with every soon-to-be grad's (I graduate today!!) work up, so that's about 400 people. However the show only opened to the public on Thursday! I haven't even seen everyone's work yet. In any event, it's all pretty exciting and the next time I post I'll have graduated from Maryland Institute College of Art.

It's been so Long!!!

My last post was almost a month ago! Well with finals and almost being a graduate of college, I've been pretty busy. In cleaning out all of my spaces within the Photo dept and such, I found some images that I took over a year ago, inspired by my sad scabbed knees. I fell on some black ice on my way to an internship and it was not pretty. And in case you're wondering, my knees don't look like this anymore.

Dandelion Jam

So I have been veeerry busy this past week and will be for the next couple of weeks. It's the end of the semester and I'm working on finals and my commencement show! Ah! Three more weeks of college! Over the weekend though, I did find the time to make dandelion jam, pictured above. This image is actually apart of my photo book class final, which I will post in its entirety when it's finished.

Blue Gallery

So lately I've been very into Polaroids and instant film in general. This image was taken a little over a year ago. It's a mystery building I used to live near. Inside is supposedly a gallery that you have to make an appointment in order to enter, but it always looked so run down. Also, it used to be two row homes so there are still the two staircases, but one leads nowhere. So now I'm just calling it the 'Blue Gallery'.

So as I've mentioned before, I have an internship at Anthropologie where I help out with displays. It can be really tiring, but it's always so worth it when it's finished. Above are a few things I worked on (the image of the boatbed is before I whitewashed it, I'll try and get an 'after' picture too). And believe me there are plenty more pictures which I'll gradually post.
What I've done in each pic:
1) Boat pre-whitewash
2) I helped cut out leaf-shapes from the contact paper attached to the window and painted some, like decals
3) Attached moss to shelves
4) The blue configurations are made up of rolled paper dyed different shades of blue at one end, I rolled and dyed some of the paper and helped out with making 'clumps' of them

Powdered Wig

So here's my wig in its final stage. It has a little plastic carriage in the front that you can't really see, but Ill eventually have more detailed pictures of it. For right now, you can just enjoy this Polaroid.

Print Fair

So my Nylon prints make yet another appearance.. at the Baltimore Museum of Art Print Fair! Like the series? Buy a print of your own cos they're for sale! Otherwise just come by and see what other great printmakers (and some photographers) are doing in Baltimore! MICA students are free and I believe the entrance fee is $20 otherwise. I'll be working at the "Works on Paper" table for MICA from 2:30 to 6:30 pm. Hope to see some familiar faces!

Last night I received a lovely birthday gift (it's my birthday on Wednesday) of the book Instant Light: Tarkovsky Polaroids. It features 60 Polaroids taken by Andrey Tarkovsky in Russia and Italy between 1979 and 1984. Each image has a poem or description. The Polaroids are absolutely gorgeous.

"Way out west, way out west...."

Headed west to see some fams in AZ. If it doesn't look like the pictured above i.e. animals running around in cowboy outfits, I'm going to be very disappointed.

Also, Happy Birthday Erik!

"Pretty Print"

So I've seen this print randomly before and have kept it in my archives because it's so nice. Then this weekend, it was featured on A Cup of Jo.
So tempting... alas, I have my eye on a few other things too. I'm so keeping this in mind though.

Happy Weekend!

I just submited this image to Sparkapolooza for "Green". Everyone should get in on it! The brief ends March 21st.

Busy, busy, busy

So I've been pretty bust the past week and it's only going to get worse. I have a few projects due two weeks from now, but will have very little time to work on them for I am off to Arizona (for my last spring break ever!) to see family. As for my projects, they are for two classes that I was hoping would be a little more relaxing then they have turned out to be. The first is my intro to fibers class in which we have an accumulation project. And because I've been on such a Marie Antoinette kick, I decided I'd felt a powdered wig, mind you I have no idea what I'm doing. As for my other project, I'm in a book making class and will be making a long book out of origami cranes. I'll proved pictures at some point. As soon as I get back from spring break, I have to have prints done of the first series I posted on here for a print fair at the BMA (Baltimore Museum of Art). So much to do!

Random Image

Something I took with my nylon series, but don't normally include.

Gilt Groupe

Sometimes (namely always) I really wish I had money. Alas I do not. And for some reason, I signed myself up to get sale updates from Gilt Groupe (the 'e' and the end of 'groupe' is to make it look swanky and french), a site designed like a 'presale' for designers. New York Magazine had an article recently about the site where they questioned what Gilt Groupe would do to the retail and pricing of fashion.

Frankly I don't care. All I know is is that I still can't afford this stuff, most of the time. And even if I could, I can't justify spending $40 on a bangle. It's really hard to imagine the women mentioned in the article waiting at their cubicles for these sales to hit so they can rush to buy something that's probably still to rich for their blood.

A well, it doesn't hurt to look.

The Bounce

Everytime I remember this flashgame, I have to play it for the music alone.

The Bounce.

Whitney Biennial!

So it's the time of year for the Whitney Biennial. I'm pretty excited. Check out the link, or this video, for the artists showing this time around.

West Side

So I might be a little late in the game, but TCM is currently showing West Side Story, which I'm seeing for the first time.

And I decided I want to live there. Not the west side, per se, but the movie. Specifically one of the Puerto Rican women. They're surrounded by beautiful saturated colors and the 'slum' apartment building is pretty fantastic plus all the spunk and 'tude. I figure that will make up for the constant breaking out into song.

Also, most of the fighting is dance fighting, so that's pretty safe.

Photo Lecture

So today the photography department hosted a lecture by three very talented MICA grads: Daniel Shea, Jennifer Grimyser, and Rose Cromwell. Unfortunately, I pretty much missed the entire lecture, but I got an awesome impromptu crit from Daniel and Jennifer which was a highlight in my day.

Have an awesome weekend.

So after a long day, I'm finally home. I spent a lot of the day at my internship at Anthropologie sorting and rearranging the drawer knobs. I'm there every Friday, so hopefully next week there will be some photos to share :)

Happy Weekend.

Just a little something I took when the snow was in the process of melting away. Hopefully it won't snow anymore this year *fingers crossed*. I don't know how much I can take! Anyways, I like this picture because of the discoloration happening. I think that might have been because of the cold temp outside, but I'm no Polaroid expert.

Porcelain Dreams

Today I had a talk with the very nice ceramics dept. manager at my school about possibly using the kilns in the dept. Alas, my lack of experience/ the fact that I wasn't able to take a ceramics class here means that I can't use the kiln, which is understandable. Poo! I just really wanted to try and make my own shelf city:

Ah well, there are always summer classes at the Baltimore Clayworks.
