I spent my entire spring break making things. And it was awesome. My back got sore being all hunched over working at my table, but stretching helped with that. The quiet studios were glorious, giving me enough silence to be able to think clearly. And I got to use the kilns over break. Behold the power of the grad student! And the mercy of the head of fine arts. Hahaha! I wish we had more breaks like this, just days and days of producing. I feel like I got more done in the past week than I have all semester. I know that’s not true, but firing pieces seems to give things finality and the idea of having accomplished something. It’s interesting too, talking things over with Jenn, seeing as she doesn’t have any art background. We put our heads together and went thrifting, finding a possible way to display the animations. We’ll see if we can get it to work. Technology! Metal Boxes! Gears! Coffee! I’m going to go animate things now.
