Day 602

It’s almost over and done with. The show has been up for three weeks, my oral defense went well (and Nicole came up with a new term for what I do: a ceramic behavioralist. Haha! )Malcolm also mentioned that before I pack everything away, that I rearrange the arrangement of the boxes and see how far I can push them as sculptures inisisting that they are fragile. I should also send a notice to Columbus Alive that they miss-represented my work. They are not metal, dammit. But that was kind of the point. I’m working on my paper and animations. I’m going to try and get into festivals as well as galleries. We’ll see. I did not get into Ohio Shorts. Blah. There are a few more that I will apply to, thanks to Tracy’s http://noentryfeefestivals.com/ blog. And pictures as promised.

Day 522

I had a fantastic studio visit today with Nicole Gibbs. There was significant discussion about happenstance, chance and centrifugal force vs intent, narration and still lifes. We also talked about scale, albino boxes, the black tiles in the gallery, and architectural deities. She left me with a lot to think about going into my next sculpture. Which I will start very soon. Especially considering how much time is left. Dun dun dunnnnnnnn.

94 tiny boxes. They fit into three packing boxes. A huge undertaking and yet, it seems like I’ve barely done anything. That’s what I get for working so damn small.

This is a potential section of the sculpture. Now, if I have 94 small boxes, 6 big boxes, 4 sides to the sculpture, 2 short films to shoot, multiple short animations, 3D thinking, 0 sleep and a dirty chai, how much work can I get done before I start smelling colors and seeing sound? Word problems in math, the bane of every six-grader.

I’ll have some animations posted soon. I’m going to go find some food and get back to work. That’s it. Come back later.
