White Plastic Cast Toy Horses, Coyote Teeth, Fabric
Casey gave an artist lecture at my school last week. Her work appealed to me because she's interested in haptic experiences (remember when I featured Haptic Lab). Casey does mostly installation pieces but combines film, light, sound, and other elements to create haptic experiences for the viewer. Her work can be violent, aggressive, and confrontational, but is also ephemeral and about temporary processes.
Right now she has an installation in Grand Rapids, MI In Space Gallery at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Art titled The Insatiable Feeling of Soft Ground.
It's been a little over two months since my last entry! It seems a lot longer than that. Needless to say, I have been extremely busy. My senior art show exhibition opening reception is this Sunday, April 11. Everything looks really great. Pictures soon - I promise!
I was able to a lecture on bookmaking a couple of weeks ago to the Odd Topics Society here at my college. It seemed to go over nicely.
Right now I'm working on two computer art projects (a hyperreal series and an animation), two sculptures (one wood, one metal), and still have papers to write. Pretty soon I'll be done with everything though and graduated (YAY!).
Hopefully I'll be returning to my weekly entries by next week.
Favorite of the Week: Sodom, South Georgia by Iron & Wine
The Folk Festival was amazing. I discovered a lot of new favorite bands. I only disliked two of the seven we saw (sorry bands). Sam Beam played my favorite Iron & Wine song first of the whole set! He actually played all my favorite songs. Thanks Sam. Also, Hoots and Hellmouth were awesome. Definitely check them out.
Sodom, South Georgia - Iron & Wine
Legs - Jer Coons
goodbyetomichigan - Nervous But Excited
You and All of Us - Hoots and Hellmouth
These Roads Don't Move - Ben Gibbard and Jay Farrar (from One Fast Move or I'm Gone)
