Art Blog

I got another WordPress, it’s for my art. My most up-to-date art area. Un-edited, uninhibited; just a bunch of stuff I’ve been doing, (hopefully) updated weekly.

I’m hoping to make a website collective of my work from the past few years, including recent stuff. For now my less current work is located here.

The Insides

In Uncategorized on May 26, 2010 at 12:27 am

For the last week and a half, I have been dissecting a cat soaked in preservative with my Anatomy/Physiology class. I’m convinced it’s one of the most fascinating experiences I will encounter. It’s really incredible to see the depths of a living thing. It feels like an adventure every time we reopen the soggy yellow bag and reveal something new. I find that the word “interesting” is the most appropriate word, it is just an incredibly interesting experience seeing the insides.

I have been documenting each day with photographs, click here for more.

Installation Finished

I finished an installation this afternoon.

It’s located about on a ceiling beam in a Canyon Crest art room.

I am elated that this piece is completed, as I have spent off and on about 3 weeks hovering above a classroom on a ladder to install it. It’s made up of cut paper from various books, a frame, and the phrase “Art will save you, if you fall”. I’m pretty content with it although if it didn’t involve climbing a ladder I would probably never stop working on it.

Thanks VanLier.
