Sorry guys! It’s only Tuesday and I am already doen with this week! I some awesome vlogs this week, I feel that a lot of you are now seeing a different side of Eva and Franco. At first you “hated” them and now you see their reasoning behind a few of their works and it’s starting to make sense to a lot of you. I went through the same exact thing you guys! At first it was just so hard for me to grasp their ideas for reasons such as: never seeing anything like this before and trying to understand their reason for “sabotaging”. Of course now I know there really was no malicious intent in any of their works even though it might seem to come off that way. It’s quite interesting to see a new medium of art that is not so typical like many of us are used to. This is what a lot of you had mentioned in your vlogs, and I absolutely agree with you guys. Now onto my “FAVORITES” of the week (:
- “Art should not be restricted to a certain amount of people, it should be show to the entire world.”
- “To someone else in the “game” who understands the effort and the time it took to build that character would value the time and ability it took to make this character come to life.”
- “Their art is not conventional, it’s very out there, and they just want people to understand that art is not confined to an easel or a studio, it is anything in reality, they want to just make you think about what is going on in the world, and to understand that anything is art you just have to see it that way… if you can express an opinion or and idea through it visually then it is art.”
- “If someone who has done it before, who cares we’ll do it again, if someone says it has been done many times before, their response is who cares we’re going to do it our way, We know who we are, we will not be influenced by others against us… won’t be restricted y anyone else.”
- “That’s how I wish to see myself, but that is not myself.”
- “A projection of our identity, idealistically not facially”
- “The past shows us our future”
- “Sometimes we must fool people to get a sincere reaction.”
Guys, I wanted to give this post a cool title. So I googled “random title” and it took me to this website:
^^And this is what I got.^^
Anyway, grading was kind of whacky this week so I didn’t see as many of your awesome galleries as I would have liked to but I was lucky enough to see some.
I liked Anthony’s kind of simplistic architecture , It’s clean and just really nicely built. Perhaps with a different texture, but other than that, nice start!
And Eddie, the light house is most definitely sick work! I can’t wait to see the finished product (perhaps with different texture, eh?)
But I was most impressed with Andrew’s Tuna Longfellow gallery. The cards were a nice touch! I’m impressed with your work, sir. Continue.
LOL! Hi everyone!
I thought it was so funny how so many of you guys couldn’t pronounce her name properly, but that’s fine, it was just a trend that occurred this time. I decided to try and spell her name in the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) since that’s my major, and I felt like being a nerd today 😛 But unfortunately I could not because I do not know how to type some of the symbols on my computer so I did this in the American Phonetic Alphabet (APA) 🙂
So Glenn decided to switch up who grades who this week, which I thought was kind of exciting only because I want to get to know more of you guys in this class. So, I was very pleased with my new group of students, so glad to see some new and familiar faces! I just want to say that I appreciate you guys for stating your true opinion on the matter of eva and franco, yet still remaining respectful and not entirely putting them down but backing up you responses with facts and personal feelings. Honestly this is how I strive to live my life so I applaud you guys 🙂
Moving on, MY FAVORITE PROJECTS OF THE WEEK 😀 there’s just so many every time I grade lol. Honestly I chose my favorites based on the ideas you guys presented not really on technicality 🙂
THE GIRLS TOTALLY ROCKED THIS ONE! LOL 🙂 GOOD JOB YOU GUYS! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!
