it's gonna hit you with a big wave

last weekend steph took me out to Mesopotamia... not the land between the Tigris and the Euphrates... but amish country in Ohio. it was very cute but VERY cold, like probably the worst day to be outside taking pictures of the whole year. i tried to take a polaroid and it froze.

they only echo

a couple of my first polaroids taken on my barbie polaroid with impossible project film.

i'm currently toying with a vintage swinger polaroid land camera... but with little success. i'll keep you updated. so far the only thing i can get to work is the flash bulb. although my first two pictures have come out white at least the tiny burst of smoke was satisfying.

it's the the weight of your load

some images i'm using in a slideshow presentation for one of my classes this semester. it's all about the MATERIAL.

all above were eva hesse, one of my long time heroines

some porcelain work exhibiting its transparent properties

some more ceramic work exhibiting its plasticity
this piece was done by a girl who graduated ahead of me at my high school. i love her work, she paints engobes on paper and layers them in the kiln, the paper burns away and she is left with layer and layers of paper thin clay. it looks like millions of years of rock formation.
this piece is a compositional pot connected with chicle, the stuff chewing gum is made from!all the rest of the images are of andy goldsworthy's work. he is a genius, and there is not much else to be said.
these are leaves on a branch

in his movie, rivers and tides, you get to watch this amazing creation float down the river and disconnect

i think his most interesting work is the red paint rocks, he smashes them all up and makes color bombs, throws it in the air, floats it in rivers and small pools. absolutely stunning.
well, i'm inspired, and super excited for this semester of college.

waiting there for me

i don't have much to say about the new year. i'm not really making resolutions. i think i made some life resolutions earlier this year and now i am just saying to keep on doing what i've been doing during the past 7 months. and i think that's enough.

i just finished the sound and the fury and i'm feeling strong and ready.
