An Afternoon in Cincinnati

On Wednesday, I met my fellow 3D classmates and great teacher at Fountain Square, and from there we made our way to the top of Carew Tower in downtown Cincinnati. This building is gigantic as I’m sure you can imagine … Continue reading

Altered Spacial Perception

After working the whole day on my feet with little or no time to rest, I get so antsy. Tossing pies in a small area for several hours a day, all weekend, makes me the loopiest weirdo at the end of the night and my space is noticeably altered somehow. It’s a confusing feeling but it’s as if I could take on the world. Or not. But it is unlike anything else, most likely because by that time my care and regard for everything has flown out the window. Although this perception is a little negative, at least I have been productive!

Lasting Touch Impression

skin

Touching and being touched: There is nothing quite like running fingertips over a loved one’s smooth skin. The silky sensitive friction is calming and therapeutic. Skin is so beautiful, and it is truly amazing how delicate yet tough the barrier to our sacred vessel is. Not to mention how awesome these (for lack of a better word) diagrams look:

Touching is definitely a positive experience that leaves a lasting impression for me, and is the most important physical sense I can think of. It is an intimate, indescribable feeling.

My models are simply wire, I used a thinner aluminum & also the thicker kind we were given in class. Wire is a lot of fun and helped me to truly test my fingertips’ abilities. It takes a good while to make a nice straight line or a crisp, solid angle. I was surprised to see what I came up with and overall learned a lot about line of course, also balance and teeny tiny muscles’ strength.

At the art school, students were not allowed into the garden. It was protected by a tall wall. I thought that was ridiculous and climbed over and made the work.”1976
