the jar project

content: jars 
process: create individual terrariums based off of the climates (tropical-desert) in the united states

in the inauthentic life we tend to dismiss our surroundings.
 by creating artificial atmospheric jars i hope to illuminate the issue of average everydayness. 
after a final assessment of this work i decided that the general theme was entrapment.
entrapped by: 
the home (my tiny apartment) 
work (ever scene office space?) 
society's expectations 

on a lighter note...

i just did it because i like jars, i think they're purty. C: 
also cacti are sweet. 

also here is an image from  the box project piece.  

the tree that is coming out of the top is called a money tree.

(p.s. snot can travel at up to 150 mph)

ikea catz

This is pretty brilliant.

It's not only a great marketing strategy but is just about the coolest thing one could think of to do in Ikea (without involving 100 tons of strawberry jello).

Ok... So today I stumbled upon these artists, Steina and Woody Vasulkas, while surfing the net.

There work is pretty much spectacular.

There is so much yes in that.

first week in sculpture and i was told to create two masks. 
i wanted to do an instillation piece but my idea was shot down when we were told 
"to not get too crazy."


but i still liked how they turned out:

personal and collective unconscious 

this one is titled
grave humor

eh. i am hoping that for the next assignment i can step out of my box a little bit (my box being made of paper and cheese cloth).
