Well, the semester is finally under way! Its just about back to the point where it doesn't feel weird/in-between. For a few days there I felt completely unmotivated to do anything at all. Hopefully that's fading a bit though... at least until senoritis sets in.
Art Council seems to be going well, which is good after how shaky it seemed last semester. We had our first meeting tonight and shared ideas for what we could do as a group that would be fun/interesting. We're definitely going to check out some local galleries in Rochester. Personally, I'd really like to get out and explore more. I'd like to stick around here for at least the summer if not longer, so it'd be good to get a better sense of the community, ESPECIALLY the art community!
Other than that its just been classes and emailing, I feel. I'm experimenting a lot for Sem, and I feel as though I may be on to something... Over break, my mother accidentally broke a snow globe which leaked water all over some of my tracing paper. At first I was frustrated, but it actually made a cool effect. Also, it was an event which seems pretty insignificant, but its something that I could not control and that initially frustrated me. It was almost like this symbol of losing something and feeling frustrated and regretful about it afterwards. Its also something that my mother did... And maybe I'm just going crazy and reading way too much into things now, but I took this as an opportunity to expand on what I'm working on, and I'm now using water to crinkle up vellum. All because my mom accidentally dropped a snow globe. Somehow I have made water into a significant material.
I'm going to try and post some photos of what I've been working on/any artists that intrigue me. I need to get back in the game a bit still, but I have the time so hopefully things will start to fall into place a bit more.
