the fish tank band performing “Drip”

#theartassignment   episode #14 find your band

I love noise and images together. So, I knew what I wanted to do for this assignment.

I had this digital movie from a restaurant outing, about a couple weeks ago, and was saving it to play with later. Now is later. It was the video of the movement in the fish tank (fish) with the crowd restaurant noise in the background. Also, there was the reflections of the ceiling fan and large ceiling fan paddles, captured on the fish tank glass, that I was lucky to incorporate with the images of the fish tank. I consider these a sublime source of rhythm or sound.   

Next, I added a track sound of a “drip” of water, through out the video, as if the fish might be producing that sound (or the fans and paddles, if you prefer). At the end, I added a couple of water splashing sounds to indicate applause and/or encore.

Last, I decided to add the sketch effect to the video because I wanted the feel of less body and more emphasis on details.Video is a little over two min. long, about as long as a song on an album or CD.

The title came easily enough. Just added chimes to the intro because I could. So “bon appe’tit”.

Enjoyed, yes4poe  #the art of being human

"judging books by their cover" episode 13

I went to a place where books are discarded by strangers, placed out on shelves by strangers, observed and bought to be reused by strangers, and, probably, discarded again by strangers. A cycle of books, for books.  I let chance, random, placement, and what I selected to see about these books/ strangers supervise the story I produced. I guess this project is about what others bring to the table and what I bring to the table.

awesome project. Dolores

Remake episode 13 #theartassignment
This assignment was to pick something in our cultural society that you liked and remake it. I picked the art of body design know as tattoos. 
The top photo is that of a mermaid on a young woman’s forearm.
The bottom photo is several tattoos, on the young woman, from her forearm to her neck and chest. By scanning in a sweep panorama on my camera, I created a different version of the tattoo for her arm. 
I enjoyed the assignment. Dolores

"above and beyond the imprint"

#theartassignment  imprint 12

Sopheap Pich works, pictured in the assignment video, are beautiful. The prints remind me of artful timelines or slowed heart rates. I wondered if his life was as beautiful as his works, thinking that simple, conclusive flow, and right the first time around. Not so for me.

My life and art is full of steps, journeys, mistakes, inconclusive flows, and I am rewarded only if I have made many attempts to get satisfaction and taken it way past my intended boundaries. It’s the hard way but I feel righteous about it and have accepted my way of dealing with my art.

In making this piece I used several things for imprinting on the paper, cut up pie pan, blouse, blackberry container, and the blackberries too. I was still not satisfied till I decided to get 3-D with the folds of the paper and making imprints that way. I was in love with the effect. Then I started setting up a scene, as usual, I could not leave it at that. I cut out a female figure from one of my books and “imprint folded” to symbolize myself and added it to the “folded imprinted” papers.  So, instead of a timeline of a day, it is a visual routine of the day.

First photo, steps to getting there. imprint- to mark or fix by pressing or stamping, a mark made by imprinting  ”I consider folding an imprint.”

Second photo, close up of folded imprints. 

Third photo, I am asking myself, ” installation or diorama?”

I enjoyed the assignment. Thanks, Dolores
