"a friend is"
"a friend is like knowing the back of your hand. a friend has your back. a friend is an ally. a friend is a foundation you lean on. a friend is like a wealth of treasure. a friend stays close to your heart. when a friend is gone, not even red wine can make you forget."
dedicated to my best friend ever. I miss her dearly.

"stretching my religion"      

episode #14  

I have always put sounds to selective pieces of my art works, mostly to tell the story I want to tell.

"stretching my religion" is about staying bound to my religion/philosophy, while accommodating other religions/philosophies.

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
