SPEAK FOR ME… Timmy Cook’s Final

May 3, 2012 | Comments Off on SPEAK FOR ME… Timmy Cook’s Final

  This idea sprouted into my mind after researching Matt Siber. I absolutely loved his work from the beginning, with his ability to manipulate his environment so perfectly that he could leave something so unnatural and foreign in our minds with the possibility that floating signs really could exist. I began to think about what […]

PLEASE DON’T GO!!!

Although the stop sign does it job by sticking it to us the most direct and obvious statement…Stop, I felt that a stop sign would become tired of asking, telling, and sometimes being ignored. I wanted to give the stop sign something polite, direct yet simple to give drivers more of a chance to feel […]

I stopped counting after sixteen hours which included a lot of brainstorming, taking pictures, learning the process in photoshop, and putting it all together with the explanations!  

I…GOT MUGGED

May 3, 2012 | Comments Off on I…GOT MUGGED

The elevators at Eagle Landing have been in the most unfortunate boxing match with certain residents all year. Every weekend, a new scar is added to a long list of history for the elevators. I wanted to give a chance for the elevator to speak directly to the students rather than just the angry maintenance […]

HOME, SWEET HOME

The signs next to every door at the eagle landing apartments are anything but warm and personal. The same UMW logo (also the Arlington county transport) was displayed above every room number, giving people a dreadful sense of uniformity rather than that of homeliness. With the color blue signifying trust and acceptance, I need to […]

TEMPORARILY “FREE”

  The visa sign really got me thinking, as the word didn’t have any symbolization to me and in fact to the millions of people who use plastic everyday. I felt like the visa sign felt guilty, as it encouraged people to spend without knowing the background story first. The juxtaposition of the blue and […]

Updated Final Idea

move outta the way old idea, my new idea is coming through… The idea was inspired by Matt Siber’s work. My vision is to give personalities to signs of whatever form. What would a stop sign say if it could speak? I would like to delve into that psyche.  My work will contain both images […]

The Paikonic Pighway

Never cut the power on Nam June Paik because it is obvious he is going to need it to breath. His art consists of technology, mainly televisions that he has manipulated in various forms. Whether it is a robot constructed out of televisions or robots constructing a television, Paik’s art is unique to say the […]

The Final

I find a lot of inspiration from my oceanography class, learning about how everything in the world is really connected. For my final, I would like to combine a few of the processes we learned about in class, combining areas of gifs, photoshop manipulation as well as image uploading from the internet. I would like […]

Rist Without Peace

April 16, 2012 | Comments Off on Rist Without Peace

  Rist is a very forward thinking artist, with her ideas bordering on the edges of reality in the forms of videos, photographs, and the convergence of the two. Immediately I was attracted to the layout of Rist’s website. I was able to interact with it on multiple levels as I “searched” for her art. […]
