waste...


Thinking back on the whole trash waste whatever project, I found this website that is all about rethinking waste. It's a project going on in Perth, Australia, and located in this old ex-library. They want people to look at waste more as a valuable resource rather than...waste.....so whatever. check it out: www.remidawa.com

I really really really like how my project turned out! It looks pretty much nothing like how James described it, but I'm ok with that. I think that the collage look I went for worked well. I love how the fabric going through the sewing machine turned out.

new project!!!





New Project for CFC= totally cool! We each picked out a 20th century work of art, wrote a page description of it, and then traded descriptions with other people in class. We take the description and make our own worked based off of that. 
Mine is a 'photo-realistic charcoal drawing', black and white, of a woman sitting next to an old-fashioned sewing machine in a room. The page is divided down the middle by a wall, and behind you can see a bedroom with boxes stacked untidily around, and paper clippings on the wall. 
I've been looking in photography books, and I found a picture of a woman taken by Cecil Beaton that I LOVE, and I've based the woman in my work off of her. I was looking for someone a little depressed, because I imagine the woman in my piece to be rather forlorn and hopeless, since she's stuck in a room with a bunch of sewing to do.

I changed my idea kind of. The top or the spine, which branched out over my head, became a tree, which I filled with various pieces of trash, like a fountain pop cup, a styrofoam carry-out container, and a popcorn bag. I painted them all green, and the project ended up looking really nice.
