Well, my most recent project is a series of photographs. The assignment was to re-do one of your core pieces, so i chose this one,
Now I was completely pleased with my sculpture, so I decided to re-use the concept behind the piece. The concept was degradable vs. non-degradable. But more in depth.
So I decided to go with that and do a photography series of human limbs shot with a camera with the lens covered by a distorted plastic covering (ie: ripped, gel applied to create texture).
Here is one of the photographs so you can get an idea of the results,
it’s coming along! just need to fix the front page and add my portfolio.
my website should be up and running by sunday…
The first artist website I admire is Ryan McGinley’s http://www.ryanmcginley.com/
His layout is very simple, yet effective. It’s not busy, which is why I like it. The focus is on the work, which feel is very important. The website is careful not to take away from the artwork. Since Ryans work is really bright and colorful I believe he made sure that his website didn’t take away from that.
The second artist website I admired was Jason Lazarus’s, who is actually a photography teacher at SAIC. http://www.jasonlazarus.com/
Jasons website is set up in a similar to McGinley’s but the layout is not the same. Both Photographers are careful not to overdue their sites, and careful to give all of the attention to their works. I think that this is a very important detail to take notice to when designing a website. I also feel that a clean crisp layout is easier on the eyes and helps lead the viewers eye to the work instead of anything in the websites layout.
I believe in the soul. The cock, the pussy, the small of a woman’s back, the hanging curve ball, high-fiver, good Scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap, I believe that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, I believe there oughta be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve, and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days. Good night.
