UIC has a beautiful campus! Even on a gross day it looks really pretty. I took this picture when I was visiting the campus for an artist's lecture by Kara Walker.


On my last day of my internship we had an art festival, where we (interns) were thanked with bouquets. I came home and split up the bouquet into smaller vases to keep around the house.

Maybe it's lame but I titled this piece "חיים" which means "life" in Hebrew. I gave it that title because I was thinking about how the word chayim is plural, and there is no singular form of that word, and what the implications are. Our lives are made up of many different parts, different "lives," which we all have to integrate into our one life, our one word.

I made this piece after thinking a lot and before writing a paper on this topic. I interviewed artist Tobi Kahn before writing to hear what he had to say. I wish I could transcribe the interview and post it, but the recording program I used to capture our conversation through skype made this horrible static on the recording and I can't really hear it very well. I was able to sit through it to get most of what he was saying, but not enough for a word-for-word translation.

Anyway, that's my art post for now!

View of winter...

To remind myself of how it was, so I am grateful for the 60s and rainy weather in May. At least today doesn't have a high of -2, like in January, right?

I owe this blog some good posts. Here I am making art almost every day and sharing almost none of it. Maybe during the break I will take pictures and scan and update like a mad lady.
