In my mind, the pieces I make are characters in their own little world. These two were made to be stackable pieces where the one on the bottom simply seemed a bit despondent to be, well, the one on the bottom. Since they could be separated I decided to have one portfolio shot of them side by side. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that cropping them added a whole new dimension to their personalities. The guy on the left is clearly wondering "what is his problem?"
I think it would be great to take some of my pieces and line the up for what appears to be formal portfolio shots but with some editing creates a whole new scene.

With the synergy of the electronic environment, the matrix is superseding a point where it will be free from the chaos to transcend immersions into the contortions of the delphic reality. Work of Meta-Art in the Age of Artificial Reproduction contains 10 minimal flash engines (also refered to as "memes") that enable the user to make inorganic audio/visual compositions.
measuring chains, constructing realities
putting into place forms
a matrix of illusion and disillusion
a strange attracting force
so that a seduced reality will be able to spontaneously feed on it
Wendy Gilbert's work investigates the nuances of modulations through the use of slow motion and close-ups which emphasize the Artificial nature of digital media. Gilbert explores abstract and expansive scenery as motifs to describe the idea of infinite reality. Using translucent loops, non-linear narratives, and interactive images as patterns, Gilbert creates meditative environments which suggest the expansion of time...

I started substitute teaching this year. Based on the various looks I get from the kids as I explain the "busy work" that has been left for them to do that day, I started my attitude series.
I picked this particular one because today I feel "Blah!"
For Sale: 4x6 original, comes framed $20.

I also made two clay small sculptures:
a mini test robot for my bfa show
a silly little cat to sit outside our door as a welcome sign
I also started adding color to my "attitude" series of doodles
