reileen: (art - paint jars)
My ART260 professor submitted my second project to the student curator, to be put up for display in the hallway of the third floor of the art building. The objective was to tell or suggest a narrative of some sort primarily through manipulation of type. That sort of thing is one of my (many) weak points as an artist, and overall I'm not really impressed with what I churned out. But then again, I'm not overly disappointed by it, either. It fulfilled the assignment requirements, and my professor thought it was good enough to put up, so I guess that's that.

Apologies for the bad lighting quality plus the flash; I was using my point-and-shoot (instead of the department's sexah digital DLR camera).







There's also a current call for student works to be submitted to the winter quarter thematic show.

Hide, Hyde, Hide and Seek: Winter Quarter Thematic Show
Submission deadline: January 15, 2010
Exhibition: Jan. 27 - Mar. 1
Opening reception: Jan. 27, 4:30pm - 6:00pm


This thematic exhibition will explore the notion of word play in three different ways: Hide, Hyde, and Hide and Seek. The interpretation can be literal; people or things, lost, missing, leaving or metaphorical; seeking, searching in spiritual, psychological and philosophical ways, as in The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The artwork can adopt one of the three words or all three. Work selected for this exhibit may or may not initially appear to conform to this theme. However, consider what is hidden and what is revealed in both the work you see and the work you create.

I'd love to be able to do something for this. However, I am currently running into a big honkin' white brick wall of non-ideas at the moment.

On Twitter, Smart Bitches Trashy Books posted a link to this book from Samhain Publishing, in which it is not at all apparent what that man on the cover could possibly be compensating for. [/sarcasm]

(Incidentally, I love the description at the bottom of the story synopsis. "Cornea-blistering sex scenes" makes it sound like the sex scenes would give you an STD so bad that your corneas would eventually melt off. Not exactly the sexiest image, that.)

That got me thinking, though: what would the female equivalent of this phenomenon be? A woman holding two Strategically Placed melons in her arms? A woman standing in a field of flowers with one particularly delicate bloom (bonus points if it's still just a flowerbud, actually) covering up her poon?
