I was so happy with how this turned out. It was kind of a random, rushed idea because I was helping Susannah on a studio project. Plus, this is straight out of camera (SOOC), which I love.
Also, it has been brought o my attention on multiple occasions that a lot of my pictures have grass, and glass in them. Which is true, because I love both of those things. So I apologize if things get repetitive.
I had been wanting to do something hanging from trees from a while, so I am pretty happy that I was able to finally do it and that it turned out. I had such a tough time deciding which one, so there may be more posted later on.
Again, super stuck on a title. So, recommendations would be wonderful.
It stormed this morning, and instead of heading in to work I took pictures in the rain. I love it. I’m not in love with this picture however. But it is something different from most of the pictures I have put up, so I like it. Plus I am feeling super lazy and working on editing pictures, so I don’t feel like going out to take more pictures.
Elliot (my boyfriend) is a computer science major and works for a place that deals with laptops (selling, trading, buying, repairing) at the moment. So he has access to a ton of computer parts that no longer work and would just get thrown out. He likes to teach me about computers, and brought me this hard drive to look at a bit ago, and I kept it to take pictures of (because I am just as much of a nerd as he is). Well tonight he wanted to see what happened when he took a lighter too it. The answer to that question is nothing. At least at the moment. He then put some pressure on it just as he was walking away and it busted. So in case any of you were curious, hard drives can take serious amounts of heat, at least until they get pressure put on them.
In my studio this summer we poured a 200 pound block of plaster and then gradually chiseled away at it to carve something showing motion. I chose to do a long jumper for my piece since I was a long jumper in high school and absolutely loved it.
This project was an insane amount of work. Despite being done for a full day, my hand is still extremely sore, swollen, and I am unable to bend or straighten it all the way. I was so frustrated while working on this piece, I almost wanted to just quit. I even had an arm break off while working (which I am actually very happy that it did). However, despite how much I hated it while working, t was by far the best critique (at least most positive) I have ever had, and I think it may be my favorite piece that I have ever made (other than photographs).
