Collage Day at the Library

Although I was fighting a hangover, today was an excellent day creating collages with my friends at the library. Nikki and I were preparing for the postcard art show, Ken was creating Halloween cards, and Jenny worked on various projects.

YBCA Visit

Today I visited YBCA to take pictures of my transformed installation and to enjoy a few more new sculptural pieces. The most interesting was this strange box that I think was for some kind of chemical experiment, but instead reminded me of a place to keep a sex slave. Notice the strange wooden spindle. The best thing about it was that moths had somehow gotten into the museum and were attracted to the wool lining. An amazing accident that made the piece so much more interesting.

Academy of Science

Today I visited the free day for the Academy of Science and it was very, very packed. I took many pictures of the skull exhibit and sketched for a short time. The proportions on the sketch are really off, but it was extremely relaxing and meditative, despite the chaotic loudness around me.

Robb Putnam Art Opening

My friend, Robb Putnam had his art opening at the newly-located Rena Bransten Gallery. Not only do I love the aesthetics of his work, but the concepts are strongly powerful and always make my mind spin with possibilities.
