Week 15 – Artist Interview – Troy Rounseville


So this week i was really fascinated by Troy Rounseville and his self played instrument creations. He said “this exhibition explores the disjunction between our physical embodied experience and it translation through technology mediation. This Project was strutted around a series of questions that have been exploring through my work.”  I walked in the exhibit and was wondering how all these instruments were playing themselves and also it was super loud in there which definitely caught my attention. what was really cool about it also it like the keys on the keyboard were moving by itself and the guitar strings too i was also mmid blowing. I still amazed that all these instruments were playing themselves and were connected all these wires going in different directions. Its just makes you think of what technology can do anyhow cars its come.

So this week i was really intrigued by by the Gatov- West Gallery and all the painting were so unique and done by different artists. I just love paintings in general because they all have a story to tell and have a reasoning behind it. And even though most of the paintings were done by different artists they were all cohesive and some how came together as a whole like they were all done by one person. A lot of the of the pairing consisted of people but also like scenery and there also different textures used like bumpy and rough looking ones.

Week 12 – Teach – String art


so this week this activity is TEACH, so i chose to do string art. It really fun I’ve helped my friend make one for her from before. You can make string art say or be in the shape of about anything. There has always been one i have wanted to do what  didn’t have a big hough board to do it on so i tried anyone i wanted to try out too i have a moon with wording underneath.


first you are going to need a board of wood, nails, paint (if desired), and sewing string. the first thing you going to need to do is paint the board a desired color and wait for it to dry.

next you need to nail your nails in to the desired position or shape you want them to be in, and after they are all nailed in you start to string the string around the nails and theres no real certain to way todo it just go for it and after your done stringing it you can write a message on it if you want, i did because here was a certain thing i wanted to do.

Week 12- Artist interview – Timothy Cooper


This week i was really intrigued with the exhibit done by Timothy Cooper. When i walk into the exhibit all i saw were plates raise a little off the ground and to me it looked like this was a huge  plus sign but it could be interpreted it any many ways maybe as a cross or anything  else. What i though was really cool was that he got handfuls of people to come together and make the plates together and make a positive personal, social, and aesthetic experience. some of the glaze that what put on them looked a little different on all of them i don’t really know how to explain it maybe the way they dipped them in it idk but they looked really cool even though they are all glazed the same color they all had different looks to them. Over all one of the most interesting pieces I’ve seen this semester 😀
