A split up sunset, Fall 2008.
Superstition has always surrounded Friday the 13th for reasons I don’t really care to understand. I’ve never really been a superstitious person, or if I am, it’s not blatant enough for me to notice it. Even past that though, my brother was born on a Friday the 13th, so I know it can’t be bad. He is one of the greatest people that I know. And today was spent cooking, hanging up posters, and relaxing with people that I love. Sure it’s cold outside and it’s sure to get colder, but there was nothing wrong with this day.
I hope everyone’s year was as good as mine was. Of course there were stress and deadlines, but overall I loved it.
The deadline for Nectar’s first issue is February 1, so that’s only a month away.
These are some images for my final project in my Advanced Digital class. I photographed in abandoned locations in Santa Fe and then photographed my models separately and brought them together and tried to create a sense of connection between the figure and the space. I believe that structures are most affected by the people that live in them, and the time without those people. The evidence of their presence is still contained in the space, from the large amount of shoes still littering the floors to the walls smeared with dirt, possibly done by hand. The figures allude to their time and connection within the “home”, and how the figure invigorates a building even after years of neglect and decay.
I am currently in the process of creating an issue-themed art magazine, that will include photos, writing, drawing, painting, illustration, graphic design, sculpture, film stills, etc.
The current theme is titled Evidence of Home. We are planning to get it out by mid-May. Maybe earlier depending on how big it turns out to be. The more submissions we get the better it will be.
Check it out and spread the word!
