Ingredients: 1. Saran wrap and packing tape cast of a 6’ tall man 2. 24’ of clear 1/4 inch PVC tubing, 10’ 1/3cm PVC tubing 3. Toasted sesame oil, and mars black oil paint. (they separate slightly in the “veins” to look more like crude oil)
Independant project, feedback please
First idea: Clear plastic neutral body, orange circulatory system visible through the plastic, gas mask over face with neon orange goo coming out of the intake valve. Second idea: Clear plastic neutral body, clear circulatory system filled with substance that looks like refined oil (think BP, haha), “oil” spilling out of open mouth.

Cinematic space project
I am interested in creating a piece that involves the viewer looking through a lens, into a small closed environment. I want the viewer to feel like a voyeur into a tiny world, or room that I create.

Sheep horns are coming along. I finally have all my lights and things. Some inspiration.

Artists I liked most: Mark Dion & Gabriel Orozco Mark Dion’s work really appeals to the organized-to-the-extreme part of my personality, which I think is unique about us. I would love to spend hours recording and observing and cataloging earth-made items. In fact if I was better at math, I would probably like to be a scientist because of my insatiable need to organize and know as much...
First evening of collecting “the”s off signs/posters for my site book. Scissors were not doing the trick so I got an xacto blade to carve them off the poles. So much tape. But I guess the tape makes them sturdy.
