I was looking at the syllabus and brainstorming about the "stacked" piece. I found this stacked container and really liked it because of the design and movement of the piece. I enjoy the abstract qualities within this container.

I like making skull. While browsing the internet for some skull ceramic, I stumbled upon this blog http://tzuza.wordpress.com/tag/clay/ . This guy Shiraz Yanir made a very good skull. I really admire his work.
This is the skull he made which is very detail and nearly similar to the real skull.
Most of Meredith Dittmar's sculptures are composed in 3D with strange figures and animals in surreal settings. Dittmar's human-animal-plant-energy amalgams contain threads of common elements and colors to express deep levels of union across themes of biology, technology, and consciousness . Her characters are frequently involved in quiet expressive moments, or lounge facing their audience so they can share their inner space.
Vivian Maier is the photographer I mentioned in my last post. I watched a segment about her on 60 minutes, and it was really cool to hear about her story. She was a street photographer in New York and Chicago and not a lot of people knew about her until recently. A man who was looking through old rolls of film for some job he had to do, and came across all of Maier's film at an auction. He decided to buy all of them for a small price of $200, and was shocked to find out who this photographer really was. Ever since then he has been archiving all of her photos and the original prints sell for thousands of dollars. They are all posted in portfolio's on the website: http://www.vivianmaier.com. Check it out and watch the small video, it's a really cool story.

I've always loved photography, but lately I've been a lot more active in recent news. I just completed a lithography project based off of a Vivian Maier Self Portrait. I googled more about famous self portraits for an inspiration for my next litho and came across a really cool story. This woman is trying to make the world's largest self portrait. The camera is unbelievably complex and it was a really cool story to read about. Check out the link:
