Fast, Cheap, and Out of Control
An exploration of perception, anthropomorphization, and how we perceive our own existence. After watching the film Fast, Cheap, and Out of Control, students were to draw a theme from the film and present it. The most poignant aspect of the film for me was how characters anthropomorphized the animals in their lives, desperately trying to see logic and reason in another being. To contest that, I created an installation in one of the hallways that projected the film on a thin fabric, while simultaneously projecting a live feed of people passing by onto the same image. While watching the film, viewers were confronted with their own image.
Working with Elie Andersen, Mina Park, Iñigo Lopez Vasquez, Amrit Muzumder, and Alice Taranto, we were assigned to "create a spectacle." We arrived to the idea of self spectacle, which inhabited two main points: being presented with yourself when you are not expecting it, and being presented with a view of yourself that you are not expecting/not familiar with. We created a small box with a lit for viewers to look into. Meanwhile, a member of our group secretly filmed them and a live feed was sent to the screen inside the box. Both the participant and the 'voyeur' moved around, creating an experience in which the participant was confronted with themselves as a spectacle.
Oh Happy Day
"Oh Happy Day" is a book of cocktails I created to honor my grandmother who loved cocktails above most things aside from chocolate. The recipes are passed down within my family and presented in an easy to-read format. Sections are divided by alcohol type and organized by difficulty—easier recipes begin on the left, and complex recipes follow to the right.
Series of postage stamps on the theme of mathematics entitled 'Mathematica.' Using the system for geometric constructions of important rectangles, this series explores mathematic constructions as blueprints for the world around us. This series includes the hemidiagon, Root 2 Rectangle, Root 3 Rectangle, and the Golden Rectangle. It includes a commemorative package for collectors as well as its cancellation stamp.
The commemorative package and proposed re-design reads as follows: "'Mathematica hopes to celebrate geometric constructions of important rectangles around us. Using a blueprint schema, 'Mathematica' hopes to emphasize the construciton of these gemoetric shapes and even serve as inspiration to look at the quotidienne world and how these constructions define all spaces. We hope you enjoy this commemorative package of an historic celebration."
