In case anyone wanted to see my thesis video outside of the gallery. This video was compiled from ripped youtube videos, and was accompanied by 15 photographs that I gathered from Apple Store display computers (which I will post later). Make sure you turn the sound up real loud to get the full effect.
Spider-Man is going to be at the UMBC Alumni Career Week event. #spriderman #umbc #careerweek (at Career Services Center)
Part two of my time lapse thesis documentation (you can watch #1 here).
Day one of the install is down, and I got a ton done. 10 of the 15 photos are hung, and the projector/media player is all set up, just gotta finess it a bit tomorrow. THINGS ARE GOING GREAT I’M JUST REAL TIRED AND I MISS MY FRIENDS.
Yesterday was a really labor intensive thesis day. 5 hours of dry mounting photographs. I’m glad it’s over, but there’s still so much to do. Anyway, here are those 5 hours in under 2 minutes. Feel free to discuss how disheveled and upset I look.
How do you like UMBC?
This has been sitting in my in box for a few days now, and for that I’m sorry. It’s been hard to write an answer to this without sounding insincere or overly sincere. UMBC and I have a long history, longer than the one with my husband, and most of my friends (we’ll get to that).
I started at UMBC as a freshman in Fall 2005, and this Spring 2013 I will graduate with my Masters in Fine Arts in Imaging and Digital Art. Academically, like most kids right out of high school, I floundered the first year and a half, simply because I didn’t know who I was as a person or as an artist. It was at that time that I decided to get a part time job at commonvision.
Initially, it was a way to make some extra money and to get out of my dorm room. It quickly became a place full of friends, support (thank god for Laura Schraven), and creativity. Literally all of my best friends (I’m looking at you Willie, Gina, Renny, Dann, Adam, Emily, Jenna, Stefanie, Etc.) can be linked back to the commons and commonvision, and without it I would have never met my better half. I felt like I had found a place where I was able to grow as an artist (I still feel this way), but mostly as a human.
As my last day at UMBC is quickly approaching (MAY 17TH!) I’m feeling a lot of nostalgia. I’m realizing that without this place, I would probably be just fine, but that I wouldn’t be as strong. I think that if my 19 year old self met me today, she would be shocked at how confident, determined, and self sufficient I am. A lot of this was trial and error, fucking up a lot and learning along the way, but I couldn’t have done it without all of the UMBC people in my life who are still helping me today.
So, to answer your question, I’m pretty into it.
we did it!
AND HERE IT IS! A gif of me dumping a huge bowl of free condoms on my head. Thank you, and goodnight.
