I realize that I haven’t posted much of what I’ve done in my MFA work here at Waterloo.  Here is a project I started for my elective, Hybrid Digital Media.  (If you’re interested, I kept a class blog.)

This is called 3:15 AM.

Statement:

As a lone woman in this day and age, there are some very real or possibly imagined fears that we have to deal with in our daily lives. Something as simple as getting yourself home after a night out with friends presents potentially dangerous situations. Every woman has had instances like this- ominous, hyper-real situations, where you aren’t sure if the threat is real, something you have imagined, or a direct result of the fear-filled media barrage of terrible things that happen in the world, which we are now subjected to on a constant basis.

As the people I went to high school with are posting their children’s first days of school, I’ll post this photo of my first official day of classes of my MFA.

And a few pictures of my studio.  I am curious to see how it changes over the next two years.

My first class today was Hybrid Digital Media.  As part of the class, I will be keeping another blog, a digital sketchbook, to keep track of research, ideas, and projects I am working on.  If you’re interested, you can check it out here.
