This is a little…. gross, but definitely interesting. It’ll be cool to see where this goes…!
Last week, we exhibited The Jacquard Show, in Gallery 371. I don’t think I’ve posted a picture of the finished work from the Jacquard workshop with Louise Lemieux Bérubé, , but I do know I’ve posted about A Horse in the Living Room.
Read my classmate, Melissa Wong’s post about it on her blog.
Here’s a link to images from the show, from Mackenzie Frere.

Here’s what I’m thinking for my graduation tattoo. I currently don’t have any tattoos, and was thinking that it may be a good right of passage for graduating from ACAD. There are 5 sewing pins, signifying my major of Fibre, and my five years here at ACAD. They are poking into me, as the fibre department and my time here are a important part of what makes me who I am. The colors represent my love of color, and the energy and diversity of my experience here- making some good friends, learning a lot, and having a ton of fun! It’s been an amazing five years!

Thanks for watching!!
That idea led into Foraminifera, which I was initially disappointed with. It didn’t seem to have any life or personality, although it did have lots of arms. It seemed flat, and, while colourful and an interesting shape, it seemed distinctly an object.
But then I started to spend some time with it and play with it. I discovered that, by moving the arms around and posing it, it could have a lot more animation.
I realized that presentation might very well be everything, and the animation of my objects depends very much on how they are presented. I wonder if I made the same piece, but maybe a different size and/or colour, and presented them differently, would they be recognized as the same form?
Part Four still to come.
With Pteropod, (also known as “PMS”), I think I managed to achieve what I’ve been going for in creating “life” with the Morphoids. It has two long, curling appendages, and I thought that was the key to animating them, giving them arms to move, and therefore, keeping them “animal”.
Interestingly, Pteropod seems even more animated when interacting with a human. There seems to be more of a relationship (in some cases, even a friendship) between the two participants.
Part Three: Foraminifera is next!This work seems much more versatile, and so documentation seems to be everything.
