I must admit that with all the recent stuff I forgot about SK. That is until I met KiltedLunatic in person here in Nashville.
So I'm studying at Vanderbilt for the semester and taking a kickass multimedia sculpture class. Our first project was the typical build a chair out of cardboard and glue that holds your weight. It had to be from a historically recognizable period in art history. I made an egyptian throne. It's huge. And pretty fucking comfortable. Good thing, since I lost all my furniture in the storm. You can see the process but not the finished product (yet) here: http://www.deviantart.com/view/24232797/
Our current project is "Personal Baggage." We have to make something wearable/carryable that represents metaphorically through design, concept, and materials our own personal baggage. I'm making "The Self-Start Anxiety Kit." It is made of aluminum, screws, rivets, and electrical supplies. It will consist of a head piece wired to a waist/hip piece wired to a wrist piece plus a remote control box (which is becoming the bane of my existence) and an instruction booklet. I've made the waist/hip piece and fuck yes I'm wearing it to the club! It's a very tight bondage corsety thing all decoratively riveted and a little weathered. It closes with hasps. The control box has on off switches for each of the units as well as knobs to control the intensity of whatever I decide to call each piece. All that information will be etched on and explained in the instruction manual.
I've also been playing more with PhotoShop and not really getting anywhere impressive, but it's fun. I'm taking a non-credit printmaking class that I'm not really suceeding in...I think I'm more of a 3D person. Plus, what can you get done in two hours a week? Nothing.
No modeling since I've been here but I have a camera now. I have to figure out how to use it...I've never used a digital camera before. I got a feature on Michelle7-erotica.com for my rope bondage series with Images by Gordon....pretty prestigious shit. Of course, last time I checked only the photographer got credit, which is just a little frustrating.
I've seen a lot of dead things lately. I managed to scoop up a bird before it decayed or was feasted upon; you can see him on my deviant art page: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/24006948/. I saw a crow/raven/something hit by a truck on the highway. It siezed for a while...I didn't see it die, but I saw it's murder checking him out. I wonder if they eat their own.
On that note, goodbye for now.
