My "Self Start Anxiety Kit" was a hit, at least with Michael Aurbach, which is all that matters (I do admire him so...go look: http://www.vanderbilt.edu/AnS/finearts/aurbach/ ) At the critique he said things like, "you've really hit on a gold mine", "you could get 10 years of work off of this theme", etc. That meant something coming from him because, as I said, I admire him and his work and his education.
The next project's parameters: plaster, and the concept of dessication (the concept was chosen by lottery).
In other news, I took some great pictures of Vanderbilt's beautiful campus (it's a national arboretum, did you know?) with its fall leaves and then my camera mysteriously stopped working. Research has proven it to be a common thing with this camera, officially making it a piece of shit. I didn't buy it, it was my parents' and they gave it to me thinking they'd get another down the road (post-Katrina guilt gift). It's only taken 1026 pictures...
So now I can't take pictures of my sculptures, or finish the project by making a user's manual. Mother fucker.
