Attractive Yet Overstimulating.

This documentary will become a book, and as overwhelming of a task as that seems currently, I know it will be well worth it in the end.  With this in mind I had decided to scan in some of my dresses creating repetitive patterns for use inside of my covers and throughout the books pages to break up my imagery …

I See Myself.

I have begun to realize that in this documentary I have become a collector of moments in time that remind me of memories from my past.  Even in the imagery I didn't take myself, I see myself.  This confirms that there is, to some degree, a common experience we females share growing up as middle …

Bend Over.

It has been quite some time since I made a collage: tonight that all changed.  This is the disgusting masterpiece I wound up with, inspired by some old photos I found of myself where I strongly resemble a Playboy Bunny.  Eww.

Nesting.

This morning I woke up, looked across the room at my clothes hamper, and felt the need to nest.  I gathered the cloth from the basket and created a space in which I could lay.  Then I snapped a picture.  Something about the action of gathering materials from my surroundings, creating a temporary sculpture, placing myself within …

Making Babies.

My absence has not been due to a lack of productivity on my end, but in fact quite the opposite.  I feel as if there has been so much on my plate that I don't even know how to begin to share any of it.  I will be spending much of my time in the …

Milk and Eggs.

This past week has been an incredibly productive one for me in terms of art making. I have put in countless hours (with the wonderful assistance/company of my mother) working on the presentation for my prints soaked in milk and eggs. Although the project is not quite finished and the pieces have yet to be …

Final Tests.

Here are the finished products of my four 4x5 test prints.  In the end I let them soak a total of four days, until the sun evaporated all of the milk.  I am captivated by the variations of texture on each and am pleasantly surprised by the results.  They are cracked and eroded: the original …

Whole Milk.

Currently I have four 4x5 test prints soaking in whole milk in my back yard.  I am experimenting on a smaller scale with my lilac images before throwing the full size prints in.  For those of you who haven't been following this project, I am returning to themes of infertility and the unknown.  So far so good; the …

Lilacs and Milk.

Once again I'm thinking about issues of fertility/wondering if I'll be able to have children.  I know that these are worries that can be saved for a later date, but they are always at the back of my mind.  I've been toying with the idea of soaking prints in milk and letting the liquid corrode the …

Every Room.

I was feeling productive tonight and decided to just make something for me (a sup rising lack of weekend homework has made this possible).  Anyways, I have had these pullouts from a magazine pullout for quite some time now and was just never quite sure how to use them.  I am super happy with how …
