1. For this assignment i have constructed one interactive sculpture, and two stationary sculptures. 

    For Figure, (LEFT) the viewer will be asked to view into the mirror set up while holding the Figure paper. The viewer will see through the word figure on the page, see through to the mirror to see themselves yet agin through the word figure a second time. This is an interactive commentary on the abstract of the word figure, how that is who we are and what we represent as people. 

    For House, (TOP RIGHT) I have recreated the interior door and wall of Bilbo Baggins Bag End from the series The Lord of the Rings, as well as from The Hobbit. I choose specifically this type of house, because of my love of the series and my desire to live in a ‘hobbit hole’.

    For Shadowbox, (BOTTOM RIGHT) I have chosen to do a jungle landscape. Angles and negative space were the main principles I manipulated for this project. 

    Below will be in progress photos:

  2. For this assignment I am going to choose the art styles, Art Nouveau and Gothic. 

    For the Art Nouveau time period I have chosen a piece from famous artist Alphonse Mucha, alongside pieces of architecture to gain a fuller understanding of the design involved with that era.

  3. A Few of My Favorite Things. 
Rosie the Riveter Mug: I have had this Tervis mug for a little over two years and it is my most used, most loved, and most dirty out of all of my dishes. It is odd to see me without it. 
Bible: I find myself to be a deeply religious person, Christianity to be precise. This bible in particular is my first ‘grown up’ bible. My most personal. 
Glasses: My current prescription. I can’t live without them.
Blue lIke Jazz, Donald Miller: A book I read over the summer, I found that it had a lot of wisdom I needed. 
Sharpie and Ink Pen: My most used artist tool. 
iPhone: As much as I find myself distracted by this piece of technology, I have had it for over three years and it has been through the hell I have put it though and still comes back.
