  • Color time Two: research

    April 5, 2020 by

    James Turrell James Turrell’s work is based strongly in location, light, and color. He uses these three factors to completely transform a space and give places a sort of ethereal or other worldly feel. The colors he uses play a huge roll in how he does this, for instance in pieces such as this: he… Read more

    30 forms of public communication found on AU campus. Numbers that are crossed out just represent forms I didn’t think I could use for my performance piece.

  • Flag Proposal

    February 23, 2020 by

    Pictured is the very beginning of the infamous Alfred Bean Flag. Our three original designs were stupid. They included a reappearance of the yellow sun and a flag on a flag on a flag on a flag on a flag. However genius occasionally comes from stupid places. Case in point: the very first depiction of… Read more

  • Group symbol designs

    Each of our symbols represent one simple thing we both have in common. The embroidered yellow sun and blue K represent that both our favorite colors are yellow, and both out names start with K. The two painted Virgo symbols represent that we are both Virgos. The peach represents both of our favorite stone fruits.… Read more

    February 23, 2020 by

    For this project we focused on a narrative surrounding the idea of erasing gendered bathrooms on the Alfred campus. This particular bathroom is located in Harder Hall, and is one of the only bathroom signs in the building that hasn’t already been altered in a similar way. Symbols, when used in this way, can be… Read more

Another important aspect of the… Read more

  • The Story of the Space

    November 26, 2019 by

    Hello! So the deal in the beginning with our book was for Tyler and Danny to storyboard and write, and I would illustrate the whole thing. Then immediately after I remembered that I also had other classes to worry about and had to chicken out, so we split up the work more evenly. I sketched… Read more

  • Installation Proposal

    November 5, 2019 by

    Hello to the professors reading this blog, here’s what I’ve got to say about my proposal. First of all, I swear it (probably) wont be a fire hazard this go around. Having said that, one of the main things we discussed was hanging cranes, an element pulled from my daily practice, and leaves, an element… Read more

  • Daily Practice 2

    November 4, 2019 by

    This week I focused mainly on giving cranes to strangers, so sorry in advance for the lack of pictures.

  • Daily Practice 1

    October 28, 2019 by

    I’ll get right into it. For my daily practice I chose to make and give away origami cranes. This started off as a challenge because I had never made paper cranes before and had no idea how much effort they require. However, luckily, it wasn’t too hard to pick up, i made 4 or 5… Read more
