Art assignment #3: An intimate, Indispensable GIF
I looked through my gif tag on this blog and the art blog and I realized how many of my gifs are selfies or drawn self-portraits.*  Self-portraits are an essential act for me, something I’ve been doing forever. Selfies (as photos) are a new fad, but they fit really easily with the rest of my art. Self-portraits deal with narcissism and insecurity, which i feel are big issues for me as an artist.  Why do i spend this much time on art?, who am i helping? and what does the world really look like? Making art feels selfish sometimes, and when trying to understand what the world looks like, my face seems like a good place to start.*1 2 3 4 5 (there’s probably others)

This is my gif for the art assignment. I couldn’t live without my eyes. I need them to observe the world and its beauty. Also I need them to watch Netflix and read books.

Two things I find indespensable are my hands and my eyes, since a lot of things I do for fun and relaxation are connected to how I perceive world and what can I do with it. Aaand I feel uneasy when my hands are no moving and doing something.
Art assignment gave me possibility to do some animation which I wanted to try for some time but I was too lazy to start anything, so thanks :D
I have no idea if this gif works or not.

It works!

Finally put this little thing that I’ve had in my head together. This is my submission for Art Assignment 3, which you can check out right here, For those not familiar, the task was to create a gif of something indispensable and intimate to you. What I think of as indispensable to me is my ability to observe, which I portray here with this one-eyed little guy. I’ll have more about this assignment and how I went about doing it in a vlog I’m still in the process finishing, so I’ll update this post later with a link to that. 

Really love this one.

I had no idea my poor little .gif had to be so small and optimized. 
I couldn’t think of anything indispensable until today, when I realized how much I value the ability to rip out a day or a week and have a totally fresh start, no matter how many times you need to do that. 

It’s small, but it’s good!

This is my gif for the Art Assignment #3: Intimate, Indispensable GIF - Odin Odutola. I captured these images with my Canon AE-1 35mm film camera. I wanted the pictures with my glasses off to be out of focus to simulate my nearsightedness. My glasses are my life. I am essentially blind without my contacts or glasses. Because I was using a film camera, it was very difficult to take the pictures that are actually in focus. The out of focus ones were easy. I had to make sure I was the same distance from the camera as my test object was. I used my camera’s built in timer and took all of these in one try. Of course I didn’t know how they turned out until I developed the film. Satisfied, I tried to make a gif on my own but it always ended up being too large for tumblr to use. So I used gickr.com and it worked wonderfully.

Art Assignment #5: Quiet Place
I went on a walk with my dog on Saturday Pond up in Otisfield, Maine.  This is a place where I’ve always found an immense amount of peace because all you can hear are chirping bird and the sound of your own breathing.  It’s an easy place to think and be apart from constant societal pull.  The greatest part of talking walks by the pond is when the sunsets bleeds over the mountains and the evergreen trees.
This art assignment made me step away from my stressors and find my happy place.  Thank:) theartassignment

Art Assignment: Quietest place
This weekend is Open House for accepted students at my college, so naturally the campus has been really crowded and crazy. I thought it would be a great time to do the art assignment
Three of my friends and I walked down to the river and felt it get quieter and quieter. Eventually we lay down on the dock and enjoyed the sunshine. It was relaxing and wonderful (even if I did get splinters)

I’ve been wanting to do an Art Assignment for awhile now but haven’t had the chance to really get into one project—but I think this latest one, quietest place, is all about realizing opportunities to find and make something special.
I actually wasn’t thinking about the assignment at all today as I walked around campus. But as soon as I stepped into a rather unused stairwell at the far side of the business school, it just sort of hit me: this was the quietest place.
I didn’t really want to post this at first. I kept thinking, “this does not matter” and “this is unimportant”. But then I realized that not every moment that you decide to stop and take in the world has to be some dramatic, sweeping, life-altering realization. In fact, maybe it’s the overly mundaneness of a sterile stairwell that makes this whole thing beautiful. No, I am not going to remember and look back on the moment I stood in a stairwell for five minutes and watched and listened to the world go by me with complete fascination—I’ll probably forget I even stopped. But the whole point of Quietest Place I feel is to remind yourself that little moments can help you learn more about the world, maybe not in any sort of grand, amazing way, but in the same way you need to subconsciously remember to keep breathing. Whether you realize it or not, you need it to keep going.

From the photograph, its hard to see how this room felt. This is the special exhibition at the Art Institute: Nilima Sheikh: Each Night Put Kashmir in Your Dreams. I’m only showing the backs of the banners, because those are where the literary poems are. People are often willing to skip over the hot mess of colors and squares on the front of the banners because they’re just pictures, just as its easy to pass a Renoir without a second glance. But once they get to the words, they stop talking. They read the poems on the back and come to a dead halt because in the first line of every single one of those quotations, you can hear the echos of people across the world. The literature is incredibly complicated and poetic, just like the quilted art in the front. Now, its so blatantly obvious that anyone with an ounce of respect becomes silent. You can here nothing but the faint echos of people coming in from far entrance, and then you hear the chants, the crying, the laughter of the Kashmir people. And this where I found the quietest place at the Art Institute of Chicago.
