Breathing

hkdolman:

Here is an attempt at the Art Assignment #14: Find Your Band (http://youtu.be/_jTqNfLmtHk?list=UUmQThz1OLYt8mb2PU540LOA).

As it turns out, my home is very, very quiet most of the time, so my “band” is my breath.

It’s not super exciting to listen to (and it is maybe a little bit creepy), but it is easy to participate in by breathing along and adding your own rhythms by hitting whatever you have on hand – a book, a table, your stomach…

Under the Influence?

We’re starting to review responses to Episode 11 - Peggy & Garry Noland - Under the Influence, so if you’d like to be considered for an upcoming highlights video, submit this week! 

And if you’ve started work on a rug for Episode 10 - Fritz Haeg - Make a Rug, keep on going! Fritz would like to give you a guys a WHOLE YEAR before we consider making a highlights video. So even if you thought you were done, wait until you wear through some more t-shirts and add to it throughout the year. 

Always remember that there are no hard and fast due dates for these. We routinely do highlights videos so we can share with everyone the good work you’ve done, but we’ll continue to reblog responses as they come in, and will consider making additional highlights videos for a particular assignment once enough time has passed.

My submission for Episode 14 of The Art Assignment, ‘Find Your Band’ (http://youtu.be/_jTqNfLmtHk). I used some of the sounds I could find in my studio to create a beat, then had an improvised jam over the top, based on the theme music from The Art Assignment.

Episode 14 Instructions:

1. Go through your day and notice all the sounds around you

2. Choose a group of those sounds to be your band

3. Join the band!

4. Record or document what happens and upload to your social media platform of choice with #theartassignment

5. Fame and glory (your work might be in a future episode)

This post has made me very happy.

I made this. I was inspired by the “Find Your Band” episode of the Art Assignment and the film Frank.

My mother and I are both into literature, but our book tastes tend to be pretty different. We used each others libraries to create portraits for the last Art Assignment. Her portrait of me is first, mine of her second.

The Art Assignment #3: Intimate, indispensable GIF
Tea is the base of my daily life. I drink tea every day, alone and with people. It calms me, it motivates me, it comforts me, it lightens me up. I drink tea when I’m sad, I drink tea when I’m happy, I drink tea when I’m angry. It’s the one thing I always return to, everyday.
(Also this was my first time of real GIF making)

My submission for the latest theartassignment! Poetry out of poetry: 

People Behave Like Ballads
Remembering This Delicious Day I Am the Darker Brother Touching the Fire Claiming the Spirit Within Evermore

The assignment was technically to go to someone else’s library and curate a portrait of them with their books. I figured since I’m new to the city of Boston I’d go to their collection, root through their poetry, and figure out what I can learn about the city that way. As with most poetry though, I think it came out as a reflection of myself more than a reflection of Boston. 
At least I’m starting to feel at home, both in the city and my own body.

My dad is a textile dealer so he has a lot of samples he does not use so i used them for #theartassignment. I picked up the assignment here: http://youtu.be/3GLmRJMTn6E. I only had this much of textile at home and do to a mistake in the earlier rows i managed to create these curled places. Makes a really nice head piece!
I have history with fiber things, i knit and do a bit of crochet, but I started this venture when i learned finger knitting, I am also a photographer and today the light in my room was terrible. (those are my eyes btw

Art Assignment #13- Sorted Books by Nina Katchadourian
2 self portraits, 5 years apart
I was really excited when I watching the sorted books episode of The Art Assignment because I was already familiar with Katchadourian’s work. The top photo I took 5 years ago for an assignment in the photography class I was taking. My photography teacher suggested I look at Katchadourian’s stacked book portraits since what I had done was sort of similar. So when I saw the episode I immediately thought back to the “portrait” I’d taken 5 years ago. I thought it would be cool to take a picture of my bookshelf now to see contrasting portraits of my current self and my past self. 
5 years ago:
2 Princesses of Barmarre- Gail Lavine
Winnie the Pooh- A. A. Milne
(highlighted) The House at Pooh Corner- A. A. Milne
Tales of Beedle the Bard- J.K. Rowling
Marley & Me- Josh Grogan
The Five People You Meet in Heaven- Mitch Albom
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone- J.K. Rowling
Current
The Hobbit- J.R.R Tolkein
Looking for Alaska- John Green
An Abundance of Katherines- John Green
(highlighted) Paper Towns- John Green
The Fault in Our Stars- John Green
American Gods- Neil Gaiman
A Little Princess- Francis Burnett Hodgson 
Peter Pan- J.M Barrie

I want to lead a roaming mob of interneters that prowl twitter, tumblr, YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram finding cultural occurrences, analyzing them, and over-reading them ad absurdum. Yet, this would not be done out of a sense of negative commentary, but rather from a manic desire to generate deeply…
