rockpool candy.

there is the realisation that this week will probably be a fun week seeing we have two field trips out, and this morning’s 2D lesson started at 12 and ended at 1. that is amazing. liyana was suggesting a movie but i couldn’t go since there is still marketing tutorial in the afternoon.

anyway. ‘big highlight’ of the day was when we submitted our portfolios for viscomm selection which would eventually seal our fates. (ok, correction: will eventually lead us to our majors) right. there after they went for their movie and i went for marketing. i actually seem to absorb more in today’s lesson. that is a good thing. πŸ˜€

researching stuff for 3D concept. and i came across this interesting blog of this lady who loves working with yarn and creating artistic interventions in nature…

(leaf stencils->this is probably not good for the plant but it is pretty!)

and there is yarn sculptures:

when everyone is fretting over portfolio submission i am blogging. hmm.
(and yes, you heard right. i need to compile and submit another portfolio as viscom is too oversubscribed. too much for them to take anyway.)

so yes, i have everyone who applied cursing and swearing and putting in a lot of hard work. steve is even making a proper folder for his works. or is everybody and i am the only one not doing something fancy and extra to get my name on the VC-list? maybe i should be more concerned about it?
I think everything here has tried to challenged and questioned us time and time again what is it we really want. and how much do you want it- you’ve got to work hard for it. and maybe it is training us for the real world which works the same way.

this post seems to sound quite depressing. aye, cheer up everyone, CNY holidays are coming real soon!

death of a cam.

yesterday was another thurs. meaning that i should have been very happy since it marks the end of another school week.
but i wasn’t entirely happy. my camera was spoilt. yea. apparently it couldn’t take the glare of laser light effects at concerts which perplexes me. well…

– 3D- the class which requires in-studio work and never doles out hw, gave me extra work to add on to my growing weekend to-do-list.

– marketing lecture was very empty, seems like people are starting to skip them.

bye,bye camera. thank you for serving me well… 😦

i had a relatively relaxed day today. firstly there was 4D where Michael shared many installation works with us. it is exciting to know that you have seen some of the works as the experience being there is very different from looking at photos or videos. makes me feel all geared up for museum hopping- which we are going to be doing next wed! πŸ˜€ happy! and after that we got in our groups to create our own installations. lovely stuff. every group has a different idea so it was nice to see the variety.

then there was also that baby doll which liyana’s group brought that just kept ‘crying’. oh it was hilarious how interactive the doll is made you have to sing/clap/diaper change/rock/… to make it stop crying. we were watching jerome failed attempts at ‘being a father’. hahahaha! but liz is right, the doll is the kind of doll that can look pretty scary.

WAH lecture on more baroque art followed. and then marketing discussion and korean food for dinner with jia yin and lydia! yummy!

I was watching this video and it is nicely filmed and edited. simple concept.

Fifty People, One Question | Short Film

everyone has a different answer, it is personal. yet you also hear some of the common answers like ‘world peace’ or ‘to be a millionaire’… it is nice to listen to other people’s answer and wonder each and everybody’s personal story. πŸ˜€

I do not know what i would say maybe i will be inclined to say something like that "i have no work to rush." but someone answered:

"i wish i had begun the day off with a wish. maybe i’ll wish forο»Ώ that tomorrow"

that is lovely. start each day with a small goal?

Before the end of the day what would you wish to happen?

the moment.

Cleo was saying today that Baroque art is about capturing that moment in a work. the moment when somebody calls out to the ‘girl with the pearl earring’, the moment when Saul is hit by the divine light in ‘Conversion on the way to Damascus", the moment when Levi decides to follow Jesus in "the Calling of St. Matthew".

if that is the case, i wish to capture the moment now. the feeling of relief when WAH presentation is over, the relief that i managed to complete my Fdn Drawing in time for today’s lesson. yeps. and knowing that i won’t feel this for long when the submission of 2D assignment 1 closes in and when marketing presentation 1 creep up. but just let me enjoy this moment first.

here’s a picture to brighten up this post.

took this at Terminal 1 of Changi Airport. i love that place… makes me feel happy. hahahaha!

ok, ok, actually i wanted to post my colour picture of Taiwan’s Jiu Fen which i did last night for Fdn Drawing. took a long time!

mental switch.

lots to do today night so i shall make this fast.

2D in the morning. showed karen my not-so-far progress but she seemed okay as long as i completed everything by next week.

then discussed and practiced WAH presentation for tmr.

next rushed to marketing tutorial only to realise that it is difficult for my brain to tune to marketing mode.

same problem at dinner when we were doing the touch-ups for WAH. I have a problem switching back to art history mode from marketing.

now to complete my colour drawing assignment for tmr. ah~!
