Share: Installed

Below are a few images of my Thesis exhibition Share.  Some are before the exhibition, and others are the remains after ArtWalk.  The last few reveal how intense the scene was when people frantically searched for their own trading cards and those of their friends.  If I can ever get through the crowd to tidy up the display, I hope to get a few images of how the display looks when clean and organized.  What a success!

Share Video Documentation

Share, 2012 compiles the public online identities of the graduating class of 2012 at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). Collectivity, the multiple, bulk, authenticity, and privacy are all notions explored in Share within a social media context. This video documents the memorabilia vendor-like display of this piece.  You can also view Share in HD on Vimeo and Youtube.

Exhibition Drop-Off Tomorrow!

Wow.  I am in shock that tomorrow is the day to drop off work to be installed for the 2012 Commencement Show.  Somehow what always seemed so far away, is suddenly right in my face.  Everything is beginning to seem a little less surreal, finally.  

I am in a really good place right now, extremely hopeful on the future, and I am looking forward to the next step.  Graduation is in 8 days, and this week in between now and then will be busier than I know, considering I have to prepare and set up for the exhibition, have a thesis gallery talk, participate in ArtWalk, and attend a few meetings to wrap up everything.  After the 14th I hope to focus on packing, moving out of my apartment, and preparing to venture to my new opportunity that is still a blur.  Of course, I do not want to entirely reveal where I am in the job search process on this public blog since it is very much a waiting game.  However, once something is final, I'll be sure to post!
