YouTube Video Montage

Interactive Website (Click Here)

Artist Summary:

The YouTube Video Montage, due to the wide range and selection of videos, was an interesting process. The composition represents the business and cluster of media and television.  The concept is based on flooding our minds with stimulus and determining the outcome. Varieties of videos were chosen to interpret the meaning throughout this piece, and are as follows:
(1)   The technology of beautification and image altering.
(2)   Charlie Sheen and how he is self-destructing in the eyes of the media.
(3)   The hypnotizing spiral showing the unknowingness of media and how it alters our      thoughts.
(4) (7) & (10) The images of people zoning out from television, showing how television wasn't       created to educate or enlighten you, but created to sell things and ideas. One video calls TV the drug of the nation.
(5) This video expresses the idea that there is always something better presenting itself to you,         urging you to reach invisible standards that are seen through the media and fashion world.
(8) A top-ten fashion count-down showing unrealistic
     fashions and body figures.
(9) This should be self-explanatory. This parody for the TV show Jersey Shore, is completely ridiculous with no point or meaning at all. Yet, consumers craves them, so the media delivers.
Overall, the montage, as a whole, is trying to broadcast a busy and fuzzy blur into what we hear and see.

  2. I really interesting. Only thing is that, looking at the project as a whole some of your choices of videos doesn't quite work together. But good job!

  3. Thank you, so I'm guessing you didn't read the artist summary? I went through and explained in detail the choices of videos and justifying my thoughts and selection of each video for this project, but thank you for the review. :)

Triptych Digital Montage

Artist Summary:
This piece was composed of one scanned image of my hand and a photocopy of Teen Vogue on a page about Emma Watson. The rest of the images were selected based on their intriguing qualities.It involved many different forms of digital art such as fashion, love, beauty, and emotion, as well as and creative interest in tattoos and surreal art. All three compositions were designed differently but show the same overall image intensity per each montage. Showing collective images will catch your attention and attract your eyes along the way.

Art Cart

Art in Public Places is a social art experiment that promotes a proactive way to get the community involved with participating in personal creativity and artistic culture. Starting with a cart stocked full of local artwork, blank canvases, and art materials, people are invited and welcomed to create their own artwork in exchange for art in the cart. This creates a continuous flow of new artwork being created and donated back to the cart in exchange for an art piece created by another participant. This project was a positive and successful way of spreading the wonderful creativity we all have to share.

Nature Gallery

Set up a gallery in Wingfiled Park. The gallery hopes the viewer, when looking through the frames, will consider the questions What is Nature? and the conflict of how “man-made” can a thing be before it is no longer nature. Nature? Every single frame offers the viewer the opportunity to decide what is nature and what isn’t. These picture frames are specifically placed in hopes to capture the beautiful nature of Wingfield Park, and yet man-made objects intrude from all directions. The frames hold within them trees, water, earth, rocks, as well as concrete, construction, metal, and brick. Does the angle at which you stand change your view? Or can you look through the frame from the completely opposite direction? Either way you are offered the choice. Is what you see truly nature?
