Week 12_Mahsa Soroudi of Iran

  Well as a last week’s artist of the week I got completely surprised because she was from my country. The interview was completely awesome and I think both Professor Glenn and Mahsa Soroudi did a perfect job. Though I will try my best not to talk about politics, in a country where both me…

Week 11_ Fiber Art

    This activity taught me a huge lesson, and the lesson is, I am just terrible at creating artistic things. Because I couldn’t find fiber close to my house I used an old women’s shirt to create my wall hanging. At first I thought I had this under control but as soon as I…

Week 11_ Avatar

  This week’s artist of the week made me more interested about my own major. From the class discussion I saw how a lot of classmates thought Avatars were part of art, and in reverse some thought they have no place in art category. In my opinion the avatars themselves could not be part of…

Week 10_Art Care Package

This week’s activity was kind of hard for me. I decide to send an Art Care Package to my sister who I truly love. My sister loves a lot of house accessories, so I decide to do my ACT on house accessories. For this project I used a lot of magazines to find great house…

Week 10_Joseph Delappe

  I can say this week’s artist interest me the most compared to others we have done research on. Unlike other artist, Joseph DeLappe works is pretty unique. With the use of technology, he creates cool realities that could have meaning in future. 2 of his works that I enjoy are the drone connected to…

Week 9_Tattoo

  As a kid I always loved tattoos and I always wanted to get one. Due to high restrictions in Iran about tattoos and stuff related to this, plus with the disagreement of my parents, I could never get one. This week’s artists got me interested because tattoos always get me interested. While doing my…

The ingredients are white rice, sugar, saffron, rosewater, butter, silvered almonds and hot water. This is a famous desert in…

Week 8_ Philip-Lorca diCorcia

Philip-Lorca diCorcia is one of the greatest photographers in 20th century. His work is completely admirable. Comparing his work to others makes me think he is unique. Most of his work includes random people in random settings. Though not many find this interesting, I think it’s a pretty cool idea. One thing I understand from…

Week 8_Street Photography​

My main photography topic was love. I didn’t think I would take random pictures that would actually connect to each other. The first image that I got was when 2 old couples were looking at the beach. I thought this was a lovely picture because it shows the relationship these two people had for each…

Week 7_ Hammer Museum

This week’s activity was a pretty chill activity. Since the hammer Museum was the closest museum to my house I decide to go there. It was surprising for me to know there was an art museum close to my house that I didn’t even notice. While I was looking at different pieces of art two…

Week 7_ Janet Cardiff and George Bures

  This week’s artist was an interesting artist. Both Janet Cardiff and her spouse George Bures Miller have a lot of talent in music and sound. While other artist shows us the beauty of drawing, painting and photography; Janet does the same thing but with music and sound. The 40-part motet project that Janet hosted…
