Contemplative Spring

Spring quarter was time for me to live with my ideas a bit. I did a lot of reading about addiction (Beautiful Boy by David Sheff -the father and Tweak by Nic Sheff, the addicted son) as well as about why otherwise rational people make irrational decisions (Sway written by two brothers whose name I can't think of right off). I mostly stayed out of the printmaking studios (though I missed making prints) and worked on mixed media pieces along with the video work.

This video still is a sketch for projecting onto paintings with my caterpillar imagery. I "kidnapped" a few of the many tent caterpillars that were on campus this Spring for a bug fix and to compare and contrast their behaviors with the silkworms. I loved capturing the moving images as they spun.
