this week i haven’t made any new art, but i have been organizing, having work photographed, toning photos, and writing and re-writing narratives and artist statements. on a more domestic front i have been baking bread, making soup, making yogurt and knitting. i also ordered a fancy new drafting chair so i don’t cripple myself.
luckily for me, my friend charlie is a fantastic photographer, has access to nice lights, and offered to take photos for me. so i spent a pleasant afternoon at his studio in ann arbor taking pictures of work. there was a lot of painters tape involved, as it is my favorite on the spot hanging stuff up tool. the photos came out really nice and we even played around a bit with the lighting by shimming the cuts off the wall by about an inch. they almost make your eyes sore, but look really cool. here is a photo of ‘knitting’ flat:
and this is the same image with directed lighting:
i haven’t taken a photo of the current hat i am knitting yet, as it still looks like a wooly blog. but i think we may have an overload of hats now. this week i am off to buy wool for my sweater!! i am very excited about that. check out more creative spaces over here.
