Graduation!

A quick update that for now, UCSC is behind me. Thanks to my Mom for taking this rad photo by the Porter squiggle: And also, this new Sigur Ros track from their new album, Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust, somehow sums up the past few days:

open studios

Yesterday was open studios here at UCSC, meaning that as as Art major, I’m just about done with this quarter. Rock. I’ve been working on two big projects – the photo series that I’ve already posted images from, and a computer-art piece that’s slightly hard to explain. I made a huge digital frame, hooked it…
