Alex Da Corte’s Rubber Pencil Devil

This weekend, I visited Pittsburgh and had an opportunity to visit the Carnegie Museum of Art. The Museum had a plethora of installation-based works, but in particular, Alex Da Corte’s work captured my interest. Having seen his work in New York-the Karma exhibition, I think Alex Da Corte’s works are playful and in that sense…

Mind in the Machine by Ani Liu

While working on project 3, visualizing data reminded me of a research-based artist Ani Liu. Ani simultaneously incorporates art and science together, and the majority of her work involves studies and experiments in biology. I first came across her work through “The Botany of Desire”, in which Ani “designs a novel human-plant interaction that allows…

Coding Artist Casey Reas

Our next project, which is related to coding and processing, reminded me of artwork created by software and digital programming. I first saw them through images of printed coding art installed in a gallery. I was captivated by the idea of creating dream-like, surrealistic images through such a complicated process. I was searching through the Internet,…

Dia:Beacon and Andy Warhol’s Shadows

Contemplating on my past visits to art galleries in New York for the past two years,        Dia :Beacon is one of my favorite museums. It takes about two or three hours to get there from New York City, taking a train. Dia:Beacon is a huge archive of Contemporary Art; it has a…

Meat Love by Jan Svankmajer

The stop-motion animation that we watched on Monday, Bottle by Kirsten Lepore, reminded me of Meat Love, a short stop-motion animation film created by Jan Svankmajer in 1989. Svankmajer’s work also has an anthropomorphic aspect. It shows two pieces of meat dancing and falling in love before they encounter a catastrophic ending. Svankmajer’s Meat Love is surreal,…

Indigenous Woman by Martine Gutierrez

She expresses her questions about “how identity is formed, expressed, valued, and weighed as a woman, as a transwoman, as a latinx woman, as a woman of indigenous descent, as a…

The emergence of Instagram Worth Exhibitions-The Color Factory

I recently saw my friend who posted a picture of herself in the Color Factory, an interactive exhibition that opened in Soho, New York this summer. I’m honestly not a great fan of Instagram-worth exhibitions or made for Instagram exhibitions; however, if I were to put myself in an open-mindset, this could also be another…

The Sketchbook Project

A few weeks ago, I had the amazing opportunity to visit The Sketchbook Project, a private art library located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I visited my friend who goes to Pratt, and she thought I would be interested because I love illustrations. The Sketchbook Project is basically an archive of collaborative art projects. People purchase a…

Manimals (Animation) by Jihyeon Oh

I was scrolling down my Facebook feed and came across a minute and thirty-second video of Manimals, an animation series created by artist Jihyeon Oh. Jihyeon Oh is a South Korean artist who graduated with a Masters Degree in Moving Image at Konkuk University. Her animation series was selected for the World Festival of Animated Film…
