Finding Art

Happy midweek, everyone. It’s been a long while since my last update. I’ve been really busy (what’s new?) rehearsing for our grad show –  MEMORABILIA, or the Magic Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two.

“Life without memory is no life at all. Our memory is our coherence, our reason, our feeling, even our action. Without it we are nothing.” Luis Bunuel

 

Rehearsals have been getting really fun and interesting, though really mind-warping and brain-messing at times, but I’m loving it! It’s going to be running from Mon 1 Apr – Thur 4 Apr 2013, so be there!

Other than that, I’ve also completed the first draft of my thesis, which was a very painful process. I’ve not read so much non-fiction in my life. But along the way I also discovered so many interesting reads, so as painful as the process was… You know. Life experience.

This was the poster/flyer design for the piece I did as part of my research. My thesis explores the relation between smell and memory making, and smell in the theatre. I got my first draft  back and it needs loads of reworking, but I’m meeting my supervisor on Friday to chat about that.

It’s a countdown of three weeks to show, and less than two months until we graduate. This week, Jean-Guy Lecat came to view our design. He’s so awesome and it’s really all “WHAT’S GOING ON IN HIS MIND HE’S A GENIUS” and he’s so brillant. Although he tore our design apart (not literally) there was so much truth. Got so re-inspired when he was having Q&A. He’s viewing composition class tomorrow and aaah… So nervous. Haha.

If you’ve been following me on Twitter/Instagram, you’d already know that the Level 3 Acting class (i.e. my class) did the lobby for the Level 2’s performance of The Winter’s Tale. We taped a string installation, cut up some CDS up, and stuffed fairylights into wine bottles and suspended them.

TADAH!!!!!!!! I have a lot more photos I really should edit.

Yep.

I also discovered the amazing world of preset/premade/downloadable photoshop curves and actions! Dug up an old photo of Echo and edited it:

 

Alright, I really should update a lot more. I promise to try.

This is King Lear and the day we suspended 300 needles from thread from a ceiling. We then used strobe lights of two speeds to light the needles. It really does look better in real life. It’s also by far my favourite design. This was by Aisyah, Sherri, Dex and myself.

This is in a rehearsal space and the design for our composition class for Death of a Salesman.  I don’t know how I feel about it yet, but naked light bulbs being suspended – always cool. This was by Gokul, Aisyah, Dex, Sherri, Wendy.

Alright, I’ll update again soon.

My artist also hates me now. I took her out on one date and never called her again. I’m a terrible person. 😦
