I know I haven't updated in a while. I have been very very busy with my 'Research Through Practice' course--a theoretical inquiry about the relevance of research in the world of art/craft/design etc etc. I am also working on a couple of pieces that are most likely becoming brooches, which will hopefully evoke the typical Swedish interior landscape, or, to use a more simple word, "floors". Ah yes, language and the games it can play...but doesn't "interior landscape" sound more elegant? Elegant, hopefully like the brooches will be eventually. I am also working on/have already made some/ pieces that are sound based. I have been working with a few people, most notably Jan Carleklev, who is in the "experience design" masters program here. He is an electronic music composer, sound-collector, and generally amazing person. I hope that we can continue to work together and teach each other more about our areas of specialty, so that we can later begin to combine them more and more. One of the goals I have this year is to overcome my techno-phobia, so I am in the middle of learning, little by little, how to take apart electronics, re-wire or add circuits and buttons, and solder it back together...stuff like that. I'm becoming an even BIGGER nerd, basically. Soldering glasses, please!
Speaking of nerdiness, I leave you with a flippin' awesome link of my newest favorite artist (thanks to Jan again): Gilberto Esparza (Mexico). And finally, in love and mourning for the beautiful farmers market near my house, which has now closed until the middle of spring, I give you these:(thanks Maki for the photos!)
Kram Puss Puss Puss,
