It was an amazing experience going to both The Center For Book Arts, and The Rubin Museum because I honestly never been to both these locations. When we went to The Center For Book Arts, the Zines were so out there. It had everything about violence, politics, women, and so on. My favorite one that I read was, “The Talking Lamb”, and it was very dirty, but interesting at the same time . A man talking to a lamb and arguing about very uncomfortable things to even write on this post. I also enjoyed the different stories of individuals that were hanged up on the wall. Some were weird, sad, fun and outstanding stories, but their story is what made them who they are today. After going around, we finally saw the process of printmaking machines. I always wanted to try printmaking, but never got the chance to. The guy that talked about it was very friendly, he showed us a poster and how you can tell that it was freshly printed but the old style. Anyway, going to the Rubin Museum wasn’t as bad, and I really enjoyed that museum. Francesco Clemente, a Italian man, but his heart in India. His paintings was a one word description, phenomenal. It described the cultures that India has, but also the differences within. In my opinion and what I saw in his paintings, India has a lot to do with symbols, and Earth. In some way the Sun means something, as well as the moon. Hunger strikes people in India, and starvation occurs everyday. The sculptors that represented the Sun was my favorite because in india is always hot, and people need to somehow get water from the river or a stream they could find. Finally, after visualizing and comprehending, i enjoyed his work. It was interesting and fun to read about each painting. At the end, it was time to go, but I enjoyed the Field trip and can’t wait for more to come! 🙂
After completing Project #1, I feel very accomplished. This project consisted of just writing about yourself and who you want to be. I think it was a very interesting project because a lot of people don’t know who they are or who they want to be, but this project makes you think and realize who you are. Within this project, peers would read and give you ideas or feedback of what you wrote. This was a very helpful method because I fixed my essay and included more details than it had before. It was okay to be eccentric in a good way, it was about yourself so go for it! When I made my own revision, I thought it was well done. Maybe I could include more vocabulary words, but I thought what I wrote is exactly who I am and people know who I am once they read this. I didn’t take so much on time on this project except one thing…. and that was writing of who I really am. Like i said before, its hard to write who you are when you really don’t know fully who you are. But, after this project, and after experimenting more that consisted of what I love to do, I know who I am if anybody asked. So, in total it tok a week, with revision and feedback from peers, but in general I would say an hour for the final piece. For my next project, I want to accomplish it with more vocabulary words, and more detailed work. I hope next project would be as fun and interesting like Project #1 was.
