Center For Book Arts.

On our last course, we had a field trip which was really cool. Especially the Center for Book Arts! I really like the 30 feet long comic painting called Accretion Scroll, by Mike Estabrook which is super genius! It caught my attention at all. I’ve “read” it from the left to the right and I was trying to find out the order of his painting, but that was so hard. Standing in front of the work with a distance, the picture shows a clear contrast between black and white. When I stepped in, there’s really a mass!But when I watched it much closer, I noticed there are plenty of stories which are connected! It was like people are on the way working, or a corner of a supermarket, or a super great war place of a star war! This painting is so fabulous which makes me think of thousands of ideas, they just jump out of my mind!
Art works are always a good communicating tool to express what you want to say!IMG_2953





View From My Window: Research

Today is a rainy day which is my favorite weather. With a  lot of clouds in the sky make my room feel like hopeless because out of the window, when you look at outside, the first thing jumps into your eyes  is an entire wall. However, this situation makes me dream a lot.

This reminds me an interesting story. I have a friend who lives in a house. This is not proud. The proud thing is, she own a tree! The tree is really huge, like 10m high. Unfortunately, her family try to use every way to cut it down because they’re afraid that the tree will fall in someday. To cut the tree down, I feel like sad about this. If there is a tree    belongs to me, I’ll be really proud of it! But I live in apt that never and ever happen. So I image there is a tree in my view outside the window.

I like the view which is full of things. I switch my position a little bit, I find out that I can see the street, even the building across the street.I feel excited to keep exploring. On the left side, there is a parking lot, several cars park there sometimes. There is a railroad track when I see further.

Those are all the common things that we may see in our daily life, but when I saw them today. They are all like full of lives.  The city is colorful because this elements.
