Thanks to the wonderful presentations done by Mackenzie, Meaghan, Mary, Amanda and other I was able to come across a common theme that we have all agreed should be one of our pricipals during the presentations. That was that it should be cheap, and fun. What cheaper way to make art than to find garbage and to use that in art, or other found materials. This not only promotes recycling and reusing, but to also look at our everyday lives in an artistic content.
The following presentations helped me come to this conclusion.
1. Mackenzie’s Inflatable
2. Meaghan’s Used books
and favorite artist Brian Dettmer
3. Amanda’s artist Vik Muniz
4. My own Japanese Stab book
5. And the artist Tara Donavan
