Craft Forward Symposium, Day 2 -- A Pixelated Brain


This image is a metaphor for my brain at mid-day after four lectures. Tons of amazing information. Multi-level, multi-faceted, and ready for more.


This is my brain by 3:00 PM.  More very remarkable lectures, and my brain trying to hold on to a mosaic of thoughts and images, i.e. overload.


This is my brain by 5:00 PM.  Now super overloaded, pixelated, and digitized. The symposium has been a very dense experience. As an audience member, I feel richly rewarded by the speakers with much to think about for weeks to come.

The images above are of an installation by California College of Arts graduate student in Fine Arts, Madiha SirajTitled "Oyster EB-12," it is a room-size installation composed of paint swatches. It was part of the student and faculty exhibition on display at the CCA San Francisco campus during the evening soiree. There was also belly dancing, a hip hop body contortion, street dancing, and several Pecha Kucha presentations by a series of graduate students. Overall a most amazing day!

I am not going to write anymore tonight but will keep my goal to write about every lecture as soon as the Conference is over. There is so much to report.
