Dayz


One of those dayz


Wandered through Studioplex in search of the "EXTRACTED[examined]" juried exhibition of SCAD students. I was lured into the labyrinth by a show statement offering: "botanical systems as an analogy for the nuances of memory, the meaninglessness and absurdity inherent in human existence, the complexities of contemporary femininity, the effects of human endeavors on the natural environment, the continual interplay of inclusive and exclusive forces in individuals and societies, the human body’s reactions and adaptations to a changing world, and the documenting of our world’s visibly perceivable phenomena."

Sounds really interesting.


The show was closed for Easter weekend. Looks a bit like a kindergarten classroom from the outside. Photoawesome did make it inside the show though and has a video walk through with accompanying soundtrack.



the meaninglessness and absurdity inherent in human existence...


the continual interplay of inclusive and exclusive forces in individuals and societies...

Went by Eyedrum to see the "Draw Off" show but it was closed too. No art for Easter.


the documenting of our world’s visibly perceivable phenomena...

No matter, it was off to the mountains for Junior's first hiking experience.


I think his view of the world changed dramatically. A never ending bed of leaves, over flowing banquets of sticks, new types of animal droppings to sniff, and the absence of distracting fire truck sirens every four minutes... is this... heaven?


Action shot. He's clears the fallen trees like a natural. Some guy said, "that there's a little deer."



the effects of human endeavors on the natural environment...



the human body’s reactions and adaptations to a changing world...

6.7 miles later he was one tired and happy pup.

Alright, so I admit this post is a failed attempt at art coverage and a shameless display of pictures of my dog, but you know you liked it.

Sometimes gratuitous dog pictures are preferable, even to art.
