Stuff I used to do.

Writing the about section of my site started to make me think of all the stuff I've done before sculpting. I thought it'd be fun to post it up here to show.

So I started off freshman year as a photo major and my photo career peaked first semester. I took images of my family members faces and one outfit from each of them and switched around bodies, faces and clothes. I also used a flashlight to light them in a darkened room with the shutter held open. This is my mom with my dads clothes with my youngest brothers face.

In these ones I took facial features and shoved them under some stockings over her face to make these weird looking faces.

Two prints I made from a collagraph plate.

This is where I stopped doing photo pretty much. I did five big 2' x 4' panels on wood of each of my family members playing an instrument. Then I attached to the back some circuit bent toys that had buttons and knobs sticking through so I could play them. I had a video of myself playing it but lost it.

This is a video I made from taking images from a tv I opened and circuit bent then put together in after effects.

This is a weird analog noise synth thing I made when I was teaching myself electronics.

This was a stuffed pink thing I made and stuffed a wireless camera into. The camera sent video to my computer into a program I made in max/msp/jitter that took colors and used them to color a video pattern that it was generating.

And now I'm sculpting. What fun!

I've also been working on some more figures. I'm trying to really push myself with these. There are some in progress pictures on my flickr.
