Another Blog!

Today has been one week since I heard the visiting artist, Camille Utterback lecture to our class. Utterback a visual artist who uses computers instead of canvases to create wonderful works of art that people can interact with. I really enjoyed her lecture, she explained how she went ahead and started one of her works of art. It was also fascinating to see what she went to school for since she said she had such an interest in Biology, I was surprised to see her not go to school for that particular subject. But I am glad she did not because she creates great pieces, such as Text rain that allows the viewer to hold up letters with parts of their body. Art is great but when you bring to the next level to interact with it makes it even more personable and intriguing. One thing I would like to see Utterback explore is using the technology she created with her art and applying it to a video game, like Super Mario Brothers or Frogger. Last week was also interesting because we watched some of Anthony Samangy's independent movies, which were AWESOME! Other than that do not start a flight club in your class like the teacher in queens who started one with his 4th graders. Not a good idea. Wait until they are a little older. Here is a link to that site. Peace ! http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/teacher_was_kids_brawl_monitor_da_5eh6SUnTSM2Igj8gbSzCJP
