Ox-Bow Day 1
And so begins the first day in a two week journey of self-discovery, material exploration, and a taste of the grand outdoors. I’ll be taking a glass casting class, which will be my first exposure to glass working. I have no idea what to expect, but our syllabus states that we will have made our first object before lunch tomorrow. I’m pretty excited.
It was also my first time going out in a canoe, which was very freeing. I’m sure ill be doing much more of that during these next two weeks.
Prepared to Die
Today I finally decided to give the game “Dark Souls” a try. The game has always come with a high recommendation, but is notorious for its punishing difficulty. I was happy to find that the “punishing” difficulty of the game comes down to persistence and patience enough to die over and over while getting a better handle on the game.
these flaming swords, or ‘campfires’ act as save points in the game that you teleport to after you die. I have a feeling like I’m going to see these swords quite often…
I was treated to two great things today: Castle Crashers, and Pacific Rim. I don’t think I’ve had this much fun in a long while. I figured I might try to get these kids together and do a mash up. Seemed like the perfect fit.
This is the first progress shot of the series of melting furniture that I’m making with two fellow students for a gallery show in the fall. The scale model on the right should give you a rough idea of where we’re headed.
