Process-Blog Beginnings

I was encouraged to start this blog after people were impressed with my process journaling. So I have decided to follow through and try to update this at least twice a week. Today I spent hours filming my video about “Legs Up the Wall,” for probably the 6th time. I have been working really hard to get the lighting right and I have been learning a lot about white balance. I still have a lot to learn about photography but my friend who teaches photography says I can sit in on her class next semester. Here is a link to the video I worked on today:

Ongoing Project
2019

I am trying to create a series of videos for this project that will make up a Youtube channel. I’ve written a lot about this project for various proposals, but essentially, I am trying to appreciate and deride the conventions of the dance world simultaneously through humor and art. I’ve also recently become interested in Fat Activism. At first I was really into body positivity, but after more research, I’ve decided I resonate more with fat activism because it isn’t always about being positive.

I’m working on a lot of sculptures at once, but most recently I casted a concrete form for a piece I am working on. Here is aare some photos of it:
