Grape-vine and Rest

Today i spent most of the day in critiques in other people’s studios. I also helped get ready for our open studio that will be held on Friday December 6th at Victory Parkway Campus.

When I got home I started working on some dance steps. They will be vinyl prints of dance steps for various dances. They will be common line dances, like the grape-vine. Except there will be prints for you to rest your body. Below is a picture of some tests I made from construction paper on my living room floor. You can see there is a butt print where someone can sit and rest. I think there will be more directional cues like arrows, and words in the final version, but I’m not sure yet.
