Final Project Artist Statement

Poems included: When it's not even who you want(ed) it to be The joke's on you babe Living with the hope that careful placement Will make paths cross in fate or circumstance Does it work? Yes love, do you believe in either? Because you always seem disappointed A child can only be told so many times That you don't believe in them or that you don't think they are capable Before they crack or decide that your opinion no longer matters I just want to see you. Anywhere. How can you expect Me to be perfect If you are the person Who showed me imperfection In the first place Minimizing our differences only hurts Those who are minimized because of difference. My God has a sense of humor And life is his performance art. Inspirations: Jenny Holzer's "Projections" and "Painted Signs" Chris Marker's "La Jetée" Statement: I am fascinated by how words can challenge physical space limits in the 2D digi

Final Project Proposal

It wasn't until I took some space that I realized how crushed and suffocated I feel/have felt.  While in tears on the plane back to my reality I wrote a few poems that found me.  I want to make a piece using this writing that attempts to visualize my internalized stressors.  We'll see how this goes! Don't worry, I'm fine.

Reading Response Week 9 Life is a series of translations - learning new languages and how to interpellate the unfamiliar through every interaction.  Translation can be broadened beyond the common allusion to language and applied to any means of communication, including digital language art.  I enjoyed John Cayley and Giles Perring's description of the possibility of language to be "... surfacing, floating or sinking."  Although their description might refer to the visual way in which the passages appear within translation , one could also consider these visual cues as an internal possibility for words themselves.  Otso Huopaniemi suggests "... letting go of some of one's own authorship..." through the use of digital tools and technology, which can open up space for new ways of interpreting and creating meaning through text production.  This reminds me of how some artists, whose work is developed through their manipulation of physical materials by hand, cre

Google came, Google saw, Google conquered

I remember using Google for the first time in second grade.  It was during one of our keyboarding classes, which first taught me how to experience anxiety, where the entire class would get walked down to the computer lab and practice using an assigned computer for an hour or so.  The day we learned about Google we were tasked with exploring what we could find with the keyword "skunk" in various search engines.  That initial search might not have provided much information to the corporation about what my six-year-old self wanted and who I was as a consumer, but I can believe that since then, all that I have learned from and input into the system has been monitored and used to target me as a consumer. Google is valuable because digital products cost less to produce and maintain than physical products, and this is a product that virtually everyone depends on to find answers.  Google only knows that which is added to its vast digital archive.  You only know what Google is progr

Codework is, Codework is not

Reading Response - Week 5 Alan Sodenheim 's explanation of what codework actually is in it's physical and verbal contexts, by telling us what it is not and where it exists.  This work is likely more comparable to a poetry than coding or programming, which drives me to believe that that is exactly what programming is - poetry.  Programming language is a coded, determined, and layered rhetoric designed to produce a desired output.  And so is poetry.  Yet both forms of communication are driven by a force beyond themselves, which objectifies them into use for commodification.  But how do we learn to understand and to recreate for a desired effect?  Saussure's explanation of signs and signifiers can provide some solace for those seeking to know why we identify "what is" as that specific "what is."  The object of programming, like that of linguistics, rests in an input - a "what is"- that requests a visual and reactive output.  Yet in the realm of
