This activity I decided to choose PHOTOGRAPHY! This is by far my favortie form of art because I love the different forms of lighting, angles, and candid moments! This week my sister and her two kids came to visit me from Texas and of course they wanted to visit Disneyland, so guess where we went? DISNEYLAND! Got there at 9 and didn’t get home till midnight! It was a long day but within that day I captured a lot of images on my phone ranging from obsessive pictures of my niece or the costume characters roaming the park! The lighting trough out the pictures is was fascinates me because a little tilt in the angle of the phone can change so much of the picture. Photography is a great form of art that is being done on a daily basis and it is shown through the vast amounts of pictures people post on social media such as Instagram, low and behold what most people don’t know is that they are engaging in a form of art that people take for granted! This activity was so much fun because I got the best of both worlds! I got to spend time with my niece and do homework at the same time and have fun along with it!! I hope you all enjoy looking at the pictures of my day at Disneyland! Don’t forget art is a form of masterpiece! #art110 #disneyland #family!
This week I met a fellow classmate as I was searching for an art piece to catch my eye and as I was browsing trough the galleries I met a fellow classmate to interview and her name is Marie Rivas. Marie is an adventurous girl who loves to travel! She loves to explore around the world and within the states, some places she’s been has been North Carolina and Central America. Marie is majoring in Biochem as a full time student and also works at Metro PCS. As she is majoring in Biochem it kind of linked similarity between her and I because I first came to CSULB to major in chemistry to pursue my passion as a veterinarian, but that all changed when I declared my major in Business. It was so great to meet Marie and learn more about another classmate! I can’t wait to see who I am interviewing next week to learn something new!

This week there were plenty of galleries and a vast amount of art to draw my eyes on, but one gallery/piece of art work that stood out to me was Dana Fleming’s. The artwork that she created was so simple with bits and pieces she found in a thrift store. It’s crazy to think that art doesn’t have to be expensive to buy, it can be items from a thrift store that is inexpensive that can turn into a masterpiece. I had a great time exploring these galleries this week and I can’t wait to see what’s in store next week!

pictureThis week I had a hard time thinking of where to place my body and about the landscape. I first tried to take the picture at school in the horn center because I had been studying and it was driving me crazy. Iactually fell off of my chair so that didn’t work out! I then decided to go on the stairs of my friends apartment because I always slip on them anyways. I had a lot of fun just trying different angles and I choose the lighting that was darker because it seemed more mysterious. I thought it was pretty cool that I was able to position myself to look like I was not alive considering it was Halloween!! This activity was so cool to do during Halloween because of all of the movies that were going on and they gave me ideas of how and where to position myself. I decided that a place I frequently visit would be a good idea and I enjoyed this activity. Happy Halloween!
So as I was walking around looking for a piece I liked I spotted something shiny and shiny things always capture my attention. It was hundreds of coins ! I think that the artist was trying to show people that he thinks money rules the world and that we should pay attention to the little things in life like the live beetle in the back of the room. I was so freaked out when I saw it move at first and I wondered what the hell is it going to eat to survive in here but I saw the box covered in coins out of the corner of my eye again and so I went back to that piece to look at it some more. I think money is something that people see as the most important thing in life and it should be like that. The beetle and the money are completely different and I think the contrast helped show that a living breathing thing is much more important then an inanimate object such as money. The structure showed how money keeps you in a box and keeps your mind on one thing when it should be focused on living things that are beautiful like the beetle. I enjoyed it and wish you luck.
