These are only a few from the collection. I spent 4 hours scanning all of them for my archives. It's the smart thing to do. The selects will be in the book and in the exhibit. And there is a good chance that the other polaroids will end up in my thesis sculptures!
After 5 weeks in Namibia for my current project, I am happy to be home. I gathered more than enough material for a documentary, exhibit, and thesis. The overall statement of my project came into focus while on my adventure. My work is a statement on the influence of tourism and outsiders on Namibia's indigenous craft culture. The adventure was grueling but, one thing remained easy… talking to the kids. Kids are always happy to meet you and find out what you are all about.
Here is a selfie I took in a Himba village in NW Namibia.
Artprize 2013 is well on its way. I'm so excited to be a part of the process. I was able to display my sculpture at the K-Light Foundation and hundreds, maybe thousand? of people walked by the exhibit.
I was able to travel up to Michigan for the installation thanks to the support of the the University of Alabama Graduate School Travel Fund Grant and matching funds from the SLIS Graduate School - Book Arts.
