Interspecies Exhibition 6/6 By Brianna Acuesta (06/08/14 22:03:55) Related animals: Cat, Dog, Goat
Overall, I thought the show looked really great and everyone seemed to be having a good time when I arrived. Mango and I only were able to be there for a short time but his reaction to the other dogs turned out to be surprisingly better than when I brought him to class, and I absolutely loved how adorable he looked paired with your daughter. Though I wish I had been able to execute the project I originally started, which was the project with the flower pots, Mango, and the octopus, the timing of everything didn't work out and I'm happy with the pictures I chose for the show. The ones that I didn't get to display, also because of poor timing, are displayed below, as well as some outtakes I didn't originally choose for the show but that I think show a little bit more of the closeness I felt with some of the animals. I truly enjoyed this class and the way it allowed me to redefine the way I incorporate animals into my art, as well as showed me a new way to become close with them. One of the critiques that really helped me see the way in which we are working with animals was when you told someone that the pictures they had taken of sea lions from afar was still objectifying them rather than collaborating with them, which is a great distinction. Thank you so much for everything, I hope I'll be seeing you in a future class!!!

This is Mango when he's being adorable at home, which is all of the time.
