GIF Mainia Take 2

Hi there! I loved making these GIFs! GIFs weren’t a new concept to me, I’ve made them for numerous classes throughout my time here at UMW (one post can be found over here). I am used to creating GIFs with found footage (clips of videos I’ve grabbed from YouTube) so it was a challenge for me […]

Pipilotti Rist

To be honest I thought Pipilotti Rist’s work is very different to the other artists. First of all she is a videographer. Most of her works is videos. Ever is Over All: This one really reminded me of the Beyonce video, Hold Up, where she smashes car windows. But I thought this was interesting. Someone […]

Jason Salavon

In my research of Jason, I found that he uses a lot of color. So I wanted to write about a few of his pieces that I thought used a lot of color in an interesting way. All the Ways (the Simpsons): I thought this was really interesting. Also really loud. I never thought to […]

A Boat Ride With Myself

This project was a lot of fun! I was home over fall break and I decided to go ahead and take photos while I was on out boat one day. It was hilarious trying to get the right angles for the photos. I ended up having to redo the whole thing the next day. But… Continue reading A Boat Ride With Myself

Waves of Distraction

Representational: Distraction For this one I wanted to show the distraction I have when I try to sit down and read. No matter what I do, 5 or 10 minutes into the book, I will start listening to music, go on my phone, or someone will call me. I can never solidly read very often.… Continue reading Waves of Distraction

Wafaa Bilial

Wafaa Bilial’s work was so interesting. As I was looking through his works, A Call really stood out to me. Its interesting to see how he premiered the work. His visa into Iran, so he started a video chat to show the work from New York. Another piece I thought was interesting was his work […]


This project was so fun! I have to admit that I struggled a little bit as well because I couldn’t really come up with an idea, but with the help of friends input I was able to come up with my idea! I decided to take a present day photo of the Eiffel Tower and… Continue reading Appropriation

Cory Arcangel

Cory’s artwork is very interesting. And he also documents them very well. His website has a wide range of his work. I like that he has created clothing as well. The other artists, with the exception of Rashaad, have not worked with clothes. I also like that you can purchase the items from his website. […]

Rashaad Newsome

Rashaad has a totally different approach than the other artists. I really enjoy his work. Some of his pieces I don’t really understand but there was plenty I did enjoy. So here are a few! Art of Papers: I know we talked about this one in class but I really like the mix of traditional, […]

One Tool Madness

So the first project is completed! I had a ton of fun with this one. We were tasked with creating an image using just one tool in photoshop. So take a look at what I came up with! Transform: The transform tool allows to rotate, skew, scale, and distort the image in any way you… Continue reading One Tool Madness
