Drinks and Drawing
Drawing Games Played in Bars

The content of my piece will be drawing games people play with their friends in bars (or when hanging out in general).

I picked a few games such as scribble drawing. corpse, and paper telephone. 
I will get together a group of people in the Viking Room (more than just once).
We will play the games over drinks (alcoholic or not).
I will focus the camera on our hands, the artwork, and the interactions between people during the games.

I will produce images, video, and sound from the time together.

I have thought about including a bit about drinking games played in people's homes rather in public. 
Card games
Beer Pong (I am not very excited about this one)
Drinking games while watching TV shows.

A second idea: 

This artist lives a very different lifestyle than myself.
Hip Hop artists such as Tyler, The Creator and Macklemore live soberly.
I find work of artists who are sober very attractive. I live quite the opposite lifestyle.
How would it affect my art? How would it influence my creative flow?

Pamela? Vivian? Bannos? Maier?


What happens when an artist keeps their talent a secret? 
What happens when creativity hides away in boxes?

Pamela unleashes mundane, teen-level photographs into the world and people smile.

Vivian Maier. She archived her pictures and decided not to share.
Pamela heard of the prints, keep it a secret she not dare.

This post is appropriately short as I feel like I paralleled the effort and work that Pamela put into her project proportionately to what was asked of me.

Noritoshi Hirakawa

“The sexual revolution is over, the Puritans have won.”

Noritoshi Hirakawa’s work is relational in its social context and relevance to contemporary culture. He wants to encourage a shift in the viewers concept of sexuality in our culture, specifically in the aesthetics of depictions of nudity.

In the above project he uses trained dancers in order to promote ideas of desire and power.  This project was one a few collections that is meant to humanize and sexualize architecture. The people interacting within the buildings make it sexual
These types of models understand body movement and the connections with sexuality, emotion and intimacy that exposing difference curves can catalyze in an audience. He wants to use his camera to connect men’s and women’s desires as opposed to just using the camera to depict men’s desires for women. 

 In this photo, he puts the subject into the public space to capture a private part of her. It’s relational in the subject's way of exposing herself in public. She was in control of the camera taking this photo as Noritoshi took another picture from afar of her photographing herself.
