SPA Week 6 Duchamp, Cage, and Ono

Assignment from page 122 from The Book of Surrealist Games. I still can’t help but be reminded of Discordianism when discussing Da Da and Surrealism. There are so many parallels. Including Andre Breton calling himself the ‘Pop of Surrealism’. The basic component of Surrealism is automatism and chance. Automatic sculptures, […]

SPA Week 5 Surrealism and Automatic Sculpture

I remember fondly in undergrad the week we covered Da Da in art history. Exquisite corpse drawings and group created poems drawing each word from a blind grab bag. I even attempted to host a Da Da day at the Buchanan Art Center. Not a single person signed up for […]

SPA Dada Response

Hello, I would like to introduce you to my Intellectual Self.     Intellectual Danielle gets energy from new ideas, loses energy to people that don’t care to learn, is stressed out when faced with huge projects and no idea how to start – the major sign of which is […]

SPA Week 4 Drawing the Self

Lewis Hyde recorded Lecture from 11-06-14 A Lived Practice Symposium at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. This lecture was a bit hard for me to connect to. Audio books and podcasts are not really easy for me to pay attention too. For some reason when it is […]

Art Beat 2015 Prep Issue #2

I had intended to keep up with blogging about this years adventures, however life seems to have gotten in the way. It’s harder to find a hotel with reliable, working wifi than you would think. We set on on July 3rd with plans of hitting National Parks, Gem and Mineral […]

Journey 2015 Days 1-3

Revisiting old work is always interesting, especially when there’s a possibility of dusting it off for a new purpose or giving itanother attempt. Originally my Tarot project was supposed to be my senior thesis project for my BFA. Due to time constraints and the unforseen difficulty of wrangling so many […]
