Week 11

Hi Guys!

Nice work on your Art Care Packages last week! This week we’re on to Fiber Art Wall Hangings.

Discussion Videos

This week we’re back on the history timeline as we look at the art of the 21st century!

We have another “Avatar Artist” this week, Vanessa Blaylock. While she shares the use of avatars as a medium with Joseph DeLappe, the “direction” her work points is different. I think DeLappe’s work often uses VR spaces to say things to RL audiences… by contrast, Blaylock’s work may be less for us out here in “meatspace” and more a sort of Public Art or Participatory Art for Avatars in VR spaces.

Your Art Care Packages

Nice work by everyone last week! Here are a few samples of what you created:

Carol Velazquez made a cool ACP for a friend in another city that she used to go to Dodger games with. But sadly, the ACP itself is not Carol’s big news of the week…

… unfortunately the bigger news from last week is that Carol dislocated her knee! 🙁 Get well soon Carol! 🙂
