Last Week- Artist Interview – Troy Rouseville

Walking outside the galleries, I hear a loud banging. I was a drum playing. I was thinking when I walk in someone will be playing the drums. Wasn’t I in for something, the drums were playing themselves. Then I heard and saw the piano playing themselves. moving around the room there was also a record and a guitar the was playing music without the hands of a human or anything. I thought it was really cool, but I also thought how much work it must have taken to make this project actually successful. I’m not exactly sure his “purpose” in creating something like this, but I didn’t get some sense of how technology becomes so advance and we are just left here helpless.

We become so advance in technology that we don’t even need to play the instruments themselves. Yet, that takes away the beauty of music and a musician’s ability to tell a story through an instrument. I don’t think we should let technology overpower that, but I still do admit that it’s pretty cool they can play themselves.

Wk 13- Artist Interview – Marie Thibeault

The very first gallery caught my attention. It looked like the painting of a sunset, yet I wasn’t sure if they artist intended it for it to be the sun or the moon. The bright color looked like pink to me. In person the picture looked like it was glowing. I was very appealing to me. The color caught my attention and everything around it stood out to me even more because the colors were so dark. The painting was very vivid. On the other hand, the colors of all the cubes caught my attention also. All the pink and oranges caught my attention. I seemed to notice I am most attracted to paintings that have pink or are very bright and colorful. Although some paintings seemed to be very dark, there are always at least figures within it that stand out because of their color. Maybe it is because the artist wants to emphasize something, they simply liked the color, or it just turned out that way. This gallery was the one that caught my attention the most. Some paintings were very odd and dull to me, but I decided to take pictures of the colorful ones. The last one that drew me in also was the picture of someone falling out an airplane. There are many surrounding planes, but this was pretty gruesome to me. I don’t know exactly what it was suppose to mean but then again it did have many shades of pink and that may be why it drew me in.

Wk12 – Activity – Teach One

This week I decided to teach someone how to do what I love the most, take pictures. Photography is a great way to portray creativity. There is only so much one can do to be creative through a lens, you would think. My youngest brother who I spend much time with was my little student for this week. Through him, I actually learned a few things myself. Angles, colors and even items you snap pictures of says a lot about your creativity. Photography requires a very open mindset and willingness to “go to extremes” to capture the exact shot you seen in your head. It is much more difficult to transfer and idea from your head, through a lens, and onto a photo. My brother seem to learn that this week, but surprisingly did not have too much trouble with it. I am very impressed with the photos he came back with from this week.

There is not much I can say about my brother’s photography, except that it speaks for itself. I personally think he did a very good job.
