Aspiring artist, Tainted Little Red, compromised the style of the original little red riding hood to unveil rocking new beats of the electric piano. She has been involved with music for as far back she can remember, starting with classical piano as a child. Electronic music has always been a huge influence on her music taste. Early February of 2008, she decided to create her own songs and share it to the public. Ever since then, she can't stop spitting out new pieces full of energy and room for the imagination. The alluring rhythms should get you moving to the beats.
Building started inside because we wanted to stay warm for as long as possible. Once we built the fort inside, we took it down and took everything to the bus stop.
The fort is made of recycled cardboard, old closet doors, duct tape, cinder blocks, and other odds and ends found in the basement and garage.
It was built and filmed at night because of scheduling issues but this didn't prove to be as big of a problem as I had originally thought because the workers at Joe's Market let us use some outlets to light up the scene. In addition to the bench that the fort is designed around, there are blankets to keep the waiting riders warm, and festive holiday lights!
The materials I used in making this piece includes: Graphite Pencil, Permanent Marker, Poster-board, and cardboard.
The reason I chose these materials ties into the thoughts I had coming into this project. With a pencil a person can create such detail that it looks real. By using a pencil I could get the most tiniest details of an eye and possibly show details that a person would normally not see with this blown up version of the eye. With the marker I was able to get the point across of bluntness and boldness. The eye can also see something so straight to the point and with little detail.
Ever since we were born we began to develop our eyesight, some people better than others. We use our eyes to see far and near and for things big and small. But when do people really think about what they see? How many people stop to look at something and study its detail? I have always been a person to notice the most extreme details of things. I am also a person that reads everything that I walk by. I have done these things ever since I can remember. Using the eyes is something most everybody does, we use eyesight to survive.
So what I am trying to say is that I believe most people do not use their eyes to their full potential. I believe that people should pay more attention to their surroundings and give those little things a chance to be stared at.
Analysis of the two songs handed down to us by ethnomusicologists reveal the marriage of human folk and goblin folk traditions, fused together by a shared love of drink and the darker things in life. Some scholars have posed the question, "why Minneapolis?" Their ensuing research comes to the conclusion that perhaps there exists two Minneapolis(s), coexisting like a palimpsest. One is what we perceive as the normal, modern world, while the other is a more timeless, ancient dimension, where monsters and demons are kings and the power of magic is feared. In this realm, goblins laugh at the curse of life and death.
An anonymous fan has created a myspace page for the group, now known as the Straight Shooters for their no bullshit style: www.myspace.com/mnstraightshooters
This is a "webcomic" I've been enjoying for some time now, and I thought I'd share it with the rest of you.
The design for the "comic" is based on old text adventure games. The "prompts" are taken from the viewers of the site. For more information on his method and his other work, check out the rest of the site, in particular the FAQ.
When approached in the right way, do you see text adventure games as a form of interactive art? For me it is hard to think of them otherwise.
For a good introduction to the genre, you can find ZORK, a very good example, here.
1. Organize and host an activity for a group of at least 4 people (friends, classmates, and/or strangers) where you work on building a fort, treehouse, or shelter together. What will your structure be used for? Invent a real or imagined use for it. Document your work through video or photographs. Present your documentation as an edited video piece, a blog/website with text and photos, or both.
2. Expand on or revise the ideas that informed your video project. Make an entirely new video that sets out to do the same thing more effectively. You may NOT use any of the same footage or audio material as your first video.
3. Start a band where every member wears a costume. (It could be just you.) Write at least two songs that relate to your costumed persona(s). Document your project in one of the following ways:
A) Perform your songs live for the class.
B) Organize an off-campus performance and videotape it.
C) Make a complete MySpace site with photos and mp3's.
4. Dream assignment: You can do whatever you want. However, your proposal must be approved by me. Bring a 250-400 word proposal explaining the concept of your piece, how you plan to realize it, and what form you'd like to present it in.
