"Stains of Life"
For my Interactive project, I chose to express how I felt about how life is something that comes at you in many different ways, and usually in ways that you can't nessecarly control. To illustrate my idea of problems that come your way unexpectedly, I chose to use "stains" so-to-speak. These different substances that I collected were intended to represent the variety and difference in effect "stains" can have on life. I brought in the blank white canvas and had a handful of you add your "stain" or mark to its surface in order to build something that was the creation of many. I hope those of you that put one of the "stains" onto the canvas had fun with the project, as it was meant to be a bit humorous in a way. I was hoping I could get all of you to perhaps laugh at some of the "stains of life" and be okay with what might come your way in the years to come. I also had myself in mind when creating the project. I attempted, throught this project, to accept and be alright with some of the "not so perfect" things in life, and to embrace things that are messy. It was a good exercise for someone like me. Though, to many of your dismay, I could not hold onto the piece because it reeked of cheddar and toothpaste and was just too messy to keep around. But thanks for taking to the piece so well! I had fun!
