That's the website I made for my web authoring class, it's in regards to my comic, so I thought it's related.

zimmerli trip

Catch up post, I went to the Zimmerli a while ago for the color blocks show and the 'modern artists' show. That place is a friggen maze. Some of the woodcuts were neat, I'm not sure how they actually do wood cuts, but I think it lends itself to a pretty cool style. I mean, there wasn't much that really stood out to me as being all that great out of that selection.

I did enjoy the Russian artists they had upstairs, they were members of a movement of some sort, but I totally dug the abstract collage like painting things, with like brooms and nails just thrown on the canvas, they were pretty awesome. I don't know what they were supposed to be, but they looked real neat, pretty dark though...

The modern artists exhibit also was somewhat underwhelming. The one guy had a piece that was just a picture of a basketball player with the number and name erased off his jersey. I'm sorry, but that is the lamest shit, the fact that some guy just learned how to use the damn clone stamp tool in photoshop. Either it's the same artist or a different one, but he makes videos and just erases the names and numbers from sports footage. I find it to completely lack and real work, or ability, they can use a clone stamp tool...awesome, I could teach a friggen six year old to do that, assign whatever meaning you may like to the pieces, but the lack of any real work on the artist's part I think removes merit, they're not even his pictures.
The rest of the exhibit was also pretty underwhelming, with a lot of the pieces just not really adding up, nothing really struck me.

Oh well...

grad school post.

Ok here's a list of schools i would possibly be interested in:
School of Visual Arts:
If only because I was originally going there, and I'd maybe want to clear that out of my system.
My Grandpa went there a long time ago, and they are supposed to have a good program?
NYU: A friend of mine is going there for a graphic design program, I looked at the materials for the program and it looked interesting. We'll see how he ends up liking it.
Mason Gross: Simply because I'm accutomed to living here, and I really don't care for the city much. But this would be a long shot, I really don't care to stay at Rutgers for another two years.

My stance of not caring for grad school is still the same though. . .
