Today was our first work day. It was pretty straight forward. I used today to go online and research different artist for my Collections project. The Collections Project is our final, we are basically to produce and curate a hypothetical art exhibition. I’m not sure who all my artist will be, however, I know for sure that I want Barbara Kruger involved. She is a major inspiration for my idea of focusing on text in artwork. The other big inspiration is the art piece Troll by Stefani Byrd and Wes Eastin. I’m going to use the idea of Internet trolling, people online who cause strong reactions from their audience through text, and how similar mirroring themes show themselves in artwork.
