Wk2 – Classmate Conversation – Marissa

For this week’s class topic I got to talk to Marrissa about whether or not she believes art is important in today’s world. It seemed that we both had similar thoughts about why it was important. It was expected since it is an art class that we both chose to attend to. I would assume most students appreciate art in some way or another.

For Marrissa, art is an expression that people use to communicate with each other. She believes that people have different perception of art which creates different ways of communicating. She stated that she plays an instrument, a form of art, to relieve stress. She believes that art is a way of connecting people of all ages. She brought up Instagram and how it connects people because one post of a picture could connect people from all over the world. She also had an interesting view about how if you join together stem fields and art, that we’ll create something new and different.

Art Project

Since I’m juggling school, internship, and work, the only time I had available to do this project was this Sunday afternoon. I was fortunate enough to have a friend tag along with me to hang out at the beach while I did the project. As we got to the beach, I scoped around for a suited spot to do the project. I knew I needed to use sand that was wet enough so it could make my mold stay. I attempted with a spot quite near the water… Which was a bad judgement call because the waves came too close to my plaster within 15 minutes after pouring it out. So I had to quickly pick up my plaster and move it away from the water so it could dry properly. Sadly, while I was moving my plaster, my mold broke. So here are a couple of pictures of my sad attempt on making a mold of my hand. IMG_7978.JPGIMG_7984.JPG

First Day of Class

First day of class went pretty well. I got a fun and vibrant impression from the professor. He had fun spunky clothes and red skrillex hair. He lit up the room with his outgoing personality and adventurous mind. One of the tasks that we had to do in class was to talk to a person and find out what/who their favorite artist is. I got to talk to Bunny. Her name is actually Bunny. She’s super cute. Through our conversation I learned that she enjoys listening to Korean pop, as do I. Her favorite band is Big Bang. She enjoys listening to Kpop because it has a variety of different genres such as; ballads, pop, dance pop, etc. Listening to Kpop also helps her while doing homework. Below you can see a picture of me and Bunny.
