beginning of the end (of grad school)

And this marks the beginning of the end.

Who knew two years could pass so quickly. Well nearly two years anyway. This time has been spent wisely, not wisely, reflectively, out spokenly, and a million other adverbs and probably a few adjectives. 

It's really bittersweet and I'm feeling pre-nostalgic. Not for the hustle and stress but for the learning and access. To amazing people both fellow learners and teachers, the community at large and the facilities that help me produce all the things rolling around and competing in my head for attention, time and innumerable hours.

That being said, I need to release my pre-nostalgia and keep my head down. The opening of my final exhibition / graduation show at CalArts is Thursday, March 31st in D301 Gallery.  

I feel like I need one of those giant countdown clocks. Except that sounds terribly basic so instead I'll just say three months and all the murkiness will be cemented. 

As always when I make one of these infrequent posts, I'm in an update phase of my website. This time with the help from Sydney Brown (www.sydneybrown.co) a talented photographer and friend. 

I write this as I'm  sitting in the basement of CalArts scanning roll after roll of negatives by myself.

As I look forward I'm invested in exploring what it means to long. Where there are wholes in it and how the reality often isn't as spectacular as the fantasy. 

 

And that seems as good a time as any to stop.
