Sorry for the lack of posting....may I plead holiday distractions?
Here's what's going on at Studio House of Rats:
1. new print "Feral Child" 60" wide....woot woot!
2. Sculpture (currently in plasticine, to be cast in glass by Steve Easton). Hey--sculpture is fun! Who knew????
3. I am writing a book. Title suggestions welcome...this is going to be five essays.
"Beauty-Inspiration-Creativity"--this incorporates the beauty essays from this blog--rewritten for the ten thousandth time. I swear...this time nailed it. yeah right!
"Craft in the Age of Digital Technology"--craft...what is it distinct from fine arts and design, why should anyone care, etc.
"This is Not a Pipe" on the notion "authenticity"--originally for a symposium at Camden Rutgers but posted here too.
"Treasure and Torture" --art and politics. Ugh. I hate politics. This was written originally to present to my UArts students in conjunction with a project they were assigned. They were tasked with responding to the "Tesoros" exhibition at the Philly PMA, an exhibition of post-colonial South American art and artifacts.
"Light, Divine and Otherwise"--stained glass and light.
So enough about me...how do you think I look?
