“Back Into Your Mind” by Clare Lyons

The pieces created by Artist Lyons reminded me of our tiny monuments project. In this series, Lyons explores themes of memory and identity. “Through the process of making this work, she digs into repressed and suppressed childhood memories, attempting to fill in the gaps of what she describes as ‘a fractured personal history’”. I really like…

Otherworldly Jewelry Designs by Artist Nora Fok

I was lurking around the web for interesting articles related to art and I came across this page and was reminded of our recently completed wearable tech project. Fok designs wearable textile inspired by science and math using nylon mycrofilament. I must admit I was attracted at first by this piece below. I really like…

“Impossible Fold” by Julian Posture

This collection reminds me of the assignment we were given for this week where we make a monument out of paper and film a story of it. Likewise, in this piece, the artist explores making paper structures and giving life to a 2-D piece of paper. I thought this would serve as a good source…

Staying Connected through skribbl.io

My friends and I have been playing skribbl.io while face-timing and it has been quite entertaining. Skribbl.io is a free multiplayer drawing game where each player gets a word and they will have to draw it while the other players guess what the word is. The key is play it while face-timing because it adds…

“Industrial designer by day, illustrator by night” – Felicia Chiao

One of my artsy friends that I showcased in my previous blog recently introduced me to an art instagram account by the handle “feliciachiao”. I immediately fell in love with the illustrations that I saw as I scrolled through the platform. The figures, props, and color scheme throughout her works all seemed to be from…

Art Under Quarantine

So much has happened in the past two weeks. Two weeks ago, I waved goodbye to my friends, looking forward to seeing them in a week. But a week’s wait, now turns into six months. A week ago, we were notified by the University of an extended break and a transition to online classes for…

“Walks” by Photographer Martin Brink

I came across this collection of photographs and was captivated by the composition and simplicity of the photos. I think these photos did a really good job at exemplifying the less is more principle. I tend to think that colors add to a photo, but seeing this collection I realize that the lack of color…

The Intricate Art of Miniatures

I came across this article and was drawn by the detail of these miniature paintings, models, and sculptures. I realized that I am really attractive by miniature things whether it is mini house models or videos of cooking mini meals. It fascinates me how much detail is able to be backed into small-scale art works….

“When the Neighborhood’s Not Looking” by Billy Cress

I came across Photographer Billy Cress’s collection that he named, “When the Neighborhood’s Not Looking”. I thought this collection of photos really resonated with what I heard at a UI/UX workshop I went to this past week. The presenter explained how we could look at nature for color palette inspiration. I think Cress does a…

How China Built Two Coronavirus Hospitals in Just Over a Week

The Coronavirus has become a hot topic as the virus, that originated in Wuhan, China, spreads to other parts of the world. In order to contain the spread of the virus and to treat the growing number of patients, China built two hospitals in just over a week. I thought this news was relevant to…
