Intro to contemporary drawing is pretty awesome. My first "real" assignment for the class is to make a graffiti stencil: one or more colour, spray paint on poster board. The subject is a social/political statement that I feel passionate about. I'm to avoid using iconic or cliched imagery or text. The audience is the class and the location is the hallway in the Visual arts building so the message can be a little more esoteric than what I'm used to doing for my projects at work. One idea is to play with the notion of unplugging: ipods, cell phones, iphones, computers, person electronic devices . . . experience the world sans soundtrack. Actually, there's a lot of good stuff in that idea there, I think I'll use it. "Don't mind if I do".
