Thanks for the (Meme)orie(s)

It’s no secret that the young people of today are really fascinated with utilizing social media as an humor outlet in times of stress. Particularly, following the outcome of this turbulent election cycle, political memes have become rather rampart. Some of my favorites are those remembering the Obama-Biden relationship while in office. You can check…

Public Art Installation

With the presentation by our guest speaker, I thought I would look up some other public art installations that combined music with public art installations. I thought this post about the swings was so fittingly perfect because it incorporates music with an interactive installation. I also really enjoyed the feel good experience that users of…

Why Brexit happened — and what to do next | Alexander Betts

I’m so hesitate to still talk about the election and it’s not even art-related, but I really want to share this Ted talk. I watched it a few months ago but I feel that I relate to what he said even more today. It’s also interesting how many dislikes this talk got…it seems when someone try…

The way each world is constructed and designed is so detailed and thoughtful, which makes the stories even more disquieting….

Post Election Therapy

I am experiencing five stages of grief, but I really like this Tumblr that celebrates different artists’ styles and individuality. Despite everything, that’s what we do best – to be unique and to be individualistic – to be uncompromisingly ourselves despite everything. http://artistportfoliosites.tumblr.com/

Post-Election Therapy in Space

I know for many it was a little hard to get out of bed today. Even if you went to bed at 12 am and didn’t wait for the official result to come out, you knew what happened. Going through the news today was painful to say the least. Using art as therapy has been…
