So, one term down and three more to go. This has been an incredibly bumpy start to graduate school. I have barely done anything and what I have done has alienated me to say the least. My midterm painting was kind of personal, so the comments that I received made me more defensive than I usually am.
I decided to spare myself any more emotional trauma by creating a sound installation for my final. This critique went exceptionally well. Partly, because sound can be very engaging and this critique was attended by many faculty members who read my work based on how it functions. To understand what’s going on, you need to know that there are 5 radio transmitters, each playing a slightly different track into 5 different radios. The tuning isn’t perfect, so they have static and waver in and out of tuning.
