Videos

This is where I'll be posting videos about art without watching them first... just kidding. I will watch them first, just thought I'd give Mr. G a heart attack. Muh-ha-ha-ha-haaaa!

Jackie Winsor's #1 Rope

For all those whether and science geeks, you might like this one...
Nathalie Miebach: Art made of storms

For all of those future engineers and those who are interested in sculpture, you might find this interesting.
Janet Echelman: Taking imagination seriously
I think you'll appreciate the tecnology that goes into this one too...
Aparna Rao: High-tech art (with a sense of humor)


This is a wierd live-action one with computer graphics, but it's pretty neat...
Miwa Matreyek's glorious visions

BĂ©atrice Coron: Stories cut from paper
Q&A: How would you tell a story without words(no, sign language doesn't count :D)? Please post your answers below...

Here's another short one...
Marisa Fick-Jordan shares the wonder of Zulu wire art
This is like a bio of an artist, but it's pretty long, so I would watch it at home...
Elizabeth Murray

This is one is short but sweet...
Camille Seaman: Haunting photos of polar ice
Q&A: Camille finds that icebergs and glaciers have human traits. Do you think she is correct? Why? And, if there is another landform that is more human-like, what would it be and why?

This one is pretty interesting, but there is nudity, so some of you might be more comfortable watching this at home (I know I would've been)...
Miru Kim's underground art

This is not about art, but the woman is an artist and talks about some pretty interesting concepts of body preservation and decomposition. This (to me)says something about her identity as an artist. Her burial suit idea could be considered a work of art though too, right? <I stare at you sheepishly.>
Jae Rhim Lee: My mushroom burial suit
Q&A: To me this shows that she is comfortable with morbid things without being a homicidal maniac. She probably draws morbid things on a daily basis and doesn't even know it. What do think this says about her?

Maira Kalman, the illustrated woman

This one is less focussed on art and more focussed on the rules and traditions of society for women (in a humorous way), though it does have more art than the burial suit :) ps, there is one bad word, but that's it
Liza Donnelly: Drawing on humor for change

This is just awesome...
Shilo Shiv Suleman: Using tech to enable dreaming

Shirin Neshat: Art in exile
Q&A: I found this to be very moving, but do you agree with her statement that all American artists can just brush politics aside amd not have it affect them?

This one has something wierd at the 15 minute line, but it lasts about 10 seconds, so it shouldn't be a big deal. Just a forewarning...
Paola Antonelli treats design as art
Q&A: Do you feel that art can have more than one function, that it can be beautiful, emotinal, and useful at the same time? Why?

Here's one with 1 bad word in it, but it doesn't detract from the intelligence of the talk. There's not a lot of humor, but there is some. I found the images to be quite interesting too...
Marian Bantjes: Intricate beauty by design
Q&A: Do you think images add or detract the amount of knowledge and sophistication you get from a book or essay? Why?
