Faculty Evaluations Part 2

Sadly, the Faculty Biennial was cancelled this year. I had planned on photographing my installation in the gallery to post here as Part 2 of the previous entry. It was the first time I created work specifically for the faculty show ("an evaluation of faculty by faculty" or so says the artist statement) and it was non photographic ("drawings" and sound). Alas, all that hard work before leaving for my residency was for naught. Maybe it will make an appearance next year but I sense that its time will have passed before next fall rolls around.

Faculty Evaluations Part 1

Part 1 of my submission to the faculty biennial (what's this? they aren't photographs!).

James K., Jacinda, and Javy Russell's Drawings on "Student Evaluation of Faculty"
Each 11" x 8.5"

Last year, I realized that many of my brother's and my childhood drawings were made on the back of faculty evaluation forms that our father brought home from the Art Department. I grew up disregarding the text, flipping it over to use the blank side. After contemplating the irony of this action, I wondered whether or not the front could also be an art form?

Archiving (Really) Old Artwork

Meow. A note to my grandmother shortly after I had braces (age 8). Yes I am including it in my response to Arline Conradt's cat scrapbook.

I am fascinated with what the back of the paper looked like that my brother and I scribbled all over as children (particularly the peacock page on the left). Is it from a book? Any guesses Mom?

Then I rediscovered the giant stack of paper that Javy and I always had access to for our drawings and what the source of it really was. This is going to make this project a whole lot more interesting once I finish up a few more things and devote some time to it.
