About Art, bottles, fish, and beads

Previous Entry Art, bottles, fish, and beads Jan. 20th, 2007 @ 02:13 am Next Entry
My Contemporary Art History class is evidently going to involve visiting a lot of galleries. That could be interesting, and if nothing else, walking around town is generally nicer than sitting in a classroom looking at slides and failing to stay awake. Today we went to one of the many galleries in Pioneer Square. From there it was convenient to continue on to Uwajimaya and get some bottles for use in my sculpture assignment. I got some fish too, while I was at it, and made spicy tuna rolls.

Some of my beads came today, too. Now I have yellow jade for Venus, azurite-malachite for Earth, and some kind of jasper (leopard, I think) for Mars. This silly bead project has turned into kind of an ongoing expensive obsession. I really would like to make the solar system necklace work, though, because I think I can do a better version of it than some of the other ones I've seen. Admittedly, those others did include a few that were meant to be fun projects for gradeschool students to work on, but still.

I still need to find the right kind of small tumbled hematite chips, for use in the asteroid belt, and something small for Pluto. Poor no-longer-a-real-planet Pluto.

Re: don't waste your pity

I would feel more sympathy for Pluto if the pictures of it weren't such an icky pinkish color. It has such potential for being all dark and romantic and distant and moody, way off on the edge like some kind of goth planet, and then it turns out to be just another small, pink, cute thing, like maybe it's an underage girlfriend that Uranus picked up somewhere. (He always was kind of an ass.)

Re: don't waste your pity

You rule.

Look, also, a stranger has a pretty good little entry on cuteness as insult.
I have noticed recently that the things I apply 'cute' to (3d models of weaponry, alien creatures, work that doesn't quite merit a 'how great!' but is still clever or well-executed) are sort of weird and people laugh at me for it. We have an inadequate language, is all, I guess. Colloquially, at least.
