This May I’m graduating from CalArts in LA with my MFA in Art & Technology and Integrated Media. To achieve this I have to complete my thesis and its concordant thesis show. My thesis subject is “defense mechanisms,” which I left broadly defined to include social, psychological, and physical defense mechanisms. My main show will thus consist of a pile of at least 50 life-sized stuffed-animal weapons laid out in a pile for folks to cuddle up in. There will also be embroideries, quilts depicting fighter plane formations, possibly a “quiet book” library, and who knows what else. Everyone is invited to the opening on April 17th at CalArts in the Mint gallery, 7:00pm, which I’ll re-announce later when a poster has been made.
