1. Would you be more likely to use these than regular rubber gloves to wash dishes?
2. What changes would you recommend for the gloves to make them more usable?
3. How would you like to see this product marketed?

which was my "C" project, it's an optical theremin that was based on that wire that I had.
The I did:
because I was starting to think about vision and think about seeing things, like the theremin does.
Finally, almost completely unrelatedly, I made:
which was keeping with the whole paper thing that was in the last image. It's a set of notes to an ex of mine.
Because I love lasers. A lot. And that sort of has something to do with the wire that I picked as my object, I suppose.
This is my first one, exploring language and emotion. This "C" project pretty much ignores the emotional side, as well as real words, creating an alphabet from the three basic toothbrush noises.
This is my left brained one, focusing on using stark language and facts, lack of emotion.
This is my third one, starting to add emotion, and telling poetically the experience of drinking orange juice after brushing your teeth.
This is my last one. Its a lot more emotional, at least for me. Its about the experiences I had growing up with my sister's eating disorder, which I've had these crazy connections happening with. Once I made the connections during the orange activity of oranges, chewing gum, brushing teeth, with my sister's past, I couldn't really get it out of my head.
these are amazing creatively stimulating movies that if we had a studio class - we'd be
Short Order *Life is a Buffet*
Perfume - The Story of a Murderer (Das Parfum)
Issac Newton: The Dark Heretic part 1
And my favorite film about - well living young...even when you are old. We are where we are at - and it's all about how you see life.
Harold and Maude
This is the first week I am not using my object, as a poster project for my type class seemed to align beautifully with this assignment. I am using 6 variations rather than 4 because I feel like my "in between" stages became the most successful.

This was taken from the Science Friday Website:
this is being replicated for educational purposes - intended to share with my students and introduce them to some of the fantastic things found on Science Friday's Art's page
Creative Thinking for the Healing Artsby Lynn Fellman, Nov 21, 2009
My destination is Dr. Jon Hallberg’s new Mill City Clinic across from the nationally known Guthrie Theater. As physician on call for visiting performers at the theater, the clinic is in the historic Milling District near the Stone Arch Bridge that crosses the big river. A beautiful part of town recently revitalized to highlight the arts.
Shown above is a view from my favorite bike path along the Mississippi River with a view of the old Mills and the Weisman Museum. Does it look like a watercolor painting? It’s not. I created the image with my digital drawing tools with many transparent layers to get the effect.
Shown above on the left is The Guthrie Theater and on the right, a view of Mill Ruins Park and the Stone Arch Bridge crossing the Mississippi River.Music and science are in his DNA
Jon has thought a lot about creating a soothing place to enable healing. His ideas began in his first year of medical school where he played alto sax in the college orchestra. While reading an article about an injured violinist trying to play in a restrictive neck brace, he wondered if medicine could focus on the needs of creative people. Now years later, he’s known for his medical specialty for actors, musicians, and opera singers.
Jon has found that caring for creative types and respecting medicine as an art compliment each other. Of course, all kinds of regular people attend the clinic and respond to the serenity and beauty of the space. From the art on the walls to music in the air, Jon’s Mill City Clinic is a healthy convergence of art and medicine.
Shown above is the waiting room of Dr. Hallberg’s clinic.Linking theater and medicine in innovative ways
Another way Jon connects the arts to healing is through his new endeavor, the Hippocrates Cafe. Working with professional actors from the Guthrie Theater, Jon explores medical themes through spoken word and music. The very first Cafe at the clinic will preview this week to an already signed-up audience. The hour-long event is about influenza in its historical and social contexts. I’m one of the lucky ones to see the first presentation. I’ll leave my bike at my studio and bring my sketch book instead to better enjoy an innovative evening of science and art. More about the Hippocrates Cafe, upcoming events and a link to Cafe’s new web site coming soon.

i made a valuable business contact last week...
The more I learn about string theory, quantum mechanics, and the logical systems of the universe, the more epiphanic connections I make about the parallels in form between the monumentally large and the infinitesimally small. This piece explores my mounting understanding of the perfect organization of the cosmos and my hope for the future use of science as a scripture for fulfillment.
I chose an orange to echo these elemental, congruent, divisible forms. It glows with primordial fire and the ferocity of a living organ. Its segmented cells mirror both the microscopic and the astronomical. Placing the orange between the iconic symbols of the hands of Adam and God, I aim to paint science as a current and future harbinger of consummate Truth.
