Mostly, I wanted to post a poem that I wrote the other day in class, that I really enjoy reading, and feel quite satisfied with at the moment:
DEATH TO THE MOCCASSINS
Falling rockets in a midnight blue
I just bought these shoes, damn it.
My brand new moccasins
With their fringed ankles and leather bows
We set them on fire,
And mourned there demise
We never saw it coming,
The rockets rain
Sparks zipping through the air
We never saw it coming
We watched in awe as the
drifted around us
I’ll never forget those shoes,
We burned them
In a fiery pit
In the backyard
Of a stranger
I do not know why
We deemed it necessary to burn those shoes
Golden moccasin flames
in rockets rain.
It’s early dawn,
On the morning of the rain
Smoke and haze envelop the dewy bladesThey are only charred remains
I know, I know, poetry right? Well turns out I really love that class.
I'm also currently working on my portfolio, which I'm feeling quite proud of, but am not quite prepared to post as of right now, I'm getting feed back on it next week, and depending on how that goes, I might just post it.
I'm also working on a concept for the city of Detroit, mainly the Michigan Central Station..it's based of Marcel Duchamps Guest + Host = Ghost project..in which Marcel wrapped candies in wrappers where he had Guest + Host = Ghost printed.....
My concept, is based on a series of words, but mostly I'm basing it off the idea of Detroit, and it's ghost town appearance, I'm using the words disembodiment, transparent, x ray and orb as a few of my inspiration.
Promise to post more when I have longer than 5 minutes. (When, and if that ever happens)
