Representations of Me

I had tremendous difficulty with this assignment: To sketch 4-6 representations of self. My self. And it was much harder than I had anticipated. I was challenged by my lack of artistic skills and my inability to think of how to represent myself on paper.

Project Proposal

            In my research project for the rest of the semester I am interested in exploring female and feminist art. I began this project by asking myself a series of questions that I wanted to explore both in my research and in my own artistic work. What makes a work of art feminist rather than female? Can a feminist work of art be produced by a man? Why are there not more women in the traditional cannon? If a work is done by a woman, does it make the work innately feminine in some way?

What am I thinking?

Where are my thoughts? To be honest, my thoughts are telling me that I dislike this assignment because it is actually requiring me to think, hard, rather than just regurgitating information, quotes, or an analysis of the reading. My thoughts are that I would rather be studying for the LSATs, which I take on Saturday, instead of sharing my thoughts with the world.

But since I must, because I have not, yet, disconnected myself from the hierarchical patriarchy of logos that is academia, I will write and we shall see what my body puts forth in an attempt to brighten my dark continent.
