Sue Anne! You’ve got some Spaining to do! Day 26, My Art

Jeez has it really been 26 days already?  That feels like a long time and I’m already desperately missing my cats, husband, and car. Working on the subject of privacy again.  This time it’s wearables.  Each piece is pretty different, so I don’t have the factory-like set up like I did for the previous body […]

Sue Anne! You’ve got some Spaining to do! Day 9, A.I.R.Gentum

Skipped a couple of days while I dis- and re-combobulated in Seville.  Worried enough on the day of travel and even offered a small amount of salty tears to appease the cruel entity that cares for me while I am abroad to give me a smooth day.  The Spanish employees at the train station in […]

Sue Anne, You’ve got some Spaining to do! Day 7, Reina Sofia

Now this!  This… is a museum I could spend some time in!  The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía houses art from the 20th century up to current work being made today. Here I saw Dali, Picasso’s Guernica (as mentioned in the previous post), more Goya, and I learned about a few new artists […]

Sue Anne, You’ve got some Spaining to do! Days 4-5, Art Attack

I think I’ve come down with a cold, dammit.  My immune system has been good and strong over the past several months but the trip and time/diet change has taken its toll.  I’ve been in my room for a few hours this afternoon and I decided to stay in until dinner time.  Going to get […]

But Wait! There’s More! #DDW17, Vehicles

Been home for a week now. Want to finish up the Dutch design week posts and get that nagging tea ceremony post finished. (No disrespect to the tea ceremony, of course!) It’s awesome being home and holing up feels all kinds of right for me here. I think the cats are helping me out on […]

Around the World in 80 Days: Day 77, More of My Art

My work took a strange turn when I got to the Obras Holland residency.  I landed on drawing the images of historic sculptures of Medusa because I liked the rage in her face and I was relating that to the way I feel about our privacy rights being whittled away.  I thought that’s what I […]

Around the World in 80 Days: Day 76, #DDW17 Robots

Really, I think I only saw about half of the venues at DDW17.  I did, however, get my fill.  By the time I left I was definitely designed out.  Parts of Dutch Design Week feel like an enormous Maker Faire as this and a few future posts will confirm.  Starting with robots, we begin our […]
