My idea for broaden your thinking is to put Lucy Muturi's complex arts and graphics project together with Joy Evens Wangui's project on terrorism together. My questions are, could art be a way for people to express themselves so they don't become terrorists? If they found a way to express themselves and found that others were noticing their art, would it make them less likely to participate in terrorist acts? Is it possible to use art and creativity instead of military force? Or would...Read More...

Flora Xia is doing a project on animation, and Moira O'Keeffe is doing one on the pacific gyre. I wonder if the two can build off of each other. Would creating an animation based around the pacific gyre help to bring more awareness to it? Or would the meaning pass over the heads of viewers, and just be a form of entertainment? Can we use animation to bring awareness to important issues?Read More...

In Utero test shots so like inside the egg n stuff I did this with a broken laptop screen. There were several sheets inside it that distorted the light in a very interesting way and it made it feel like liquid. I also used a red plastic folder as a gel to diffuse the light to give it that pink-fleshy tone.Read More...

Until marriage, women were under the guardianship of their father or other male relative, once married the husband became a woman’s kyrios.

However they had power to own property. Also,...Read More...
