Tomorrow I'm moving out of the Torpedo Factory studio that I've been working in for the past couple of months. It's been quite an experience - and it's amazing how much the look of the studio has changed over time. You can take a look at my pictures from when I first moved in to get an idea of what changes I made over time.
I'll get to work for a couple of hours before I start packing things up. I've already made some space in my apartment to serve as my home "studio." And although I have a nook set aside for myself, I think that in the next couple of months I'll want to focus more on making animations. We shall see...
Above is a shot of my wall and pedestals complete with lettering that I taped to the wall. I noticed that a lot of visitors previously thought all my pieces were paintings and would just walk on by. The lettering really helped me out - it would catch their eye, drawn them in, and make them realize that it was made of paper.
A few weeks ago I moved in a small desk that you can see towards the back there - I turned it into my work desk so visitors would have a better view of me collaging when they walked in.
Some of the magnet packs I made - I sold quite a few of these at the studio. They were pretty popular - and seemed to work well with all the tourists that come in and out of the art center.
And here's an image of my guest book, magnets, note cards, and digital picture frame that showed a slide show of my other work that wasn't hanging in the gallery.
Anyway, although I'm moving out and one more thing will be behind me, I'm really looking forward to what's coming up these next couple of months.
