Drinks with Grad students

We had pizza a beer with grad students this afternoon, welcoming them to a new year. I had a lengthy conversation with Peter about cult tv and star ships as bodies.

New stand mixer

Margaret bought me a new (RED) stand mixer. Our old one has been repaired a few times and is making some struggling noises. The new one is just slightly bigger but has a more powerful motor. We made some cookies to break it in. Mom arrived back from BC with grapes for us. 

Berny's studio and Gabriela's Slate opening

Met with Berny this afternoon and talked about his projections and a bunch of big and small ideas around it. I like that he is investigating narrative in it, although by their nature, loops resist complex story. 
After work we headed over to Gabriela Garcia-Luna's opening at Slate. Her photographic work has tremendous texture to it and I told her how I found myself looking at some of them from an angle to see if they really did have depth. Cool stuff.

Photos of paintings of cameras

So long as you don't enlarge them, my paintings look okay in small photos (much better than in real life).

William working ahead on his art projects, having to do a large drawing of something small. He has his treasured dead dragonfly he found on the deck this summer.

Finishing touches on my film

Completed a short film I'm calling "The Lost Art of Inertia" based upon the first roll of 35mm film I shot with my WWII camera a few months ago. It is primarily a study of rhythm and and experiment with some sound editing I've been thinking about. The finishing touches this weekend allowed me to enter it into the SIFAs. I like to get something to them that has not been shown before, when possible, although this strategy has always failed to get a fall screening and nomination. My only nomination with them was with Eyes of Sorrow Moon which had already shown for two months at the Dunlop and at the CCE print show after that and a handful of festivals. Fingers crossed I suppose.
