BFA Show

Well the BFA show was a big hit! There were so many people and an unbelievable amount of great work (I expect nothing less from my peers!)

So a little about the group show with in the BFA show:

[Kartag'refe] brings together four artists exploring the mapping of ideas as well as historical and personal narratives. In each piece the artist has assumed the role of cartographer by defining and editing the view of information presented.

And here was my piece:

Each hat was a representation of different cities in the world. From left to right: Chicago, Rio de Janeiro, New york, London, and Paris. on the bases of the hat stands were the maps of the cities printed and the table covering was silk with longitude and latitude lines printed on it as well as old style boat drawings. The silk was dyed/stained with organic tea to give it more of a vintage feel.

and the rest of my groups pieces:

Sabrina's Piece:

Jeni's Piece
