Planetary: Jim Denevan

What’s more ‘planetary’ than a guy that makes Earthworks art?

Jim Denevan makes temporary drawings on sand
earth and ice that are eventually erased by
waves and weather.


Amazing photography! You can scroll through his galleries and click on the ‘explanation’ links at the top for more in-depth information about his individual works. All photos from this post are his, btw.

on how I need a new alarm clock + look at what I made!

I did one of those things that no design student should ever really do… sleep through the important part of a review 😦
If only magic and/or mind-reading were real, perhaps someone could’ve put my finished boards up for me instead of just calling to see if I was ok (and for future reference I am silly and turn my phone off when I go to bed – but this example might force me to finally change my habit).
At least it was reassuring to hear so many people concerned about my well-being, and it was nice for some pretty good designers to ask to see my work after class anyway [!]

I’m putting up a majority of the work I’ve done since the beginning of this project, beginning with my super cute arts&crafts mood board and ending with my current 3D computer models via SolidWorks. Any and all criticism is HIGHLY encouraged! Really. Please.

Jackson already mentioned the following to me:
– pick-up-ability of the plate? it looks chunky and hard to hold in your hand
– define your target words [I did; see above]
– it doesn’t seem honest, more secretive and ‘hiding’
– the size reversal of having the cup small and the saucer bigger is quirky

And I need to add context, both in terms of hands & lips and other tableware, like silverware.

epidemik.

I went to a screen printing party @ the Epidemik Coalition office/home of Ted. It was really rad and I did what DVA said and I made friends with people. Ted gave me a tour of the office space upstairs and got a sort of ‘inside scoop’ on what they do.
Pretty interesting to see those kids outside of 104 and actually talk about different things.
I’m excited to get more involved in IDSA and start some things.
Screenprinting was soo fun; I forgot how much I enjoy it. I think I’m going to put a screenprinting kit on my Christmas list [with a new Lomo flash ring, etc.]
I’ve also decided I need to think more seriously about getting a bike – or a bike that is practical for city riding and is not a sweet orange Paul Frank cruiser that sits in my apartment and holds magazines. Parking over in downtown ATL was so sketch, and I’m awful at parallel parking [although I did manage on my second try].
Speaking of sketch, I know what I have to do the rest of this weekend!
Hopefully we’ll all be amazed on Monday.
