Sorry i didnt respond earlier i had a migraine all day and night yesterday. Same! Dollhouse was really good and I love Eliza dushku. I wish it hasn’t been so hastily wrapped up though. Huh. I think Hannibal will become my new show. I’ve been trying to find something cause I finished buffy but I just haven’t been able to decide…
SO I’m working on my final projects and its so stressful yet kinda fun at the same time and I love it and hate it.
Frustrated because I’m not pushing myself artwise and I havent been creating work that I find really satisfactory or interesting.
Just did a project on the Lakota Nation and I am actually really disappointed by when you search images the amount of hipsters wearing warbonnets that they have no right to and the “war paint.” I was actually compelled to make a few slides and added a speech about Exoticism, Cultural Appropriation, and Racism into the project.
I included pictures of warbonnets in the proper context and also pictures of these so called “Indian” photos and put X’s over them and have discourses on why each of these images promote appropriation, racism, and falsified images of Native Americans in general and also how they appropriate Lakota culture.
I really hope that this actually resonates with some of the people in my class and that they actually listen to what I am saying and realize that these images ARENT ok, and that they become more aware and sensitive to Native Issues.
I’m going to be starting a new painting soon. I’m thinking something surreal. Its a painting for a friend and its going to be in her room. I want to do something really cool though.
I love stalking my own blogs.
