My Junior Review went well. I spent 10 hours over two days prepping and installing it, and the Review took 20 minutes. I had a good panel though. Stevie, Paul, and Travis were on it, all of whom I knew, so I wasn't nervous about talking about my work. Now it's finally spring break. Ben, Heather and I are working on getting a show in gallery 148, the 1419 gallery, and have been thinking more about our Squat Gallery bus stop shows. But for now, school is over. I am so ready for this break.

So, I just spent an hour in the MCAD library on their fabulous IBM late 80's typewriter typing up the textual part of "the Best Evidence is in Black and White." Apparently I can type just fine until the last line. I have 6 pages here with screw ups on the very last line, sometimes even the very last character. I felt very disruptive, but I got it done. Now all I need is to print the pictures of the people. I found two to three for each, and my mother dug out the 5th grade picture for that girl. I also found a mysterious copy of my 7th grade yearbook which I borrowed from a friend and scanned about 6 years ago. She's in that too. I was so excited. Now I just have to pull together the Shakespeare part, and write my junior review statement. Yuck.

Junior Review is coming! I've been very busy with papers about Lord Byron and trying to find a better solution for the Shakespearean Women project. I'm trying something with dolls this weekend. I hope it goes well. On the Best Evidence is in Black and White front, I'm turning it into more of an installation piece, with a type written sheet of the documentation, the small pictures I took over winter break, a picture of the person that I have lying around (the only one I'm missing is this one girl from fifth grade, but I'm hoping my mother can dig out my 5th grade class picture...), a pedestal with an item that I associate with that person, a relic if you will. More updates soon.
