Makin’ the Headlines
Hey everyone! The month of February was uber-crazy, but I’m back, with a few updates on my latest creative endeavors!
GIRL POWER RE-VISITED :: an evening with the Spice Girls
Can I let you in on my guilty pleasure? I was among the esteemed privileged to see the Spice Girls during their final (?) Reunion Tour at the Verizon Center in DC, on 21 February 2008. If you put two and two together, you will realize that I was an original Spice Girls’ fan in their heyday of the late 1990s and, as a shy/insecure teenager, would not have even considered doing half the crazy things I’ve done in my life if it weren’t for their endless promoting of the GIRL POWER slogan. The show was extraordinary [and worth every $ paid], like a post-modern Broadway musical, with its many set/costume changes and special effects. It was a celebration of each individual Spice Girl and what she had accomplished over the years, as well as a tribute to their families and loyal fans. Highlights included the Posh Catwalk, Mel B’s Lenny solo, Mel C’s powerhouse solo performance of “I Turn to You” and last but certainly not least, the confetti pour down at the end of the show. I was able to get some really good concert photos from my 33rd row seat, and got some published on this Toronto-based online magazine called Now Public. Those photos can be viewed here, along with my album on Flickr.
And speaking of photos….
PROJECT 365 :: UPDATE UPDATE!!!
It’s still alive and kickin*… taking a photo of yourself (or some part of yourself) every day for a year is serious business, but it has allowed me to stretch my creativity in unimaginable ways. Click here to see my progress, and enjoy the photo below which was taken on Leap Year Day 2008! Digital photography is amazing!
My friend Emily and I recently got accepted to present our research [to be conducted, that is] at the Transforming Museums Conference in Seattle this May! Unfortunately, she won’t be able to make it so it’ll just be yours truly at the poster presentation. We’re discussing curating methods in an era where art is solely considered the commodity and nothing of intrinsic value, so stay tuned for more ramblings about said topic to come.
Stay ARTSY, and make room for creativity in your life!
