Wk2 – Art Experience – Plaster Casting

I went to Long Beach for my week 2, Plaster Casting Project.

Step 1: Dig a hole

image

Step 2: Make sure that the hole is big enough for ✋.

image

Step 3: Wet sand on top of my hand and remove it carefully to create a mod.

image

Step 4: Mix the plaster and water.
Step 5: Pour the mixture into the mod created.

image

Step 6: Cover top of the mod with sand.
Step 7: Wait for 30 minutes.

image

Step 8: carefully remove the sand around the ✋ and being it home!
*My tiny hand!* 😻

*After rinsing the sculpture.*
It captured the detail of my hand.

I was suprised that my ✋ comes out “perfect”.

Before starting on this project, i am awared of the possible failure for a✋ sculpture on plaster casting such as, broken fingers. Therefore, i have decided to close my finger tight while i am shaping the mod to avoid problem as such.

And i am glad that it turns out perfect. 😝😝

The only disasvantage of this project was my dirty clothes and my long black hair is all covered with sand! 😰

The hardest step of the process is to mis the plaster with water. As the ratio of both of the ingredient is extremely important. For once i thought i added too many water therefore my mixture can never dry! 😭😭 So i went ahead and repeat the whole process to create another hand. Glad that in the end of the day both of my hands came out nicely, and i am end up with 2 hands. 😂😂

Overall, this project is one of a kind! It is a unique experience for an engineering student to go outdoor and experience the nature while completing a project. I am glad that i have took ART110. 🙌🙌

Wk1 – Photography #1 – Landscapes with a Corpse

If I were to die, I wish I could die in the water.

I have always adored the beauty of water.

It looks simple but yet complicated; It looks safe but yet dangerous.

The fact that it holds both extreme identities at the same time is interesting.

Women are just like waters, they seems weak and harmless but they can be dangerous too.

Women hold both extreme identities as the same time just like water.

Even in the word “She” there is a “He”.

After death, our death body will float in the water,

with our body moving upward, the water is sending our soul towards heaven,

which for me, it represented peace.

 

I hate complexity.

Therefore, if it is up to me, I would prefer to leave this extraordinary world in peace.

 

The process of taking these pictures were enjoyable,

I like being in the water because I feel peace in my heart.

I even stay in the water for a while more after the shot just to enjoy my moment.

 

 

From,
