For this week’s Art Assignment. I like the teetering almost-unbalanced look of the stack, which echoes the situation described on the spines.

Title: “S.H.A.F.A.”
Video Supplement For this art assignment, I decided to take on Marcel Duchamp. This is the first of two pieces I am going to do inspired by him, the first exploring his work in dadaism. 
I used the piece LHOOQ as a point of inspiration for my first piece (mostly because I didn’t feel like stealing a urinal.) 
I wanted to see what it would be like to vandalize the Mona Lisa. But rather than simply scribble a mustache on the painting, I decided to take to a more modern approach and vandalize the code of a JPG image of the Mona Lisa.
To do this, I drew inspiration from LHOOQ again by using a loose translation of the pun “Elle a chaud au cul” or “She is hot in the arse.” I then took to introducing the phrase “She Has a Fat Ass ” into random points of the code creating the resulting glitched image.
This style is know as “Glitch Art,”  an aesthetic design based around artifacts, noise, missing information, poor connections and bugs. The style can be used to create a disrupted or surreal image which I believe pairs well with the motivations and philosophies of Dadaism. 
This is my warm up, my next piece, I am drawing inspiration from my favorite work of cubism, Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2
Be on the look out for that one, I plan to explore that one a bit deeper.

My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that.

To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too…

Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.

My only statement. My brothers’ are also online. Thank you for all your kindness, and goodbye for awhile guys. xo (via zeldawilliams)
