Turmeric Paint

On Thursday we learned about Sasha's journey as an artist and bio-materials. I didn't think I would be interested in Sasha's life, but I was dragged in. I could relate to her struggles using harmful supplies since I was ceramic/ sculpture orientated when I first arrived at UCLA. I remember my high school portfolio had a lot of roofing tar in it and I just threw them away after I was done with documenting them. While looking at Sasha's pictures throughout college, I realized that art is a very wasteful field.

The hidden history of indigo pigment

I am so glad that we did another seaweed natural dyeing workshop in class, and it really has widened my horizon of how capable natural creation could be. So in Sasha FIsherman’s workshop, I chose egg yolk as my natural binder, and I took a photo right after I added a pinch of the indigo pigment powder which I found the colors and the texture look so great together. The mixture was pretty thick to be honest, I guess I should have added some water into it to make it smoother.

Noise Aquarium + Noise Pollution

In class, we enjoyed some clips of the Noise Aquarium and Ocean meditation together. First of all, I really like the idea of the Noise Aquarium as I have never imagined how people can dive into the Ocean and listen to what marine animals will be listening to which I guess mankind is not able to do so. It is so sad that we cannot enjoy it in person during the pandemic.
