19 days of summer school

19 days of summer school

do you know tehching hseieh's work ? he's this amazing performance artist that blurs the lines between art and life. he does pieces for a year at a time... [like punching a clock every hour for a YEAR. yes people that is dedication]. in thinking about him, and about the ridiculous-ness that is the reality of summer school: 19 days. 9-1. everythingcrammedtogether. and also about how the only time i really ever "dress up" anymore is to go to work. i can't wear nice clothes in the studio. kind of silly to wear skirts to the park with the little where it will be requested of me to climb a rock, or go down a slide...

but i still love clothes. just a fact.

so i documented my outfits. for the kick of it - in the horrible bathroom mirror at school [the two not are the two days were were doing field trips and didn't make it back to campus].

have to be done with grading by tuesday. and then we are doing a family stay-cation of sorts. and then i get my "normal" life back for a few weeks. or at least a life w/out commuting and grading. there is plenty else to do !

more soon !

I love this. It's good to dress up isn't it, for more than studio or park life.
If I did this it would like look the same day over and over; I think I end up wearing almost the same set of 5 outfits day in and day out.... Perhaps some sewing is needed to give me an updated wardrobe?
Happy Stay-cation.

What I love is the one or two days you could wear short sleeves in the summer. You know my hood all too well. Enjoy your staycation!

I love these 19 days photos... and it is nice to 'see' you. As someone who always wears the same thing and will only venture near a skirt twice a year, if that, I salute you and your fashion brilliance.

The film festival is coming up here. 19 days of films at the tail end of winter. If I were to stand in front of a mirror in the toilets of the theatre foyer, all my photos would be the same. Except for the bags under my eyes, I expect.

Glad summer school with its furious pace went well, and hooray! for your new book (once more) too.

P.S. I documented my film festival days (seventeen of them, it turns out, not the nineteen I'd remembered from previous years) to own great amusement: http://gracialouise.typepad.com/high_up_in_the_trees/2012/08/those-pearls.html
