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 !
