DAAPWorks 2010

The sheer magnitude of talent at this year’s DAAPWorks 2010 was absolutely astounding.

After checking out Jenny’s work, we roamed the different floors oooing, ahhhing and trying to pull our mouths off the ground.

Such handiwork and brain power makes someone like me, who can’t draw a straight line even with the aid of a ruler, feel like donkey crap in the talent department. But I guess that’s just how God works, huh? He blesses some with the ability to design things outta clay, wood and computer graphic programs, while He blesses others with the ability to write, tinker with computers, take photographs, paint, take care of the sick, run a marathon, perform heart surgery, etc., etc., etc.

If you didn’t get a chance to see the exhibit in person last week, then you should just punch yourself in the face.

In the meantime, you can also see some select works in the online gallery.

Trust me when I say that neither those pics, or my pics below, don’t do the talent any justice, but nonetheless…enjoy [some of] what you missed…

So there is a mystery brewing at the Fashion library at DAAP.

It’s tradition that students bring back snow globes from far off lands to be displayed on the tops of the bookshelves.

The mystery lies within certain “snow globes.” The last eight pictured globes, appear to be homemade versions. They look like they’re made outta salsa jars. No one at the library could tell us who the mastermind behind these morbid, glassed pieces of art was.

So I beg you, dear readers, if you have any idea who is responsible for these snow globes…please let me know!

I’ve been tossing and turning at night trying to figure out who would be so sick and twisted to dream up these bloody, gory scenes suspended in unknown, clear liquid. I mean seriously? Whoever this person is definitely has an obsession with national geographic type scenes of animals fulfilling the circle of life. It’s bizzaro land captured in glass.

Please help me out…so that I can finally get a good night’s sleep.
