Current Thoughts on Project 2: Prosthesis' Prostheses by Allika Williams
Oh my God. I should have been in the remedial version of this Digital Fabrication course. Y’all got me in here feeling like J.Cole in “No Role Modelz,” except my version would be “No skills and I'm here right now. No skills to speak of…” I mean, these kids are in here producing art they could sell to somebody on Ebay or Etsy for $1,000 or more. It’s obvious I am lightyears outta my league here. But I refuse to turn in trash for my next project. My last project was literally put together with duct tape. Truth be told, I did the best I could do with negative $5.33 in my account. I’m not making excuses, though. You need more than money to make a fly digital fab product. You need creativity and skills. I have barrels of creativity and I promise I had some oil painting skills (somewhere…) I just have not been successful in integrating art technology in my technique. Which is exactly why I'm taking this course. I was feeling really hopeful in the beginning, but now I’m feeling like Meryl Streep at the end of Doubt.
(By the way, CONGRATS to Moonlight’s outstanding wins last night and Viola Davis!!! Y’all know she deserved that Oscar for her role in Doubt!)
