As opposed to my first two event blogs taking place at the Fowler, I decided to pick an exhibit from the Hammer Museum as my third blog. This exhibit is called Between Starshine and Clay by Kiyan Williams.
During our week 5 class and visit to the Fowler Museum, I found interest in the other exhibits of the museum, so I thought it would be exciting to expand on my previous thoughts and get more information on them. For my first blog I wrote about the Almighty God exhibit, but another amazing exhibit in the Fowler was the “Imaginary Trip”, by Congolese artist Gosette Lubondo.
During our week 5 class and visit to the Fowler Museum, I found interest in the other exhibits of the museum, so I thought it would be exciting to expand on my previous thoughts and get more information on them. One of these exhibits was based around “How Do You See The World?: The Art of Almighty God''. This exhibit has various pieces from the Ghanaian artist Kwame Akoto, who calls himself God Almighty.
I was upset to miss class this week, as my classmates have said it was a very interesting lecture! Unfortunately I can not comment very much on the lecture as a result, but I thought it would be best to blog about some important parts that came up, and do my own research.
Our week 6 class was probably my favorite so far, with Professor David Roy’s entire presentation surprising me at many points. I personally am not all that interested in sculpting or sculptures in general, but David Roy’s take on sculpting really caught my attention.
The trip to the Fowler Museum was a very interesting experience, especially since I didn’t know we had a museum on campus. I was a bit late, but still got to hear the interesting information about the khipu in the exhibit. It looked like many different strings with knots in them, all tied together at a base. This one was made of cotton and vegetable fiber, and found around 1500 CE (Fowler Museum).
Sadly, I wasn’t able to be in class this week and I missed this really cool experience at the planetarium. So, instead I’m going to be blogging about the websites associated with this week’s material! The planetarium’s website caught my eye instantly with the actual machine they use for the show. I jumped to a new tab right away to look for more info on the machine.
