I was using up my role of film by taking photos of people in VAPA one night, when I came across this lovely lady. I took a photo of her (developed the photo later) and asked her what she was doing.
"I’m working on a coming of age puppet show that explores the human experience through personal life, supported by excerpts of Herman Melville’s book, Moby Dick."
"What are you doing it for?"
"Animation class… and for fun."
Photo 1 - the photo I developed. Photo 2 - another puppet she’s making for the show.
Puppets? Moby Dick? For fun?
I hate it when you go into your place of work to get a cup of coffee and your two friends put pigtails in your hair against your will and spin you around in your chair (you used to love how those chairs would spin…) and take photos of you and make you post them on the internet.
Check out our little journal of student work! The silo is run by students. We each get a copy in our mailboxes, but there is an online version too with music, video, poetry, prose, and all things creative (and a play by me…)! Its a great way to get a feel for what’s happening here on campus.
Originally, I am from Fairport NY, a suburb of Rochester. On campus, I live in Noyes where I am one of the house chairs. My record collection and my tea collection get me through long nights of lengthy readings and difficult essays. When I’m not working, I’m strolling around campus, hanging out with friends or playing piano. More likely, I’m having an intense television marathon or I am asleep (no matter what time of day).
