The year is 2046 and here is Marvin. This is jus your ordinary guy who does nothing all day and prefers to keep a low profile around the base but for some reason gets tangled up into tricky business with the wrong people due to his friends’ vices and tied up deals. So the saying of ” the enemy of your friend is your enemy” is reversed to back and gets him in trouble on the moon Base. But you should check out the rest of his friends and their adventures!

Wk.9 Artist Convo

Artist: Sean Joy Rosario Cabanig
Exhibition: All Work All Play
Media: Metals
Gallery: CSULB School of Art, Marilyn Werby Gallery
Website: N/A
Instagram: N/A

Sean  is currently 23, and graduating after this semester. She is an undergraduate student at CSULB in the BFA Metals Department. She currently resides in Long Beach. In her free time she loves to read, play games, and play with cats. She loves to experiment with new things.

Cabanig’s work is inspired by her range of sentiments and emotion through copper and silver. Each piece has no certain shape, yet has her point of view of random thoughts. She used paper models for construction as a “rough draft” for her actual pieces.

Through her own understanding of the environment and her humor, many of the pieces were made. Of the pictures seen above, her favorite piece from her exhibit was the chain ring. Sean said the simplicity of the ring was what made it beautiful and the range of beauty that can be displayed through the time and effort in her work.

I didn’t enjoy Sean’s work. Her work did look like it took quite a bit of effort but the messages she was trying to convey were of pure randomness and had no substantial meaning which I happen to enjoy more of. But of course her work did appear as though she had invested time and effort in it to the point where I can still respect it.

About the Artist

Bri Joy was an interesting and fun person to interview! She came from a small town who elementary school size for K-6 was about 100 students. Her transition to a bigger school and city was a new thing she has come accustomed and liked. For her spare ti

e, she enjoys being active. Some activities include sports, yoga, surfing, skating, hiking, and snowboarding.

Bri had an interesting view on why she doesn’t have website. She had mentioned that by having website, it would ruin the art experience she wants to portray and removes the personal touch than being in an actual art gallery. Apart from that, she is busy and doesn’t have the time to keep it updated and follow through with it.


Formal Analysis

The formal qualities of her work would appear to be very smooth and the patterns repeated themselves but were changed in size to give a bigger picture. I noticed that something that is so simple can be become very complex if it’s looked deeply enough.

Content Analysis

Bri started her work by starting with organic lines that then would merge to a digitalized graphic that then works and adjusts to the position to present an image. She wanted to contrast with the black and white.

Synthesis / My Experience

I enjoyed the Bri’s artwork! It was a fun experience, and I asked the artist herself as to why its all black and white and she answered that people make connections with colors and this time she wanted her art to pop and force people to make connections with the actual images.

Wk7: Video Project

For our video project, Our group decided I would simply display a little bit of my drumming skills. It was a windy day at the park so video had to be cut short which you might notice that the drum almost fell. With out further ado, yours truly.

Marvin the drummer boy.



Wk.7 Artist Discussion

Artist: Andrea Lauren Williams

About the Artist

Born and raised in Riverside, California. Art and music has always played a strong role in her family. She used to be a part of a band and she played the drums. Andrea is currently an undergraduate and she is in the ceramics program. Her current interest are being a Mom and along with that are pigs, dogs, chickens, and babies.

Formal Analysis

the texture of her work was very loose in the way that since most of her work involved clay, there were remnants of fingerprints but the fingerprints were smoothed out. The was texture though among the edges of the fingerprints upon further examinations. There different pieces did show repetition, possibly her message to audience had to do with the recurring images. Her work took on average about a week to produce.

Content Analysis

Andrea’s work explored the concepts of a woman’s body during different times and the changes it might undergo when pregnant and tied them religion but with a twist. It did seem as though she explored sacrifice seeing that these soon to be mothers were crucified and had pain ridden faces.

Synthesis / My Experience

What I took away from this experience from an audience perspective was the artist’s message of questioning today’s religion. If today’s religion should actually accept mothers the way they are even if they might’ve conceived out of marriage or what ever reasons can be extended. Some thing the artist also wanted us to pick up on was for the audience to also question, what should be accepted as art as well.
