Sometimes I worry about projects I have created digitally. I always try to have a tangible connection, for I worry about my art, in the end being nothing. This sensation, a new age horror vacui, is something I think about every day. It scares me to think about how many beautiful creations can be reduced to a series of ones and zeroes. What if one of those ones or zeroes changed places with another? Just two tiny digits in a seemingly endless stream...could they really make that much of a difference? Or could they make a huge difference? Could they be the difference between an elegant animation and a Youtube parody? The difference between a thesis and a facebook status? Between libraries and homework reminders?
Sometimes, I just think about things. I like thinking about potential, and the things we create and the beautiful relationships we seem to form by chance. I don't think it's by chance, though.
I'm sure that by week three, I will be dreading Mondays, solely because my days will go from 8am til 10pm. At least I can look forward to my classes. I really enjoyed all of them. The liberal art classes seem to be really interesting, and I already have projects in mind for my studio classes.
Tomorrow I have a fibers class that I have been looking forward to since last year. There are so many processes I want to learn that will only help make my animations stronger. At least, that's the plan.
