So, it’s time for the ubiquitous “what now?” post.
I’m already inspired with ideas that would be great for next Artwalk…but I won’t be participating.
My 365 days (more or less) of making stuff here at the Brewery are up. I signed a one year lease last May to conduct my experimental year of artfuckery, and that year is drawing to a close and my lease is up. I’m moving on from Artfuckery to pursue a Ph.D. in information science, which was my long-term plan throughout this whole endeavor. I only ever intended to be here for a year, but part of me really wishes I was staying. I’ve really enjoyed my time at the Brewery and my artfucking around, and it’s even possible I’ll end up back here someday, making more stuff. I know now that whatever I do and where ever I end up, I’ll need space to make things and experiment at artfuckery and share my creations with others.
Since this blog was meant to chronicle my year-long experiment, I won’t be keeping it up to the extent I have been in the past. But since a part of me will always be making stuff, this seems like an appropriate place to chronicle future projects, even if it’s not as detailed as before. I’d still like to post about the pieces I didn’t finish in time for Artwalk, as soon as I get around to actually finishing them. And I certainly have many, many more projects and ideas up my sleeves. It may not be as often, but you haven’t heard the last from me.
Off to new adventures in artfuckery…
