Semester 1 mentor

Joshua Meyer

Cambridge, MA



First meeting with Joshua Meyer at the MFA

*recommended artist to research

*recommended DA DA movement (proceeds surrealism)

*shared my current work in progress

-no one liners then your done, need more layers of thought to your work

-politics could be a starting point but not the ending point of your concept

-more process, more layers, more background

-people should want to look at it years from now

-there should be no easy answer, stick the viewer in the middle

-give enough openings to involve viewer

-power of storytelling, mix media to explore this




Second meeting with mentor in my studio

-went over current work and new ideas
