Instagram the home of my art work and a few personal photos, 2012 - 2020.
Hello Internet I’m archiving/deleting/disabling my Instagram today!
I haven’t regularly checked Instagram in years. Basically it was a place to post my art and share that with friends. The way I share content has changed and I’m no longer interested in being part of Instagram / Facebook. Take control of your data friends!
This post serves as an archive of every art thing I’ve ever posted on Instagram. By the nature of publishing this media on my blog it is backed-up via git, in my control, and does not rely on big tech. Another small step of independence.
I started using Instagram Freshmen year of college, October 15, 2012. Most posts centred around my first studio project which focused on tectonics.
University of Wisconsin Milwaukee’s architecture program was an absolute blast. From being a member
of the studio community, to the countless hours creating things, to the stressful critiques it was a
pivotal chapter in my life. Perhaps I’ll write more about it someday. Until then, if you ever get
the chance to go or send your child I highly recommend it.
Helped a friend with a 3d print then made a rendering from it.
Also got into to helping thesis students on bigger models.
The first studio final project was a butterfly center that used wind and thermodynamics to create exhibits.
The second was a school built into the landscape.
rest of college
My later college years things got increasingly weird. I was a research assistant at one point
working on models and procedurally generated stuffs. Ton of fun. My final project was a video
game exploring the relationship of digital / physical in Milwaukee. I played split screen with
a critiquer in final crit.
