This is my BFA thesis work! Sorry it’s taken so long to upload. The titles appear when you click on the images.

Loves Me, Loves Me Not is a series of ten 16x24” Chromaluxe prints of scanned artificial flowers, some of which were moved as the light passed underneath for a glitching effect. Much of the research for this project focused on the folklore and meanings of flowers. The end result are images with striking glossiness, vibrancy, and beauty that evoke a sense of otherworldliness. With the dark background printed on a highly reflective surface, the image becomes difficult to enter. There is a physical separation between the natural world and the world we seem to be looking at. The surface of the image then functions as a plane: a portal looking into a domain of artificial perfection, full of beautiful colors and textures. With this in mind, the glitched flowers convey a sense of this perfect world touching the plane of the portal; reaching out to our natural world of imperfections.

12:30 | Thesis 

 Today involved a lot of research, some critical writing and a lot of black post-its. I can’t get enough of them!

I have to say I am enjoying research more and more. Architectural theory is not a common field of study in my university, most people choose a practical project for graduation. 

 Also, Manolo (the cactus) says Hola!


After months of many late nights, KPOP & Legend of Zelda LPs, studiomates beatboxing, and a lot of Chinese food orders, I finished my illustration thesis! I illustrated a short film based on a folktale called “The Seven-Colored Flower,” but I changed a lot of the story elements to make it more personal. 


anonymous asked:

How do I write a thesis statement?

Here is some information taken from Purdue OWL:

1. Determine what kind of paper you are writing:

  • An analytical paper breaks down an issue or an idea into its component parts, evaluates the issue or idea, and presents this breakdown and evaluation to the audience.
  • An expository (explanatory) paper explains something to the audience.
  • An argumentative paper makes a claim about a topic and justifies this claim with specific evidence. The claim could be an opinion, a policy proposal, an evaluation, a cause-and-effect statement, or an interpretation. The goal of the argumentative paper is to convince the audience that the claim is true based on the evidence provided.

If you are writing a text that does not fall under these three categories (e.g., a narrative), a thesis statement somewhere in the first paragraph could still be helpful to your reader.

2. Your thesis statement should be specific—it should cover only what you will discuss in your paper and should be supported with specific evidence.

3. The thesis statement usually appears at the end of the first paragraph of a paper.

4. Your topic may change as you write, so you may need to revise your thesis statement to reflect exactly what you have discussed in the paper.

Thesis Statement Examples

Example of an analytical thesis statement:

An analysis of the college admission process reveals one challenge facing counselors: accepting students with high test scores or students with strong extracurricular backgrounds.

The paper that follows should:

  • Explain the analysis of the college admission process
  • Explain the challenge facing admissions counselors

Example of an expository (explanatory) thesis statement:

The life of the typical college student is characterized by time spent studying, attending class, and socializing with peers.

The paper that follows should:

  • Explain how students spend their time studying, attending class, and socializing with peers

Example of an argumentative thesis statement:

High school graduates should be required to take a year off to pursue community service projects before entering college in order to increase their maturity and global awareness.

The paper that follows should:

  • Present an argument and give evidence to support the claim that students should pursue community projects before entering college.
