BOOK OF THE DAY: FRANCESCA WOODMAN FROM D.A.P

Even though Francesca Woodman was a little-known twenty-two-year-old RISD graduate at the time of her death, post-humous celebrations have unearthed her as one of the most captivating figures of 20th-century photography.  A spectral and anachronistic presence with her unruly Edwardian bouffant, heavy-lidded eyes, and old-fashioned prairie girl wardrobe, Woodman’s self-portraits portray her as more of a 19th- century gothic novel heroine than 1970s American adolescent. Usually depicting Woodman crouching, hovering, or preternaturally fading into her decrepit environs – floral wallpaper peeling and wooden floorboards bare – her brief body of work is a glimpse into the psyche of a young woman artist trying on her sexuality, exorcising her demons, and first wielding the scepter of artist. Divorced from knowledge of Woodman’s ultimate demise by suicide in 1981, the work is inspired and eerily empowering. Paired with knowledge of Woodman’s ultimate fate, the work is a tale about the pains of being too tapped in.  

 

Edited by SFMOMA’s photographic curator Corey Keller – and released on the eve of SFMOMA’s Francesca Woodman retrospective – this spectacular volume from D.A.P sheds new light on Woodman’s oft-debated oeuvre. Keller does an excellent job of reframing the heavily-mythologized artist as a regular human whose works were more the result of adolescent experimentation than explicit message. Trailing Woodman’s output from her freshman year at RISD in 1975 to her demise in the L.E.S in 1981 – with stints in Italy and at the McDowell Artists Colony in New Hampshire in between – this monograph features never-before-seen works and expository essays from Keller, Jennifer Blessing and Julia Bryan-Wilson. Listed on American Photo’s books of the year list, this book is an important edition to any photography book collection.

D.A.P - Tell Me Your Wish (Genie) SNSD cover

Annyeong Haseo! so this my friend, he’s a fan of SNSD and made this cover, hope ya’ll like it :D

YYYYEEEEEEAAAAAHHHHH

OKAY SO SUNNYJESSE AND I HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR MONTHS ON A PROJECT CALLED THE D.A.P AND IT IS JUST A LIVING HELL.

AND TODAY, AFTER MONTHS OF HARD WORK AND WASTING MY WEEKENDS GOING TO SCHOOL TO WORK ON IT, WE. FINISHED. TODAY. AT. 5:32 PM.

YYYYYYEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

And tomorrow it’s gonna get judged by a panel of professional animators so…hopefully that’ll go well and…yeah.

The project was basically to make a 3-5 minute animation using After Effects and Photoshop CS4.

Sunnyjesse and I made a 1-2 minute animation, heres the summary:

There were 2 dogs, Gaho and Tramp, sitting in a park with the famous K-Pop singer, G-Dragon drinking a magical pineapple ramune that suddenly turned them into humans. Now they must figure out how to get home, along the way Gaho finds out that G-Dragon replaces him with a new shar-pei, Prince. Prince is a stuck up, snotty, black shar-pei dog that makes sure that Gaho never turns back into a dog. Now these 2 dogs must figure out a way to get Prince out of the way and get back home.

OKAY THAT’S NOT THE SUMMARY, IT’S JUST THE SUMMARY OF THE ORIGINAL IDEA. HERE’S THE NEW ONE:

G-Dragon takes Gaho for a walk eventually encountering Tramp, Nahomy’s dog, and is going to take care of him. G-Dragon drinks a magical pineapple ramune which accidentally spills and the two dogs drink it, turning them into humans. Now Gaho and Tramp must figure out a way to get home.

Yep. That’s it.

WHO CURR, NO1CURR CUZ WE’RE DONE.
