My husband heard this song and became obsessed with it.  Of course when I heard it I also became obsessed.  Enjoy.

This was the first thing I saw when I pulled up the reporting program for work. Very fitting with how I felt entering my graduate program last year.

Horrifyingly Beautiful!

Check out my latest bog entry titled “Quiet”.  I would love your input on it since it’s still a work in progress.  Thanks!

"Man cannot remake himself without suffering, for he is both the marble and the sculptor." -Alexis Carell

Why should we have to remake ourselves to fit an impossible standard of beauty?  Just a thought.

For your Friday viewing pleasure.  This always makes me smile, and it gets stuck in your head.  : )

The Town was Paper

Multimedia by KBovey

My artwork is based upon the novel Paper Towns by John Green and represents the fragility of the written word and the fandoms built around them. A fandom is a kingdom or domain of fans that come together to discuss and empathise with the characters in a novel or film.

Viewers are invited to interact with the sculpture by moving the buildings and houses and also use the template provided to construct their own paper building to add to the town, therefore participating in the expansion and evolution of fandoms as a whole.

“The town was paper but the memories were not.” – John Green

I would like to thank the authors for their amazing books that have inspired this work, in no particular order: cassandraclare, fishingboatproceeds, theartofnotwriting, Suzzane Collins and JK Rowling.

I know this isn’t a game, but I want to play this game.

Wow this is beautiful.

Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.
