I Recently read this article by Barry Sheridan and found it clear and consice, it’s a must read.
New year came and went, and in a blink of an eye february arrived, gosh time goes by so fast when you are busy. Between work, gym, quality time with my family, boyfriend and friends I have little time left.
I haven’t posted anything in a really long time, and I know I have promised over and over again that I will change that fact, that I will post more often and I end up not keeping those promises. So from now on I will no longer promise things. I guess that’s a better philosophy of life, discipline in personal proyects is something I desperetly need.
This week I’ve been doing some research for an interactive installation that I am planning to do. I have been immersing myself in color theory and color physics. I find the work (and life) of Neil Harbisson fascintating, he has definetly been a source of inspiration for me during this process since this particular installation has to do with color and sound.
It’s kind of sad to confess, but this is not a new proyect at all. I’ve had the idea and general thesis of it for years, but had failed to actually do the damn thing! Having ideas scribbled in notebooks is not the way to find personal realization. Can you tell I have been going through an existencialist crisis? I have not only developed a Peter Pan complex, but have successfully convinced myself that I had lost all personal drive while working for someone else. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my job, and I feel professional growth, but in a perosnal level I felt I was missing something. So here it is, my mid-february’s new year resolution: Talk less, do more.
I’ll leave a link below in case you are curious and want to know more about Neil Harbisson and his work, he embodies everything I wish to become someday.
I know this a totally unrelated post to animation or anything to do with the industry, but I wanted to share with you a song that I really like.
It’s by a mexican band called “Hello Seahorse” and it’s titled La Flotadera
Hope you like it as much as I do.
