Read the comments

If you read the comments in the Cindy Sherman post below, you will be directed to the work of Ryan Trecartin. While I cannot say whether or not you will be glad you did, Megan Fancy, one of your class colleagues believes it is worth a peek.

  1. I must say that I'm not sure if I'm glad I clicked on the link for Ryan Trecartin's work :), but it sure was interesting and raised some other questions for me. Our discussions about the giant puppet and the other postings of robots you can rent for who knows what were really centered around words like "creepy," which linked to how lifelike they seemed. This, on the other hand, brings up the idea of the disfigurement of the human body and perhaps another obsession/fascination with things along the lines of mutilation and deformity. Trecartin's work provided a very strong contrast for me between the "creepy-ness" of the former robots and his sculptures and art, although they both provoke a similar uneasy but captivating feeling.
