Art evolves in various forms

Focusing on learning American Sign Language, preparing choreography for my last dance performance as a student at CSU San Marcos and working to keep up with my photography work and photojournalism has proven to be slightly more time consuming than I am willing to admit. Even when one project is completed it seems as though five more have taken its place. I am proud to say that I made it through my requirements in learning sign language, though I feel I need to expose myself to the culture far more in order to get rid of my nervous stuttering when I sign. Beyond that, I have been neck deep in developing my choreography for an April 30-May 1 performance I have been preparing for as a contemporary dance student.

A classmate of mine, whom I admire dearly for whom she is as a person and for her obvious talents in performance arts, came into the studio at the start of the year practicing her routine for a hula hoop competition with a light-up hula hoop. Ms. Cierra Potts was dancing along the dance for and I found myself staring. When she stopped I asked her if she might be interested in doing some light graffiti art photos with me while she did her routine. She had no idea what I was talking about but was open to trying something new.

Amidst all our rehearsals we managed to get together and create:

In the short hour we had to play with the lighting I brought with me we had some pretty amazing end results.  These are just a small sample of what came of Cierra’s first experience playing with light art photography.  I was so excited to see that she was having as much fun as I was and loved it just as much as I did.  I’m excited that I’ve found a subject that is willing to take the time to create these with me.  From dance, to light photography.
