I’M NOT FUNNY
& I MAKE STUFF UP


My name is Carina and I make pictures (in many different ways) and write stuff, and I am back in school for some reason, pursuing a research masters on art, theory, and philosophy. No, no one forced me into it. I did it to myself.

(It seems like I like John Berger a lot.)









Arts & Letters

Ingress/Egress



Then it can be said: the visible exists because it had already been seen.
— John Berger


Fragments

Fresh Cut,
New Blood


Exercise 5: Cut out one particular shape or pattern. Using different materials, colors, textures and transparency, continue cutting out that one particular shape; you can repeat the same shape in varying sizes. Collage and layer the shapes onto a piece of paper.





Landscapes & Territories

ORBITING THE LAST KNOWN SURROUNDINGS


What is the space one used to inhabit like? What can these tangential bits of information do to complete a picture?

Cartography

But where do we put it?

A series, forever


“What can grow on this site of loss?”
— John Berger






Whine & Cheese

I write a lot about art, pop culture and mass media, music, and their many different intersections.

Sometimes, I overshare.
