Keychains for Smiles

Andrea McCallum

I went through my craft and art supply totes and found some shrink sheets and keychains that would both be great for artist multiples! I wanted to make multiples with text that would make people smile if I were to give them out or leave them for people to find.

My original idea for this was a screen printed bookmark printed in thicker lettering
in rainbow ombre or in bright colours.

Bland Reruns

Every Sunday, I cook enough food for a week. I enjoy this practice very much. However, I then have to microwave every meal after that, which I hate. It has always been strange to me that waiting a few minutes for a meal feels so much longer if I stand by the microwave while the food is reheating. There are many juxtapositions in this practice as the convenience does not necessarily outweigh the boredom.

This video concept became more relevant during this period of quarantine. Although I think about it often, it has become very apparent how much we are used to being stimulated.

Personality Duet

Andrea McCallum

For this piece, I recorded myself driving home from work. I listened to music in earbuds, so the resulting audio was my voice as I sang along and reacted to various other drivers on the road. From this recording, I created a duet between my two driving personalities. This idea came from the fact that my car is where I take out my aggression as well as where I feel at peace.
