Thank you Lynn and Zoe!!!

Dear Zoe,

Thank you so much for this fun and at times, challenging semester. I have never learned so much about podcasts and videos and would have never imagined doing creative works. Like most of my  classmates, I thought I was done with art long time ago. However, you taught us the beauty and treasure of art. Art is not just limited to visual art, words, and theater, etc. but art is almost anything that is unique to us. What struck me particularly was when you gave us your “speech” in the end of class when you said it was your responsibility to better the world the way you feel best. Well, I agree! Our world is filled with so many garbage and useless things but if we all create something that is important to us, the world would be better.

Dear Lynn,

Thank you so much for your help. Your instructions on how to put up podcasts and your guidance in all the technological skills necessary for this class really helped! Also, I was glad you came with us not just to help with technology, but you also came to look at the galleries with us. You made time for our questions and you always did your best to solve our problems. Thanks again!

3. Friend’s Love

It took me a while to figure out how to put all these different forms of artworks into one post. Like I said in class, all the projects that I did revolved around the same theme–Imperfect love. Many of my friends are now looking for their soul mate and possibly future spouse. But love is unpredictable. Sometimes the person you love doesn’t love me or sometime you don’t love the one who loves you.
I did the first project as a response the tragic story of Romeo and Juliet and a Chinese legend, The Butterfly Lovers. In both stories, the couple love each other but cannot be with each other due to family rivalry. I was very confident about my painting skills but I didn’t put much feeling into the paintings–they were merely illustrations to a story.
Then I wrote a Chinese poem on teenager unrequited love. Writing is a form of art that I feel not so confident in. I am never a good writer. I took me a long time to figure out how to rhyme. But I forgot the fact that most people wouldn’t understand it. So I did a short story to explain the poem.
The last project was the most challenging one. I’d never done anything like this before. I was experimenting a new medium that I totally felt insecure. Moreover, acting was difficult to all of us because we needed to put more of ourselves into it. This work is very personal and emotional which made me feel uncomfortable looking at myself in the MV. Thanks to Jessica who spent two hours to learn a few dance steps and Wilson who translated the lyrics that he didn’t really understand. We made it happen. We stepped out of our own shell and together accomplished something extraordinary.
It was just amazing how I went from a form of art that I am familiar with to something completely foreign to me but still managed to express the same theme. After all, I was trying to convey the idea that to fine the person who can hold your hand to the end is very difficult. So if you think that you’ve found your soul mate, keep it up and don’t let him/her go.
