TABULA RASA extends another week

Originaly TABULA RASA project had planed to end today. Following the plan, I (Michiko) leave the project today, but Meghann and Ali continue working on it for another week. 

In this collaboration project, my approach was to create a series of holes that perforate the walls to transgress the boundary between inside and outside. Through the accumulation of these small but impactful gestures, I investigate the role of boundaries as persistent obstacles created by the binary relationships that divide art/life, masculinity/femininity, East/West and high/low. Through this process of erasure I strives to rejoin the divided and propose a monistic space.

It was very interesting experience for me to work with other students collaboratively. I lerned the reality of artist's life in the U.S.. It also gave me an opportunity to rethink of my own exhibition, Shojoholic and its relation to TABULA RASA.
