Today is my second day inside the ICI and my first day as an Earth Cabinet Intern. I feel excited and maybe a little jittery from drinking coffee.
I’m Brittany. I have been out of art school at UCLA for a year now and have spent 2014 teaching art to kids in Los Angeles. I am interested in empowering students through visual art and a heightened awareness of the world around them. I hope that one day there will be arts education for all K-12 students.
Whether it is walking to the convenience store or flying to another country, I love seeing places, new and old. Two of my favorite things to do are people watching and photographing objects that have been left on the street. I also love painting and color.
As the Earth Cabinet Intern, I will be spending a lot of time with Earth, Dirt, Soil, et al, which means I’ll be dreaming up stories of the places where this material originates. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to visit these places as well.
For now, I’m excited to begin a meticulous and meditative process in this unique space on Robertson Blvd.
More to come.
