Brownieeeee Box!

So a week ago my dad gave me some old things from my oma's which included a super 8 camcorder a Canonet rangefinder and the one I seem to be using mostly is the old brownie hawkeye.

I've developed a roll already and have purchased some more film to take pictures with. So far after the first trial run, I feel more comfortable using it. What I like the most about it is that the camera is super easy, and gives quite nice results as long as you keep it still in lower light conditions. So I got a 160 speed colour film and the same 400 speed b/w for the next round. I will have to post them as well in the future. But for now this is what I have to offer.

Stream of Consciousness

Stream of consciousness, or automatic writing, is what most surrealist artists used this method to gain access to their subconscious mind and let flow a truth. I did some of it right when I first got my typewriter, then had it laying around the house where a roommate noticed and commented on it. So I began last night to do some more. I have been doing something I would say similar to it with my typewriter and thought I would share. I may go through it more intently sometime this week and see what I can get out of it.

A new thing.

I've been drawing more than I usually do and here's what I've been coming up with. I've mostly found a new kind of image I like, and that is super geometric figures, such as squares and variations of squares.

I feel bad for the adobe creative suite on my computer. It's been getting NO attention since school ended. Just a couple photoshop uses here and there. Is it at all possible for computer programs to have feelings?

Mind Diddler.

Some drawings I have done in the past couple days.

Another thing to add, is the new acquisition of a late 60's typewriter. It is a Hermes 3000 that is estimated to be worth $800. Thanks to Value Village I was able to get it for a measly $30. It works great and I am in love with it. I must name her!!
