Oh the memories that are escaping forgotten boxes.

I bought this while in NYC around 12 years ago. Everyone in my travel party got a nasty stomach virus within 24 hours of arriving. They told me to roam the city on my own for the day. Of course, I went straight to the MOMA and then to Paper Source. :)

I decided to learn Spanish last November.
I missed a few days during the move, but aside from that, I've studied every single day. Normally I talk to myself in French. Now I'm talking to myself in Spanish. I'm not sure how I feel about this. Of course, when I'm tired, I'm speaking something more like Franish... or Spanench? Lol

Now, if only I could find the equivalent of Champs-Elysées (French) for Spanish. Then, I could take it to the next level. Anyone know of anything like that?

Today I pulled an unfinished painting out of a long lost box.

I never paint or shoot flowers. I think I was trying to paint some happiness into my nightmare. Part of me wants to finish it. Part of me wants to leave it exactly as it is... a snapshot.

I was obsessed with the light patterns on the floor in my apartment in LA. I walked out on my new balcony this evening and saw this. Oh my.

Interesting locative media project by one of my students. 

He's interested in surveillance and tracking. If you click the link on the latest blog post, you'll see a random piece of data. You can keep "playing" and get different results (although it was a little glitchy for me just now). Today I got a Rick Astley video! haha

If you're at the UTD campus, stop by my office and scan the QR code. ATC 3.609

He's mapping all of this as well, so it will be interesting to see what data he ends up with, depending on whether or not people allowed him to see their location.

Great capture by Sandro Mori. Thanks for the correct photographer +Nancy Levan. This is why I rarely share others' images. Ugh.

+Christi Nielsen I've seen it before. It's all over pinterest, Tumblr, and tons of blogs. Kolos probably has no idea where it came from so I doubt it was intentional theft. It's a shame when the internet co-opts images like it's nothing. Anyway, it's a great photo.

This is one of my favorite things I ever did with film.

I took 4x5 sheet film and ran it through the chemistry to remove all the silver. Yes, I suppose I could've used transparency sheets, but no. I wanted the whole process. ;-) 

Then I tested different paint pens to see which colors would produce which shades of gray in the dark room. I think I limited myself to 4 colors plus black (which would produce white) and nothing (which would produce black). Think posterization in Photoshop.

Next, I found portraits of famous women and drew them with these paint pens on the sheet film. Then I created a print (enlargement) in the dark room with that "negative". 

I love the marks. The black is actually not grainy like this. It's a solid, deep black. But I took a quick shot of this in low light with my phone. 

The unpacking continues...

Story
Tagline
Artist. I tried to contain myself, but I escaped.
Introduction
  • I'm an artist working mostly with digital (photography, video, etc), but I'm known to paint on occasion (when I want to throw the computer out the window).
  • More formally...  Christi Nielsen is a multimedia artist who works with photography, video, and new media. Her work using mobile devices was shown at the Dallas Museum of Art, the Dallas Contemporary, and at the George Pompidou Centre in Paris. Nielsen directed inter.sect Art Collective, a group of artists exploring new media and digital exhibition spaces. 
  • I teach Photography and Emerging Media and Communication at the University of Texas at Dallas.
  • I shoot fine art that deals with social commentary, but I also shoot interiors/real estate and travel.
  • And then there's sass. Gotta have that. I decided there is only so much crazy I can take before I have to start blogging about it. Delusions of Grandeur
Bragging rights
I am my own heroine. According to my mother, I was cool from Day 1.

Sam is awesome. I just moved to the area and had to find a new dry cleaners, which is always maddening. This place didn't have very many reviews, but they were good, so I decided to try them out. Sam talks to everyone, so you might have to wait a few extra seconds. When I returned for my clothes a few days later, he didn't ask for my ticket or even my name. He remembered it, and pulled my ticket and my clothes. I was shocked. The prices were very affordable, and my clothes were clean. I'll be back, Sam!
