For this website, I wanted to create a place for people to share notes. There is the ability to create and register an account in order to login and create your own notes. The user can look at other’s notes and edit the notes they have created.

This event took place Friday, April 17th at Corning Glass Museum in the New Contemporary Art and Design Wing. The museum is presenting the artwork of various glassmakers within this space. The white walls allow for the focus to be on the artwork. Specifically a piece called Continuous Mile by Liza Lou.
This piece was made in the Republic of South Africa, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal and the United States from 2006 – 2008 and is made out of glass beads, cotton and thread. This piece, despite having a team of Zulu women working on it with the artists, took over a year to make. It is a stacked rope of glass beads that runs a mile long and is made with over 4.5 million black beads.

It comes to a point where they are unrecognizable as musical notes. Continue reading

Everything turned out to work however, it was disappointing not being able to find a way to taper the line.
