Week 2: Nichole Speciale

If You Wish to Make an Apple Pie from Scratch by Nichole Speciale

If You Wish to Make an Apple Pie from Scratch by Nichole Speciale

This piece is hauntingly beautiful– ’nuff said. The name seems a little meaningless and doesn’t seem to match the status of the art work as a whole, but oh wells, I think Nicole might have a better explanation to support her decision-making.

What made this piece unique was that it played a hauntingly beautiful sound– like a bell created from our own imagination, seems a little surreal too. The sound makes me feel a little schizophrenic because I thought I was imagining hearing bell sounds, and sometimes I do when I space out. It is real though, which makes it even more fabulous. I don’t know how she created this, but it required some critical thinking– science.

In most art, we all know that the artist is implementing creative thinking, but almagamating criticality and creativity– now that’s something. Nichole created something unusual, whether it is appropiate or not, it is in the eye of the beholder. Reading her artist statement was quite difficult to understand. I still don’t understand her work.

Let’s talk about this art work above. What do you see? I see like two worlds combining(I wouldn’t say smashing and here is why) because a bell can only make a sound if something hits it. The bell-like sound that emmitted was not a harsh tone but a nice, passive tone that sounds just as beautiful as the wind, meaning that the two worlds combining together breaking its boundaries to merge into something more beautiful, such as merging critical thinking and creative thinking to create uniqueness or just pieces of parts to create a delicious, yummy pie.
