Your story is our story. That was the tagline or catchphrase for our art exhibit. REFRAMED is our story shown through a contemporary medium. I was an exhibitor for the Multimedia Arts Festival Special Edition as part of my course in college. It happened last November 28-30 and was held at Green Sun building in Makati City.
my Instagram account! I might talk about my exhibit piece in full on a separate blog post soon.
Angelica, Rachel, Thea, Mariel, Nina.
Here are some artworks included in the exhibit! Many of these were made by my friends!
Angelica Regala. This artwork is based on a poem by F. Scott Fitzgerald. But it's not just any regular painting. It's actually printed as a lenticular image in stereoscopic 3D!
Mella Dumali and Etheline Tan. It's a stop-motion film about, well, the struggles of a right-brained. It's on of my faves because I can relate to it so much and I'm a huge fan of stop-motion films.
Timothy De Dios and Gabe Angeles
These are my friends Etheline, Bea, Hazel, Keith, and Mixi!
Robert Valdellon. With that photo and title, you'll probably get a hint at what it's about. But I assure you, it was a cool experience! (Although it was kinda hot inside haha)
Keith Montalbo and Manjean Faldas.
Mixi Ignacio! This was taken on the second day of our exhibit and we had to wear nicer clothes for the VIP Night. I recently collaborated with her for a video project called Hipster Battle.
It's our first collab ever and I'm looking forward to more because it's such a blast working with her! Even though I get cranky during the production, she maintains her calmness/remains the same which is just cray. Haha!
Here' are some snippets of our description: "Though different in terms of interests and fields of expertise, we find common ground in our love for art. We will always be labeled, measured, criticized and even be forced to reform to what others want us to be. But we are not dolls for anyone to alter and modify. We are ourselves, and who we are is who we choose to be."
I also made a vlog of the event which you can find below. Since there's so much stuff to see, I've uploaded more exclusive photos on my Facebook page! There are more awesome artworks to see there!
