    Is anyone attending the open casting call? Last year I was VICIOUSLY snubbed after making it through to the final round of casting (where they're taping you for audition footage). Simon said my sculpture was interesting but my painting wasn't (the bulk of my portfolio was very traditional painting). WELL I'LL SHOW HIM THIS YEAR. I'll be yet again in line for hours and hours on Sunday, September 19th for the LA casting. Anyone planning to try out at any of the casting locations? Thoughts on season 1? Who wants a RJ shout out when I make it onto the show icon_biggrin.gif?

    As I told you quite some time ago, I think you are an extremely talented artists. They would be crazy not to have you on the show.

    Good luck with the audition. I'll be rooting for you!

    Thanks for the well wishes icon_biggrin.gif I need to find an RJ'er to spend the day with in LA while I'm up there.

    I wasn't blown away by Season 1, but considering the nature of the program I thought they handled the challenges well. Regardless of my chances of making it or not I'd like to see them switch up their approach to the art challenges. I thought too many were "k, do whatever you want". I'd like to see more specific guidelines and restrictions.

    I'm thinking about doing the Chicago auditions myself... Remember the "public art" challenge that engaged a space, that's more my line of work.

    aren't you afraid of becoming the Susan Boyle of art ? *a mused*

    I'll tackle the thoughts on season 1 ...

    I went from fascinated by Miles to annoyed by Miles in like a snap of the finger. As a non-artist, I always thought the creative process for art was a mystery, kind of like that artist in Heroes who would go into a trance and suddenly start to furiously draw. Work of Art pulled aside the curtain a bit for me. Most of the time, the artists had very ordinary ideas, but very occasionally there would be something inspired. I just wasn't buying what Miles was selling though.

    Miles annoyed the shit out of me... And I thought the girl should have won at the end. Her "carnivalesque" exhibit was pretty unique, contemporary, and fresh. But Miles was just plain annoying.

    Art making (fine art, as in, academic) is a language, and it's surprisingly cut-and-dry. Miles is a very typical example. I worked as a studio assistant for an artist and professor. Some of my duties included manufacturing her art pieces. They were her pieces, but I constructed them. And in the academic world they are still hers.

    Isn't "k, do whatever you want" pretty much the state of affairs today in art? What kind of guidelines and restrictions do you have in mind?
