Morgan Kairey’s Intellectual Profile

1. I am a junior and I am a Studio Arts major but I am not sure what my emphasis is yet.  I think my emphasis will be in painting, drawing, or graphic design.  I am taking Drawing Alternative Process/Materials and Painting one this semester.

2. I really enjoyed the Beauty CULTure exhibition at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles.  I saw this over Thanksgiving break.  It really showed how far people would go to feel beautiful.  I especially found the video piece shown very interesting.  It was also an interesting way of viewing portraits. http://www.annenbergspaceforphotography.org/exhibitions/beauty_culture.asp

3. I have been reading tons of funny memoirs lately.  I just finished reading Tina Fey’s book and Steve-O’s book.  I am currently reading Mindy Kaling’s book, “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?”  It’s a hilarious book about her life, her observations, and her drive to get to where she is today.

4. My main interests beside art are pop culture, new music, watching bad reality television, and hanging out with friends.

5. The blogs I check regularly are fashion blogs and gossip sites.  I check PerezHilton.com, honestlywtf.com, and koasttokoast.com regularly.

6. I went to the Spain this summer and we had happened to be there during the same time as the Gay Pride Parade in Madrid.  It was an incredible sight to see and was so much fun.  It was unlike anything I had ever seen before.  For those two days Madrid became a huge party and it was like the whole city was on holiday.

7. I recently read about the SOPA/PIPA event that led to the Internet blackout.  The whole event seems a little bizarre to me and blew my mind.

8. I’m not sure I can pinpoint a certain thought or idea that has really widened my intellectual horizon.  I think the combination of the classes I have taken and the experiences that I have gone through have broadened my intellectual horizon.

9. I have been to the MCA Denver briefly my freshman year of college.
