Christina Binstock Intellectual Profile

1. Give some basic information about your studies and fields of interest.

Photography, is what i am most interested in. I love to use film, digital, ambrotypes, and other old school photography.

2. Describe an exhibition that you liked or found impressive. Tell us why. Please provide a link to a website, if possible.

Quinn Jacobson is a great photographer here in Denver and focuses on trying to photograph the “other” in his work. He works on photographing people who live outside the norm of our society. Quinn

3. Which books did you read of late (art, fiction, non-fiction)? Pick one and go into detail about it.

This past break I was reading “Lilly of the the Nile” the story is about Cleopatra’s daughter. It shows what her life may have been like living with Octavian Augustus.

4. What are your main interests besides art?

History!!!!!

5. Which blogs do you check regularly?

I don’t really.

6. Which cultural event has really impressed you lately? This can be a museum, a concert, or anything like that, but also a sports game (if you consider this a cultural event for which there are good reasons). Or anything I am not even thinking of … Again, tell us why.

Nothing really sorry.

7. Please describe briefly an article in a newspaper or a magazine that got you thinking lately. Reading online is fine, and what you introduce here does not have to be about art. If the respective article is available online, please link to it!

Censoring the internet what a load crap. It is spossed to be free. The government should never be allowed to Censor anything.

8. Please share with us a thought or an idea that really widened your intellectual horizon. Again, this must not be limited to the visual arts. If possible, give a source for this idea so that others know where to go to if they are interested.

Astronomy has always been something that I have look at and read about. It makes me look at everything and see it in a diffrent light.

9. Have you been to the Denver Art Museum, MCA Denver and BMoca Boulder? Describe one art object or a show you remember seeing.

Yes, I have been many time and have seen how the DAM displays its artifacts. The last time I was there I saw a Rembrandt for the fist time. I did see what all the fuss was about and a woman told me I needed to see a larger one.

If you haven’t done so yet, please upload a portrait of yours that will appear next to your future posts so that we all know who is speaking. You can upload an image if you go to your profile under users.
