As I think more and more about what I want to do with this space, I realize that I do want to have a space for the things I love - art history stuff, academic stuff. I've never known how that was going to take shape, but I feel so familiar with the bones of Dreamwidth, built (and improved/innovated) as it seems to be on LJ's open source code, so maybe now's the time.

Things posted here may start out as placeholders and then get fleshed out a little more. I'm really, really burned out on academia right now, as much as I still love it. I'm in the middle of a spring quarter and took the hardest midterm of my life last Friday. It kind of broke me, but in thinking about it I realize that it kind of remade me as well. Still, I feel wrung out and unable to focus - though that might have more to do with the fact that I'm sick, too.

I'm not even sure I'll keep this name. I've been Kill for so long, but maybe it's time to start writing as ME, at least about the things that I love. Still, there's a certain freedom to partial anonymity. I'm not the sort that really likes a lot of responsibility (another reason I'm sort of burned out on academia) - I just want to love things and...well, not leave them, but be able to move on to other things if I want to.

We'll see.

In the meantime, here's a look at Titus Kaphar, who is the inaugural Gwendolyn Knight & Jacob Lawrence fellow at the Seattle Art Museum. I have not yet been to see his work, but I want to place these video here because I am fascinated by his process.
