Darlene Schaper Interview, Part Two!
Guess who has two thumbs and figured out how to use video editing software this weekend? This girl!!! I finally sat down to edit the video footage that we took of Darlene during her interview, and I think it turned out pretty good, seeing as how I've never edited a single second of video before. This video interview describes Darlene's art - her subject matter, her inspiration, and process. Darlene discusses her use of items gathered from the Goodwill bins as a way of recycling and identifying the waste problems of our society. You'll also get to see Nefertiti and Bigfoot! If you missed it, you can read part one of Darlene's interview on the Work It page here at Brainy Girls - she discusses her career as an artist and gives some good advice for those wanting to pursue a career or studies in art. I'm very happy that Darlene took the time to talk with us about her art, which has some incredible messages about the state of our world today: our waste production, the relationship between our ecological footprint and animals, and the benefits of recycling. Thanks so much, Darlene! Keep us posted on what you're up to in the future!
