Places and Characters

Space Reflection

The selection of the space was pretty easy for or group to choose from. On our way out leaving the Brick, I told my group that I had to go to Moka Joka for work and that I thought it would be a good location to choose. The first benefit of choosing the space is that it’s less than a five-minute walk from the Birck, second, it had a lot of objects that we could use when creating our list. Once the idea was proposed it was pretty easy to fit our daily practices to work with the location. Rosemary’s daily practice is drawing superheroes and interviewing people, Taniths is braiding hair, Taneyashas is listening to music and mine is crocheting. All of which can be done and had been done at the Moka Joka.

Character Reflection

 In contrast to the time it took for my group and I to choose a location the creation of my character took me a long time to come up with. Moka Joka is chock-full of items that a viewer could be inspired to draw from. At first, I thought it would be cool to come up with a character that was like a combination of a bunch of different graffiti but that ended up looking too chaotic. In the end, I went with a simple design but a graphic look since I still wanted to include the graffiti (something that is very prevalent at the Joka) in the piece.
