I need your help! / by Christina Rosalie

First of all, a little bit of giddiness: I must just have pause here to say how THRILLED I am to be in an MFA program.... To have weekly artistic assignments in multiple mediums I have never explored. To be engaged in daily discussions about how ideas and words and images shape who we are. YES. Indeed. It's been such a long time coming and it feels incredibly incredible to be here finally. So awesome. Now that that is out of the way, because you are all reflective and brilliant and generous and truly amazing, I have a favor to ask. I need your help. 5 minutes of your time and a little bit of your brain to be exact....

One of my first assignments is to explore some ideas around design--and to create some type of presentation based on that exploration. I've decided that because my art and writing has come to life here on this blog through my interaction with you--that I'd like to ask you a few questions and then turn your answers int a super cool mind map representing how you collectively think about the answers to these questions.

I need your info by Friday at the latest...All that is need is a one or two sentence response to each of the following questions. (You can leave a question blank too, if you want..)

What do you get by being a contributor? My undying gratitude--and a a glimpse at the final product (if you'd like.)

UPDATED: Thank you to everyone who contributed. I can't wait to figure out how to represent your awesome responses. xoxo!
