Appreciating the CCP Artworks Part 2

And the continuation begins! Take note that some of the artworks here are similar to the few ones in part 1. Again, I want to say sorry for the incomplete credentials of the artworks under this post. It was a mistake to not list the names and artists of the masterpieces. I believe that having the credentials would help in adding more aesthetic value to the artworks listed here. Without further ado, let us appreciate more artworks!

An artwork from PROMDI || Ramsid Labe

I was amazed by how creative Ramsid Labe is. In this sculpture, he used normal ballpen cases that people would throw when it is deemed useless. The piece looked life-like to the point that it looked like it would move any minute to terminate us because we were annoying little kids in the museum! Truly, I can say that Mr. Labe did a great job in making a robotic mutant with normal pen cases. Kudos!

You Can Tell Me Now from myth || Jippy Pascua and Dennese Victoria

Myth was a refreshing exhibit because the artists combined unique artworks with deep meanings behind it. On that day, I found myself staring at the displays and I left myself to wonder about the beauty behind the artworks with in-depth meanings.

Indeed, visiting CCP was a beautiful experience. I was lost in admiring the hanged and displayed masterpieces. It was a magical day because I felt like I belonged with the artists who created the wonderful artworks. Another thing that excited me was that CCP provided us a pamphlet of information about the other museums that kids like us can visit when we have time. I saw ideal museums in the pamphlet and I would love to visit them all if I can!

Of course, I would like and love to visit CCP again someday and experience the burning passion that I have for visual arts.

Have you read the first part of this post? Here it is: Appreciating the CCP Artworks.

Appreciating the CCP Artworks

Before the first semester of AY 2016 – 2017 began, my two best friends and I went to the Cultural Center of the Philippines. For me, CCP has always been so flawless and I know that it will be like that forever until I reach the age of 120. When we came, there were less people, to my surprise! It was a dream come true because I hate crowded places (aka I hate people, just kidding!) or maybe, I liked it because it was something new. I have always visited crowded museums and CCP being less crowded on that day, made it refreshing and exciting! After traveling on the busy roads of Manila, we got on time! So we went inside and sought to appreciate the displayed works of art. The beauty of the masterpieces did not fail to mesmerize and amaze me. I’ll try my best to provide the names and artists of the artworks listed below. Also, my deepest apologies for not being able to have the credentials of the other artworks!

An artwork from PROMDI || Irma Lacorte

Irma Lacorte’s masterpiece was actually an interactive display. The artwork, I assumed, tasked us to create our own Anahaw balls, but alas! My companions and I failed to create a single ball. Instead of creating a beautiful  ball, I created a short braid out of three Anahaw strings to have a sense of fulfilment.

I am cringing right now because it would have been better if I provided the complete names and artists of the masterpieces (deeply mortified). This post will be continued in another post because continuing it in this post would make it long (my mouth and fingers are now filled with the word “post” after that sentence). Keep in touch!

The Beach

This post makes it look like I have lots of time to splash in the waves of the beaches in our country, but the truth is, I still have classes until May (and I do not have the money, okkk). So I grabbed the opportunity to embrace the time that I had in the beach when I went to one of my best friend’s debut.

In this photo, I like how the tiny boat is facing towards us + the lights trying to escape from the tiny gaps between the clouds.

It was surprising to know that this floating rest house can move because I thought it was static.

A candid scene in a beautiful place is a beautiful view to photograph. It gives story to a blank picture.

Indeed, going to the beach with the right people was a fun experience and we’re aiming to do this again someday. However, reality is crawling on my doorway. I still have to finish few requirements to ace this semester!

A Great Reunion

On the 17th of December, I got the chance to reunite with amazing friends. Friends who I mingled with during my first year in the Adventist University of the Philippines; we reunited in Enchanted Kingdom! Generalization: the trip was fun and exhilarating! Well, I was with lovely people (human beings who understand my craziness) and there were exciting rides in EK! I cannot see why it should have been a dull day!

Our first ride was the Flying Fiesta!

Found an aesthetic inside Rialto 4D! Yes, 4D! The progressive change was welcoming!

After few rides, (more…)

Rummaging

Look what I found!

I was cleaning and organizing the stuff in my memory card (and I have hid and ignored them until now), and I found few interesting photos. I found three photos of me and my high school friends during my first day at UP; I immediately uploaded them so they won’t be stored to nothing. Thus, plus points to productivity! Lastly, I stumbled on a photo which reminded me of the contest that I joined last summer, which was Artwork’s 6th t-shirt design contest. I didn’t win, but the experience was worth the risk! I thought I was not going to finish the shirt on time, but I did! For me, that was already a milestone. Also, realizing that this thing happened months ago made me reflect on how fast time passes. We are going to welcome October this week, and it’s nearly Christmas!
