When the IMA team returned from their travels to Rome and Venice, they spent a few minutes sharing their thoughts about the experience on video. Although a couple of their voices were missing, a few consistent themes seemed to surface about their travels. A few technical problems with this entry but, hopefully you will enjoy the student impressions. Look for the second portion of this piece (Reflections part 2)!
Reflections and First Impressions: Rome and Venice
About CarolLocation: Indianapolis, Indiana, United States Works In: Audience Engagement at the Indianapolis Museum of Art Interests: Painting, reading and jewelry making My favorite kind of movies: Comedy, documentary films, "sappy" love stories and romantic films and some action films. Really good horror films tend to make my heart race so I often avoid them. Favorite Movies: "The Art of the Steal," "You've Got Mail," "Poltergeist" (This movie really was scary when it first came out - yes, really!) Favorite Music: Definitely eclectic taste in music - "old school" music (please don't ask how old), Jazz, R & B, some Hip Hop and I also like Classical music (as in Bach and Mozart). Favorite Food: My taste in food varies, I love both boiled and fried plantain because they provide the body with a lot of iron, curried chicken, hand-made pizza (and many other Italian dishes). Eat fruit and veggies whenever I feel the need and enjoy Indian and Ethiopian food from time to time.
What I hope to learn from this project: I hope to experience Italy and the Biennale remotely! It will be great fun to work with our Indy student host Alberto as we try to envision the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of this historical place. Can't wait to get the first message from our teams from Ponce and Indy – Ready, set, ... Wait for it…..!
