Mferry - Reflection

​For my third quarter the primary focus of my quarter was on spray painting, with a budding interest in fashion design.
    Having enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania as a Young Scholar, I was given many things from the University; the right to visit the many prestigious libraries, facilities, and events on campus. More importantly, I had to obtain a student ID card to fully utilize these unique components of my experience at Penn. Having a Penn ID card allowed me to fully utilize all of the resources at my potential and.. obtaining spray paint. My ID card for Penn didn't include my birthdate, but just stated that I was an undergraduate at the University. Seeing this as an opportunity to utilize rights and activities that minors aren't legally able to take part in, I decided to buy some spray paint, as spray painting and graffiti have always been a form of art I have had an appreciation for, after seeing Keith Haring's mural in South Philly.
    Though I have a great appreciation of the late Keith Haring and the icons that he created, I wanted to create something unique that would have an association with myself, while sustaining my own originality. I did not want to do a tag or something of that sort, as I have no appreciation for vandalizing property with a tag. I begun experimenting with different stencils that I would spray paint. To better understand how to properly cut and spray, I often did simple, symmetrical objects, such as circles and squares till I become more comfortable cutting more complex stencils, as I did with the sniper one and camera shutter.
    This project was essentially an adaption of my final second quarter project, which involved spray painting. I learned from that project using cardboard cutouts were not ideal to use as stencils, as they were difficult to cut, and got wet and weathered with each use of paint. I instead used stenciling paper this time, as it would be easier to cut, and much more durable, capable of dealing with bending and liquid, where the cardboard was unable to. By modifying the material used as a stencil, I was able to create higher quality artwork than I was able to produce last quarter.
    The first stencil I created was a circular, cartoonish bomb looking stencil, similar in appearance to 'The Hundreds' iconic bomb. My bomb lacked a face though, unlike 'The Hundreds' icon. After creating this stencil, I had a request to create a Fluer De Lis stencil for Whitney. For this I decided to play it safe and not free hand the icon, but instead printed out a copy, traced over it on my stenciling paper, then cut out the stencil. The second stencil set that I created was inspired by an image I saw on tumblr of a camera shutter. This stencil I did entirely free hand, creating several different parts of the shutter, which ended at the center, to form a circle. This was one of my favorite stencils that I made. After creating this stencil, I made a stencil that was inspired by reading The Nuer, by E. E. Evans-Pritchard. I created a stencil of that was inspired by The Nuer and by Keith Haring's stencils. The results from this were a stencil that was similar to Keith Haring's work, but very different at the same time.
    My final stencil that I created this quarter were a variety of different sniper icon ones. My process for this was to find various different circular objects, and trace them on separate pieces of paper. After I had a collective amount of different sized circles, I began to trace them all onto one stencil. My original idea was to just have a ton of circles, some that were sprayed, getting smaller and smaller. Though the problem with this was that I would be unable to create this sort of stencil. I know realize that this would have been possible, if I simply cut out the original circular stencils that I collected, but no matter, I was still content with the final result. Realizing at the time there was no other option than to draw two lines between the stencils to add the support and connect the different circles, my stencil began to take the shape of a sniper icon. I was happy with this result.
    Towards the end of this quarter, I began to develop a serious interest in clothing. I've always been told I have quite an eye for finding stylish and unique pieces of clothing, and I finally decided to utilize my ideas for taste to create something. I began to develop and design my own clothing line. Most of which are hats and variations of denim jackets. I chose hats due to my new found obsession with Supreme brand hats and their unique, 5-panel designs. Denim jackets I have always loved to wear, and see them as a very versatile piece of clothing. Though my ideas for these hats and jackets are still developing, I have created two hat designs, and one jacket design. The first  hat design is a five panel hat with a more modern cameo design, that is on the brim of the hat. The primary color of the hat comes in three different colors, black, red or orange. The second hat design is different from the other one. The brim and sides of the hat are a navy blue, while the middle of the hat is a fluorescent red. I chose to do a dark-highlight color scheme for this hat, as I believe if the hat was just navy blue, it would just be boring, and if it were just fluorescent red, it would be too obnoxious to wear. the navy blue helps tone down the effects of the red.
    Though I was never able to create my own iconic graffiti insignia, I was happy with where the project went. Graffiti was a temporary interest of mine, but I'm hoping that designing stays with me beyond the third and fourth quarter. For the fourth quarter I plan on expanding my design and items in the collection that I have created.

How might we change the role of food inside SLA Reflection -Wynn Geary

Wynn- “How might we change the role of food inside SLA”. If you don’t bring your food to school you essentially have to options of how to get lunch. 1. A school lunch or 2. The school store. These are both unfortunately very unhealthy options one has highly processed, inexpensive food the other has candy. Like the Ted talk explained it’s not hard to change this. In the movie “Super Size Me” there is a short “report” for lack of a better word, on a disciplinary school that had decided to serve only healthy food. The school partnered with a all natural kitchen in the town. They noticed that the students emotions were actually affected by the healthy food, they actually became happier and more energy. The movie didn’t explain how, but it said that they that the healthy food was actually cheaper.

If SLA could partner with local grocery stores like Food For All in Mt. Airy, we could create a similar healthy lunch program. The Ted talk also explained that we need to start to educate the youth about where their food comes from etc. SLA already has a small garden by the river but what if we started an urban farm on the roof? If we did this, we could provide the SLA student body with fresh locally grown healthy food.

How might we's

​How might we get parents to understand and control the amount of food they're children eat?

How might we get America to eat healthier foods? 

How might we as a school change the world?

How might this epidemic of fast food affect our future?

What role does food play inside of SLA?

In SLA, we have breakfast every morning and lunch every afternoon. SLA is a community of students engaging in the SLA core values: Inquiry, Research, Collaboration, Presentation and Reflection to enhance knowledge as well as cooperation skills. Everyone is familiar with the 'have a balanced breakfast every morning' saying. Mr. Sherif explained in class one day, that every morning, SLA provides a well balanced, nutritious breakfast for student to eat before class starts. This helps us with the necessary energy we need for class, as well as the important nutrients our bodies need and keeping us from starving or munching on chips and soda and candy because we hadn't eaten breakfast earlier. Lunch works the same way. It's important to have three meals a day, so SLA takes care of breakfast and lunch. So in terms of food playing a role of SLA, its role is to provide students with the right nutrients to maintain a healthy system as well as enough energy to keep us up and engaged throughout the day.

Obesity: TED Talk

What role does food play in our lives and in the lives of your community?

Food can be very important in our lives. I believe this because food is in aspect of life that is needed for survival. The types of food that we eat also describe the community we could live in. Types of food define a culture, or classify it. Food in many lives is a privilege. In my home, we're often very lucky to have food, but in times when my family doesn't have much money, we have to do the best we can with the little that we have.

What role does food play in our lives and in the lives of our community?

Food plays a huge role in our lives and effects us immensely everyday. Some people do not realize that what we eat can change our lives and even shorten it. This is why people need to give attention to the quality of food that they eat. Food is supposed to play the role of making sure we stay healthy and not decrease our life span.However this is not happening judging that 2/3 kids are obese and their life span is reduced by ten years.

TED Talk: Obesity in America

​Food matters because it provides us with energy. Food provides entire communities with nutrients and things their bodies need. We all need food in order to survive. We need the good things food can give us, but sometimes we are tempted by things hat are unhealthy. I think that they become really unhealthy once we start to eat it all the time. This is where food goes against us and this has become a problem in the U.S.

Why does food matter?

Food, is very important in the human society. We need food to survive and to give us energy. However today people are not eating correctly. People are not eating healthy, especially in school. Food matters a lot, but it matters even more if you eat healthy. Eating healthy will help you live up to 10 years longer.

Food Matters: Mingxue Zheng

Why does food matter?

   Food matter to the daily lives of our people because people need to consume food everyday to have the necessary energy to make the whole world function into a great society. If the food is not fresh or contains materials that are bad for people’s health then the continuous days of eating fast food would cost the government a lot of money to put under victims who suffer food disorders. Also, children who is in their learning stage of life (3 years old or older) are influenced by their parents who might have bad eating habits that might pass on this trait to the later generations. When these bad habits are passed down to generations and generations, the care for the type of food they’re eating will turned into satisfying the taste of the food without looking at the healthy contents that the food they’re eating contains. If we do care about our life span we need to first look at the freshness and healthiness of the food. The lack of our knowledge in food make the health rate and the death rate of the whole world would increase.

Food: Jamie Oliver

1. Food matters because it factors into what we eat to live but if we eat healthy then we can live long and enjoy our life.

2.Well food plays in my life is that food fuel me to do what I do. For the community is that food powers the community to continue what they do each everyday.

3.Well food plays a role of fueling our brains to focus on studying instead of feeling hungry all day.

4.Well we can change stuff like eating healthy, instead of buying food from manufacture we can just make them ourselves, and we can do health programs to provide people information.
