It took a while, but I finally got to AIC to complete the task that Cubey had been reminding me about daily. Yet which piece of art would I pick? There are so many amazing works in the Art Institute that it was extremely difficult to pick just one!

I have a degree in art history from the University of Wisconsin. I graduated in '03, and aside from keeping up with gallery nights here and there, I hadn't thought much about art since, well, 2003. Going in the AIC's modern wing reopened my eyes to the wonder and awesomeness of art, particularly my favorite works -- surrealists and dadaists and absurd art in general. It was like reuniting with a lost love; my heart quickened, my eyes widened, everything was exciting! While I almost chose Man Ray's "Cadeau" as my favorite work, I ended up on Time Transfixed by Magritte. It's absurd but clear, like a vision in a dream that you can't quite shake after waking. Cubey helped me imitate the art, as you can see in the photo.
