Baby Benji

My sister Rachel had her baby boy Benjamin earlier this morning. This is the 19th time I've been an aunt. And I still absolutely adore it. I get just as excited with each birth. He's a new life. He's a miracle. I love children.With Benjamin and Abi, his oldest sister.
I love her face in this one!
Isn't he just adorable?
Look at that hair!

Oh I love him :)

You wish your art class was as cool as mine

What could this possibly be? Well it is installation art. Which is probably the most exciting art there is. If you've never tried it, you haven't lived.
So here's our concept. Our world today is drifting away from nature and becoming more connected to technology. However, there are still those hippies who are completely tied to nature. We made this literal with saran wrap.
Now she is still tied to nature, but not quite so much. Perhaps this could represent someone who wants to go green. I don't know. The beauty of modern art is that you can make it mean whatever you want.
Now Corinne here is only a little bit tied to nature. Sure, she'll recycle every once in a while, if it is convenient. I would say many people fall in this category.
And finally, she represents someone who is completely relying on technology. Yeah, she is still connected to the saran wrap, but only because she has to step on nature sometimes to get around.
What do you think?
