  8. 8. THE VINYL TOUCH Written by OSAYI ENDOLYN Illustration by BARRY LEE “Whoa. Whoa! What album is that?” The Zifty delivery guy pointed behind me. Forty-five minutes earlier, I had ordered a chicken Parmesan sub through The Zifty people pick up your takeout order from restaurants that don’t deliver, and bring it right to you. I was famished. It was one of those offensively cold nights just before Atlanta was held hostage by snow and ice. My kitchen offered unattractive options ranging from uncooked pasta to granola, and I was not about to brave the weather. So when I opened the door to the nice Zifty man holding my sandwich from Noni’s Italian Deli, I could have grabbed his face and smacked a juicy one right on him. I tipped the man instead. Then things took a detour.6 SCAN MAGAZINE » WIN TE R 2 0 11

Running a creative business means that one must be creatively inspired. Henderson has a Zen-like philosophy: “I believe that decisions you make throughout your life ultimately define your future. My inspiration comes from these points in the lives of people I know.” For Wallican-Nesbit, SCAD Atlanta is a place that is “oozing with inspiration,” but finds architecture and nature equally stimulating. Baker stays inspired by the young minds who play the games he creates. “I have always loved working with children because my mom was a preschool teacher.” Boulton’s muses are easily identifiable. One“ look at her colorful collection of handbags and the inspiration is obvious. “The illustra- tions on the handbags are based on nature Stick with it. It’s not easy to build something from scratch.

Showcase » PRI N T MA KI N G Bo-Ra Choi Artist Statement My work follows an impulse to publicly frame my nationality — what I consider my self-awareness to be through personal experiences and memories, gathered together in an eerie and often dark mood. My images utilize the image of a little girl who represents my true self as defined by not only my native Korean culture and experiences, but also by those I have encountered since coming to study and live in the U.S. My work explores my realiza- tion that life is not a fairy tale. The little girls in my work wander into the quiet, yet hostile, environ- ment of fairy tales gone wrong. These pieces use sibling relationships as a meta- phor to explore my experience as an expatriate living in America. The abstract movement suggests my wanderings and the uncertainty of life away from home. These concepts allow me to research my identity and cultural influences, while fostering self-awareness. »20 SCAN MAGAZINE » WIN TE R 2 0 11
  22. 22. Showcase » SC U L P T U R E Curtis Miller Artist Statement I view my art as a tribute to those who have paved the way for us; to those whose valor and sacrifice are our inheritance and keepsake; to those who strive and constantly push us to rein- vent ourselves. My art pays homage to all the works that have challenged and enthralled me, works that have motivated me to move forward and progress in my own life. My artistic goals are analogous to the values I embraced in the Marine Corps. Namely to increase discipline and gain the life experi- ence necessary to realize one’s potential in both craft and concept. Since leaving the Corps, every day I carry the same focus. I am driven and determined to complete what I set out to achieve. My goal as a student is to utilize the discipline I’ve gained, and learn as much as possible to prepare myself for the next level of life and education. »22 SCAN MAGAZINE » WIN TE R 2 0 11

For supplies I use cardboard, unsolicited mail, free papers, whatever I can dig out of the trash, street treasures, cans, my boyfriend’s milk jugs and gifts of unused supplies. Poverty taught me, more than anything else, how to be resourceful. I am fascinated by commodity fetishism and the life cycle that objects of desire have for those with credit or expendable income. The less useful the product, the more exciting. In the past I collected action fig- ures and comic books. That was when I had a job at a plastic injection molding plant.
