Week 10

The Anxieties of June (cupcake, transparency film on scanner)

Maria Elena Murguia
Photo Researcher
New York, NY

"An unhappy office, two passive aggressive emails, and a crashing deadline fills one day to the brim, but later when it becomes still and dark, these melt away and become completely insignificant compared to the joy of mushing a cupcake on a scanner bed."

Week 9

Xsan Rules (pen & ink)

Kelly Evers Jackson
Executive Assistant
New York, NY

"During meetings, it's more my place to record rather than speak. Therefore, when notes are not being taken, I find myself occupying my mind by drawing. After assisting on a project rebuilding our xsan server, I attended the final presentation and did a portrait of my team. The drawing was something they enjoyed very much."

Week 8

Dogwood (receipt tape, rubber bands)

Danny Coeyman
Ticket Monger, The New Museum
New York, NY

"I sell tickets at a contemporary art museum in New York. I make my own artwork as well, and I had this idea when the receipt tape ran low one day. It gets a pink edge, to remind you to change the roll, which looked just like the dogwood flowers in our arrangement at work. This was fun because it was something everyone looked at, but no one noticed, which kinda captures the feeling of working the front desk at the museum."

Week 7

Untitled (plastic spoon, marker, telephone); Untitled (pen, marker, Post It, computer); Untitled (pencil, pen, Post It)

Adam Roger Greene
New York, NY

"I make little things at work because it is natural. Under normal circumstances they remain free from other eyes, and criticism (even self-criticism). They live a moment and are tossed in the trash. They come with the regularity. A few scribbles, aware or unaware of my actions; and then back to work. Small unruly beasts to infiltrate the rigidity of routine."
