Six word stories, six word quotes, and six word poetry are all the rage. So why not six second art? Using any method of video, stop motion, or other visual medium, produce a six second video of you creating art. It could be digital art, physical art, or performance art, just create a six second video of you making it happen! Vine, Youtube, Vimeo, are all great places to host, although Vine happens to a great natural place for this type of work.

Technically, the glass is always full

Inspired by a pic from pinterest I found a few months back. Thought of the saying →”always see the glass half full.” Given that I prefer to see the good in everything, this made me put it the way I want people to see it. Defying the awaited expectation.
