I must be honest, when I was at nceca I felt a little out of place because I was not 24yrs old with dreadlocks or a guy with a beard. I felt a bit "yuppy ish" being 34 and a stay at home mother.
It was the same for me in college. The "Artsy" students, were wearing paint splattered, retro clothing from the local second hand store, mixed with band apparel from someone I had never heard of. The Graphic Design students wore khakis and button ups or polos.
I took a wide range of classes, so my dress never fit in with either, as I was constantly in sneakers, jeans and a t-shirt.
I never felt out of place, as I wasn't aware there was a required "Artist Dress Code". Since, I'm apparently incorrect, I guess I will have to invest in some berets and smocks.
The fact that you throw pots sitting on a lounge chair speaks oceans, go on youtube, start a movement, not many are so cool!!
Statemnet in red, great statement.
