So i know I'm suppose to write about the artist Navin but i just came back from camp and i thought i better write about that first. Well for camp we went to a little village in Mae Hong Son called Ban Jabo. The trip was fantastic, spending time with friends and making new ones. We were post into small groups and we were put into houses. We then meet our host families, my host family consisted of host mum, host grandmum, host cousin, host cousin brother, host baby, host son, and host uncle. We spent the week doing activities and having fun. I hate being back and i miss my host family.

Sculpture 1 is of a hippie. As hippies have been the base of many other sub-cultures. It is the influence for many of the teen spirits, influencing the Beat Generation and many other revolutions and liberations.
Sculpture 2 is a simple figure listening to headphones. It is the general musical influence that through time has created many genres that are present today.
Part B: Picture silhouette -- Created with approximately 20-30 small photos each. The photos will make a silhouette of the sculptures.
