美国艺术留学

美国马里兰艺术学院有个会唱诗的大师哥

你随时都在塑造你的历史(一)
                                                                                               
作者  金久勋
                                                               
                                                                 首先这不是一篇正经的留学感悟
                                                                 我又不想写的太无聊
                                                                 毕竟我自己还在感悟
                                                                 可需要的旅游攻略都在网上
                                                                 你要的学术经验也不在这
                                                                 这些乱七八糟的言语
                                                                 也许能为你帮上点忙
                                                                 你会读得很快
                                                                 因为我不爱掺着英文在里面
                                                                 只有来了巴尔的摩才感受到了这里独特的气息
                                                                 悲伤 明亮 匍匐沉寂
                                                                 有极美的教堂 学校
                                                                 也有美剧的暴力 街角毒瘾微颤的娼妓 肥大着装的黑人兄弟
                                                                 这里是百分之一
                                                                 是很不美国的美国
                                                                 也是很美国的美国

                                                                 要问为什么出国学习我也说不清楚
                                                                 从艺术学院毕业也说不清什么艺术
                                                                 有人抱怨体制 抱怨老师
                                                                 关上电脑还是要面对一个尺码鞋子
                                                                 还有随意的熟悉不过的那个环境
                                                                 杂乱的桌上会有个手掌大小的镜子

                                                                 我们都是读了几年书
                                                                 上了几年班儿
                                                                 还是那个重复着表象的年轻人
                                                                 即便在朋友圈中再牛
                                                                 父母眼中再孝顺
                                                                 人群中再夺目
                                                                 也不过是现实中的百变大咖秀罢了
                                                                 我们都努力着
                                                                 成为自己心中记忆中想变成的那个人的样子
                                                                 为了更漂亮的姑娘
                                                                 为了更帅的小伙子
                                                                 为了刮坏了也开得起的车子
                                                                 和一个并不能来回穿梭的签证

                                                                 不想说周老师和陈老师他们帮了我多少忙
                                                                 免得说是打广告
                                                                 至少我是感激的
                                                                 对于当初一个英语盲来说更是的
                                                                 至于有些人吃了甜头
                                                                 还在背后说莎士比亚的
                                                                 我只想问…
                                                                 算了
                                                                 我狭隘的心又要逼别人树敌了
                                                                 价值观的事儿是吧

                                                                 于是13小时的飞机夺走了那并不可能被利用的13个小时
                                                                 于是凑合着追着太阳落地了
                                                                 随着臀部的震颤
                                                                 并没有振醒脑中的疑惑
                                                                 或是发朋友圈的冲动
                                                                 嫌弃到手机壳夹到了裤兜下的腿毛
                                                                 这才闻到了夏天JFK的味儿
                                                                 晃荡在纽约的丛林里
                                                                 这混着汗臭河香水的资本主义气息
                                                                 还真没什么特别的
                                                                 最终还是站到了马里兰开学队伍里
                                                                 这是一个没有校区的校区
                                                                 Maryland Institute College of Art
                                                                 马里兰艺术学院
                                                                 建筑就随意的摆放在了街道的两边
                                                                 白色醒目MICA大字时刻提醒着你
                                                                 一年可花着不少的钱呢兄弟
                                                                 这里有很多好的人们
                                                                 有着悠久的历史
                                                                 有丰富的资源和机会
                                                                 也有着较高的犯罪率
 
                                                                  如果你要来
                                                                  请做好心理准备
                                                                  年轻的犯罪分子们不分早晚的敬业投入
                                                                  已经将学子们警惕心搞的麻木了
                                                                  学校的治安邮件平均每个月两封
                                                                  意味着每个月
                                                                  学校周围就发生两到三期不同程度的犯罪行为
                                                                  好在有并不是很好用的随叫随到的学校巴士
                                                                  理论上会载你到你想去的地方
                                                                  所以我认为这里适合比较宅的人
                                                                  你也可以搬到相对安全的区域
                                                                  个人认为
                                                                  为什么约翰霍普金斯大学和马里兰艺术学院排名比较高
                                                                  我猜应该是都宅在工作室和家里
                                                                  相当程度上提高了和自身专业亲密接触的时间
                                                                  特别是我们的邻居 约翰霍普金斯
                                                                  毕竟街边这么多的现场实习机会
                                                                  其实这是极好的
                                                                  对于适应过程我是没法说清楚的
                                                                  一直都是因人而异
                                                                  一来只有热脸
                                                                  不一定有凉屁股
                                                                  还是王阳明说得好 知行合一
                                                                  同样某先生也曰过
                                                                  中午不睡
                                                                  下午崩溃
                                                             
                                                                  我在Photographic & Electronic Media
                                                                  简称PEM 图像与电子艺术
                                                                  后来我调侃说是
                                                                  Philosophy & English Media
                                                                  被系主任知道了
                                                                  还总和我提这事儿
                                                                  …他还挺喜欢的...
 
                                                                  课程和内部环境是这样的
                                                                  就我们系的话先说吃的
                                                                  有冰箱你可以储存熬夜的食物
                                                                  当然还有咖啡机
                                                                  不是很宽大的饮食区域
                                                                  但是只有微波炉和超级小烤箱
                                                                  不能做菜只能洗碗
                                                                  独立工作室不够用
                                                                  有一部分人会分一个工作室
                                                                  不过也够啦
                                                                  周一周二是集体讲评(作品批评)
                                                                  每个学生一个学期要做三次
                                                                  一天三到四个人
                                                                  晚上七点到十点
                                                                  也是为什么下了课和老师直接一起酒吧呆着去             
                                                                  周三晚上是技术类的硬课程
                                                                  老师真的很厉害
                                                                  剩下时间是自己去上选好的选秀课
                                                                  选修课都很棒 爱的不行
                                                                  时间和精力够的话可以申请做本科助教
                                                                  系里的老师除了系主任还有三位
                                                                   一个学期要和他们分别单独见面三次
                                                                  还有来访艺术家什么的

                                                                   忙起来的一周会像这样
                                                                  (未完待续)
