LRR Interviews the 2012 Design Team (2012)

Come and show your support for our talented artists at the senior art showcase Friday, April 27, 2012!

This year’s team includes Rebecca Hawley, Dana Haddad, Daryl Wu, and Taylor Diglio.

LRR: Favorite medium?

Rebecca Hawley:  As a designer it is hard for me to pick one medium, so I would say mixed media. Design is about creative and strategic problem solving. A good designer is open to working or experimenting with a variety of different materials.

Dana Haddad: Blood…. Just kidding. I enjoy film photography.

Daryl Wu: My Macbook Pro.

Taylor Diglio: A sharpie pen

LRR: Favorite quote or lyric?

Rebecca Hawley: “Life isn’t measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”

Dana Haddad: “SHE DOESN’T EVEN GO HERE!” (You would be surprised how many situations that is appropriate for.)

Daryl Wu: “I wanted to do hoodrat stuff with my friend.” – Latarian Milton

Taylor Diglio: “If peeing your pants is cool, consider me Miles Davis” – Billy Madison

LRR: Favorite superhero (or heroine)?

Rebecca Hawley: Dana Haddad

Dana Haddad: Rebecca Hawley

Daryl Wu: Wolverine cause he’s badass.

Taylor Diglio: Batman (and my mom)

LRR: If you could travel to any place in the world, which do you think would grant you the most artistic inspiration?

Rebecca Hawley:  London, Berlin. Copenhagen and Florence. I am indecisive and love traveling.

Dana Haddad: I have no particular destination, I would just love to be somewhere where I am completely out of my element. However, I believe one can find inspiration anywhere.

Daryl Wu: I would definitely want to visit Hawaii again. Its culture, scenery, and history could prove to be very inspirational. Also, the people there are very hospitable.

Taylor Diglio: Switzerland

LRR: If anyone who ever lived offered to draw a portrait of you, who would you like it to be?

Rebecca Hawley: Paul Rand or Walt Disney… but really I just want to be best friends with them; they don’t have to draw me.

Dana Haddad: I would want Picasso to draw me, so I could sell it for millions.

Daryl Wu: Chuck Close. Check out his paintings and you’ll see why.

Taylor Diglio: James Dean

The showcase will take place at ArtSpace, 480 Main Street, Willimantic, CT 06226. 6PM-8PM. This event is FREE!
