Bubble Buddies Color Keys!
I think this was one of my favorite episodes that I worked on! I just thought the idea of Steven and Connie in a bubble was really cute and they visit so many cool places in this episode. The underwater stuff was heavily inspired by Super Mario World!
I’ll update this post with a link to some of the final BGs as soon as someone posts them!
The New York Times makes it seem like a match made in heaven: “Ai Weiwei was one of the most famous prisoners in recent history. Now he’s taking on one of the most infamous prisons of all time” — that prison being Alcatraz, the San Francisco facility that was closed down in 1963 and turned into a famous tourist destination. The piece goes on to report that the renowned Chinese dissident artist chose the location because he is “interested in exploring conditions in which individuals are stripped of basic human rights,” but that Ai is “not thinking about work that will directly connect to my own detention” by the Chinese government in 2011.
The combination of Ai and what used to be an infamous prison — one that now hosts up to over a million visitors a year — is an intriguing one. Art on display in a prison isn’t usually meant for public view, because let’s face it, not that many people want to hang around a prison in their spare time. It’s the fact that Alcatraz is now an established tourist destination that makes it a perfect spot for the unique exhibition.
While the site of Ai’s project hasn’t housed inmates for 50 years, art is still being made inside functioning prisons, most of the time by inmates themselves, through workshops and even programs that encourage prisoners to take up acting in Shakespearean plays. But it’s only when they involve a famous outsider, like Ai, that prison-based art projects and performances tend to get the attention they deserve.

Meryl McMaster: In-Between Worlds
In-Between Worlds explores the mixing and transforming of bi-cultural identities - Aboriginal and Euro-Canadian (Scottish and Cree).
McMaster views her bicultural Aboriginal-European heritage as a synergistic strength rather than a struggle between opposing forces. Through working on this series, McMaster transformed the way she views the past, creating a new narrative that comments on her personal heritage and its relation to a larger, shared cultural history that is inextricable from the land. Colourful self-portraits insert the artist’s body into visual spaces that reflect both the inspiration that she felt during her time alone in nature and the sense of being between two worlds. The images depict McMaster posed with evocative sculptures and sculptural garments, which she constructed to serve as talismans that incorporate her bicultural heritage through collage.
This series addresses the idea of liminality, of being betwixt and between cultural identities and histories. In-Between Worlds is a sequence of moments that appear out of the ordinary and can be interpreted as being in a state of suspended belief.
