Victoria Lenoirre's Review of L'Impatiens from the September UWA 3d Challenge Round

I only reviewed 5 pieces so this is the sixth one. It was the little impatient man in the black suit that first caught my eye. After a closer look, I knew I wanted  to know drew me in. I started writing this about a week before voting was closed. The artist requested that I not publish the interview until after judging, so here it is. :-)

L'Impatiens by Josiane Sorciere
What do you use to build and animate your sculpties with?

I use the Puppeteer animator, a great tool made by Todd Borst. I know that there is another animator with additional features, such as changing textures and prim parameters, but I can't remember its name. I tested it once, but I prefer the Puppeteer because it is the easiest for me to use. I didn't build the sculpties though. I'm not able to do that... I'm just an assembler :)

What inspired this piece?

Well, most of my buildings are inspired by my friends, and this one isn't an exception. The truth is that since I brought the ballerina to the UWA gallery, Jayjay kept asking me for more artwork. I had no idea of what to do. I thought of something, but I never started it; because it turned out to be more complicated than I expected. Then in late August or early September, he asked me how this idea was going. I asked for another week, went into my garden, and thought, thought, thought of what i could build; and that's when the L'impatience came to my mind like lightning \o/.

The little man in black looks impatient. Is the brown man who seems to be flying and working at the artist's bench impatient too? What is happening with the brown man or should I call him the artist?

Yes, the brown man is the artist. He goes from one thing to the other, trying to find THE idea, but he has trouble finding inspiration in his music, painting, and sculpting... I try to represent his irritation. And that's the point. Who do you think is the most impatient? The artist trying to come up with an idea, or the "boss" that's waiting for his artwork ?

What's the meaning in this piece? I feel like there's a lot of symbolism in it.

There is... maybe... maybe not... I'm not good at symbolism; everyone sees in it what they want.
I feel that artwork should be interpreted freely by each individual. I don't even think artworks should be explained by their creators ;) because there is no right or wrong meaning in interpreting an artwork.

I agree wholeheartedly, Josiane. Artwork is open to interpretation. I always find it special to learn what art means to an artist. It is like how writers give meaning to their own writing. It is a a brief glance into their heart and their view of the world. It is truly beautiful that with art, there is no right or wrong...just creativity and inspiration.

A belated congratulations to Josiane Sorciere and all the other winners who won awards in September! You all did amazing work!


  1. My answer to the last question was a bit consensual... It was hard to answer because I didn't build L'Impatience in thinking I was building an artwork. I more or less promised a long time ago to Jayjay to bring something else to the UWA art challenge, I have no idea of what to do, so I tried to represent an episode in my life, a state of mind, that's why I dont see any symbolism in it.
    I built that as a kind of joke, I was playing with prims, as usual. But I don't think I'm an artist, and I don't think Jay is a buisness man smoking cigars. To me, it's quite only animated prims, the Puppeteer is easy to use, and anybody could have do the same.
    Then, it can talk to people, remind them feelings, sensations, minds... but I can't tell for them ;)
    Thank you very much for reviewing L'Impatience, I'm very honored !

  2. folding money that I do not Thatch UPC cryptography as a performing of coordinated coupons to income -- it is not only extremely unethical, but using the information obtained via secret writing to deliberately then employment a coupon to bargain thing other than what is mere is coupon cheat -- a crime. Without explaining precisely how it is done, there is a relation of a coupon's barcode that matches a share of the product's barcode. This is how the airway determines if the merchandise has been purchased. Because of the way that the elderly barcode on a coupon co-ordinated that coupon to a product's clan code, coupons for one head architect merchandise strength glance over without beeping on a divers cosmopolitan Mills product. (And, don't get any "clever" ideas that secret writing barcodes to use one coupon on a contrasting part to get a superordinate hand strength be "smart shopping" -- it's fraud, sheer and simple. This family-code coupon put-on overwork is living thing eliminated with an industry-wide tidings to the barcode method this year. Safeway stores' registers have now accepted the update, as have many a others round the country.motherhood maternity coupons It affects newborn coupon shoppers whose percentage is piqued by what they see on the show. Seeing thing on receiver validates it as "truth" for some people. If they see a "reality celebrity" using coupons in an "off-label" manner, for products that are synonymous but not, as the manufacturer puts it, "ONLY ..the brand, size(s) and quantities indicated," they will change this is unacceptable -- or else, reason would it be shown on television? the great unwashed take over that surely, the exhibit requisite have an somebody or paid on clapping overseeing the kinds of trips that these shoppers area unit preparation for the cameras, because thousands of TV audience will miss to check what they see.t will do away with this considerate of fraud, as the newborn barcode is a lot more than specialised to the antitype of commodity that it can be utilised on. The unused barcode organisation ameliorate is in approximate at about stores now and has been propulsion out around the country since this film was filmed. DO NOT judge to rip off the scheme by decoding barcodes.
