Anima Jung was the genius behind the unique one night art show held Nov. 12th, 2011 at the Conundrum Music Hall in W Columbia, SC. The premise was there are 8 basic human emotions and 9 artists were each assigned an emotion. We had to keep it secret about which emotion we were assigned, but now the cat is out of the bag. The emotion I was assigned was "Disgust". Those of you that follow my art know my art work is mostly about music, peace, love, flowers, joy, and lively colors. Being a very positive person, at first, I was not happy to be assigned a negative emotion. I knew I would have to make art specifically for the show and thought okay, this is going to take me out of my comfort zone. I spent hours of research online, reading disgusting news, looking at disgusting images and reading what the word "disgust" actually meant. Everyday as I rode all over the state of SC, I thought about what it meant to me.
