KEY ATTRIBUTES, GOALS & CHALLENGES

part-time server

the art student

• 23 year old female • Not married, dating • First year at UBC, in her second year of sculpture at Emily Carr University • Open minded, likes to learn and is an intellectual: reads Linda Nochlin, Susan Sontag, Foucault and looks up to Camille Claudel • Wants to incorporate sustainablitiy into her practise but isn’t sure how she can • Her biggest concern is for more space, needs better organization and better light so she can spend more time on her work • Her goals are to one day get her masters, maybe teach, but most of all to discover her own voice as an artist and have a distinct style • Her fears are finding employment after school and trying to finance her daily life while in school • Obstacles in her life are trying to manage everything between school, work and relationships, as well as the pressure to be creative and come up with new ideas constantly and consistently. • Her biggest obstacle is to use sustainability in her art practise

DESCRIPTION Rosalind Benzon is 23 years old and attends Emily Carr University in sculpture. She previously completed one year of general studies at UBC before deciding to study Fine Arts. She is a second generation Malaysian and she was born and raised in Toronto. She works part time as a server and is dating her boyfriend, Mark for the past year and a half. Rosland attends art openings often, likes walking on the sea wall and visiting with friends, but her time is usually used up by school projects. She spends a lot of time at her boyfriend’s house and doubles her home as a studio space for lack of space and money for her art practise. She lives in a two bedroom apartment with two other female art students. She has little income from serving and is living on income from a student loan. She hopes to complete her Masters one day and to have a successful art practise after she graduates. Rosalind is liberal-minded and supports leftist politics. She is very open minded and opinionated about her personal taste and maintains strong values and beliefs. She is a feminist, and is also a staunch socialist. She is an outspoken intellectual, is skeptical about many aspects of modern society and reads theorists such as Linda Nochlin, Susan Sontag, Foucault and looks up to Camille Claudel as a sculptor. As a part of a 2000 student body, Rosalind is surrounded by other art students, professors, and alumni and is also influenced by people at work and outside of school. As for products and objects that she buys and surrounds herself with, she likes to repurpose things and is a thrift shopper. However, she likes good quality materials, and buys more expensive items as well because she likes well crafted things. She tries to save money whenever possible but finds herself buying lunch at school because of lack of time. She likes coffee, French New Wave films, bikes, ceramics, cats, books, reading and tarot cards. She dislikes close minded people, organized religion and misogynists. She relates with other art students, some of her professors and strong female figures.

ROSLAND “ROS” BENZON Vancouver, BC

Rosalind has average computer knowledge and is moderately proficient with Adobe Photoshop. She uses some social networking platforms such as Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, Wordpress, Pinterest and Flickr. She reads the New York Times online and follows several art and design blogs. She is very aware of other sculptors and what is going on in the art world outside her practise because of following sites online but also from going to openings and visiting contemporary art galleries in Vancouver such as the VAG and CAG. She knows a good exhibit from a bad one. Some things that Rosalind needs are more space (for her practise and to live in), a creative environment and sustainable art supplies. She needs to focus on her living space and making some better spatial changes and solutions.
