these are the beginning photos of my piece inspired by seth apter's disintegration collaboration.
the idea is to put paper outside to weather and on May 1 we'll all see what we end up with. there are some very cool pieces, visit seth's blog and check the sidebar to see them.
as i was looking through what the other artists had done, i was struck by a reference to prayer flags, and i liked some rolls that another artist did. when i was in japan, i remember prayers tied to trees so that the message could be carried with the wind.
so i made these rolls with a prayer inside for the upcoming year. there are several layers of paper- some have colored tissue paper which will hopefully bleed onto the other pieces. prayers or words are written in ink which may run. some of the paper is absorbent, some is not.
when i finished this i noticed that i have many 3s going on here- 3 tubes, 3 twigs, 3 shells. there is 1 large folded paper and there are 2 large glass beads. this is an elementary structure.
i looked for the meaning of the number 3 and found this: The third dimension - we do things in threes so they will manifest in our physical realm. Three is the heavenly number, representing soul.
i like the idea that having 3 prayers helps them manifest. i like having my prayers out in the world. i look forward to seeing what i have in 3 months.
The Affordable Art Fair - One of the many advantages of living in NYC is the all-access pass to art that you get 24/7/365. It could be the museums, the galleries, the auction houses...
