Day 5 and the color is purple. I played with my camera and made something with purple. This is not high art. There is no deep meaning other than taking an ugly stylized fish from the side of a building and adding some color and playing with my iphone and finishing today’s challenge. It is an example of how you can use your creativity just to play and have fun because…
Sometimes this girl just wants to have fun and playing with my iphone is fun and a great way to start the day. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can check out our 14 day Colour challenge here.
The reason I’m not going heavy duty with purple is because I’m preparing my installation for the Odeonsplatz Window for February 2016. My inspiration for this installation is Alice in Wonderland (rabbit’s hole), the Matrix (red/blue pilll) & This display at a sock store.
The installation is titled “You pierced my heart and shattered my soul.” My tribute to Valentine’s day. I will give a “splaining” of the piece after it is created. Right now, I’m experimenting with hanging the pieces at the Friday Gallery and figuring out how to deal with those bright lights in the space.
There are 23 pieces in the process of creation but maybe I will reduce it or mold it into one assembled piece. We will figure that out when the artwork is installed on January 31st. (Great Sunday Morning activity.) I still have not decided if I want to add a video component to this installation but I might experiment with how to add it this weekend when I take a break from Alice.
The Friday Gallery will be closed until February 1st as I use the gallery space to work on the installation. If you need to meet with me, please make an appointment.
Friday Gallery February Installation
Ines Seidel and Allun Turner will begin installing their “Talk” installation at the Friday Gallery in February. I will post the days that they are at the gallery installing pieces. The gallery will be open Monday – Saturday from 1100 to 1500 during February so you can come see their installation and I will post when they add new elements along with an explanation of their talk.
You have one more week to see the January Crush Installation at Odeonsplatz. In a few days it will be crushed into storage tubes and moved to the Friday Gallery.
Here is a video of the installation( In case you have no desire to visit Odeonsplatz but are curious about our first installation of 2016.) Want to read a little about this installation, you can go visit the Crush splaining page.
