Art / Entry #250
Palm Tree War and Peace
I'd like to create a large floor installation somewhat like a mandala out of glitter or colored sand that will span an entire area. This will force passersby to decide if they will walk around or through the work. The work isn't truly activated until members of the public make those decisions.
Additionally, I'd like to create a series of sculptures over the course of the week in April. As the floor piece fades and is destroyed the sculptures will grow. These sculptures will be fabricated using found materials in the Jacksonville area.
Just saw my venue and it's super spectacular! I'll post a pic later. :) My brain is buzzing.
UPDATE 2/26/13 Ugh...It's March already... I need supplies like now. If you wanna help please visit my website. There's a contact link there. I'll take donations of almost anything. Paper, Fabric, Money, Tape, Glitter, Glues, Things of this nature. I'm super excited about the space. You can see it's pretty dope. Anyway, I recorded an interview for this thing. Hopefully it's gonna be up sooner than later. It was done with a handheld and no mic so bear with me. I have a low voice. More to come :) UPDATE: 3/21/13 I know it's been a while but I've been conceptualizing, reconceptualizing, and gathering materials. I think I've got the piece anchored right for the space. I've got a few stencils prepped and I should have a few folks helping me out with the install. Oy! See ya soon!
