My week in art.
My week in art.
We cry tears of joy, tears of sorrow, tears of anger and tears of confusion, but we fail to remember our tears of light which are the tears that aren’t physically apart of us, but are so vital to our existence.
Our light was exquisite yesterday. I shot this using a “natural gobo”. This is my invention. I used the light coming through the window and the got the light to point on Elly’s face through the side of a window shade. Thanks for following!
I think I have a chaotic week ahead of me. I’m going to strive to live in the moment and love the process.
Here is some art that came out of my brain over the past two days.
Enjoy your week and Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
I found this photo which I took during out first snow back in December. I can’t believe the perfect ring around these beautifully dancing trees.
They are dancing on the wind. Fearlessly showing themselves. Whispering loudly.
AH! Today was an awesome day! I sat around in the basement in the dark with my family a lot. There were also some very interesting discussions which out of context would be extremely strange. However, I am not at liberty to discuss those discussions here…;( I’ll leave that up to your imaginations.
Screen printing is magical. The moment I saw the screen after burning the design with light, I screamed for a couple of minutes. Seriously. I should have video taped the screaming and jumping that went on. Then, when I first put the ink down on the screen and saw how the print looked I had another screaming attack.
Screen printing is boss.
Here is what I’ve been up to this week…
Today was fantastic. I woke up and after a delicious green smoothie, went to a contact improv class with my sister. The class was amazing and opened my eyes up to a whole new way of using my senses to discover the world and the people living on it. The post-modern dance form tells stories, creates beauty, and energizes the body. It can be deep, meaningful, silly, comedic or any kind of emotion. You can watch some of it action here, or you can learn the concepts of the dance here. One of the things that I think is most delightful about the dance is that anyone can do it. It does look complex and scary, but as soon as I started, it seemed like I had been dancing all my life.
Tonight, Elly (my sister) and I went to a contact contact improvisation performance which was apart of “Mazopalooza“. We watched more contact improv (I even got to be in one of the dances!), and at the end participated in a French ritual pronounced “oochy”. We lit candles and made resolutions before going in to the middle of the circle for more dancing. I resolve to be spontaneous without reservation.
