"limited stakeout"    assignment #2
With this project, I picked the Goodwill store to do the stakeout assignment.
While I was looking for merchandise, I found a nice spot where you could look outside the window, at a bench, and would not be noticed for doing so. A couple of gents were sitting there waiting for the rain to stop. I thought, “Perfect, I have my stakeout”.
I went to the store on three different days and stayed till someone sat on the bench. I would take their photo, without their knowledge, and it felt like a real stakeout.
The other photos display what I purchased (took away) and how much money I spent (left behind).
I have put the assignment in a photo collage. I enjoyed the “stakeout”.  Thanks, Dolores
P. S. It leaves me thinking, ” In public places, do you need permission to do art like this or does art answer to know one?

"limited influence"   
 I chose Christo because of his environmental installations and his concern for the welfare of Earth. He worked in all types of locations on the planet,  except in a museum. His large,gentle disturbances portray a temporary existence with artistic freedom as his catalyst. His poetic creations are full of joy, beauty, and humor. His works are like oceans that make you aware of your surroundings and how small one can feel in the scope of things.
I used discarded items and placed them in natural surroundings, using my backyard as a location. The pantyhose worked well for wrapping/ stretching over the selected items. I selected a few photographs and displayed in a storyboard format. I hope it fits the assignment and shows my own interpretation of Christo (in a small way) without exact copying. My timeline, for this assignment, was a day. I enjoyed the assignment.
Thanks, Dolores
P.S. Don’t try this at home because it will make your neighbors crazy.
