"judging books by their cover" episode 13

I went to a place where books are discarded by strangers, placed out on shelves by strangers, observed and bought to be reused by strangers, and, probably, discarded again by strangers. A cycle of books, for books.  I let chance, random, placement, and what I selected to see about these books/ strangers supervise the story I produced. I guess this project is about what others bring to the table and what I bring to the table.

awesome project. Dolores

Remake episode 13 #theartassignment
This assignment was to pick something in our cultural society that you liked and remake it. I picked the art of body design know as tattoos. 
The top photo is that of a mermaid on a young woman’s forearm.
The bottom photo is several tattoos, on the young woman, from her forearm to her neck and chest. By scanning in a sweep panorama on my camera, I created a different version of the tattoo for her arm. 
I enjoyed the assignment. Dolores

"above and beyond the imprint"

#theartassignment  imprint 12

Sopheap Pich works, pictured in the assignment video, are beautiful. The prints remind me of artful timelines or slowed heart rates. I wondered if his life was as beautiful as his works, thinking that simple, conclusive flow, and right the first time around. Not so for me.

My life and art is full of steps, journeys, mistakes, inconclusive flows, and I am rewarded only if I have made many attempts to get satisfaction and taken it way past my intended boundaries. It’s the hard way but I feel righteous about it and have accepted my way of dealing with my art.

In making this piece I used several things for imprinting on the paper, cut up pie pan, blouse, blackberry container, and the blackberries too. I was still not satisfied till I decided to get 3-D with the folds of the paper and making imprints that way. I was in love with the effect. Then I started setting up a scene, as usual, I could not leave it at that. I cut out a female figure from one of my books and “imprint folded” to symbolize myself and added it to the “folded imprinted” papers.  So, instead of a timeline of a day, it is a visual routine of the day.

First photo, steps to getting there. imprint- to mark or fix by pressing or stamping, a mark made by imprinting  ”I consider folding an imprint.”

Second photo, close up of folded imprints. 

Third photo, I am asking myself, ” installation or diorama?”

I enjoyed the assignment. Thanks, Dolores

"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.
