It is time!
Welcome to my contribution to an amazing reveal day. Thanks to our amazing host, Seth Apter...I raise my coffee mug to you and will save it for future art! To learn more about "DisCo" go to the DisCo Discovery post and get lost in the confluence of beauty through disintegration.
First and foremost, I am a science gal...a chemist by degree practicing as a pharmacist, but the science of art and therefore experimentation is my life. I could not be happier to join in this collaboration. You may view my other posts to see all involved in my bundle, the results...etc but this is the day for blooming. To Seth, who wrote:
"The impact of time on both nature (think the budding and blooming of a plant) and man-made objects (think the rusting of a metal washer dropped in the street) has always been fascinating for me"
I could not agree more and hope you enjoy how my piece blooms :)
place yourself in the hands of the invention
with all the beautiful vitality of a flower
-it opens with the dawn
I should let you know now I closed my brain for a while so my soul could speak...there was no planning. no thinking, no distractions....I just reached into my beautiful disintegration goodies and created
I invited my friend the crow to help me open this flower...
the chains become seeds secured in beeswax
the leaves are what balance the large bloom...
whether it be a furtive eye
or an ingenuous peek
it is all a part of the curves in her stem that keep her balanced
I call this piece "Perceiving the Guise"
Then I had time for "Soul Cage"...open to what it means to you...to me it was a bit of fun and it's all good!
remembering Newton's Law
2nd Law of motion~If a body be acted on by several forces,it will obey each as though the others did not exist, and this whether the body be at rest or in motion.
now shift your focus..
Can not even conclude with anything better than another quote from Seth:
"Symbolically, I feel that aging, disintegration, and decay are natural parts of evolution which create something of value and are not necessarily endings, or things to be discarded or dismissed. To me this relates to our own aging, to the value of recycling and repurposing, and to the recognition of the beauty of weathered and distressed objects – be they a rusty fence, a wall with peeling paint, or ourselves!"
I look forward to seeing everyone's reveal...but later. Right now the sun is shining there is a boat waiting to depart, a bikini with my name on it because honey, I have not even begun to disintegrate yet!
