Residency Day 3

Activism, Art, Exhibition, Installation, Residency, Works In Progress

Technically, this is Day 3 of my Residency.

Day 1 was the key hand off/orientation day.

Day 2 was a crazy shopping spree–Harbor Freight, Lowes, Michaels, BedBathBeyond, DanielSmith, DickBlicks.

 

Today is moving day.  Relocating to a shipping container downtown is hard when you have a cozy home studio.  It’s not plush, or decked out for comfort.  It is an actual shipping container, complete with dust and cobwebs.  I have the combo for the Honey Bucket on the fenced in premises, should the need arise.  Otherwise, everything you see here in the photo–this is it.  But I am excited to have the time and the space to really push myself creatively. The final installation will visually combine my film, music, art and activism — for the first time ever.

By the end of the day, I waxed and fused my first round of decorative papers.  I wanted to see how the encaustic medium would affect the translucency of the paper, and how delicate/sturdy the papers would be, since they would be hanging on their own (not backed by wooden panel.)
