Opening Night for TEXT MESSAGE

leave a comment »

A few images from tonight.  The show was well put together and well attended and the piece was well received. There were some interesting differences that came up in which statements were mobbed and which were left untouched.   I’d say a half to a third of the yarn was used during the opening (100ish colors used).  It is the first time I’ve walked away from the piece when there was any statement left undone.  It’s hard to walk away knowing I won’t see the rest of it in action, but photographer friends have assured me they will get more images throughout the show.

I don’t know when I would get tired of doing this piece.  The different iterations make the series more interesting as a whole when you compare them against each other.  Cultural differences between cities really stand out.  I’d love to see it in different countries.

I had a number of enjoyable conversations and was very pleased to meet the other artists.  A good show and a good night.
