From the Studio

thoughts on art and process in action from a contemporary artist

Write me for art: first letters…

with 4 comments


IMG_2993A few days ago I got my first mailed-in responses to the Write-Me-for-Art project.  I am nearly done hand-embroidering  the envelope of responses from the hospital, so I’m glad!  I also got an installment from a friend who brought me an envelope full of responses from a party.

I’m enjoying the variety of ways and kinds of responses I’m getting so far.  I’ve passed on the envelopes and instructions to friends and family in Chicago, Vermont, Maine, and Iowa.  I’ve passed the out personally in SF, New York and New Hampshire.

I try to do a large variety of people- age, occupation, location, style, culture…  I sought out a cousin who is more on the right-wing NRA type side of things because I do want a VARIETY of voices and if I’m left to the people I’m likely to see of talk with in the places that I would normally go that just won’t happen.  I’ve been stopped waiters, check-out counter folks, taxi drivers, riders on the bus, people in the park… so many different kinds.

If you want to be included in the project follow the instructions here. Please note the “handwritten” and “less than twelve words” parts!

There will be a tech component to this piece as well… coming.

The “Access” piece is still turning in my mind, but I’m putting it on the back burner until I finish this iteration of Identity Tapestry.  The “Write Me for Art” project is absolutely intended to be done in the between moments.

    • Absolutely if it is the language you grew up with or a language that is so much a part of you that you think and dream in it.
