Disintegration Admiration Project -

"Stimulus Package I (Studio Documentation)"
manipulated digital photograph by Mick Mather
I've done my first 3-dimensional study for the Disintegration Admiration project that Seth is doing over at his blog, The Altered Page ... it's an interesting idea and you should go have a look. I may or may not create another, improved design since this one is sure to disintegrate totally in the first heavy rain. On the one hand, that's exactly the point; on the other hand I might like to get more than a few days of documentation. Whatever I decide, this seems to be kick-starting my outdoor activity for the coming year and I feel great about that!

Post Script: I installed the piece this afternoon. You can see the video at No Matter What Shape-The Archive.

I need to see the cheerleader before I decide if I like the pom pom.

It was very windy all night with snow already this morning. The sun isn't all the way up so I can't get a good look at the installed project yet.

How very...awesome! I love that you are doing an admiration project and it will involve that lovely element of disentegration!

I am going to a 'muse' tomorrow. A bunch of artist's working along side musicians they've never met..while creating an 'on the spot' piece of public art from the things found in the immediate environment! Wahoo. I shall hardly sleep tonight!

Please don't rain...please don't rain...

I hope you went over to No Matter What Shape-The Archive to see the movie of the installed piece.

A muse? How fascinating. You're going to document this, yes?

A tip of the hat back to you, Seth. As I mentioned, this is my first land art sculpture for 2009 and your project came along at just the right time for me.

Enjoyed watching your bundle in the actual act of disintegration, as I do mine,every day.Yours is a bit more dramatic, shall we say?!

Thanks for stopping by - what with all the work to do at the cabin and all. I suppose my bundle was quite dramatic in that strong wind. It's faring quite well in spite of that and we've had little rain to really get the disintegration properly started. More to come as we continue to check things day to day. :)

It won't be long before said day and there's going to be a bit of surprise for some. Then of course, Part II of the project ... I'm already thinking about what I might do. :)
