200 tiny lights glowing in red, green, blue, orange or
yellow made from LEDs, sparkly beads, liquid plastic, magnets and a little plastic box
are being placed along 14th Street from Union Square to 8th Avenue nighty in groups of 20 to be gathered. These little lights with their numbers on the front represent that delusive or misleading hope that somehow
with the evoking of a magic number all our dreams will come true.
If you found a Will-O-The-Wisp box. Click on YOUR magic number below and see what it really means! Then email, tweetor instagram and tell me all about finding your work and your magic number. See Me!
(Hey, if you want to reserve the light in your Wisp just open the box and un-tape it. Cool huh? If your battery runs out don't just throw it away. Recycle. AND, if you want to light your number back up Bed Bath and Beyond sells the batteries.)
I was in the Egyptian wing of the Metropolitan
the other day and happened upon tiny turquoise statues called shawabits. They were created, one for
each day of the year, and placed in the tomb to answer questions the dead
pharaoh would need to ask once he awakens. I created my own from the casting of
a small votive first communion figure I found in a Catholic supply shop in
Louisville, a bit of paint, and some found objects – thread, string, trinkets,
bells, beads, etc. They will be placed on top of ledges, tucked in corners, looking down on you from overhead beams throughout the subway stations, museums and streets - watching, waiting, there
to ask and answer questions, beginning in late August.
Fifty-fifth series, Pilgrimage SeashellsA pilgrimage is a journey or search for moral or spiritual significance typically to shrine or other location to a person's beliefs and faith. It can be to a holy land like Jerusalem or
Mecca or a visit to sites within a region or locale.I am using my pilgrimages for discovery and re-evaulation. I have devised a few paths
to take and I will mark them as I journey. I have borrowed the seashell imagery of the Camino de Santiago(The Way of St. James or St. James' Way)in Spain for this project.I cast various
shells have gathered on my travels, scallops, cockles, conches in liquid
plastic and attached them to a bit of handmade or Japanese paper highlighting
them with a bit of paint. Did you see one? Tell me about your discovery.
