I’ve combined a coffee can with a coffee mug to form a sculpture. Add pep to your step by getting shot by a buzzmug.
Everyday at midnight another day in the calendar passes.
I’ve selected ice cube trays to represent the calendar.
The ice cube tray I used was 7×2. Add three trays side by side and you have a 6 week calendar.
I started with the dimension of my hanging calendar 26″x13″ as the overall size for the drawing. It then became dyptic because of the representational (positive) days spent and the (negative) days ahead.
The blue wash is a chemical formula used in printmaking known as a cyanotype.
The cyanotype is sensitive to light and exposes a bright blue.
Because the calendar comes from the sun, I see this as the ideal medium to represent time passing.
An array of dishes catching.
Condiment cups and tacks. Equal in width to my wingspan.
My arms stretch out and so do the cups.
Ketchup is gathered with a Catch dish.
Radio, light, radar waves are gathered by a dish.
Game play of an athlete is often limited to their wing span. An athletes graspable catch dish has limitations.
Drive in a figure 8 from noon to one.
As a portal for stargazing, the viewer of this public sculpture lays face up within the cones imagining their place in space. This will provide a temporary sense of enlightenment beyond your average look into the sky.
I chose to incorporate a few artists themes in the proposal: Carl Andre’s Equivalent series(120 bricks in different configurations). Tom Friedman’s cups photograph as a guide to the layout of the drawing. I’ve included a reference to Alighiero & Boetti’s Annual Lamp because of natural occurances that happen without notice. These themes are important to me and have some connection to what I’m thinking about as I submit this proposal.
