OFFER: “Roaming Apples” Installation

I would like to install this apple “wallpaper” somewhere new.  It is a work of art that mutates and changes (panels are rearrange-able, expandable…), and it was made to be in a domestic space.

Do you have a nook that could use some soft colors, an artistic touch?  This wallpaper = the comforting rhythm of reflective imagery  +  a hand-made “each one unique” aesthetic.

I currently have 32 panels (each roughly 8.5″ x 6.5″) which will be arranged site-specifically.

Here they are as installed currently:

Jan-April 2011

And in their original context as part of the Collection Rert + LMNL show, “It’s About Time”:

March-April 2008, L_M_N_L gallery

If accepting offer through the Austin Time Exchange Network, my fee is just 1.5 hours (approximate amount of time it will take to disassemble and reassemble).

If you want the wallpaper to be expanded via creation of more panels, I would love to.  For this, donation$ accepted 🙂


LAST (Odd) Saturday…

Gee-willickers, TIME is constant. tick-tock.  Keeps on moving, just like this wind, here.  (I live in the “Blackland Heights” neighborhood of East Austin, atop a hill with an almost constant breeze from the South.  Across the street, just downhill a little to the South, is an elementary school.  Behind us are the backyards of neighbors, some with shady trees and dense weeds, some with hard-worked garden rows, protected by solid fence.  There used to be orchards here, some say… )  Anyway,
Here is our Documentation of APRIL 9th, 2011 (minus a video of a new musical instrument, which is coming soon…):

After Luke (our Participant #1  in the Social art Experiment which is “Odd Saturdays”) tinkered awhile to invent a fantastic use for glass bottles, he spent a lil time in the Studio, tidying up and doodling with the special treasures.

the objects in the studio have personalities and prefer sitting next to their friends

An Albert Einstein cyborg.

Chad came out for awhile and SORTED.  He managed to pop open some deep pockets of time-accumulation, and then he took some scientific-ish shots of these details:

As it was already a hot day, salad with hard-boiled egg and cran-rasp. spritzers were had by all.

In the afternoon, SIGN-PAINTING was undertaken as a serious motion to advance the cause of RE-aRT.  Unfortunately for Luke (or fortunately, if he’s into action-adventure scenarios), the master list of JOBS changed

after he had already begun painting.  The term palimpsest was discussed.  The list continued to change long after Luke had to journey forth into the rest of his day.

...work-in-progress...

I enjoyed the day very much.   I became re-aware of how much work there is to do, which is invigorating.  And I made this picture:

It’s Puppet Season Again

Yesterday Molly and Twyla made pretty good use of the puppet stage!  I would have proof, but the camera ran out of juice.

April 16th & 17th is the weekend of our next Junkyard Casserole.  So soon!  The self-serve puppet stage will be open and eager for action, so pack your favorite small friend before heading over to 2608 Rogers for the most entertaining shopping experience you will find under the sun.
