Sean actually got some good documentation with his fancy camera and made a mini-documentary about it.  You can watch it on vimeo.  Thanks, Sean!

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

This guy's Surprised To Be Alive.

a pirate... (w/reflection)

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:

Art for Walls

These
collages/mix-media art Pieces
are sitting around my house,
waiting to be adopted by someone.

My prices are indecently low.

There is also a bulging pile of
materials
ready to become new art,
(as soon as I

-book a new show and/or clear out some of this old stuff…

Do not hesitate to mention
if you like a Piece!

*I also sell framed prints of some of the           photo-collages                seen on this blog.

 

 

 

Oh I also absolutely adore     Peer Reviews   (absurd/ analytical/ thoughtful), added on to the “Comments” of my blog posts,

because 1- I like to read
and 2- I am kind of like a flower, who needs attention in order to bloom.

I pay for peer reviews (if they took you over 30 minutes to write) in ATEN Hours.


2011 Intentions

(preface–  I need a laser-pointer mouse that attaches to one finger, so I can gesture at the wall and click like a castanet player.  Has anyone invented that yet?)

 

Introduction – –
… Excuses, excuses …

We are observing the duality of existence

via a tussle between The Urge to Organize

and The Stream of Consciousness.

PROCLAMATION: “Then Hereby Be It Known That This is Amanda’s Year To ”

2011 is my year to... and now I will Elaborate slightly on Items 1 & 4 & 6.

Column I:                         Column II:
make books                      focus on writing cohesively
art objects                         writing with goals in mind, such as a grant
collaging notes                 organizing thoughts
write letters                      blog= structure, format, place to deliver installments of meaningful words
ITEM OF BUSINESS #1:  List Of Various Blog Topics and Sub-Topics

Luckily, I can come back to this post later and add that.  For now, Good Night!

(afterword– Or, how about a keyboard-device that is wearable and allows you to swing your arms while typing?  Someone, please invent that, too. (Thanks!))
