Daily art update 5 -- endless highway
This year my daily art is different from past years in that I don't make a piece every day with the same format that I can easily photograph and post to my blogs. Instead I have a theme -- maps -- but no rules as to what kind of art I should do each day with a map. Some days I might be making a little book, other days a collage/painting, other days a 3D construction. Some days I work on a continuing project without trying to precisely document the beginning and end of that particular day's work.
I haven't reported on my progress in quite a while, so maybe it's time for an update.
One of the new formats that I've been doing more than once is what I call "endless highway," in which I cut small bits from the road atlas or other map source and join them to others. Sometimes I mount these constructions in accordion books; sometimes I make cubes.
It's amusing to see a highway go from Cleveland to Honolulu to Twin Falls.
