Daily art -- whatever happened to the bundles?
When I wrote last week about my various daily art endeavors, Sandy asked how I ever decided to display my bundles, my weekly art project in 2011. I wish I had an answer.
As I made my bundles or packages, I simply deposited them into a big shopping bag in the closet under the stairs with the luggage. My thought was that someday perhaps I could find an opportunity to display them all together. I still think that would be a nifty idea, but so far I haven't found such an opportunity. At the end of the year I did photograph all of the bundles (except from my week at the beach; those bundles were MIA for a year and a half and have only recently resurfaced) but not well enough to make the photos into a little book or anything. an obvious first step would be to reshoot them on a better background than my green cutting mat.
collages, this year's daily art project. They are display-friendly because I chose to use the same size support throughout the year (old library card catalog cards) but I haven't figured out what to do with them. An easy solution would be to mount them in an album but that seems a bit unimaginative. If I ever have the opportunity to show them in public I'd probably go low-tech and simply pin them to the wall.
Here they are now.
her book about the project is magnificent and you can get one on Amazon for 99 cents.
