Space 111's Impromptu Art Installation
Wednesday I went to the weekly figure drawing class over at Space 111. Afterwards I invited everyone over to Storkland/Counts Bros. to see all the weird odds and ends and give me advice about making some art out of it that I could display in my new loft. I showed them the display I put up in the window with all the weird old stuff I found.
I used a couple of the old ladders and put up the Standard furniture sign, the ink bottle, an adding machine (the only one I could lift), the thread box and various spools, and other odds and ends.
They asked if they could make their own display, and I said "heck yeah!" In a whirlwind of activity they put together a better display in 15 minutes than the one that had taken me days.
They used items which I had previously found less interesting: mason jars, mirrors, glass medicine bottles, glassware, balls of string.
My pictures don't do it justice, so if you're in the area walk by and take a look for yourself.
