We're finishing up in my collage class but I still need to do one more collage for my final next Tuesday. It's been a busy couple of months trying to fit in class work with everything else in my schedule but it's been worth it. I am a deadline oriented artist and having assignments that are due at a specific time helps me get things done instead of being something I will do "someday". Here is an example of one of those projects. It's been talked about, moved around, assembled and disassembled countless times but it is finally glued together and ready for finishing details .......because it was due today. I stayed up too late and I'm tired now but after years of talking about it I'll soon be able to call it done! I need to work out how to hang it (it's very heavy) and I'm still messing with the wires but otherwise I'm happy with the way it came out.
The name of the piece is "Disconnect" I mentioned in a previous post that it is a commentary on my love/hate relationship with technology and our society's growing disconnect between the real people and things in our lives and our virtual experiences. The inspiration for this came after a discussion with one of my sons whose life sometimes revolves around computers more than people.
