|a new crazy stencil for this installation. this took 12+ solid hours to draw and cut out all those little tiny spaces.|
today i worked most of the day at foam city, while mindy held down the print shop in the garage. 'county fair' is going to be exhibited again (install in a week), so i've been busy re-addressing some of its issues. after showing in fort wayne, there were some broken parts i had to glue back together, fix, or just scrap. plus there were some functional and aesthetic issues that i wanted to clean up and i just cannot resist adding new parts to this installation.
here are some other things i've added or changed since that last time i installed county fair.
|a little shameful advertising|
|the fair queens got a face lift via the lens from an overhead projector (thank you lorie amick).|
it's pretty cool when you spin them around behind the lens.
|the ducks now float in a wastewater pond, a la seurat's 'sunday on la grande jatte' (hence the french)|
|and there's a new tilty whirl. not quite done yet. there's a fun little addition that i haven't yet completed.|
so while i was smashing, screwing, sawing, spraying, and scavenging, mindy was hard at work in the garage print shop turning out a new run of cards, using a new technique. more on this tomorrow as we let the inks dry :).
