On March 22nd while continuing my studio purge, we discovered a couple large tubs full of scrap material taking up space. In an effort to pass on a little creative inspiration to those around me, I thought I would offer a free box of scrap to anyone interested, in exchange for documenting the process. Within 24hours of that first – admittedly off-the-cuff facebook post, and following eblast, we had over 50 responses! People from literally around the globe wanted in! We actually ran out of scrap and had to limit the offer to the first 50 responses. The next day we packed 50 boxes and sent them out into the world inspiring creative High-Jinx from Australia to Brooklyn and pretty much everywhere in between!
Everyday since March 22 we have been sent images that amaze! The enthusiasm, joy, and unleashed creativity that came across our computer screens was inspiring and completely unexpected! Our plan was to post images of all the finished work in a Cyber Art Show opening on Earthday.
Well, it is a little past due, and I dare say, well worth the wait! Here IT IS! ThE MosT AhhHMAAZing CybeR ArT ShOW to daTe! You can scroll down through all the lovely images to have a look at the over 50 images of textile recycling artists far and near. Stay tuned here over the next couple weeks where a select group of these makers will be featured with articles dedicated to their process.
