A Frog Eat Frog World for Light Grey Art Lab’s Macro & Micro show by Celia Krampien.
More work here.
People have been asking me now for a while about when the Calendar of Tales website would go live. And the answer is, today. It’s really beautiful. They did an amazing job. Go and look.
So much wonderful art was made by people for this project.
(You can see a lot of the art at http://keepmoving.blackberry.com/desktop/en/us/ambassador/neil-gaiman.html along with my comments on the winning images.)
"Stop thinking about art works as objects, and start thinking about them as triggers for experiences. (Roy Ascott’s phrase.) That solves a lot of problems: we don’t have to argue whether photographs are art, or whether performances are art, or whether Carl Andre’s bricks or Andrew Serranos’s piss or Little Richard’s ‘Long Tall Sally’ are art, because we say, ‘Art is something that happens, a process, not a quality, and all sorts of things can make it happen.’ … [W]hat makes a work of art ‘good’ for you is not something that is already ‘inside’ it, but something that happens inside you — so the value of the work lies in the degree to which it can help you have the kind of experience that you call art."
I think I am finally done with this, This one was a bit of a bear, after about 5 false starts and making every possible mistake I could have made I am definitely ready to let this one go, warts and all.
I will post a process gif soon, I just have to make it first.
