Disintegration Collaboration- The Reveal

Back in January, Seth of "The Altered Page" had a
project in mind, he called it "Disintegration

He wondered what would happen if he created an
art bundle, left it outside, and called on mother
nature to be his collaborator.

Little did he know he would inspire so many more
to join him in this endeavor. Today there are 120+
artists who are playing along. There are art
bundles everywhere- across state lines and
international borders.

On May 1st, we were to reveal our art
bundles to see how they have changed over the
course of several months.

You can see more 'befores' posted on the side
bar of Seth's blog and then visit the individual
artist's blogs to see their 'after' reveals.

Next up... Part II is to use some part
or all of the original (now somewhat disintegrated)
bundles to create a new work of art. No rules.

The next reveal will be August 1st.

The "before" in the wind...

the rain...

and the frost.

The "After" May 1st.

The copper has patina'd and lifted, some papers
have curled or fallen over.

I think the reflective copper tape and hanging
canvas have kept the birds from perching.

Overall the piece has stayed pretty much in tact.
Last week it was 104. So it had a chance to
bake in the sun.

Stay tuned for what comes next.

Thank-you Seth for encouraging us along
with this fun project!

Something to think about:

"Insight into change teaches us to embrace our
experiences without clinging to them -- to get
the most out of them in the present moment
by fully appreciating their intensity, in full
knowledge that we will soon have to let them
go to embrace whatever comes next.

Insight into change teaches us hope. Because
change is built into the nature of things,
nothing is inherently fixed, not even our own
identity. No matter how bad the situation,
anything is possible. We can do whatever we
want to do, create whatever world we want to
live in, and become whatever we want to be."

You have so much fun stuff on/in your bundle it should be a blast to work on the next part of this challenge.

I think your bundle changed the sky color to a magnificent blue.
Wonderful alchemy from your creation (smile)

Two of the three little pigs died as a result of Seth's project. Like your work, the third little pig used quality materials and good design.

The answer, my friend, was hangign in the wind.....great post and always something deep and inspiring and genuine.

Thought of you on Cinco de Mayo...SD being so close to a six paclk of Tres X's or Mudelo Negro.

My best.

What an awesome concept. And your bundle is weathering nicely. Like the others, I can't wait to see the finished(?) product...or is it another WIP (Work In Progress)?

Hope you're doing great there in SD. Take care.

Andrea, I need to ask you a question. How can I contact you?

I'm back in action:) Got the laptop back with a new motherboard atlast! Your bundle faired well, it did better than I would have though given the extremes of frost and farienheit. It looks much better here than at the cafe too! Looking forward to seeing what you do with your ingrediants!

What a magical looking bundle. It's a delight to the eye! Wise words about the importance of change and what a blessing it is in reality. I've been working on letting go of various things this year, things that have contributed to staleness in my life; so I'm taking these words directly to heart.

My partner and I really enjoyed reading this blog post, I was just itching to know do you trade featured posts? I am always trying to find someone to make trades with and merely thought I would ask.
