This page is the jumping off point for an ongoing project of temporary art pieces.
You can use the form below to give me a prompt in the form of directions, from which I will create an original, one-of-a-kind, temporary artwork of which you will receive a digital image. Below are some images of the materials I will be working with* as well as an (I hope…) up to date matrix of the quantity of variations on color and size of cubes that are my “palate” for these “paintings.”
While you are waiting to receive an art work back, here is a nice video on some conceptual art work by Sol Lewitt, who helped put cubes and installation art on the map. Sol felt that the art in Art was the artist’s idea, and he democratized artistic practice by ceding the act of creation. In the current cultural moment of 2020, half a century after he began working, I think the paradigm may have flipped- the act of creating itself, in the context of a proliferation of art making the world has previously never seen, is the act of art (and the democratizing effects of platforms which enable anyone to “create” an idea are our new reality). Below the form is an image of the type of prompt I receive, juxtaposed with some of the instructions for one of Sol’s drawings.
