create-a-thing-a-day month officially comes to a close. tomorrow i will write about the experience, though i am still processing much of it. I am not ready to stop, and did consider doing it for a year (but i do have other projects that need my attention). we are tentatively planning to do it again (possibly in july), and i will be attending a meeting in new york in a couple of weeks to discuss future plans. the project was created in conjunction with eyebeam and nyu (tisch).
while i am not embarking on this project for an audience (but rather for my own creative growth), out of curiosity how many of you would be interested in watching me go through this process again?

i’ve never done that before.
one more day to go.

i would like to colour this. maybe tomorrow.
an interesting exercise, i highly recommend it. just when you think you’ve got everything, you remember something else.

this is not exactly the execution i was going for but i wanted to get this one out.
description: an interactive calendar in which the user tears off a piece of paper for each day. the “days” once torn are then strung together in a kind of garland. the process of displaying the days that have passed is intended to make one more aware of the passing of time. (while also reusing materials which have outworn their function.) in a sense the passage of time is transformed into a celebration.

today i had a creative block, you have to figure going for 28 days straight it’s bound to happen. so i just wanted to get this one out, and get a fresh start tomorrow. the exercise is as follows (click image for full results):
1. Choose an experience from your day (this is subject #1). today i was speaking to a friend about intuition.
2. Ask a friend for a subject. (subject #2) My husband told me to research the sound artist Toshiya Tsunoda.
3. Conduct research on both subjects, and make connections between them.
note: the point at which you start to believe that they have nothing in common, is where it usually starts to get interesting. at some point in my research i found a common denominator which was fascinating to me; both subjects are based on the reading of electromagnetic fields! upon figuring this out I triumphed and felt like my work was done here.
off to read in bed. looking forward to tomorrow.
