It is summer and here is a re-run. But you may not have seen it, I hardly did! It was not even linked into my Video Category. I enjoyed watching it, it has inspired me to make a few more. This was first posted October 29 2006, just a month or so into the project. I intended to keep making videos, but just doing the sketches took over my life. The time to bring out some of the best in the project with music, narration & images is still ahead! Even more I’d like to make them about the stuff I am doing now. Stay tuned.
The video re-captures for me how my journey into art began. If I say so myself I like the closing line, “What I want has very little to do with it.”
Last Friday we had the launch of the project, the real life physical one with food & wine. Many people came along, and I am very pleased, thanks for your interest & enthusiasm!
It was quite amazing to see all those pictures up on the wall – and to think that only a couple of months ago there were none! If you have photos from the night – please send, I was too busy to take any! I have a bit of video from the ending, I’ll spliced that together:
I was pleased how easily people valued the project as a whole and the way I am cooking up something. A common remark is: “I wonder what number 800, or 1000 will look like?”. One person said: “It’s a performance.” well observed, I do find my self unexpectedly on a stage. “It is not only how you are doing it, but what you are doing.” Right, very Louis Kahn. “At the end of alchemy is a miracle.” “Trust the impulse, return to the impulse.”
This is the first of an unfinished series. I love the YouTube video that was made for the Bob Dylan 2006 album “Modern Times” I began making sketches from that video a while back and wanted to put the whole series up in one go. I have more to do! They have been challenging. However, I will give them a category, and so eventually they can all be seen on the blog in one go anyway.
