Next Art Project

While continuing to find work work I am following up on all my projects with the assumption I will be employed before long. I simply cannot keep this up not working because I have no more resources.

Issues on the Table

Issues on the TableMy next installation piece is a life-size dinner table situation that will tell a story. The table is turned on it’s end and there is a corruption of the whole thing as it progresses from top to bottom. While one end is perfect the other is complete chaos. It is the story of parental verbal abuse toward a child and the scars left behind by it.

My rendering is a little out of date and I have evolved this since it’s original look more than a year ago. It’s time to refine the concept and get this thing built. I put some wish list items on my Facebook for this but have a feeling I could do just as good at some of the local thrift stores.

Originally I was going to have it look like a regular table setting, standing on four legs. The I wanted observers to be able to see the words on it better  and have been toying with ways to make that happen.

  • suspend it sideways in the air with the chairs around it at the base
  • let is stand on one end with chairs around it
  • or shorten it all and make it like just less than 2 feet tall

In the last case observers can see it from high above and possibly still get the message.

I keep changing my mind about the way it is displayed, but as I write this the 3rd method seems most desirable because it could be hung on a wall too. That might be cool!

Anyway, check out the project pages linked on this site and on the Facebook and feel free to help make it happen.
