To prepare for the event, where I was tasked with designing an interactive art piece, I researched kaleidoscopes, practiced making them, and even worked with one of those plastic spiral doodads from childhood. See my first post about that, here.
Some early attempts:
Beating Lights provided me with a 5 x 5 foot tarp to paint on. Oddly enough, I think the tarp was designed to repel paint. We made it work. I drew out the basic repeating shapes of a kaleidoscope: square, circle, triangle, repeat (maybe not in that order). We set out paints and brushes for people to play with. They had at it while listening to the great tunes.
I realize that my arting has been different these days. I’m not popping up with my prints at events, I’m live arting at events. I like this. I like both. I like the mural I started on the fence of The Union House. They hooked me up with some paint! I also used chalk, so we’ll see how it changes over time. The event got shadowy and then it got dark, and the photos of my mini mural capture that. A few people contributed along the way, as well!
Beating Lights events are right up my ally! They’re always full of good vibes, good tunes, and interactive arting elements. A friend of mine got her first tattoo at this show!
