As Covid19 has turned my world upside down it has been challenging to begin this project. We, myself and the poets have had some meetings, some ZOOM meetings and exchanged some emails.
Our physical exhibit was moved from October to November at The Old CourtHouse Arts Center. Now, I can’t say that I am not grateful for the extra time, but it speaks to the uncertainty of our times and the need to be flexible and patient. We have been moved to another gallery, which gives us the opportunity to have more space. I have requested the small vault space. I have a vision of my art installation in that space. But, again uncertainty and patience to know if I will actually have that space.
Here are my beginning sketches exploring my ideas – how the art installation evolves – some ideas are rejected, revisited, expanded on and/or refined:
So, I will proceed with my concept and build in alternative scenarios. Not unlike our social quarantine status this art project is fluid. Art installations by their nature need to adapt to the situation, the space and the time.
