Emergency Art

Had a snap decision to make last weekend. New art was needed to fill 100 feet of gallery space. The theme of the group show is "Women Who Broke the Rules."The question was: Could I create an installation piece of approximately 25 feet and have it installed within 24 hours?

28 hours later I walked out of the gallery having succeeded. I broke a few of my own rules in making the piece, including incorporating failed ink drawings and paintings with the more successful imagery. (Haven't photographed it, yet.)

Personally the piece was very successful. Breaking rules is what creativity is all about. Opens the windows and doors to new avenues of thought. The little grey cells are now snapping to attention right and left, smashing into each other, procreating madly.
