Exhausted by Art
I'm exhausted--got home at midnight having spent twelve hours helping bink (below, right) with her DVD to ART project.
Twenty-some people came and stitched four hundred cardboard DVD covers into squares this afternoon, then bink & I made them into a quilt and and hung it on the 12-foot-high wall.
Whereupon several squares threatened to fall apart and we spent the evening doing emergency surgery.
There'll be paper and pens for people to write out hopes, dreams, prayers and tuck them into the DVD pockets, like people tuck prayers into the chinks of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem.
Thank-you to all who sent yarn, ribbons, and shoelaces.
The wall really looks great. The main event will be the sculpture bink's making out of the DVDs, but I think the wall is maybe just as cool.
If you're in town, come for the opening reception!
It's this Friday, October 29.
