AEDM 2009: DAY 06




Soooooooooooooooo I had a little scrap from the previous pages and thought I´d use it up today by cutting it up.
Slowly I saw an allegory of my life emerge. You can consider these pages as still a work in progress.

This is the point when I think it is a very good thing my mom doesn´t have a computer so she can´t find this as it would freak her out. :D

It seems orderly, contained, with a straight beginning and end (the two lines at the top left and bottom right). Lots of pretty squares, a happy mouse from ds´s sweets, a house that might be Shakespeare´s mom´s (can´t remember, it´s been in my scraps box for ages) to represent our time in the UK, a picture with loads of people (I´m a Happysnappy and I have loads of people "in my picture" ), the crown? (uh ...) , my initial (I´m so NOT a pink girl but pink keeps popping up in my work), there I am, the little blue snail (word game, anyone?) and "See the world (meant in a cyber way, this is what I´ve been doing).

You have noticed it, haven´t you?

The squares are not connected! They don´t touch each other, there are not connecting lines, dots, whatever. Each part of me (of my life) doesn´t touch the other. That is where the disconnection is. Oh, my! It seems I will be discovering a lot this month through both projects.

Does your food touch on the plate? LOL

What is the next step with these pages? I look forward to watching your creative process and reading your reflections.

I don't see it so much as disconnection as I see leaving room for MORE> Lookout world - Paula's not finished YET!

Serena said...

Hi Paula....WOW, you've been busy! I enjoyed catching up with your blog today and hey, I think you're more connected than you realise. :)

Something always touches some thing. some where or some how.
I can see it touching white paper and the album is touch I would guess a table or something.

Coffee is on.

Oh, I like that realization you had from your art. However, it might be that you need to compartmentalize your life a little bit, to protect certain aspects. Sometimes this is healthy :)

Words are funny. You are talking about how your art shows you are "disconnected" but you are "connecting" to the message, ha-ha. Art is a process of self-discovery so it will be interesting to see what you find. We are all connected and disconnected in many ways and how is the exciting discovery!

I love when art helps you make certain connections in your life. Also...you didn't mention this...but I wonder if it has any significance as well--the one page all the squares are below the line--the other they are above. Could this possibly suggest the things in your subconscious (below the line)--and things in your material life (above the line).

Just a thought.

Peace & Love.
