Artfest 2011 Gallery Art } House of Eggcellent Inspiration
I had so much fun coming up with this participatory art piece:) This is a little wooden bird house that is filled with seven "inspiration" eggs.
Each egg represents an art-making technique (line marks, painting, collage, found poetry, image transfer, frottage and stencilling). The idea is to tip the bird house until one of the eggs falls out of the opening and the word on the egg will be your starting point for the day.
I also made a companion mini-zine that elaborates on each technique in more detail. Go to the corresponding page and crack open the egg. On the left are possible materials to use and on the right a list of applications for those tools or materials.
I attached a strap on the back of the house to store the zine. My hope is this little house and it's "eggcellent" inspiration will help someone discover new ways to approach art making.
