Two Rooms has been put to bed and now I can get on to the next challenge of creating monumental fortune cookie fortunes for the field of good fortune in may. It was a lovely opening with abundant amounts of snacks for everyone’s enjoyment. Much to my surprise the lecture room was packed wall to wall and across the floor with some of the crowd spilling into the hallway where a speaker carried the audio of the talk I gave
I finally got the front corner area attached to the rest of the piece and that corner is now touching the ground providing some stability visually and physically. This piece is starting to share some qualities of the first dam stuhltrager piece i did in 2008. I also like being able to build off of a vent like I did when I first started weaving a stick piece in my studio in 2005. I guess this will be my nostalgic piece. Tomorrow I should get some time to start diving into the print studio and maybe make something print like.
Since I had been paying so much attention to room 1 I figured it was only fair to give some attention to the details in room 2. I have got the cords taped in place and the lighting set in room two but after leaving the piece on all day I still think I need to tweak the volume and settings a bit . It is a nice effect right now when I am in Room 1 I can hear room two fire off and then slowly decay until it switches off.
Day two was decent, beginning to enjoy the emergence of the piece from the vent and spilling into the space and the surrounding area. I am also falling more in love with this chair each day. I guess it is the first time that I have worked in a space that is so historic and has furniture to match it’s age.
Today I arrived in Milledgeville, Georgia, at Georgia College State University to begin work on Two Rooms, it opens next week. One room will be full of sound, but have few objects, the other room should be pretty full of stuff but have very little sound.
