WCA Balance: An Artist's Collaborative Game

The three photos above are of the final piece created. I have played off the idea that as our personal life history evolves, so does that of the earth. And so, while humans travel through their lives, each one must consider the impact they have on the natural world. This altered book is titled "Create Artificial Balance."
This is the second piece I created in the "game." Playing off the color orange and the concept of "being carried" from my partner. Titled " The Love Song of the Mosquito."

WCA Balance: An Artist's Collaborative Game

This is my first (of 3 pieces) created for the WCA-Michigan Chapter Artists' Collaboration based on the theme of "Balance". Each pair of artists creates a series of works with the process of collaboration recorded through "call and response exchanges". This will result in a final work by each participating artist.
A "traveling" exhibit is to be presented at 3 different galleries throughout the state of Michigan. The first incarnation of the exhibit will be hosted by The Gallery in the Duderstadt Center at the University of Michigan, opening May 7 and closing May 31, 2010.
My theme for "Balance" in this altered book piece is Natural-Man Made. Highlighting the idea that it is necessary for humans to balance these elements to live in harmony with the earth.
