APRIL 2015: A QUICK REMINDER...
(...and at this time, question perhaps... just exactly where does joy come from?)
...where do ideas come from? How long do they last? Are they ever really GONE forever? • Perhaps your sillier ideas, still lay in wait... disguised as notions... feeding up on who you're becoming... looking for the moment to pounce... WIll you recognize them? Do they even have a pale glimmer of familiarity? ...who the hell knows! At this point, I really just need some dumb reason to do this thing I seem totally driven to DO! :-) AND... away we GO!
...and where did it go? Well obviously to the "Assemblage Yard" ...then (coming soon)
APRIL 15, 2015: AND THEN SUDDENLY... THE FIRST MISSION UNFOLDS...
APRIL 16, 2015: COMPLETING THE FIRST MISSION INVIGORATES THE PROCESS...
APR 20: This whole thing grows legs (or is it wings) or better yet, ARMs after we completed first mission... Out for a coffee, the very next day... out comes the sketchbook... the structure of how these pieces will be built here, in this virtual big room with big white walls is laided out, AND... a more detailed (almost as detailed as the original drawn back in the 1980s) emerges... I miss drawing (and am quite out of practice)
references... coming soon
APRIL 18, 2015: THE SECOND TASK AT HAND [THE ASSEMBLAGE] BEGINS. A BIT OUT OF SEQUENCE... RIGHT ON SCHEDULE
APR 21 ...and then the dreaded notion of time creeps into the picture: "I learned to treat time as a gift, rather than a threat" - (me rethinks)
REFERENCE: current state of the assemblage •
APRIL 18, 2015: THE SECOND PART OF THE MATERIALS MISSION... UNFOLDS ACROSS A SMALL TRIANGULAR SECTION OF DOWNTOWN KINGSTON
APR 21 (later): Of course ALL OF THIS will have to be translated into an obtuse, fancy-pants (virtually unreal) "artists statement" :-)
...of course there will be links, references to this fella on the cross (coming soon)
APRIL 18, 2015: NOTES FLOW UPON THE COMPLETION OF... THE SECOND PART OF THE MATERIALS MISSION...
APR 21 - Just to spring the memory... After the morning first mission, the second thing to do that day was to go see the current show away out at the Modern Fuel... Basically a dry run of the date none of my online dating prospects saw fit to take me up on....
APRIL 19, 2015: NO PLANS FOR CONDUCTING THE NEXT PART OF THE MATERIALS MISSION, BUT MORE NOTES AND MORE ASSEMBLAGE
APR 21 Sunday saw me awake to more of the melancholy... BUT, the day ended well... very well! Rocks were tossed... things let go of... new things grabbed onto, to be held onto not so tightly? Not likely... not likely... as it would appear, I let go of nothing at all. (case in point)
APR 21 As I half suspected... much of this is going to become about the rigging itself... (and? What's with this "skewered again" business?)
references to The Assemblage, no doubt... but perhaps the mustachioed happy face will grow on us a bit (soon)
APRIL 20, 2015: JUST MORE NOTES AND A LITTLE ASSEMBLAGE
APR 21... I noticed (obsessed?) last night that the (heart) house was based on 10' x 10'... is this something I should look into? How doggedly should I pursue the factor of the dogmatic 3? hmmm... I mean the whole thing could begin to seem more obvious than I'd like (although, perhaps it's an obvious ruse) :-) ...arrgh, but it will have 4 walls... then he thinks, but, it will have six surfaces... (something tells me the little house will be resized...
APR 21... Obviously heart, mind and soul kinda stuck with me... (but that? That's just plain obvious) :-)
cross references... coming soon
APRIL 23, 2015 THIS ASPECT WILL LIKELY PROVE MORE IMPORTANT
there will be lots on geography... and missions (coming soon)
APRIL 23, 2015 AND THIS ASPECT? WILL IT PROVE MORE IMPORTANT?
...the dreaded social media links, coming soon
APRIL 25, 2015 MISSION THREE [OUTCOMES] BEGINS (apparently not) IN EARNEST...
APR 25... lets just say, MISSION THREE got off to an interesting start, with... punctuation... not sure what to say about this day really. Was last night another mission? If so, it was successful in spurring some thinking for the yet to be named 3rd element... AND it looks as though we can call it the ceremonial start to the MISSION... it looks like time will make it's play... TIME "is a gift, not a threat"...
APR 25 (EOD)... It was one of those sets of days that generated a story to be told another day. A big story? Oh, it will be told that way... A good story? Indeed it could be framed either way. Good in so much as although the arch was short, it's path, crisp, to the point... The better outcome, a flurry of sketchbook activity for this madness; work done on other job sites and... the possibility I might just sleep through this night. HOW MUCH MORE TIME, AND HOW MANY MORE TIMES? Which way and how far will I be flung... tomorrow?
this is where the cross references are going to start to be really useful... soon
APRIL 26, 2015 STRUGGLING WITH... HOW FAR FLUNG?
...struggling with the details of the (yet un-named) piece. The piece that was never started but most obsessed over... four years. While walking back from the point, the site of MISSION ONE part one, I imagined it afloat. I was imagining it in operation (getting quite the chuckle from that) as it flung folks here and there... I figured, if I were to start flinging folks, it may be best to have it out on a lake so that those flung folks would land in the water... Now then, can a human being survive being flung, catapulted from atop a near 100' pole into even water? This needs researching... • Oh, and we found some other things while out and about today as well • APR 27 From time to...
alone time • good time • bed time • time out
...time we seem to stumble across things can be used immediately. Reference for the nut and bolt assembly that attaches the erect to the supine; thoughts on these chairs and what they might mean (if you recall, each and every element will have meaning, if not more)... And then even more old and far too obvious artworks from the ancient art career... this one actually built then destroyed almost immediately. I believe I re-used the crane-like feature as the leg for a wall mounted kitchen table...
cross references... coming soon
APRIL 27, 2015 ARCHEOLOGY worthy of being
what's lurking in our past... cross references, coming soon
APRIL 29, 2015 PROGRAMMING NOTE: I HOPE I DIE BEFORE I GET OLD
On another note, what a beautiful sky this morning... AND "I hope I die before I get old"... how that pop-rock classic lyric line seems so utterly stupid now... die? before I get old? ...miss the punchline? • "Youth is wasted on the wrong people." (from It's a Wonderful Life)
