I had planned on showing "cord" and getting more folks to braid into the piece but it was raining. i decided i wanted to still be a part of this rad event so i showed up with some pink string to gay up the trees. I am really excited about burl. burl are basically tree tumors. i have been doing some research on them. i think they are so magical and beautiful, there is some transformative about them. disease. healing. mutation. anyways it was less than romantic working in the rain and feeling ignored by folks there. i often feel sad about how my community responds to visual art. which is hard because i make art about building community.
but i feel good about the work i did and i am planning on growing this body of work. it reminds me of sacred geometry.
