This artwork is of a Christmas box. The original box was made of wooden cube-like blocks. There were eighty eight blocks. The blocks were glued together to make the box and individually painted. A sealer was then applied. There are hinges holding the lid. A picture of the box was taken and it was computer altered to give the artwork shown.
This artwork can inspire poetry. A poet could write about:
- What could be in the box and the significance of it.
- The idea of individual pieces making a whole.
- The idea of tradition, as shown by the red and green coloration.
- The idea of making something by hand.
- The idea of gifts.
it’s actually work,
building a tiny dog house,
despite the small size
This artwork was made of wooden sticks glued together. A picture was taken, the picture was cropped, and there was computer alteration of the background.
The last few peppercorns, just one layer thick, at the bottom of the mill. Little, pointed, black spheres – waiting. A whole column. Hundreds. Turned and ground and spread. Dust is still at the bottom. Little black specks. Some white. Some brown. A smell. Aroma. The layer waits for the turn. Soon parts will disappear. Then a quarter. Then a half. They all will fall in. And soon they are dust.
wood is fed
