2016, papers, money, pen, hobby grass, stamps, holes, 19 x 12 inches.
I made an artwork with Arthur’s fourth grade class called Poetry Tree. Each person in the class wrote poetic words relating to their nationalities in bubble writing. I cut each word out of the stamps and money associated with each nationality. The insides of the bubble letters were leftover. I glued the “negative” shapes close to each other and let these grow like branches. I needed some flowers to bloom, so I used a Spirograph to make blossoms. I am interested in recycling. I am interested that out of loss and nothing comes something. I am interested in how things grow. I am interested in the eternally spiraling movement of everything in the cosmos.
