Can I please take a moment to geek out for a second?

People Place Disruption premieres on April 28th as a virtual event with dance film and discussion as part of Nimbus Dance’s Spring 2021 season: A collaborative work which draws together dancers and choreographers of Nimbus Dance with Jersey City visual artists to reflect back and process the exceptional confluence of social, environmental, health, and economic upheaval that our community, and the world face at present. The project aims to affirm and empower artists and collaborative action, exploring underlying webs between people, place and the disruptive times we live in. .
I was first taken with Jacob Hashimoto images on Pinterest and found myself collecting his works for my inspiration board over and over again.
So imagine how tickled I was to learn TSGNY was hosting a virtual artist talk with him this Fall.
I had many questions about how he assembles his kites, the materials he uses and how he transports his large installation works. He answered all this and more.
It was an illuminating and inspiring talk. See for yourself…
Made progress on this angle of the Shopping Cart.
Flipping the cart over to see what I see and tackle the other POV.
There was no undercarriage on my cart so, I’m weaving one to hold more baggage…
I had pulled a particular rope to weave on the cart, but then the cart had other plans when I found this Caution tape in my yarn stash…
The shopping carts congregating at the back of the construction site across the street have been calling to me…
Rose Gold and Bronze Spray Paint
