I downloaded keri smith’s “100 ideas” and started doing a few of the activities. One of them is to layer pages from a magazine, cut them into shapes and make a collage. I did this today during my art time with Gigi (my three year-old) and came up with this.
Interestingly, I didn’t know what many of the images would be and the words, “start something” and “start planning your trip” were among the shapes that I cut blindly– not knowing what I was cutting because it was hidden in the layers. I had also randomly chosen the definition for “destination” and a fortune cookie fortune off of my desk to include them without even knowing what they said. I didn’t even know how cohesive the themes were until I put them together.
This is what I call oracular art. I guess I’d better start something. 🙂
