The funny thing about being on Sound
roster is you apply to do one thing, the proposal is accepted, and
they ask you to do something else entirely. It's OK, I get it. It's a
big project, there are endless variables, and in the end what I
proposed wasn't feasible. Whatever! I was grateful to be asked to
contribute and the challenge of having to conceive and execute a
project within strict temporal, spatial, and conceptual limits was just
what I needed to shake me out of my recent torpor. Since my assignment
was to decorate a 4-foot plywood star on behalf of the Cal Anderson Park
Alliance, I decided to make something at and about the park. I took
photos from particular spots night
and day and then interpolated them.
It's an idea I've had kicking around for a while and though this was an
first attempt I'd still like to push it further. OK?
