Color me excited! I love where my second score from Sherri Lynn's book is heading. It could be my favorite improv work yet. Really, really!
Upon return from our week of baby's therapy (which went smoothly and hospital-free, thanks for asking!) I pressed and photographed my finished "string sheets." Here are the saturated sets above and the low volume/low contrast sheets below. For details on how I planned and assembled the sheets, see my getting started post.
And here's my high contrast, black + white sheet. Hoping it adds some spunk to the work!
While making the sheets I brainstormed the next, crucial step - using
them. In her book, Sherri invites us to give the finished sheets a good
stare down, ponder different scenarios and then choose one to explore. My brain kept returning to angles, specifically triangles. How would
freeform cut triangles sew together? What kind of movement could I
create with those stripes? How could I be sure that the background
sheets (the low volume/low contrast) allowed the other sheets to carry
Pondering is all well and good, but cutting... cutting is what makes things happen in my world.
I do believe there's some magic to be had here!
