The Ice Eggs
let's see what unfolds....
I wanted to create a type of street art that would be biodegradable. Since I had a bunch of water balloons laying around the house, i thought it might be interesting to fill them with colored water and then place them in the freezer in hope that when frozen they would resemble eggs. I could have been more pleased with the results.
First, we gathered some pine straw.
Next, my art assistant arranged the pine straw to look like a nest.
Pine straw is an easy medium in which to sculpt nests.
The eggs were brought to the location in a cooler so they would remain fresh until we were ready to display them.
Which we did.
And the results were fantastic!
Then we sat on a bench and watch all the people stop and check out the nest.
I want to create a larger version of this project... more eggs, more nests. My freezer is full of water balloons as I type. I also plan to do a beach version with sand nests... check back next week...
