2010: A Look @ Where We Go From Here
(aka: pioneering sticky note art)
2009 showed us the last of the foam installation board critters (at least for now) and opened the door for the post-it note critter. Only issue, what to post them to??
With an objective to display, the simplest solution seemed to be sticking them to a sheet of paper. However, this felt unnatural.
Truth be told, the only way I feel the post-it note critters work is to post them directly to the wall they are being displayed on.
But lets be honest, it's hard to find a exhibit hall that will let me stick post it notes directly to the wall, let alone draw on the wall with marker. I needed to find a alternative solution.
Solution 1: The altered book. Sticky notes and marker work great in old books. Only challenge is displaying.
I like the idea of displaying the altered books.. maybe on a book case or even constructing a shelf for the wall. I like the idea of people picking up the books, turning the pages.. might even attach a marker and let them write stuff in the books.
Solution 2: Boxes.
There just happens to be a stack of boxes in my studio. Boxes are fun to paint on, fun to sticky note to, and fun to marker on.
boxes are fun to stack, fun to stack books on, and can be placed anywhere from a gallery to a street corner.
So in 2010, be on the lookout for Boxes.
Stacks are standing by...
