ART IN COMMUNICATION
Inspired by the “Exquisite Corpse” game of the Surrealists in the 20’s, and with the participation of a talented group of international artists, the “Exquisite Doodle” Artist Project required the players to doodle in succession on a little paper scroll set inside a small box. On this blog you’ll find the whole “Exquisite Doodle” Artist Project documented. Enjoy!
For the cover image of Mary Lou’s box I was inspired by how we first met - I had made a little work of art called “The Universe Conspires” for her gallery’s annual 100 artists group show (see bottom image). I wanted to make her cover have a similar feel, so I decided to use similar materials like paper, strings, and beads. I was also thinking about what kind of personal message I could be sending her, so what I came up with is "Night Flight." It’s a little reminder to fly - even if only at night.
Mary Lou will now get her chance to add to the box anywhere she wants, but with special focus on the paper scroll and the white interior. I can't wait to see what she decides to do!
