Carla Sonheim had a great lesson about moving art, inspired by Alexander Calder.
I used leftover papers painted on both sides to make these little changing landscapes. While I was making them I thought about inner landscapes. Several ideas came along.
- You can use them for communicating your mood when words are not an option.
- When they are closed nobody can see the inner beauty. Same with a person. When you are closed and maybe protect your vulnerability you also hide your inner beauty.
So moving art is a very adequate term but I like to call this changing art because you can change the view of it. I made a litte video of the first two I made. As you see they are also little books. I hope you like them as much as I do.
