I am very excited because yesterday I received the first bunny canvas back. This one went to a friend who lives out in Mahnomen, Minnesota.
This is such amazing progress in this project.
My next steps are going to be going to Midland Plastic this week to see if I can find some clear and white 1/4″ acrylic to use in the display. I have an good idea as to what I’m doing for my display. I want to create an environment that the viewer can walk into and around and get a full 360° view of all the pieces of the collection. By making it so each piece is at a different, random height it removes hierarchical structure from the display, making it so that each piece is viewed as equal. This is important for me to accomplish. I don’t want any artist to feel like one work is better than another.
This design also keeps the viewer from feeling like they are running the gauntlet when interacting with the piece. (The figure is approximately 5’7″)
Everything is coming together nicely for this project. I just hope the cost of the display isn’t too much.
