Artists are poetic problem solvers. Artists solve problems by exposing the unseen parts of the world, mix them with their creative force. Artists create new relationships between people and environment and the object.

I purpose to make a wall hanging weaving out of human hair weave wefts. This work attempts to reference 1970’s fiber arts, using contemporary materials.
I propose to develop a comics by number activity set, called “Uncle Davies’s Brand Activity Set” The kit will include, five hand puppets, comics by each of the 5 puppet characters, pends and instruction sheet. The intention for the project is to inspire interaction with the comic and puppets.
What is it like to go to a job that you feel has a purpose and a value verses a job that you don’t feel contains any value? propose to spend three days, 8 am – 6 pm, tying the weavers knot, while exploring the value of my labor.
On site – tying 2000- 3000 knots a day
Final accumulation of weavers knots.
I propose to continue with the giant warp work I started last week. I will continue exploring the warp as object, and portrait of the landscape. I will spend the next three days, generating three warps in different areas of the city.
