My Tiny Studio ~ “Light”
Okay, so this is now becoming addictive!. Having just complained about my MUSE visiting me at odd early morning hours, I woke up yesterday after a solid nights sleep, and then suddenly the panic started to set in. I needed to create Art, but what? Did my MUSE get the message and will “she” come back? ~ (yes somehow I think I have a female MUSE ~ is that even possible?).
I decided to take a trip to the local China Mall and do some window shopping. You see, one can find anything at the China Mall, from headache tablets, to small Barbie outfits, and yes fish net stockings, to spark plug spanners, even the latest fad, namely those overpriced Fidget Spinners for kids who have forgotten how to entertain themselves. And all of these items packed tightly next to each other on the same shelf no larger than two feet wide. I knew that if I walked around long enough, something was bound to catch my attention. And then it happened! ~ Tucked away in an obscure corner of the tiny overstocked shop, a packet of twelve imitation light bulbs called out to me. As I bent down to secure my treasure, a young lass suggested that this was exactly what she was looking for, and gave me a huge smile in anticipation of me handing over the base concept for my next Tiny Studio project. I paused, and then asked her what she intended using them for, to which she responded, and I quote, “Oh, it’s for a party, and I want to use them for “shot glasses””. I suggested that she was far too young to drink, and I marched to the pay point with goods in hand and made a quick getaway “Possession is nine points of the law”.
Passers by stared at me as I stood outside the shop frozen with a dozen imitation light bulbs in hand, like a statue, pondering just how exactly I was going to bring this next project to life. And then it all came together. More shopping required. I needed puzzle pieces, not small ones, but bigger wooden ones. CHECK! ~ I needed some Christmas Lights. CHECK! ~ Spray paint. CHECK! ~ Black cardboard, CHECK! And oh yes, another 500x500x500mm cardboard box to house all the bits and pieces for my new project. And so the non-stop eighteen hour process began.
