|Thirty Works 2021 - Third 10
Part 3 of my submissions for an exercise that calls on me to produce a new work of art for each day of April 2021
Day 21: What's your responsibility as a maker?
(Different context for some existing masks made for my automata projects)
Day 22: You're on a TV show as "an artist".
Make a work that sums you up for commercial reasons.
Day 23: What does failure look like to you?
Title: Failure to Act
Day 24: Use wikiHow to learn a new skill and make a work with it
Title: It's not the thought that counts
(wikiHow is boring so I tried to go a bit further with creating an animated drawing using Photoshop)
Day 25: What is your work's arch-nemesis?
Title: Pretty. Or Pretty What?
Day 26: Write a review of one of your previous works
Title: Wave - Reviewed and Improved
(This started out a caterpillar automaton that was morphed into a wave simulator in last year's 30/30.
Since then I've been thinking of giving it an op-art painting job.
The prompt encouraged me to go ahead)
Day 27: Make a work to give to someone else, and then give it to them.
Title: Seagull Automaton
Day 28: What have you learnt about yourself and your practice?
What from this four weeks do you want to carry on?
Make a commitment.
Day 30: Try making that work you've been wanting to make over the past month and never got around to making.
Title: Wiggly fish automaton made from recycled marine plastic
(I was disappointed that the fish I made on Day 8 wasn't self-supporting.
I solved this by mounting it on a piano wire crankshaft inside a recycled plastic box.)
