aza and i have been hard at work on our balcony art project
and i want to invite all of you who read this blog to particiate in this lil piece of community art. by sending me pics and photos. and words. and whatever you want to digitally. and i will print them out and incorporate them into this balconey art.
send it to me at primitivedragonfly at yahoo dot com or leave a link in the comment section…
as to the type of art i am looking for. i am pretty open about it. take a walk through your neighborhood and take pictures or sketches. a poem. questions. a story that you want to share. photos of you or your family friends community. art. posters. your ordinary heroes/heroines. a piece of art/painting/writing created by someone else that you want to bring forth. the possibilities are endless.
i am really excited that this piece will:
1. contribute to the visual community of the neighborhood
2. mean that aza gets to paint
3. will act as a bridge between my online communities and my offline communities
4. will bring forth a more complex picture of middle east africa for those who do not live here and a more complex picture of europe and the americas for those who do not live there. and show the interconnections between these multiple sites of expression and communication
5. find another way to break through the censorship, imprisonment, and torture of bloggers in egypt
