YOUR DOCUMENTS PLEASE


I am pleased to participate in the traveling exhibit YOUR DOCUMENTS PLEASE opening at The Museum of Arts & Crafts in Itami, Japan April 4. Other venues are in Budapest, Hungary and Bratislava, Slovakia . International artists have created "Documents of Identification for themselves using the unbridled power of their art to create a vital document for purposes (known and unknown) of identification, emigration, immigration and imagination."

MEL.....

Beautifully done! Airy and earthy.

Do you have any good links or reads on
"primal consciousness"???
I noticed that its been part of your journey in some of the writings on your site. Would like to delve into it a bit.

thanks....Karen

For Karen: Don't have any good stuff on "primal consciousness". Look up Chris Drury and Maya Lin tho' -their work has a primal feeling. I guess my intuitiveness in my forest work may come from my ancestorial lineage. I am such a gatherer. MEL
