Last Friday we had our critique for the Sticks Project based on the concept of Unity. Learning about the very different approaches to the assignment reminds me that we all have such a broad range of ideas with the same information given. The energy and direction of the pieces, or the constraints put on the sticks with thread and twine to show us some meaning was so interesting. Some were personal, some were well crafted, but all were thought out and explained. My favorite inspirational piece was Morgan’s Fire with the woven fire of orange yarn. The mass of fire seemed like a hot ember with the other sticks waiting to be consumed. Two others I thought showed a nice process were photographed. The one I found to be overwhelming was Clint’s Family Tree. I enjoyed the spoken geometry of the relationships of each member, but visually I was left feeling like there needed a bit more of a subtle approach. Hey, I have a crazy family too…but there is still connection.
