An assemblage is a sculpture made from a combination of materials including found objects or non-traditional art materials. Create a sculptural portrait of your stuck-at-home self using any meaningful objects you have in your home.
- First take a quiet moment to reflect on how you would like to present your stuck-at-home self: How have you changed? What are the qualities that seem to be more present than usual?
- Then, look around for objects that speak to those qualities, or that have taken on new importance in your new reality and ‘sculpt’ or arrange them together.
- If you want, use an old shoebox to use as a ‘frame’ or container for your assemblage.
- Now take a picture of it and share it below. Do you see yourself in it?
- Add a caption to describe what it is you see.
'Shelter in Peace' : isolation as an opportunity to cocoon, reflect and nurture mind, body and spirit with love and patience. Anticipating and embracing metamorphosis through discovery and clarity - both personal and global - in the wake of the pandemic.
Good books, journal writing, and listening to music have been a godsend during this time. I'm glad that these things have been here to help me through the COVID moment.
I've been slowly building this solar power "assemblage" at home. Everyday I look forward to the arrival of another part of in the mail. Its been great to learn another skill and create a different focal point in my stuck at home life. When I look at it it makes me hopeful for the day that I can return to the outdoors to use it.
heh heh. my assemblage was right there because I am actually working on making an assemblage out of old buttons. This quick pick shows a good example of my way in the world. Only through disorder can order arrive. I have a lot of disorder to work with on a daily basis, it doesn't bother me as much as it bothers other people but when I reach a point of order (because I am capable of creating it) it is a form of ecstasy! I collect buttons and simply sorting them is delightful. The first week of the stay at home order I started figuring out which buttons to keep, sell, or make stuff out of. I made this portrait of Covid 19 out of buttons. Its a bad picture, but you get the idea.
