What to Do with 101 Blue Flowers?!
Well I’ve collected 101 Blue Hydrangeas today. Scientifically, botanically, they are all blue hydrangeas. Some have withered and died, so they used to be blue but are now brown and brittle. Some are still green and want to be blue. All are in various stages. I guess that’s how they come together. When in doubt choose life as the metaphor, lol.
How will they come together in one exhibitable piece, now there in lies the mystery! A nice mystery though. All I know is I have to get down to IKEA tonight to steal a lot of their wrapping paper… !
The plan at this stage is to somehow imprint the paper with the flowers. (actually the plan before that was to print it on fabric somehow so you can see how confused I am at the moment). I might need a steam iron. I’ve been taking hundreds of photos and will take more. I’m hoping to use another technique of image transfer that Elvis Pezlie told me about as well during last week’s Dressing People assignment. So the plan is to have the floral dye in 101 blobs, then transfer the detail on top of the blobs using the Pezlie Method. Then I want to find quotes from us, to place around each one. (Nothing too soppy, I’m not good with soppy)
Like all plans, we don’t know yet. I am still in the VOID between dream and reality…
Aren’t they pretty though, honestly…!!!
