be the post it.


my first project for elements is to "take an object which has specific visual information and through the use of my own imagination change the way it is seen." i chose post-its. practical, yet fun. accepting of my inner note taker and to do list maker. very graphic. and i also have a thing for using everyday office supplies in art. so it works all around.

this is a three week project... starting with 10 pieces, continuing with five more, and ending with a final version. and there are no rules. just play.


and i have been. i bought a huge roll of yellow tracing paper. (could it be the new acetate? so many possibilities.) i covered an entire corner of the dorm from floor to ceiling with post-its. i found a post-it colored dress suit from the thrift store (very out of my element) that i will never wear in public, but was cheap enough (half off labor day sale) to buy just for a post-it photo shoot. and i'm staring right now at a huge white square canvas just begging for a splash of post-it yellow paint...
