My own art voyage. . .
Earlier this afternoon, I was reading about environmental artist quarters. These quarters are similar to any type of artist or musician's loft, but all are completely efficient in all aspects of the building. The go by the the Green Building guidelines, and create spaces for artists to work including wet and dry studios, kiln space, dance studios, practice spaces, and a small library area. I believe that being emersed in an area like this would be quite beneficial to any artist, and everyone in the building would have to be a keen advocate for environmental sustainability. I.E., strongly agree with minimal driving, wasting water, and food. Must maintain recycling and support organic businesses. Perhaps I have began to imagine a little.
I am a fledgling artist, and I am very opinionated about recycling. These opinions have turned me into a saver, and I have accumulated lots of junk, because I believe that everything can be re-used. Thus far, I have taken to a few small projects within the couple of months and recycling christmas wrapping paper, cardboard, and other simple media. I have combined this with some of the junk that i have found that cannot in any form be recycled. Some can be re-used, yes. I have taken these small pieces to create environmental situations, things, and places. I hope that my message runs a bit more clear in my photos.
I would love to keep expanding my ideas on recycling, re-using, and making more of an effort to support our environment as well as be active with my artwork.
