This is Very Much not my work.... but ring any bells???
It is by Junco Sato Pollack

Go here to see read about the artist.
ORIGAMI #2
1998
Abstract composition in hand scroll w/ Plexi rod
25" x 50" x 8"
Sublimation, embroidery on polyester organza 

Remember discussing Origami and use of disperse dye at the ACAD Residency last summer?
Omg, and note the design, squares in those powerful colours, suspended from a perspex rod using? fishing line.... hmmmmm....
I truly get what you are on about dear friends who have been discussing the complexities of working where one is constantly seeing others' work.  Where is the line between yours and mine?



Kreative Momentum Runs its 13th Workshop - not unlucky for anyone we hope.
The latest Kreative Momentum Research and Development Day was held last Friday where we investigated the use of Fosshape for 3D work under the guidance of Angela Dale.
For a taste of what we got up to go to Arlee's blog
And here is one stolen image:- ( You OK with this Arlee?)


This R&D Day  was just Soooooo oversubscribed and will run again... as a 2-day event. 
The following was e-mailed to me by a participant after the event:-
"Thanks so much for the day. It was very enjoyable, a good start on 'R&D' (perfect descriptor as there is no pressure just exploration), and a nice introduction to each other. You and Angela made us all feel comfortable and went to great lengths, esp. all the samples! Please do know that I am very grateful for the opportunity for get togethers like this in a community of like minded learners."

If you feel you want this sort of thing for your professional development, then be sure to get in touch and get your name on the list for future workshops and R&D days.

Although a lot of people like working with WONDERFLEX...I think you can do so much more with FOSSHAPE. Sending Arlee a copy my FOSSHAPE video DVD.
Happy Fosshapeing.......
