I’m having a glorious time at Art Outside so far. Lots of interesting stories to write about — I’m particularly interested in the 999 Eyes Freak Show, which has already taught me a lot about my own preconceived notions about ableism and beauty. That video will take some more work.
One of the interactive art installations at Art Outside this year is Sarah Stollak’s Web Of Wishes. This work is based on yarn and paper and uses the trees on site to create a web of interconnection between participants and the world at large.
Sarah says her inspirations for this work include Christo & Jeanne-Claude’s landscape artwork and the work of Yoko Ono. It also recalls wishing trees which appeared at some Occupy encampments including Occupy Los Angeles.
