#DDA79 | I’ll Show You Mine If You Show Me Yours : Home, What’s Underneath?

Good Morning NetNarr!

In today’s Digital Daily Assignment #79, you asked participants to improvise from an original tag phrase “I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours”. Then, we are to choose a new word to add to this phrase/ paraphrase and share our remixing” with a creative representation revealed with the corresponding word.

Immediately I thought of some friends over at StyleLikeU & their project What’s Underneath – their theme of ‘self-acceptance’Combining, the last word “Home” with the original phrase “I’ll show you mine if you show me yours” and additionally – “What’s Underneath?”. With the Spring in the air (mostly), I was inspired by SLU’s theme of self acceptance.

So here, in this screenshot is a look into my ‘home’ studio. It’s a look into ‘what’s underneath’ my morning – straight from bed, hair braided back, bra-lette and even, what’s underneath some of my artistic process. Behind me are some structure bases in the making for the largest structure I’ve made to date. They will be taking form to hair sculptures like this one I’ve made below …

#DDA75 | A (Short) Novel in One Photo

Hey Netnarr!

Earlier this week for Digital Daily Assignment #75, you asked for participants to spend time with this moving photo by Aleppo – to then create a short story that includes what this man is listening to on his record player. We are to use words to give a sense of the sounds of his environment.

Here is my short novel (in prose).

A Man Listens to Reconstruct

these are still my walls. my broken walls. am i broken?

i carry on …surrounded with these effects that no longer trouble me –
‘in a silent way’ plays for miles and after a long trip then –

I hope onto coltrane’s train,
with an extra tigga bounce that springs forth hope & tranquility –

and there – a love supreme.
i glide through the symphony and am lifted by it.
levitating now, I am able to see in true perspective.
i can move thru, around and even, inside these walls –
while reinforcing my physical self with the sonic notes I collect with each touch –
reconstructing this former self I am now hovering.

new walls built albeit sonic waves as bricks –
I study this new building in my making.

Hope you enjoyed this impromptu. Feel free to enjoy below – the sonic healings of Miles Davis & John Coltrane.

Til’ soon,

#DDA71 | My Alchemist Signature [JGW]

Hey Netnarr!

In today’s Digital Daily Assignment, you asked for a symbol that represents ourselves as Alchemist (LOVE IT!). Below is a draft sketch of a signature I am working out for a developing “art-catalogue-story” project, called JoGoesWest.  Even further, I’ve attached a sneak into some very special designs cooking up for a launch from Le-PetitLab!

 

Jo is a Millennial warrior displaced from the tantalizing East; A pioneering traveler of roads to the Wild Wild West – Jo is empowered by alchemic concoctions of lo-fi means, in order to survive a 7-month roadtrip alone.   Follow JoGoesWest – More coming soon!
