Today the Erosion Bundles came down! They've been tied to a fence in the lower part of our backyard since New Years Day.
Frankly, they didn't erode as much as I would have thought. Still, there is some fine potential for art here.
The "Art" bundle was inside of a hinged wooden box, and the colors on papers inside of it smooshed around nicely.
One of the biggest surprises of the eroded "Canvas" bundle came when I turned the base canvas over and saw how nicely the frame itself had aged. I can't wait to use this to house an assemblage piece.
The "Phoenix" bundle gave up a lot of good collage material — fabric and paper aged between the pages of a journal.
Although there will be lots to choose from in this bundle, my favorite was the subtle aging on a fragment of one of my favorite European papers.
The next step in this project is a collaborative project among all of the artists who let their materials erode through the winter months. I'm looking forward to getting to work on it.
