All for Art

Studio Friday: Desert Island


This week challenge is really challenging. We have to imagine to live in a desert island where we are allowed to bring only three items from our studio.

If I could, my three items would be: laptop computer so I can blog and get connected with loved ones, digital camera so I can share my visual experience, and PDA which I don’t really need if I have the computer. But of course I cannot take all those three. No WiFi in desert island so.. drop the idea!

I turn to traditional equipments to ‘art survive’ in desert island. First, I need the lantern to help me busy after dark. Then scissors and/or knife to make artwork with whatever I find in the island. It could be leaves, wood, or anything. My art could be a collage on leaves or 3-D artwork like installation. After stunning surroundings: a white beach, magnificent trees, waterfalls, no poisonous insect on it (as promised by Tine); creating artwork is all we would do :-)

What a fun entry!! I am much like you in that I had thought ahead to creating with the natural resources ON the island rather than to bring them along! I think I need to camp next to you though, as I have forgotten my scissors!!!
Have a great weekend!
