library sticks

I was walking past the National Library recently when I saw a pile of sticks – I think maybe the parks workers had been preparing to mow the grass – but hadn’t gotten beyond collecting the sticks.  It was Sunday, it was sunny, I was on my way somewhere but it wasn’t urgent, so I thought I’d better do something with that pile of sticks.   A woven  tent-like structure is what emerged.

    Very cool! and inspirational. I would have loved to be a casual observer as people walked by and looked at your installation.

    Nice piece…I like that it was somewhat impromptu. Did anybody watch you or want to participate?

    It is ussually impromptu when I do this type of work, and lately I haven’t been doing so much because I’ve been not walking enough and therefore not stumbling accross the materials at the right time. Nobody really watched – despite being right next to the library it was kind of round the back and not really much of a throughfare – there were a few people who watched as they passed by – but at a safe distance.
