Final Phase: Disentegration Collaboration


This past winter Seth Apter started the
Disintegration Collaboration (DisCo)
We put our bundles out in the elements until May, then revealed
what they looked like after 3 months. Now the final phase-creating a piece of art with pieces or all, of our bundle. I took some of the papers and glued them to a piece of plywood, then added part of the bundled papers that survived the wind, rain, sun and ants. Added some paint for a bit of color and a few rusty washers-
If you go to his blog, you will find a list of links to other artists that did all 3 phases-you can see the final products of the elements!

It's been awhile since I've been to your blog. Shame on me, since I own one of your gorgeous assemblages. This piece is amazing. You did an awesome job, keeping true to the DisCo concept, yet making such a gorgeous finished product.

Hi Donna!
I am really liking your DisCo dimensional piece of art!
The colors are so earthy, and the papers are wonderful. I think I will put some more papers back outside after looking at your post =)
It is really nice to meet a fellow Texan. Lets keep in touch. I will add you to my blogroll =)

Thanks for coming on by and taking a look at my DisCo project! Yours is fabulous! I love the colour and the idea behind it. As one person said on my comments page - it's amazing what you can do with compost! Lol!
