Why I love Atlanta:once,walking into a Goodwill, someone started talking to me in Spanish like I'm a native speaker, once, reading in Starbucks someone asked me what part of the Mediterranean I was from, once, sitting in Starbucks (again), someone asked me where in the Middle East was I from, weekly students ask if I am from Texas, yesterday, walking w a friend a man commented, "oh its great to see to Jewish girls walking on a sunny day"...mind you...she is Columbian.
I use to think I had to come up with something very original all on my own, but I've learned that this is a dry approach. I have found that mixing and matching my older works of art with newer works of art produces creations that I could have made otherwise. In this approach negotiations take place. Do I keep this image or discard it, do I enhance this portion of this piece or push it back. This hybrid art is a new creation in and of itself. My negotiations with it are vital. It is in the negotiations that I discover my relationship and understanding of this new work. Would we call this a fine art mashable?
