This past month has been the month of self-assignments! Sheree Rensell (@wizzlewolf), a Tampa-area artist and teacher, started a group on Twitter to self-produce a gallery exhibit. The group, #twitterartshow, has about 40 members, and collectively decided to create some art around the connected artist theme.
While I was working on the vegetableaus, one of the pieces seemed especially appropriate for the twitter:140. I was stringing beans on a slender dark thread, and when I photographed them, they suddenly seemed to form groups spontaneously. Dancing in the light, the beans were all connected by the slender thread (twitter) and shared a common bond of beaniness. Just like Twitter.
Ok, so maybe it’s a bit goofy. My take on the twitter art show was to have some fun with the idea, and still illustrate the multiple conversations and threaded ideas that permeate the twitterverse.
