Then of course it became all about the photographs and my new artistic endeavor. Anyone who knows me well knows that I appreciate some quality macro photography and documentation. Well, something happened over a year ago where I said "fuck it, I'm in a hurry." And I stopped properly documenting, which is not to say that I did not document... I just documented mediocrely.
Like... very poorly. For my standards. Which weren't very high to begin with considering the troubles I've had with white balance... but whatever!
With nothing further, I submit to you my poorly documented work. Of a particularly important part of my creative life...
Mobile work from December 2015 to March 2017
Made a rainbow one for my dad, who complains 'the gays stole the rainbow'. A straight man can like the rainbow! Yes dad, it's fine.
I really love this one, he has it in his big white painting studio, right where the light hits it.
Thennnnn I made this one for my friend Nikos' wedding, which was in early January at the beach. He and his wife also don't live in Panama, so I made round beads to make sure they would travel well. Honestly the wire is what preoccupies me the most with these.
The wire I'm using is brass, which is easily malleable, but also retains it's shape pretty well for hanging. The heaviest mobile I've kept in contact with is my mom's, and it hasn't warped much. What does worry me is it getting bent accidentally and then the person not getting it back to a nice smooth shape. I expect the color of the metal to tarnish, which I actually prefer over the golden.
Still in January 2016! My best friend's birthday. I asked her what color she would like for her apartment and she said turquoise. Again, used plenty of murrine, because I love it. Continued with the round shape for travelling, since it needed to go to New York.
But then whose is this?
Notice how the loops in these sections are increasing by size, how fun!
This one was for Karina, with blown glass.
