The Liminal Project

I had completely forgotten to show my completed section of this collaborative project.  I posted about it when I had laid it all out, but not the finished piece.

Here it is and it has been sent to the coordinator to be assembled.  I am not sure when it is to be shown, there are a lot of other pieces and it has been ongoing for quite a while now as it is.  You can read about it more here.

I have been very busy, so my studio time has been limited.  I am working on some black goddess talismans and not sure whether they will work out or not, I have a large landscape boundaries piece still ongoing which needs to be resolved, but that needs to wait until I can dedicate a good block of time to it.

I finished some decorations that I had started in December by adding beads and other danglies, they were intended for a Christmas tree, but are now adorning my walls and windows.

Jennifer, the whole text is: "Liminal: Interstitial, vestibular and peripheral. Far from the centre, close to the border. A zone both between and without larger structures. Liminal spaces and moments are those into which large stable structures leak animated data about themselves and the world. Things happen in liminal zones. A city carries within it the contradiction of liminal zones located in its centre, because inner cities are the city's farthest borderlands. Liminal fringes are often the most conducive environments for the culture of memes. This is because exiled images, ideas and meanings from several stable structures mingle in the corridors between them. Here, bereft of identities and other certainties, they are free to be promiscuous and reproduce. They infect each other with recombinant strands of thought and image. At the same time, the perspective of liminality brings intimacy to bear on an exclusion. Being liminal is to be close to, and yet stand outside the site of the border of any stable system of signs, where meaning is frayed from being nibbled at on the edges. Nothing can know the centre better than the sideways glance of peripheral vision. Liminality may be acquired from prolonged exposure to the still air of airport departure lounges, thick and over-boiled tea at the Inter State Bus Terminus on the ring road in Delhi, or the sub-liminal flicker of a cursor in an e-mail message."

Which was all broken up into 30 different parts.
