The State of the Art


The Pulse is coming. And it is beating loud and clear. So far nearly 150 artists have signed on to participate in the next edition of The Pulse, a survey in words and pictures of "the state of the art" of the online artist community. And it is not too late for you to join. If you are interested in being part of this project, email me and I will forward all of the information you need. Please contact me soon, as sign up for this project will end on November 30.

If you have already left a comment on my "Calling all Artists" post asking to join and you have not yet heard back from me, it means that I do not have your email. Please email me directly so I can include you.

This 4th edition of The Pulse will be presented as a series of online and print projects. And the first will begin on Sunday November 22.


Secret Sunday will be a series of weekly posts that offer a window into the secrets of the participating artists. They could be techniques, products, places to pick up found objects, little-known websites, hidden shops, out-of-print books, or anything else. And even if you are not participating in this project, get ready to share your secret too. At least one Secret Sunday post will be dedicated to readers leaving comments listing their own secrets!

I don't know if I excused myself from this one or not when you first announced it, but I sold four pieces last night, so I'm feeling like I need to take a breath and do something for me. Would you please let me know the particulars via email. Please.

Aha!
I think I must send my stuff now. I only have problem with the photos. I think I have to explain what my art is and what I am doing, but you said, no that might be too much. Don't know how to handle this, that's the reason why I haven't sent anything yet.
We will see.
Enjoy your (secret) sunday!

I'm so excited about Secret Sunday, and now I know I won't have to wait too much longer for it. I'm still in anticipation mode, but at least I'm feeling lots closer.

Thanks so much for the link to Pam Carriker's new blog. It will be fun watching how this book develops.

Hi. My pc is not displaying all of your blog so perhaps it is hiding your email. Anyway, you should receive it via this comment. Please can you send me details of how to join! Thanks

Debrina said...

Seth - this sounds like a lot of work on your behalf. I'll most probably end up buying the zine me thinks.
Oh now, I thought you might be interested in this guy: http://billevertson.blogspot.com/
If you haven't heard of him, he's currently making "hand" stamps. That is, a stamp with a hand for a handle! I immediately thought of you with your amazing 2nd hand book. Found this through JafaBrits blog.

Amazing, amazing, Seth! I have been a little out of contact with a lot of stuff in Blogland these days and missed the launch of your Pulse project. Times are a little to busy for me to jump in but I will definitely be around to comment and be inspired by all the talent, creativity and imagination of this wonderful art community !
Bravo for your dedication to getting us all sharing the arty love !
