As part of my current article on the DisCo project in the May/June issue of Cloth Paper Scissors, the magazine is sponsoring a readers challenge on their website. If you did not participate in the Disintegration Collaboration the first time around (or even if you did), now is your chance. Create your own art bundle, place it in nature, and repurpose the materials to create a new artwork.
CPS has created a dedicated webpage on their site so that you can upload photos of your bundle for all three steps of the project. You can go to their homepage and click on the "DisCo Project" link. Or click here to go directly to the DisCo page. While you are there, you can already see many of the bundles and repurposed art pieces created by the original participants in the project. In order to add your own pictures, you have to register to be a member of their web community.
The images in this post are all taken from the sample bundle that I created for the article. In the magazine, you can find step-by-step instructions to recreate this bundle. Or you can simply use the instructions as a loose guide and create your own bundle in any shape or form you like. You will also find a list of helpful "bundle tips" in the magazine.
I made two identical bundles (approximately 30 1/2" x 7 1/2") for CPS and am offering both to readers of my blog through a giveaway. To have a chance to win, please just leave a comment on this post by the end of Tuesday May 4th. I will randomly select and post the names of the two winners on Wednesday May 5th. Good luck!
