Like the title says, the idea is that you’d hang this series of drawings in various rooms in your home.
Makes a great gift.
STATEMENT ABOUT THE WORK
Whenever asked, “How long did it take you to make this?” I always respond, “My whole life up to that moment.” And it’s true.
I never liked the idea that someone could just buy my work. I develop ideas forever, then struggle with finding a way to execute them that makes sense, often traversing through several iterations. And then someone writes a check and that’s the end. What?
I work too hard on this stuff. Simply paying for it and hanging it on a wall is too easy. I don’t want anything I do becoming another inanimate object that decorates someone’s home. I want more. I want ramifications!
So I came up with this. This feels more like a real transaction. Yes, you get to own something I made, but you also accept some responsibility. Put this on your wall and you have to be more honest as a result. It’s more than just an image, it becomes a point of interaction with everyone who comes into your home. It’s simple ink on paper, but wherever it hangs, there’re social implications.
It’s not for everyone.
Steve, if you are out there, I want you to know, I dont say this often, but I think I am in love with your online persona. Please take this is seriously as you can, because it could mean anything. -Carissa.
