Revisting the Previous Works -- White Bird Parabola (2012)

     Continued from the last post --  I've been revisiting my previous works to prepare for a Powerpoint presentation for the Tulsa Community College guest artist talk.

    This work is called "White Bird Parabola." I made it in 2012 and it was exhibited in a WSU Sculpture Guild Show at Diver Studio, Wichita, KS.  Each feather ball was suspended by thread from the top.

Revisiting the Previous Works -- Snow Ball Tower (2013)

     To prepare a Powerpoint presentation for the artist talk at Tulsa Community College Center 4 Creativity, I'm re-visiting my old photos and videos of my works.  I am going to share them here, too.

Snow Ball Tower (2013)

     In the winter 2013, we had a lot of snow in Wichita.  My kids and I started making a snowman, but instead, we ended up with this snow ball tower.


     That night, the tower touched the moon...!



     Next morning, it fell down unfortunately, but I made more towers after that.  



     Then we had another round of snow...


     Nest morning, it looked like this.


     The fresh snow covered all the footprints of mine.  


     Some animals' footsteps in the fresh snow proved the presence of early risers.  


     I found that stacking multiple snow balls in cold weather was just a tedious and tiresome job.  However, during the process, I encountered things from nature that were alive and interacting with the towers, which made me discover the beauty of this process-oriented ephemeral land art.

Video Clip of Origami Cranes in Blue on YouTube

     I have uploaded a short video clip of "Origami Cranes in Blue" to my YouTube channel.  This work was installed for a show at NU Steckline Gallery in 2018.  It took some time for me to upload it and publish it.  I hope this video will refresh your memory if you were there.
