Rebecca Horn

I've been thinking about some of Rebecca Horn's work.


   Mechanischer Körperfächer, Mechanical Body Fan, 1973-74

In her early works the body is frequently fitted with prosthetic extensions that allow the wearer to feel at a distance impossible for the natural body.  In her piece Finger Gloves, Horn describes the sensation of touching things at a distance as "sense-data." Again an artwork that delves into a material engagement of telematic sensation, a network of a few inches rather than the entire planet, but removed from direct contact all the same.

word play

This week I started getting back to one of those activities that I used to get lost in for hours and hours back in the early 90's ;) ...    Collaging!!!  This time I collaged without glue (perhaps then it's no longer a collage...hmmm).  Anyway, it was nice without the glue.  It was very fluid and allowed for movement and more than one possibility to explore text, sound, and form in different ways.   next step:  learning how to animate one of these "visual collages" and add illustrations.
