from Series of Art Health Score Chance Haiku Collage
As I was creating a score book for the Day de Dada Art Nurse performances in Boston, I started thinking about visual art health care scores and creating them using the chance haiku technique I had employed to make collage in the past.
My process is to go through magazines and books and collect phrases that are 5 and 7 syllables long, then arranged them in the 5-7-5 format of haiku poetry. When I have an arrangement that I like I add an image to use as background. As often is the case I am amazed at the interesting ideas that occur with the connecting of the phrases.
Series of eye collages
inspired by the collage
"Eye Bouquet" (1930)
of German Dada artist
Mary Campbell's eye collages started with the mandala collages.
The theme is the Hindu Goddess Ankamma, a guardian protector goddess
thought to have 1000 eyes to keeps watch on her devotees where ever they go.
