This day’s “make something” assignment was to create a disguise. I’ve already created a mask of words, and I’ve played with camouflage twice (and this is just 29 days into a year of making). Mulling my “words” theme, a passage of Shakespeare’s poetry came to mind:
What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet …
So let’s disguise a rose. Do you still recognize it? Does it still smell as sweet?
I must say Beth, I really like this. direct, and the difference in color and subject tone… very effective.
Reblogged this on The RunningFather Blog and commented:
Beth Nyland’s art projects are always simple and beautiful… provocative.
Why not check her work out? ~Jim
Thanks, Jim and Easter! This was a fun one. I wonder if there would be call for a series of unexpected greeting cards like this? “You stink, but here’s a flower for your birthday anyway.” Nah, maybe not.
