The object was to write a task that could be completed using whatever materials were available without causing damage to property or persons, place it in the TASK box and retrieve a task for yourself to complete. After accomplishing the task you were to write a new task to add to the box and start a new one. This could go on ad finitum. The photo above was near the beginning of the evening while there were still pristine piles of materials- like going into ACMoore and being allowed to use whatever you found to make art on site!Things started getting a little crazier. Above you can see the pillars wrapped in saran wrap- someone actually was able to use it as a hammock! It eventually became a volleyball net with a blown-up plastic bag as ball.I turned around and suddenly there was a life-size unicorn behind me! I should have gotten a side view- the whole thing was quite anatomically accurate (don't think dirty, now).Next thing you know there's an iceberg island in the corner. Or maybe a boat...The best part was when my usually non-participating husband FINALLY added a task to the box ("Draw a Mermaid") which not one minute later was pulled out of the box by a 5-year-old boy who drew the image above. His mother tore the image off the roll of paper and kept the task paper to take home as a souvenir, creating some magic for my love.
Throughout the evening I created a pipe cleaner car, drew a hopscotch board, ruffled someone's hair, helped build a fairy house, created an invisible dog leash, had my feet traced, and had my legs hugged.
Thanks to Oliver Herring and the people of Fluxspace for creating an unforgettable experience!
