Hand tiles, phrase tiles, memory tiles.

January 11th, 2009

I have been working SO INTENSELY on this project… An elaborate grant proposal that I almost got. I was one of three finalists in the state, but not the final one. Darn!

What I pitched was an installation of tile, each one created from casts of the hands of townspeople.
The resulting tiles would then have been incorporated into a monument. The tiles that have words on them have phrases direct from the minds of the townspeople. Memories and images that evoke the values of the town. Perhaps I'll mount these on the side of our gallery. That would be kind of cool.

The monument I designed had a sort of Stonehenge look to it. It would have created a gathering place for sharing and contemplation.

    Thanks Priscilla! I'm pretty pleased with the concept. It would have been beautiful. Who knows- it may emerge somewhere.
