GOODBYE NORMA JEAN.......

February 9, 2009 I assembled a piece of Disintegration Art as part of a global project organized by Seth at www.thealteredpage.blogspot.com. I could see the piece from my studio windows and got used to having Marilyn there every day. Our direction was to place this piece outside in the weather and watch as Mother Nature assisted in the creation. On May 1, 2009 we were to retrieve the piece and photograph it.
File Note: the weather at about 7000 feet in New Mexico can be harsh and the wind unrelenting. As pieces became unattached and started blowing around the courtyard I gathered them up. Marilyn disappeared one day after a particularly strong wind lasting about 24 hours. I looked for her in vain. She is gone. And this is what is left.

HI Dee,
Yes moving and changing. That makes it wonderful in many different ways. Bart is so goofy!

I'm sorry you lost so much of your bundle. Maybe there are things out there in the high desert that can fill in. I'm also a New Mexican and I also enjoy those wonderful mornings.

HI Ginny and welcome to my blog! I just visited yours and your photographs are wonderful! You gave me an idea. On the 40 acres to the south of us is a wonderful old adobe house, almost totally gone back to the earth. I think I will get down there with my camera and do some shooting!

interesting to see how many of us had parts blown away that were either gathered and reattached or never to be seen again~

HI Donna and welcome to my blog! I checked on your DisCo piece and we did have similar challenges! There was so little of mine left, however, that there was NO place for an ant! That must have been a bummer!

The vanishing of Marilyn is almost a metaphor the whole process in disintegration...you may have to seek and find another image to possibly collaborate your renewal integration process. I am so hopeful that you find the answers that work with your heart's intent. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Interesting that Marilyn moved on. The bits that are left look enticing. I loved that you tied Marilyn outside - very creative!
