This is a fantastic way to start a new year, with a long term and mystery art project. You can read about The Erosion Bundle Project at http://www.erosionbundles.com/. As the web site states: "MAKE A BUNDLE - LET NATURE HAVE IT'S WAY - SHARE IT Continuing the Disintegration Collaboration Idea created by Seth @ The Altered Page."
You may remember my Disintegration project last year. I really enjoyed watching it "disintegrate" but unfortunately it totally blew away in a New Mexico wind storm. Here you will see the items I have selected to put in my Erosion Bundle. Items include fabric scraps, papers, rusty nails and other metal pieces, some burlap and some polyester webbed material and a 1966 Vogue magazine cover. As a bonus for me, I have an oak cabinet door I want to age for another project I have in mind. So, I have attached my bundle to the door with twine, hoping it will age as the project goes on.The bundle is hanging from a hook in the pergola outside the kitchen door. This way I can watch it through the winter to see nature's progress. I used a piece of painted fabric on the front stating Bundle Erosion Project 1-1-2010. If you would be interested in participating in the project, get yourself on over to the link I provided and read about the project. Next Spring, I think in April, we will all take our bundles inside to see the results. At that time, we will be encouraged to create a piece of artwork using our altered items. Give it a try! Have some fun with me!
