My lovely wife asked me why I was doing this? I saw that question as why spend a considerable amount of time adding this moveable feature? Besides, losing time, solving the many problems adding motion causes and not knowing for what purpose, I had no answers. The ability to move the music around the artwork adds nothing to its meaning. That we both could agree with. My response was ” ’cause I can?” Not an answer I could defend. She did not ask me to. Now I can.
If I may borrow a title given too many of Kandinsky’s artworks, “improvisation”, that is what I should add to the title of this artwork. For me, improvisation means experimental. This is what this artwork is all about, beyond the music it represents. I am in the mood for change. I have grown tired of creating more 2019 art and want a fresh look for 2020. Although, for many, I am wondering if this will be the year they wish to forget and end. For me, not so much. Time is what I need a lot of, for this artwork needs explanation. The time I have left in 2020 will not be used to search out group venues and to create works that match some made-up theme. For this year, none of that. I have lost my motivation to show. For the rest of 2020 I am tired of the same-oh-same-oh and want another way to represent music. This artwork, for all of it still stuck in 2019 aspects, is going somewhere else. Hi, ho silver! The masked artist is making a move.
