MTA Arts for Transit Take 2

Tonight, Tomorrow

 

HappY Monday Ha ha

That is a joke.   Ohhhh another week of work, frolicking and this morning the alarm clock of thunderstorms.   Boom, Boom, Boom.

Get up Steph!!!  It’s yoga time!!

 

I was called with exciting news on Friday Afternoon from the MTA!!

MTA Call for Artist

I was selected as a finalist for the public arts for tranist for the:

 East 180th Street Station-
White Plains Road Line Elevated Subway Station on the 5-Line in NYC.

I encourage all artist to keep applying to these submissions for public art and other opportunities.  Because I was applying for YEARS to this program and nothing and then this year I was now selected twice as a finalist.   Thank God.  Some artists have asked me how I knew about this opportunity.  So I have included a link above to:

The MTA Arts for Transit Call for artist website

I believe that I enrich myself by sharing opportunities with other artists.  I believe whatever God has for you no one can take away from you.   So I am not afraid to share this important information with you!!!   It makes my so happy!!  YaY!!  :O)

I am sharing my final submissions from my first proposal I submitted earlier this year for an earlier MTA Arts for Tranist Public Arts Project.  

 The Parkchester Project on the 6 -Line.

The work above originally entitled:  Today, Tonight renamed “Tonight, Tomorrow”,

And below the work originally entitled: Tomorrow renamed “City Life”

I learned allot from the progress the first time and I believe it actually elevated my work to level that in my case could only be realized thru the pressure of the process.

Please contact if you have questions!!!

Buried Secrets

 

 

 

YaY!!!  

One day to the weekend you beautiful people!!!

Thursday, Thursday!!!  

Well, it’s a good thing I decided not to go to The Bronx Zoo yesterday, because there was an incident there where …

Dozens Stuck in Midair at the Bronx Zoo
More than three dozen cable car passengers were stranded for hours Wednesday night at the Bronx Zoo after an emergency mechanism caused the ride to shut down.
Reports said that a powerful thunder strom caused the malfunction.   I love taking that cable car across the park.  It gives a beautiful airal view of the zoo.  They where stranded for like 5 hours.  The free admission probably had allot of people visiting the zoo yesterday.   Everyone is OK God!  :O)
Bill Viola the artist not the baseball player…
The Internationally-Renowned Video Artist Bill Viola.

Bill Viola: Buried Secrets

 

In this work 3 women are greeting each other.  The scene is recorded from a fixed camera position, the actions of the figures are seen in extreme slow motion and are presented in a vertical aspect ratio. The entire original event of forty-five seconds unfolds as an elaborate choreography over the course of ten minutes. ……

I saw this work in 1997 at the Whitney Retrospective of his work.  I went to see it like 3 times and I drug my father to see it, because I kept talking to him about it.  He love it too and he is a very practical man :O)

What did we love about it??  The main reason why this is my favorite piece of his, is that it tickles the mind with it’s obvious but not overt reference to Mary the Mother of Jesus and her greeting women in the square.   This is purely my interpretation and the artist gives us no verbal or written guidance that supports this interpretation.   

But it goes to my theory that you can experience nothing in it’s pure form, all your experiences and the interactions are all colored if not guided by your past experiences and when you have strong reaction and connections to anything it is because of these factors.

The beauty and truth I found in Bill’s work is that it focuses you on each breath we take in this life and how much we actually miss in our daily interactions.  The greeting seconds streched into 10 minutes.    With no sound.  But I was paralized unable to move absoultely captivated by the silent dialog and information that became so illuminated in that interaction between those three women.

So much so that it is still huants me over a decade after seeing it and it has changed me in that it showed me a truth that I didn’t know before that truely even moment counts and means something.
