i was making my sister a festival formal one summer for Electric Forest & was just having such an incredible time. despite my original disappointment(?)..that she strayed from her usual lion..i found so much opportunity for movement, play, and growth beneath the tentacles of scrap material as i tied. i kept thinking of how each piece, while by itself was nothing special, was just so wonderful with the rest.
i suppose i fell in love with the process of coming to life as i found myself playing like a child and laughing out loud at the way the jellyfish began to bounce about. the perspective switch from within and without the world beneath the tentacles became more alive with each motion as the project evolved.
the project consumed me, as most do,
and the creature began to unravel more discoveries about the magic of movement
and, of course, play.
i knew it wasn't enough to share only the finished product. to experience creation, growth, and completion is to experience life.
i had to share the journey.
please join the jellyfish movement and add a tentacle to my creation amongst the others added by those before you. please be brave, be playful, and be kind in your wanders and take a moment to stop and smile at all of the beautiful lives that surround you.
i hope it brings so many smiles~
