Nov/Dec 2010 – Wrappers/packaging…all sorts
This page and a similarly titled Submissions sub-page will show the experiments, thoughts, and final submissions using all types of wrappers and packaging. If you are type-A and prepare for these bimonthly announcements, then you saw a few months ago that this category was coming up and you saved candy wrappers from Halloween. If you are like most of the rest of us, you are thinking that maybe, this year, wrappers and wrapping paper and boxes, etc., from all of the Thanksgiving, Hannukah, and Xmas consumption madness can be put to good use. Either way, have fun. This category is fairly wide open. Mostly it is an excuse to nudge people toward acknowledging the sheer magnitude of this season’s trash and trying to get them to do something with it.
Please submit projects by December 31. We will post submissions as they arrive starting the first week of January.
Oh the many colors and textures of candy wrapper foil! How lovely all those plastic form-fitted covers are! What amazing styrofoam! How about those crazy patterns on the wrapping paper! Why do they put weird-shaped bits of cardboard into socks and shoes? Mind-boggling, really.
VERBS: For this category, almost any verb applies.
You may add comments here about the material (frustrations, triumphs, specific resources, etc.) all month long as you experiment, or you may wait until the end of the month. Text-only comments about working with newspaper can be added at the very bottom of THIS PAGE. If you have commented on this blog before, your comment will be posted immediately. If you are new to the blog, your comment will go through the Administrator for approval.
If you wish to submit a final project or summarizing comment (especially if you want to include images or links), we suggest that you do it in the form of a post on the sub-page, since those posts (unlike the more simply formatted comments on this page) can contain links and/or images. If you wish to add a post, please contact the Administrator through the contact form immediately below and we will tell you what to do to get your post published.
