Notes for the installation - Binding...?


THE CONCEPTS ON BINDING

Notes and observations
Was a bit conflicted about the terminology and definitions of Binding and Fury  so ->

· Binding - an act of transformation - as the process of making one thing into something else – an alchemy - Binding to transform.

· The Fury Project - not trying to provide definitive answers but to open a pathway for exploration and interrogation through these art forms

· The “tree” - a live object of grounding something to lean on peaceful, visual beautiful, representing growth, movement, age and wisdom (the ring)


Ways to deliver the installation
· Binding vine-like limbs to initially cover jukebox. It could potentially give us a heads up on how long we have to actually make according to our desired design, to what kind of size the tree might grow to in that time and how pressed we might be for the fabric gathering. ->
extensions from the jukebox and supported structure around it.

· Format of poems, writings, sketching. Charcoal, pastels other art materials for binding?


"O how can it be that the ground itself does not sicken?
How can you be alive you growths of spring?
How can you furnish health you blood of herbs, roots, orchards, grain?
Are they not continually putting distemper'd corpses within you?
Is not every continent work'd over and over with sour dead?" 
- Walt Whitman

Seeding Red

"Recognising the anger trying not to see red and disappear
or end up with time lost
to the Bermuda triangle of troubled,
strangulated till I black out:
the  hurricane walks." Anger is a symptom for something being very wrong. It is your body telling you a perceived injustice has been done. It is a red flag to wake up, be aware, stay alert. That alerting might be to watch your back, be good to yourself, protect yourself, do not leave yourself vulnerable: "there are trip wires everywhere".

Listening to the global experiences of women's anger helps others better understand perceptions of anger in general. When gender, race and cultural  stereotypes are considered, anger and conflict take on a different dynamic.

SUBMISSIONS FOR ANGER STORIES ARE STILL MORE THAN WELCOME.

We will be moving about the city collecting these stories, so keep an eye out for us. Be prepared to fill us in and share with others how you overcame you …
