Driving home from the grocery store this afternoon I saw a child about 10 or 11 years old sitting on the lawn outside of his town home. I noticed him first because he was sitting there and then because he had a small dry-erase board that he held up as I drove by. It had a drawing of a man and a chair made with the dark blue dry erase marker. Awesome. I just got flashed with art. That is really interesting. Slowing down, looking in my rear view mirror. I saw him add to the image and hold the board up for the next car that passed. Awesome and awesome. How do we get our work out? The cycle of creativity is people to seeing the work and bringing the work to 'the people' like this young man was doing. Thinking about this I remembered the model that Amanda Palmer has created for herself. A very wonderful and supportive collective. People are interested in the giving , interested in the opening that she creates with her work. She gives the work and then asks for support. The way she describes her first days as a street performer as influencing not just the theater of her work but more deeply the human connection and caring of her music and her trust fall into her audience. And a trust fall into the creative process.
