rocks, The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child book (booklet produced by Human Rights Resource Center), hammer, black matte board, pinch pots, brush, paper
As part of an 8-artist-8-hour-event, the following three tasks are done constantly for 8-hours, with 3-five minute breaks:
Hammer rocks until they become powder, collect this powder in pinch-pots
Hammer rocks on black matte board to allow a constellation drawing to form
Read aloud the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child
I hope that you’ll think about these as layers, happening on top of one another.
My practice is deeply rooted in asking new questions, sitting in wonder, and finding places of balance where things can shift and slow.
Today my question is,
What happens when in the same place:
Rocks become dust
Children’s rights are spoken
Stars are uncovered, and maybe wished upon?
If you need respiratory, auditory, or visual protection they can be found in the wooden box. Please take what you need.
The booklets are yours if you’d like one.
You are also,
invited to join in in the reading aloud at any point.
While I will only respond with a continued reading,
you are welcome to talk to/share your thoughts with me,
this will be a different sort of conversation.
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child
was ratified 2 September 1990, by 196 countries, and every country in the United Nations except the United State of America.
