3. Dimensional Dreams BY Becca Priddy aka shiny (new)
Artist Statement: Art is an outlet for many people, and I'm lucky to be able to put my art into physical form. Art has been very therapeutic for me, helping me focus my anxiety and depression. This year I am creating a piece, with other artists, to help share places of calm and peace. I have a very difficult day job, so building a project based around mindfulness and relaxation is pretty awesome.
Dimensional Dreams will be a 6 piece project. In simple terms it is a 1ft cubed box sitting on a 48" pipe. Inside the box, which you view from the front, are layers of laser cut acrylic, sitting vertically, with lights creating a scene. I am currently collaborating with other artists to design 3 of the boxes for SOAK. The funding from SOAK would make it possible to make the first 3 boxes, out of the total 6 that will be made. These boxes will be designed around the theme "Places You Go To Relax" whether it is real or imaginary.
"I am designing this project so that I can set it up myself!"
4. Drippin Disco BY Alexander Griffith aka Xander Thumper & Amy Thompson (new)
🐝 Artist Statement: I am a full time Fiber Artist by day. When my GF and I lived in San Diego years ago we made several large scale disco balls for Youtopia. I think the last one was in 2015. They were highly well received. With the move and getting situated up here, we've been on hiatus. Last year we brought our Tea stand to Soak to dip our toes back into the community. We're ready to bring the lights and disco!
In years past we've had large 30' domes that housed the discoballs. We want to build our own metal dome that's 8' tall. The dome itself will be half covered with spandex to show a human skull. People can get up close with the spinning art.
