What’s On the Menu? – How About An Installation?

Ok Creatives!  We have 2 installations where the deadlines are coming up super fast.

  • (New) What’s on the Menu? – This idea came to me while I was sitting and having coffee with moushumi sen sarma who is participating in our Say Hello Installation.  I opened my menu at the coffee shop and thought it was super cool that they put what they wanted on the left hand side and then had what they offered on the right hand side.

I thought this would make for an interesting installation.   I will print a big vinyl text sign to go above the menus Which Say  “What’s On the Menu? Munich Artists Take Away ” or something along those lines.

The menu cards created by Munich Artists will be displayed underneath.  I want all of them to be A5 Portrait Folded two pages like the photo.  PLEASE No landscape I will not use them… you can make an insert but make sure it attaches in some way when open so that I don’t have to worry about it.  Please put your Studio number on the menu…. I want them to be able to actually call you.  Inside where you have the WANTS.

If you have an old time phone you can lend me for the installation that would be cool. I want to put a phone on the orange table in the window.   Fee for this installation is 10 Euro and a dose of good Karma.   I will make little postcards for this Window Installation that has Everyone’s First Name and Phone number.   Make sure you have a number you don’t mind sharing with the world.

DEADLINE for artwork to be at my studio is MAY 13, 2017

Explaining Munich Artists Say Hello 2017 Installation (English Version)

Deutsch

Welcome to our Say Hello 2017 Installation.

This year, I chose a small wooden box found at a local art store as the basis of each art object.

The box size was the only restriction imposed on the artists.  The artists were asked to use the box as the starting point for their art object but they had the freedom to create an art piece resonating with their art style and focus as long as it was no wider than 16cm.

In addition to submitting an art object made from a box, the artists submitted samples of their voices which have been merged into a sound piece called the quiet murmur. 

This year, our installation will be shown in three locations.  The first Installation will be spread out over several windows and is divided into three sections:  the murmur, the divide and the output.

The box melody installation visualises the art practice of Munich Artists, how artists keep their creative voices while working in a collaborative way with other artists.

The three components of the installation represent the following:

  • The murmur (Audio Piece from Munich Artists Voices) represents the harmonious voices of Munich’s creatives which inspire other artists to create and explore.  The audio pieces is divided into three sections to represent the development of collaboration which always starts with one idea.  An exchange of ideas and then the final enjoyment of sharing the finished art piece.
  • The divide (represented by empty space) represents the pause between inspiration and execution.  The time and space needed for creatives to take an idea and make it a reality.
  • The output (Art objects created by Munich Artists) represents the result of inspiration and reflection. It is the symbiotic and harmonious creativity of Munich Artists and demonstrates the uniqueness of each artist which is not lost as they  share their creative energy and talents with each other.

Because the installation spaces are all different, the installation will change at each location. We will share images of how the installation changes.

Welcome to the Say Hello 2017 Installation (German Text)

Willkommen zu unserer “Say Hello 2017” Installation

Dieses Jahr habe ich mich dazu entschieden, eine kleine Holzkiste, die ich in einem Münchner Kunstladen gefunden habe, zum Mittelpunkt der Installation zu machen.

Die Größe der Holzkiste war dabei die einzige Restriktion (maximale Breite von 16cm), die ich den teilnehmenden Künstler auferlegt habe. Die Künstler sollten die Holzkiste als Startpunkt ihres individuellen Kunstwerks sehen und diese, ihrem eigenen Kunststil entsprechend, weiterentwickeln.

Neben dem Kunstwerk haben die teilnehmenden Künstler auch aufgenommene Stimmproben hinterlegt. Diese wurden von mir in einer Tonsequenz verarbeitet, die den Namen “quiet murmur” (leises Gemurmel) trägt.

Dieses Jahr wird die Installation in drei Lokationen gezeigt. Die erste Installation erstreckt sich über mehrere Schaufenster und ist in drei große Abschnitte unterteilt: the murmur (das Gemurmel), the divide (die Teilung) und the output (das Ergebnis).

Die “Box Melody” Installation verkörpert die gesamte Bandbreite an Munich Artists Künstlern und wie sie ihre eigene kreative Arbeitsweise und Energie beibehalten und dabei trotzdem Kunstwerke zusammen mit anderen Künstlern erschaffen.

Die drei Komponenten der Ausstellung repräsentieren dabei folgendes:

Das leise Gemurmel zeugt von den vielen tollen Munich Artists Künstlern, die eigene Kunstwerke erschaffen und andere Künstler inspirieren und unterstützen.

Die Teilung repräsentiert die Pause zwischen dem kreativen Prozess (Inspiration) und der Erstellung des Kunstwerks (Ausführung). Es zeugt von der Zeit und von dem Raum den die Künstler benötigen, um kreative Ideen in die Realität umzusetzen.

Das Ergebnis ist schließlich der Arbeitsnachweis aus Inspiration, Kreativität und Ausführung. Die Kreativität des einzelnen Künstlers, der sein Talent und sein Kunstwerk als Teil einer großen Munich Artists Installation zur Verfügung stellt.

Da alle drei Lokationen eine unterschiedliche räumliche Dimension haben, wird auch die Installation eine leicht unterschiedliche Ausprägung aufweisen. Nichtsdestotrotz werden die drei Komponenten in jeder Lokation repräsentiert und dargestellt werden.
