Hide And Seek: Hidden sketches marking my movements for you to seek and keep safe.

 

- concept: My work discusses the mysterious, or simply the things we cannot see and do not have access to. We trust that there is something deeper or beneath the surface (or white veil) but we do not know more than what our intuition tells us. When I began listening to Alan Watts's Out of Your Mind, I became obsessed with his idea of hide + seek. He says:

" So then, here's the drama.

 My metaphysics, let me be perfectly frank with you, is that there is the central Self, you can call it God, you can call it anything you like, and it’s All of Us. It’s playing all the parts of All Beings whatsoever everywhere and anywhere. And it’s playing the game of hide and seek with itself. It gets lost, it gets involved in the farthest-out adventures, but in the end it always wakes up and comes back to itself."

I loved the idea of the mysterious being within, but also that it was personified with an adventurous spirit. And thus, this physical hunt was born. 

-where you come in: I will hide sketches in my wake, and will invite you to find them. You, through your adventure, will seek something hidden and find something unique that was created just to be found and nurtured by you. Something that will hopefully help you feel more connected, bountiful and adventurous. 

-when you find: Let me know! Please contact me (email, instagram, whatever!) and let me know that the work has been found and has a happy home with you. Better yet, keep me updated on your adventure! Are you taking a scooter to go find it? Will you have coffee along the way? Is it a first date? Where will it live in your home? Will you gift it? Can I share your adventure to inspire others?

I would love this project to be a way that I can connect with more of you and help art integrate into your day-to-day life. I love to hear from you and I love to hear your stories-

happy hunting sweet friends!

How to use this map:

It's pretty simple. You will see three symbols on the map:

[green paint pallet symbol] sketch is still active and hiding! seek it! clue in the attached image, and also through my instagram stories. 

[red checked symbol] sketch has been found. you will see the image proof provided by the seeker, and the date it was found. 

[black ghost symbol] yep, this sketch has ghosted. sometime they go off to live their own lives and  we just never get to know.
