Going to SXSW (South by South West) for the first time in Austin, Texas was an adventure. I wore a special outfit designed and built by Lee Armstrong, an architect. I painted some fine linen with black fabric ink and she took the fabric and magically turned it into this amazing outfit. The box I covered with the same fabric and so I was a walking art work. In the box I had seed vases, my Manifesto, collages by Valerie Fanarjian and 7 Gaping Void original business cards. It was wild. I walked around the convention center, sold a half dozen vases, 2 collages, several manifestos. Some people were in total agreement about my premise, which is art is everywhere and society is a sculpture. Some people ignored me. Others laughed, with me I hope. All and all, I felt stretched, in a good way.

Here are some pics for you - the last one - shot moments ago is my fave. I'd call it "reflections on manhattan - everything grows here if you give it time"
I've also posted some pics to flickr.
Thanks again - it's a lovely idea.

Here's my seed vase!
This was special because you gave it to me the very week that I moved into the first office that I can call my own (previously I was squatting in other people's offices). I love my new office and my seed vase. Thank you!

OK, it is now September. Back to school for some, for others, just back. Anyway, the seed vase project is on its next iteration. This month, the color is red. Professions (well, I like amateurs too!) are music and advertising. Zeroinfluencer told me ad men (mad men) are now called meddlers. Mentioned that to an old ad man this AM and he didn't get it. hmmm... Oh well. I like it. So, send me pics of your red seed vase with a short story, haiku or long story if you feel so inclined. I will take any color, actually.

Still getting my feet under this new iteration of the project. August is Sustainability month. The seed vase this month is orange. If you have an orange seed vase, please email me your picture and story. Actually, any color is cool. Send your pictures and words to mad.maryanne at gmail dot com
