It remains over 100 degrees outside, and sometimes closer to 110 many days. So, sometimes I still grab the container of Lego® building bricks, sit where the AC blows on me, and just get lost in the process of seeing what new things I can make. There’s almost always a chicken. If it’s different enough from a previous one I may photograph it before disassembly. Last week, I made another black chicken, plus a furnace monster. Many kids who grew up in cold climates with a big noisy glowing furnace in the basement will relate to that.
Besides these, there was one I called “The Pink Tower,” that I used my other blog to discuss recently. It began as simply stacking same-sized but different colored bricks. http://cindyschnackel.blogspot.com/2013/07/connotations-pink-tower-1-and-2.html When it was done I thought it looked like a pink tower. Then my husband added a mini figure of a judge, and it took on all sorts of possible meanings beyond what anyone might believe was in the original. I love that aspect of art, that people can see meanings of their own. In some art, there is a definite correct meaning, but not always. And not sure I’d call the pink tower ‘art’ but some would, if for nothing else, because it might invite thought and controversy.
