Installation art (virtual)

Art created in a large virtual space.  The art may use the changing views produced as the observer moves through the space and the changing shadows with sun angle.  Virtual installation could be used to show how a real installation would look if built. 

Installation art (physical)

Installation art is an artistic genre of three-dimensional works that often are site-specific and designed to transform the perception of a space. Generally, the term is applied to interior spaces, whereas exterior interventions are often called public art, land art or intervention art; however, the boundaries between these terms overlap.

    • Q: What happened to the Friday event notices you were carrying twice a month?
    • A: They weren't drawing enough interest and alternative sources came online.  I am now running a short  form daily near the top of this blog. A more comprehensive collection is in  Selby's daily news collection.

          All My Boats

          All my boats tied up to posts upon the docks,
          began to slip away.
          It was not noticed by anyone,
          their shiftings on the moorings,
          their pullings on the sailor knots,
          lolling in a windless, waveless bay.

          They tugged the whole night long against the ropes,
          to make their getaway.
          It was not noticed by anyone,
          when the lines began to serpentine,
          uncoiling from those knotted fists;
          flat and free they slipped through rings
          in a graceful snake ballet.
          I had a few I’d tethered even tighter than the rest.
          These boats had given endless joy; I never felt alone.
          Pretty in their sparkling lacquer, strong of hew and finely made,
          I sailed uncharted fearlessly, just knowing they were mine.
          It seems that Life is set, for everything to slip away…
          It all escapes our childlike grasp, and bobs into the waves.
          A sense of sadness lassoed me; I’ll miss them all.
          Oh, how I loved to paint their decks,
          to fly their flags, and sing their praise.
          And yet, they looked majestic as they floated out to sea,
          each forming wakes behind them, against the daylight’s dawn,
          their departure only noticed now by me.
