Bee, season 1 credits

How to explain the Bee, is, many media influences together, without more connection than happens in a person’s (mine) Mind. A continuous surf session on the phone while laying on the couch during Covid-19. Here are the elements and their sources, listed:

Lucy Price, and Megan Slattery, for motivational self inspiration.
Emma Pryde, for Glory Kitsch
Alexa Lee, the Bee Gardener
Racheal Bunting, for unlimiting exaggeration and metaphor
K Drama, for rich soup narratives and graphic design
WebToons, for serial stories
Emma Rodseth, for noticing everything, and bee Poet.
Afreeca.com, for livestreaming
The Hangers, for understanding and encouragement.
Peter Sparling, for A Month of Goldbergs

All my work now has a strong narrative content. I imagine and get to use more cultural connections than when I was an austere minimalist, as I was years ago. Of course, all-hail materials and process, but I want to fool around more now.

When trying to put a sculpture into a media-rich environment like Instagram, and you quickly see the use of series, video, storytelling, and music, it enlivens the subject matter. The art becomes the character in the center of a potentially star-building narrative system.

I create actual stuff, things, objects. I act with things in my environment, tools, studio, garden, home. I’ll continue to, because that what living is to me. Meanwhile, I don’t know what to do about the rich-media online environment. I like dipping into it, making a few comments, but I don’t really need it for anything, and it is a lot of work to maintain it well. For Documentation of Record, this blog here is a much better medium overall. It is all ultimately about finding a spot that can fully support all your madness, delusion and hallucination.
