An Experiential Artist I like
I came across the work of experiential artist Lee Walton. I found his work to be both fun and thoughtful...I'm a fan!
His projects include:
This video series where he pulled objects from a string he had attached to them.
He re-enacts his friend's facebook status updates. I like that he's using social media as a jumping off point.
...and this one where he engages strangers in conversations from a specific bench. He records and shares these conversations.
I think it's great that he's connecting with everyday experiences in new ways. As artists we're often killing ourselves to make some huge statement while all along our own environments are whispering really great ideas to us.
