Dominic Wilcox’s latest project is a 30-day creation challenge. Each day for 30 days he will make something and the items that he has completed thus far (he is currently on Day 18) are now on exhibit TODAY through Tuesday in London at Mestakes and Manifestos (curated by Daniel Charny). If you’re in the London area, go check it out. You can also follow his progress on his blog Variations on normal.
Day 11: Beach Ball Chair
In his own words:
Each day for 30 days I will make a new object, installation or creative intervention while going about my daily life. At home, in the studio, on the train or wherever my day takes me, I will attempt to make something that interests me creatively and then quickly document it on the M&M website (and here) via photographs, drawings or video. Each day I will receive a small budget of £10 for materials.
I believe that this self-imposed project with it’s constraints on time and money will force me to take an instinctive and experimental approach. The fear of failure and the usual time spent thinking through the potential pitfalls of a project will not be an option and I will need to react swiftly to my thoughts, observations and experimental outcomes discovered along the way. I am not focused solely on the final objects or images but on the creative journey I take. Complete failures are expected and embraced.
