Play the Game!

This is a working scale submitted to the “Rock, Paper, Scissors”  show in Whitby Station Gallery.  Show runs from December 10 until January 8, opening reception Jan.10 at 1 p.m.

It looks simple but it took a long time to make, longer than I ever expected, not to mention the concept itself.  But who cares now,  it’s fun to play with those bright coloured buttons and thread. It’s good to feel like a kid once in a while!

The game is a simple one, originating from a fortune cookie message that said my wish will come true. Think a thought, wish for something, hang a button.  If  you balance the scale, you win, your wish will come true. Ha!


A Convincing Argument

The latest addition to the Ball People series, an armchair philosopher, a cross between Voltaire and Sartre,  complete with a Russian hat of course.  The reversed print on his back is taken from this Oscar Wilde quote:

“Arguments are to be avoided: they are always vulgar and often convincing.”
