It’s been an interesting year. I participated in a couple of fashion shows, completed the Fine Art Masterworks series I had been working on with the creation of Sandro Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus. and I spoke at TEDxRochester about large scale projects and where I hope to go with them in the future.
It’s time for the last Airigami project of 2009, and I’m excited that it’s going to be a public project. It will be fairly small scale compared to some of the others, and that means the focus this time around will be on interacting with the crowd. If you’re in Rochester, NY, stop by the Riverside Convention Center between 6:30 and 9:30 PM on New Year’s Eve. During that time, I’ll be building a sculpture with your suggestions. I have a plan and there are pieces I’ll definitely do, but the overall piece will change, based on feedback from the crowd. So Start thinking now about what you’d put into a snowman snowball fight.
If you can’t make it on New Year’s Eve, don’t worry. We’ll have plenty more in store for 2010, from school assembly programs to more large scale projects. We’ve been booking private events as well. And no promises yet, but my goal is to bring Balloon Manor and Elastic Park back. So many people wrote to me this year asking for them that I know it’s worth the effort.
