Notes for the installation - Binding...?


THE CONCEPTS ON BINDING

Notes and observations
Was a bit conflicted about the terminology and definitions of Binding and Fury  so ->

· Binding - an act of transformation - as the process of making one thing into something else – an alchemy - Binding to transform.

· The Fury Project - not trying to provide definitive answers but to open a pathway for exploration and interrogation through these art forms

· The “tree” - a live object of grounding something to lean on peaceful, visual beautiful, representing growth, movement, age and wisdom (the ring)


Ways to deliver the installation
· Binding vine-like limbs to initially cover jukebox. It could potentially give us a heads up on how long we have to actually make according to our desired design, to what kind of size the tree might grow to in that time and how pressed we might be for the fabric gathering. ->
extensions from the jukebox and supported structure around it.

· Format of poems, writings, sketching. Charcoal, pastels other art materials for binding?


"O how can it be that the ground itself does not sicken?
How can you be alive you growths of spring?
How can you furnish health you blood of herbs, roots, orchards, grain?
Are they not continually putting distemper'd corpses within you?
Is not every continent work'd over and over with sour dead?" 
- Walt Whitman

The Fury Transformation Installation @ Urban Dialogues

Here is a short film about Urban Dialogues and How the Fury Project came to be a part of it.



Packing away the Transformation Tree

It was the last day of the Fury porjecy tree and before packing it down I had to hug it. It had been a taxing process but so invigorating and thought provoking, as so many people had left a imprint on the tree, sharing their stories, binding and then adding thier energy to the vines of the tree. 
Cherrelle and I ate a slap up Thai meal to celebrate. We sent Katie pictures of our food, and cyber High Fived her by text, while she choreographed  in sub zero conditions for the Russian Winter Games.  
And so The Fury Project get taste of what it feel like to be a concrete piece of visual art with film and stroy telling at a button from The Fury Transformation Jukebox.However, this is not the end of the project, nor the the final exhibiting and performance of the Tree. There is more to come. Watch this space. Zena
