Theme Thursday #21: 10.15.09

This Theme Thursday is about unlikely or unusual art–art that happens because someone has moved the boundaries of meaning making into an entirely new direction.

Diana Adam’s microscopic photography is both beautiful and incredible. Learn about the world you live in while knowing that the world is an art project.

Sam3 started with the idea of a shadow, and then moved the figure of a shadow into urban art.  Sam3 also uses a bottle of water, squirts it and makes art not only from the splash, but as it dries. And then, of course, there’s the animation. . .

Crooked Brains started with a clothespin and went way, way beyond the clothesline for the art.

Oh, and one last one you can join in on, even if you don’t think of yourself as an artist. I’m creating art from other people’s words and art–that they send me on postcards. You get a do-over on something you left unfinished, I get to make interesting books. See the story and details here. Join in, I’d love to hear from you.
