The Ant and the Grasshopper

IN a field one summer’s day a Grasshopper was hopping about, chirping and singing to its heart’s content. An Ant passed by, bearing along with great toil an ear of corn he was taking to the nest.
“Why not come and chat with me,” said the Grasshopper, “instead of toiling and moiling in that way?”
“I am helping to lay up food for the winter,” said the Ant, “and recommend you to do the same.”
“Why bother about winter?” said the Grasshopper; “we have got plenty of food at present.” But the Ant went on its way and continued its toil. When the winter came the Grasshopper had no food, and found itself dying of hunger, while it saw the ants distributing every day corn and grain from the stores they had collected in the summer.

Then the Grasshopper knew:
“IT IS BEST TO PREPARE FOR THE DAYS OF NECESSITY.”

Day de Dada Mandala Mail Art Table

The word Mandala means “circle”. A Mandala represents wholeness, a cosmic diagram reminding us of our relation to infinity, extending beyond and within our bodies and minds.

The mandala appears to us in all aspects of life, the Earth, the Sun, the Moon and more obviously the circles of life encompassing friends, family and communities.

Day de Dada Ground Mandala (by Margaret Chase)

People decorate the Mandala with found objects – keeping the pattern balanced.

Dumpster Cookies at ETG

March 31, 2016

The Dumpster Cookies brought their fast and freaky Performance Art to ETG Book Cafe recently where they made a stop on their East Coast tour. The Cafe cleared the floor putting the tables and chairs up on the stage and let the Dumpster Cookies have at it. Props were tossed out to the audience, tiny hats were donned and masks worn – our disguises part of the show.  The Dumpster Cookies danced.  Per Dumpster Cookies own description, the performance fuses “pre-recorded music, dance, theater, sculpture and projections … set in a world of animal instinct, mob mentality and jungle night terrors.”

Rebecca Jane and Blake Godesy, are a multiple disciplinary performance art duo known as “Dumpster Cookies.” They use societies unwanted “trash” and up cycle it into Interactive Art. They hail from Charleston, Carolina and formed in 2011.

“One of our favorite things is people interacting with our art,” Jane says. “We make people masks. They let people become interactive. It lets them realize that they’re in it … so everybody in the audience is in a costume with us. They’re part of it. They’re part of our installation.”  – so Dada !

“being in the surround” -Rebecca Jane

Db Lampman showed her film “Home” which is an experimental video inspired by the experience of pregnancy
and is an exploration into the idea of the womb as a place of origin.
The audio track is composed of recorded actual womb sounds that have been mixed
so that they are sometimes comforting, sometimes menacing, sometimes hypnotic.
