This past week I had the pleasure of speaking to the Old Greenwich Art Society. The topic was "The Devil is in the Details" and I talked about using the crucial detail to make a piece "sing." As part of the presentation, we did a fun exercise using only security envelopes and a glue stick, backed onto computer paper. No scissors, only torn edges. Below are two wonderful examples from the class. And the great/sad thing about this project is that you probably have everything you need to replicate this idea at home already. But at least it makes paying bills just slightly more interesting.
