Last September, I joined the Special Agent Collage Collective. I completed a mission to the satisfaction of the Head Quarters (where agent 001 holds sway) and received my membership card short after. I am officially known as Special Agent 074.
I thought I’d show you the collage I created to become a member but it’s nowhere on my blog, so I guess I only put it on Insta then… This was the mission I completed: “Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to create a smiling collage and leave it in a public place. Materials are not provided for this mission, and it is up to you to decide what constitutes a smiling collage.”
I created a card and left it in the abbey corridor in Middelburg
(Later I got a thank you email from a woman who’d found my little art piece and took it home with her – niceee!)
Because I stepped into the collective later, we’re at mission #8 already… and here’s what this latest mission says: “Your mission is to celebrate a single color with a dazzling monochrome collage.”
I created a series of three mini collages in blues (appr. 3 x 4,5 inch – 9 x 11 cm each)
Here’s the stand-alone collage photos:
Because I was all into ‘blue’ I searched for a photo that had blue in it to write a haiku with… and found one that Lena took in October last year.
|Dicht tegen het duin.
Een eigenwijs strandhokje
weet niet van wijken.
|Against the dune
a stubborn little beach hut
doesn’t want to budge
I hope you don’t feel blue, and have a wonderful, colorful day/weekend.
