Why do I want to participate?

I am interested in this project as the idea of taking your own concept or experience of something everyone experiences  and producing a tangible piece is so exciting to me.  The challenges make me more confident in my art, more willing to 'go with'  it rather than to over think.

StayNoise Challenge #4: The Soundtrack

 

This song is a melodic love song – simple and lovely.  However, if you have ever been in a relationship that is somewhat tumultuous, I think you would feel the heartbreak, in particular the need – whether right or wrong or healthy or toxic – for someone to STAY.

Water LogNoise Challenge #2: The Little Things

 

There is a water leak in almost every home, it could be a dripping faucet or a leaky toilet, that wastes on average 10,000 gallons of water per year per household – almost enough to fill a pool.  This does not include the excess of water used by non efficient toilets and habits such as running water while brushing your teeth or doing dishes.  The sound of water to those who have it is taken for granted.

The Significance of the drip.

  • 780 million people lack access to clean water – that’s more than 2 1/2 times the US population, or 1 in 9
  • Lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills children at a rate equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing every four hours
  • By the year 2030 the global demand for water will outdo supply by 40%
  • WATER = LIFE

For us the Significance.

  • About 95 percent of the water entering our homes goes down the drain
  • Leaky faucets that drip at the rate of one drop per 2 seconds can waste up to 1,400 gallons of water each year
  • Running the tap while brushing your teeth can waste 4 gallons of water – think about a family of 4
  • Experts estimate that more than 50 percent of landscape water use goes to waste due to evaporation or runoff caused by over-watering

On a side note, in North America we are water gluttons… for example:

The fountains dancing above Las Vegas’ version of Lake Como consume about 12 million gallons of water a year… think of how this would affect a nation

 

looking for lifeNoise Challenge #1: The Pulse

When thinking of what the pulse of my city was i immediately thought conservative. Sometimes London, a gorgeous city, feels like a large workplace lacking the desire for culture and art. It is there of course with lots of interesting people who enjoy it, but it is tucked away.
