Launching a new enterprise

So, in my most Aries-like fashion of being excited about starting new things, this is the official launch of Mamarose's Reincarnations.

More and more I find that my art creation is focusing on reusing, repurposing, redesigning and rebuilding things that are readily on hand.

Perhaps we could consider this to be a kind of transition to "art as politics", and my work is beginning more and more to reflect my thought that we should be using what we have.

Right now I'm making a list of projects I want to tackle --- creating jackets out of cast off, oversized shirts; messanger bags made from old jackets; grocery totes woven out of plastic bags --- to name a few.

Whatever direction this goes, I'm sure it will be interesting!
