Art Assignment incoming!

My triptych for The Art Assignment‘s project: “Surface Test.”

For the assignment I chose to take three rubbings, recording the floor/ground at the locations where I practice Kung Fu each week.  I spend on the order of 12+ hours each week training, and so these floors/surfaces have become a big part of my life.  The first is our Sunday spot, in a park; Tuesday follows at a local martial arts school; with Thursday and Friday rounding things out in my backyard on a covered patio that a friend and I poured specifically to support my martial arts practice.

I’m quite chuffed with how each rubbing turned out. I knew the surfaces were very different, but I didn’t know if that would come through in the rubbing, especially between the carpet and the smooth concrete in my backyard. But different they indeed were, and they made a far nicer compilation than I expected.

This was a fun assignment to do; and my third assignment completed. Four, if you count the joint effort at VidCon:

If you aren’t familiar with the Art Assignment, I heartily recommend checking out their channel and giving an assignment a try. I really like the assignment format, it makes one consider, and expand, the definition/breadth of art, and the assignments help bring the art of, well, art into our everyday lives.
