@lee_ann3 back again for week 6 of #sharedview // I placed @carelsari ‘s color-pencil-on-paper drawing in a quiet corner of the space. It’s pretty bare, as we just wanted to carve out a little nook for #reading #studying #chillin 🙇🏽‍♀️🙇🏽‍♀️🙇🏽‍♀️ Of this work, Sari says the suite of #drawings, PRESS PLAY, is a companion to her outdoor sound and sculpture installation called THE SHAPE OF PLAY. The PRESS PLAY series acts as an annotation of sorts to the soundscapes Sari recorded for the installation, visualizing this peculiar moment of pandemic connection, mediation, and community building. #onshow through June 2 // 💰💸🤑 inquire with @_collectiveview_

@maalva_studio here, end of Week 6 of “Shared View”. I’m posting a new work by @carelsari to add to the works in my home as part of the group show #sharedview by #collectiveview @_collectiveview_

 

Check out Sari’s IG talk today at 3pm!

 

I’ve placed Sari’s piece next to my accordion (an instrument I use for improvised play) at the top of my living room bookshelf.

 

“The playground, instead of telling the child what to do, becomes a place for endless exploration, of endless opportunity for changing play” – Isamu Noguchi

“This suite of works on paper is a companion series to my recent public sound and sculpture commission titled The Shape Of Play, which opened in 2020 in Boston’s Waterfront Park at the height i of the pandemic. But more on that journey tomorrow :)

 

The Shape of Play approached city playgrounds as sites full of resonance and sound and ventured into the vital role play has in community and creativity. For this commission, I recorded in playgrounds across Boston, capturing each playground's resonance and sound.

 

Press Play is a visual annotation of sorts registering this extraordinary experience of producing a large-scale public art project in the height of the pandemic. Exploring the field recordings from which the soundscape was composed, forms, lines and rhythms from the piece are revisited and bits of ephemera such as string, paper and discarded pennies found in various nooks and crannies of the urban space.

 

Press Play unfolds as a series of meditative vignettes in color and form of what can be lost, and found on the page, and echoes the sounds of playgrounds as environments rich with aesthetic possibility.”

As I add each piece to my space, I learn about the broader practice of each artist. I learn how each small work serves that broader practice. Each piece signifies a refusal to be stoppered by the pandemic. They are evidence that work keeps moving.
