As part of the Capitol Hill Arts Walk and my Illuvium Show at the Vermillion Gallery, we poured 10 paintings in 3 hours with people from our Seattle neighborhood. A macro camera on a monitor showed another perspective of the flows.
Because people are pouring a liquid, they can feel the energy they are expressing in their individual gestures. They see what shapes that makes and how it interacts with what the other people are doing. Looking at these compositions together creates a sense of collaboration and neighborliness, which goes hand-in-hand with democracy and compromise.
