Looking for the Light

Two important shows that keep me afloat creatively this year.

First, this painting will be part of CANVAS' 10th annual Looking for Juan Outdoor Art Banner Project on August 18, 2018, at the Bulwagan ng Dangal, University of the Philippines Diliman (UP).

I made 10 banner art already, YEY!

So Hungry for the Light

Hung-er under a different kind of light.

And this box is part of another exciting CANVAS show:
Tumba Tumba Children's Museum of Philippine Art: A Proof of Concept Exhibit
19 June to 27 July 2018, 1F and 3F Galleries at the UP Vargas Museum.

I was given an old shoeshine box to turn it into an art piece. 
At first, I was thinking of a mini diorama but later realized that the object needs to be something interactive and educational for kids. 
I saw my old pinhole camera.

I turned this shoeshine box into a camera obscura.

"The Real Power of the Universe is Light"
wooden shoeshine box, magnifying lens, ceramic plate, cloth, acrylic and phosphorescent paint
dimensions variable

A mirror is just reflected light.

Small hole that lights another world inside. 
How amazing this would be on a larger scale like a whole room!
