Blue-1: RAIN

The blue story Chapter 1: part 1: RAIN by Daria Lanz Rain. I’m not sure Elise realises how pertinent this word is for me. The word is loaded with IRONY. I left Vancouver 2 years ago. One of the things that drove me nuts about the place was how much it…

Blue-2: RAIN2

The blue story Chapter 1: part 2: RAIN2 by Elise Mullen Why did I give the word RAIN to Daria? Honestly, It was raining a lot that day in Calgary… I didn’t want to over think it. Keep it simple and see what happens… So in the previous Blue story…

Blue-3: PUDDLES

The blue story Chapter 2: part 1: PUDDLES by Elise Mullen Keeping in theme with the Chinese whispers, we don’t want to stray too far from our previous word, or at least make sure there’s a link between the words. My inspiration from the RAIN pieces is PUDDLES. I choose…

Blue-4: REFLECTION

The blue story Chapter 2: part 2: REFLECTION by Daria Lanz This is our first real experience of Chinese Whispers in this project. It was the first time I received art from Elise and had no idea what word she used. I had to guess. And then I had to…

The blue story Chapter 3: part 2: IMAGINATION by Elise Mullen This is the video I placed with Daria’s recording. How it should be viewed it in a dark quiet room so you concentrate on the clouds and the recording along with it. How I displayed it to finish my…

Blue-8: NATURE

The blue story Chapter 4: part 2: NATURE by Daria Lanz I stumbled in my front door, fresh off the plane after a 2 week hiatus in Japan. I was exhausted—jet-lagged from the 8 hour difference, my body didn’t know what it was supposed to feel anymore. I clumsily pulled…

Blue-9: FIBONACCI

The blue story Chapter 5: part 1: FIBONACCI by Daria Lanz Back in high school, Elise and I shared many math classes together. We were pretty good at it, and we actually enjoyed the subject quite a bit. We weren’t shy about this fact either. Anyone who knew us, knew…

Blue-10: FIBONACCI

The blue story Chapter 5: part 2: FIBONACCI by Elise Mullen My guess for daria’s word is… FIBONACCI! Only because Daria and I were big math geeks in highschool… I know super cool. It took me a long time to figure out what I wanted to do with this piece….

Blue-13: LANDSCAPE

The blue story Chapter 7: part 1: LANDSCAPE by Daria Lanz London has an amazing skyline. It’s a complete mash-up between the very old, and the new. Earth had me thinking about, well, Earth. And, of course, my place on Earth. I wanted to explore a more positive concept for this…

Blue-14: HOME

The blue story Chapter 7: part 2: HOME by Elise Mullen My guess for Daria’s Blue 13 is HOME. Daria drew some famous London site with white line work and watercolour negative space. I would love to know how she made this! Daria’s Blue 13 is beautiful and detailed. I assume she drew this…
