Sort order. Aug 05, Story rated it liked it. A little empty, but I enjoyed the perspectives of multiple artists on their abandoned projects. DeMeng's art is something I've always enjoyed through flipping through his other books, though not so much his tone in this book. I can't exactly pinpoint what it was that rubbed me the wrong way. The photos are gorgeous, and the abandonment challenges seem like a lot of fun.
The real value to my mind are those essays written by other artists. I will say that this book was profoundly helpful to me pers A little empty, but I enjoyed the perspectives of multiple artists on their abandoned projects. I will say that this book was profoundly helpful to me personally, in recontextualizing my own projects and the complicated feelings I had about letting others know what I'd done in the past. I'd felt rather like I'd "done it for attention"-- as if that's bad?
People have been doing this for ages.
This book set off a realization that "for fun" is a perfectly acceptable thing, and that "attention" isn't just "look at meeeeeeee," but about connection and conversation and the spread of ideas. Sep 05, W.
When MIA started working in Savanette Haiti, there was no school, no clean water, no jobs and little hope. Turns out so many people wanted to participate that the project has been ongoing for a couple of years…and I finally had my turn! In her assemblage sculpture, she teases out notions of function and display by creating richly glazed vessels and locating them on top of or inside used furniture, such as armchairs, couches and tables, or balancing them on plinths of her own devising.

Bolm rated it really liked it. I think that every person who reads this book will have a different experience based on why they picked it up, but I found it to be very helpful both in the inspirational sense to get me motivated to make more art and in the practical sense to get me connected to the art abandonment community but also to actually start projects instead of just dreaming about it. I personally got a lot out of reading this and will be taking concrete steps to fill my soul with art on a more regular basis. Jun 12, E. I really enjoyed this book. It is full of great ideas and lovely art work.
I look forward to experimenting with this both on my own and with my daughter. Very cool concept. Aug 25, Tristy rated it liked it Shelves: how-to , art. I love the concept of this book and reading about the power of "abandoning your art" was really eye-opening.
Unfortunately, there is something off in structure of this book. My most favorite chapter was the piece written by one of my favorite teachers and painters, Flora Bowley. She I love the concept of this book and reading about the power of "abandoning your art" was really eye-opening. She and a group of friends made a beautiful found nature mandala on a busy intersection in Portland, Oregon. Her writing style and wonderful photography was really powerful and moving.
