Bohemian Night is an effort to support the one thousand egg art installation produced by conceptual artist Michaelé Rose Watson, as discussed in Watson’s artist statement, conveying growth and creative energy.
The One Thousand Egg Possibility Theory
An Artist Statement by Michaelé Rose Watson
This installation is about growth. It’s about the unstoppable force of life that flows from one small fragile form to an out pouring of creative energy that just keeps growing.
We are like eggs always hatching new ideas, reaching for new goals, sometimes they succeed & sometimes they do not, sometimes those ideas take longer to hatch than we imagined. We are like eggs … if they do not hatch … there are always more ideas & goals to pursue.
I will be taking this installation to the next level and that level is in the streets outside Studio 323 New Bern Artworks Gallery where others like me will be doing what they do best, Create. What lifts all artists, lifts me too. The strength of this installation is about the power of Many, as the energy of the many is unstoppable. Every artists set-up outside this gallery, on September 14, 2012 is the result of their own conceptual evolution from an egg, doing what they do best, Create. The spiral form has it’s roots in our universe, it’s primal, it’s the beginning, it is where all possibilities become limitless.
We are the dreamers that plant the seeds of discovery to new realities, we are the eggs that hatch and grow or die depending on how strongly we choose to survive. The Power of the Many in it’s most perfect form, the egg is where the impossible becomes the reality.
Enjoy the creativity on September 14
