Project:Moments Intercepted

"Andrea & Rodman Spilling"

Occupation: mixed media artists/writers/performers/collaborators/absurdists
Location: Venice, CA

Why does this project interest me?
Rod and Andrea are both process-driven artists invested in how creativity helps you grow, embrace change and become more aware of your relationships and did we mention BE SILLY and PLAY MORE. Andrea works intuitively and embraces found moments, words and objects. Rod is simultaneously spontaneous, absurd and loves the profound meaning discovered in what's considered ordinary. We had an enlightening AMAZING time playing in this new creative community. xoxo DRE: ROD:

Challenge: *Final Challenge: Leave behind something special for someone else to discover

Anonymous Art Offerings

You are my co-conspirators. This is the beginning of many “anonymous art” projects leaving art behind for others to discover in my community. Cultivating creative acts of anonymity on Venice Beach, CA. We made charms and gave them away to children on the boardwalk celebrating Independence Day. It was an amazing experiment involving contemplation and dialogue regarding perception, anonymity, peaceful communication, improvisation, safety, celebration, aesthetics, inquiry, curiosity, inhibitions, culture, documentation and always joyful play. If you feel inspired send us a post from your ‘hood.

We will miss you. xoxo Rod and DRE
