Project:Moments Intercepted

"Caroline Kings"

Occupation: Artist
Location: Toronto

Why does this project interest me?
I am a very instinctual person. I am an emerging artist who creates intuitively, often without a plan, and I develop my ideas as I create. I am very interested in the spontanious aspect of this project and am curious to see what I could produce on a whim. I like that I can take an idea and run with it, stepping out of my boundaries, whereas I usually do mixed media an collage paintings, I may dip into photography or digital artwork depending on what is available to me in the moment. I believe this could be a very eye opening experience for me.

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

Last but not Least

So I was in Missisauga when I recieved this challenge, and was about to head back home to Scarborough. I thought it would be easy just to leave little tidbits behind on my journey home. I took 10 note-sized papers, and did doodles and notes on them, all with my blog address, some with my email as well. I was hoping for people to come along and find them on buses, trains, benches… ¬†Each one I folded up into origami, or just random shapes… some I gave to friends to scatter downtown and in Pickering. They say “OPEN ME!” or “UNFOLD ME!” or something like that. Here’s snapshots of what some looked like folded and placed, or opened up so you can see them.

if any of these put a smile on someones face, or made any kind of change at all in anyone’s day, that’s special enough for me. That’s all I want for my art and my life in general. If you found one of my notes, and are reading this now, thanks for investing your time in the little things, and letting your curiosity find me. Hopefully we will cross paths again one day.

I am gonna miss these challenges. If you’d like to contact me about my work or me in general email me at carolinekings08@gmail.com

Morning After Me

I slept in today, woke up, checked my messages and VOILA! Before and after shot. Easy! I was still in bed so I took a snapshot of me, and then showered and got all put together and took another snapshot. Here is what I look like Before and After:
