Project:Moments Intercepted

"Saundra McPherson"

Occupation: Artist
Location: San Francisco

Why does this project interest me?
I'm drawn to this as a collaboration, an opportunity to engage via a common language: idea, creative problem solving, intellectual curiosity.  The challenge of responding within 24 hours to a situation put forth by complete strangers is an exercise I'd love to take part in.  A virtual exquisite corpse. Looking forward to the game.  Thanks.

Challenge: *Challenge 8: Take a before & after shot

My before and everyone else’s after

Yes, I know, it’s pretty weird, but you must admit that gum on the sidewalk is mesmerizing.   Is that really gum?  Really?   Do people still spit out their gum on the sidewalk?   Who are these people?  Why does it cluster in certain places?   Patterns.   Marks left behind.


And after.

Challenge: *Challenge 6: Make your next meal a work of art

Chocolate self portrait


So who doesn’t eat chocolate as a meal once in a while?  I do daily.  One of around eight meals.  A perennial favorite: dark chocolate with almonds and sea salt.  At this point, I’m probably comprised of about 60% chocolate solids, so it’s a fitting medium.

Challenge: *Challenge 2: Make something old new

Three T’s in One Hour

Having requested my son’s purging of his t-shirt drawer, they were heading to the studio for use as painting rags.  I scavenged three of them, cut them up, and reassembled them into something new.   After the photos were taken they returned to the rags bag, studio-bound.
