Celestial Navigation by hummbuzz Celestial Navigation by hummbuzz
When I recently posted the image Polar Navigation, a friend commented that she bet I could "do the same with real material".
She may not have realized it at the time, but she set me a challenge that I could not resist.
This is a work in progress, an interpretational assemblage based on that image.  It is far from being done, but I like where this part of it stands at the moment, so I thought I would take a break and take some photos.

So here you go, Hanan. This one is for you. :heart:



You may view the finished assemblage here:

I love your work and just like yourself I have been inspired. Your Weight of Words Unwritten
really spoke to me and I aim to get back to my art work.

I strongly see Marcel Duchamp's spirit in this piece. You seem to have the original artisitc energy of Paris in the Twenties living inside of you rating your portfolio. Very interesting work!

I'm glad you were inspired by Hanan's comment, for I also thought the other deviation was a "physical" assemblage at first.  I love the positioning of the netting in this piece. The movement it adds makes me think of some far off nebula and yet of coarse there's the naval aspect of it.  So many correlations shifting between the two really just make me grin.  I feel that assemblage pieces should tell stories and oh the stories this piece could tell.

this is strong!!!:clap: i wonder what would be in the end, but so far i enjoy it a lot, even i wonder circling around it in reality, but ok,. like Richard said this must be ''exhibited i a decent art house''.. agreed, yes,.. before two days i was collecting asparaguses and i found very old unicycle and i remind on your assemblages at that moment.. i would try to ride it, but well, i think that i would break it.. it's beautiful iron peace with wonderful interlaces of iron rods.. first i thought it some peace of chandelier, but then i realize pedals, and yes, great found..  anyway, respect your ideas and works a lot! :clap: we are intergalactic creatures dialing with what we can if we can! OK! :)

I am finally finished with the entire thing, and once I get some decent shots I will share them here.

I would love to see your old iron unicycle.  It sounds like an incredible find!
