Dougie’s going places


Thing 22: Create a bridge. Connect two things in a creative way.

Today’s creation is simple yet steeped in philosophical and conceptual thought. Each element is chosen for its symbolism.

It begins with two paper sample cups.

The first evolves into the Earth plane.

The large green leaf (around the cup) represents the physical foundation. A sprig of purple buds represents life. The skeletal sprig represents death. The prickly sprig represents pain of human existence. The berries represent passions.

The bridge: coffee stirrers and twine.

The second sample cup, blue construction paper and clouds (styrofoam peanuts) combine to represent freedom from Earth, formlessness, the Great Beyond.

Bridging worlds
