Beadgee project page
Beadgee is based on the book "Three Young Rats and other rhymes", a collection
of 19th century nursery rhymes + drawings by Calder.
Beadgee includes around 30 new original drawings that accompany a selection of
rhymes. These drawings can be reassembled. Users are invited to explode the
drawings (gizmos) and build new gizmos from chosen parts. In the process, words
from an associated rhyme will be linked to the chosen parts and will construct a
new sentence that will accompany the new gizmo. An on-line gallery shows these
no/copy/write relates to Beadgee through users participation, through
appropriation and through the act of replacing parts of an original creation
with my own creation. The act of creation is dismantled and shared with users.
The project was commissioned by Impakt.nl and realized in Israel in 2003 as a
part of the "art of narrative" competition.
