A Medium Everyday

04152014  Water’s Color’s, Ink and Victor


I began a project dialing random telephone numbers beginning with area code 512. I asked whomever answered the phone to describe either their best anecdote, a life-changing decision, a childhood memory or simply speak to me about what they were doing at the time. I explained how I was going to illustrate their words with ink and paint while they spoke.

The majority of the phone calls answered were confused elderly folk and directly hung up fearing I was “a’ solicitin'”.





No matter, Victor was in “pool” sales and maintenance years ago, “the built in types”.  One of Victor’s client’s child found light and suffocated in water’s (sic).  Victor was “Frog’s Ass’s Tights”, and never again would he “…even check the P.H. balances of pool’s  leave me alone”.  Worried, we spoke for two minutes.
