Found Art Friday 265

Dear ones,
Next month, we embark upon our ninth year at The Department of Homeland Inspiration and we wish to welcome your participation in this appreciation of art/Art /"art" in everyday life.  Found Art Friday is a forum for observing while living with an eye-asking frame of mind as one moves about the world and its inhabited pathways.  Art Ranger watches out for art:  hence a sampling/review of our way too many images:

You too are more likely to not have an established art enterprise or publication in your midst today, yet (art) is potentially all around you in moments of perception, noted, somewhat recorded.

During these past eight years of nearly weekly blogging, our (smartphone) use/over topping has blossomed into a full-blown brain extension/ human algae bloom that we are trying to understand as we speak. Meet Powerama: live documentation of a recent performance by the artist on this topic. She raps, she rants ....
We originally started this blog on the suggestion of a dear friend, poet Stacy Doris who now has departed this dimension.  An experimental way to keep things rolling during the thick of the child rearing years when a ten minute segment of time might need to suffice for our art practice that day.

At times, we needed to be able to distill art out of wall, a parking lot, out of a dog walk, a reflection, or more recently out of being assaulted by the spray of the absurd tragicomedy of our nation state.
How does this shiny rectangle of obsessive documentation interface with and inform "photography?"
We feel like Claude Monet of intricate changes in light on the same (now dry) pond. 
Yet, this blog endeavor is still about art. How we frame things. The lens through which we interpret our experience. And what Art of other humans has lodged in our brain to color it?

Please send us images or thought contributions from your own Department of Homeland Inspiration, because "Life is the most interesting thing on earth" as our mid-west then Florida grandmother accidentally said.  Send to:
