No Matter What Shape - The Archive


My Photo
Location: Syracuse, New York, United States

In its short-sightedness, blogger has turned its back on those of us stuck with old operating systems and I'm forced to find a new blog host. You will now find MickMathersARTblog at - use the direct link found in the masthead and remember to update your bookmarks. This place will continue as another archive for a large body of my work. As many of you know, my primary medium and working method is digital collage composed of manipulated photographs often combined with digital drawing & generative images. Netlabels, bands and musicians can view samples of my CD Cover Art at Mick Mather Illustration located on Tumblr. In another life I was an Arts & Culture consultant specializing in revitalization planning through creative public art projects and programs with Economic & Community Development Departments of towns, villages and cities. In these hard financial times this work is more important than ever and I still accept consultancy inquiries. You can contact me by email at:

Disintegration Admiration Project: Final -

"Stimulus Package I (Final Documentation View)"
digital photograph by Mick Mather
- click on image to view full size -

Seth Apter's Disintegration Collaboration calls for final documentations today and here's mine. Sometime between installation and March 31st the project achieved it's objective, maybe. I suspect that the piece was pulled down by human hands and thrown away as opposed to being blown down and set upon the wind. You can see some of the early documentations here as well as "Disintegration Admiration - The Movie" a short scroll below. I'll be posting more about this tomorrow at MickMathersARTblog.

Yes, bitter sweet covers it nicely ... well said. :)

Lisa Sarsfield:
Thanks for these reflections on the piece. As one who's been doing more than a few land art sculptures over the last few years, temporary is a term I've been forced to become familiar with. :)

OK I'm not so nice. I think it is rotten for people to destroy that which is not theirs. I do like your photo. Are you going to try again?

Ginny Gaskill:
Well, the piece was in a common area and I have only the suspicion that the removal was by human hands. I got a good bit of documentation during the short time it was there and, whatever happened, the disintegration was accomplished. We do have a lot of crows, ravens and hawks here ... it's just as likely that a large bird carried away the whole thing en masse for a nest.
As for trying again? I had my chance and toyed with the idea. In the end I decided to let it be. The next step is to create something from the piece of installation string that was the only remaining bit of this project.

a place to begin....the noose? no!! the means to tie it all together into where that little string takes you. yours is a GREAT attitude, being what it is.
what it was?...oh, such a joyful memory, dancing around in the wind! i'll play your video clip again, and maybe make something to swing and flip and spiral around on a tree in the yard here, homage to the piece that got away!

Speaking of what it was and what it is, don't forget to look at the side-by-side before and after comparison - that is, if you haven't already. I'm delighted that you enjoyed the video and want to revisit it. I'm even more delighted at the possibility of an homage to this piece in your own BIG back yard. I loved the arch documented at your blog by the bye ... did you plant and train this beautiful piece? Maybe an homage to that in my BIG back yard, eh? :)
