…for an update.
A lot has happened since I last wrote in this blog. The last posting was way back in June. It was all about how I improved my “Invader Zim,” a Halloween prop from 2019. At that time, I had no plans to ever use him again, but it was a fun way to use my 3D printer. As it turns out, I DID get to use him again along with my pumpkin aliens, and a quickly assembled flying saucer. This year, I participated in the Oracle Glow event.
I also got a chance to display my “The Day the Earth Stood Still” inspired silver pumpkin robot. (I call him GORD.)
Quoting from the website:
‘GLOW! a nighttime art experience’ is an illuminated, out-of-the-ordinary, magical wonderland. Inspired by the mysterious full moon and alluring starlit sky, one is transported to another galaxy while transversing the 10 acres of outdoor trails – with plenty of room to roam. GLOWing artwork, multi-media installations, theatrical performances, projections and live music color the Sculpture Park, offering surprises with each step. Be engaged by the plethora of creative expression and community. GLOW! is an avant-garde art adventure where one can always expect the unexpected.
My display was call “Hey, Mister Spaceman,” and it was located right at the entrance. All of the art exhibits are displayed along trails, and most are illuminated. Some are interactive like mine. Of course, they look a bit different at night.
It was fun and I’m looking forward to the sold-out event on the 23rd of October. The guys were not designed to be outside, but they are holding up well. This year, my Halloween will have another central theme—Ghost Rider. More to come…
