Lets play too

I met the artist Priyanka Rana at Johnson Park where a sculpture of hers had been on display for a few months, thanks to City of Palo Alto public art program. Her piece featured an assemblage of toys, that she installed in a frame of wood, that she gathered nearby and scorched using a Japanese technique, she said. I saw her spray-painting the toys a blue color, perhaps to connote our planet, which is three-fourths water. I also thought of David Middlebrooks, Anish Kapoor, Tom Friedman, David Smith is it.

Today the piece was gone — she mentioned something about the Menlo College show — and there was a set of objects in the footprint of her former artwork: some books, a mug, some plastic figurines. I mean to check back later.
