Daily Photo: Celebrating Boxing Day With Mewsette, Today and Yesterday

Mewsette celebrates Boxing Day.

This is how Mewsette celebrates Boxing Day, but that’s every day! Today was special, though, and she really put all her effort into her latest creation. Afterward she settled into the box to contemplate if it had any more concepts to be interpreted. Apparently that was all the box had to say at that moment. I am left to admire “Unravelled”. She specified it be spelled with two “l”s.

What other photos have I shared on or around this date?


A New Box, and a “Happening”, 2013

I’m going to have a “Happening”?

You mean…I’m going to have a “Happening”?

Mewsette isn’t sure she’s ready for her artistic debut, but we all felt like that the first time we put out our stuff for everyone to see. You might call it an “exhibit”. But for those of you who aren’t familiar with the world of art and artists, a “happening” is something well beyond a boring old “exhibit”. It’s a multi-media work in progress where the guests are typically part of the event. We may call Mewsette a “Conceptual Artist” and the “Happening” an “Installation”.

Once Mr. Sunshine got His Lordship out of the new box yesterday, Mewsette had a chance to listen to it and was so completely inspired that she chipped all along the edge, vehemently biting large pieces off and tossing them to the floor below. I don’t like to pressure my Creative Cats where their inspirations are concerned, but I do think it’s time for Mewsette to share her work. I mentioned this to her and explained about the “happening”, and above was her reaction.

But soon an idea began to take form as she crouched inside the box—those are the best, she says, you can really feel what they have to say when you can sit all the way inside them—and thought about how it was to interpret what cardboard boxes had to say to the world, she decided she was more than ready to share her inspirations, especially what she was planning to do with that corner.

Mewsette senses what the box wants to say with the one intact corner.

After a few test bites on that corner she paused for a bit more and put her projects into perspective, in her mind, in her family, in this house. Yes, she was ready. Mewsette is truly looking forward to hosting her “Happening”, and all of you will be invited.

Mewsette did celebrate her “Happening” earlier this year! Read more about Mewsette’s technique in determining what the cardboard has to say and helping the cardboard to let it out in Cardboard Interpretation Artist.
